A momentus event

I have no idea how this happened. It was not planned. Its significant (but not the cure for cancer we all want).

This my blog's 2000th (two-thousandth) published post. Back on Saturday, June 2, 2007, I had no idea my blog would be around this long.

I planned a little blog about my breast cancer adventures. It sort of developed into a life of its own. I had to blog every day. And I did. I very rarely skip days - usually this only happens when I am out of internet range.

Even if I hadn't developed new ailments would I have kept blogging? Probably. Its an addiction. It would probably be more a blog about my cat/husband/garden/adventures, than just health. Wouldn't it be nice if I didn't have so much 'health' to write about.

Blogging has been a great outlet to me. It has helped me through the cancer roller coaster, it allowed me to meet wonderful people both on and off line. It has opened a whole new world in term of how to be a patient in the 21st century. And its a lot of fun.

I guess I'll keep going. I have a few more blog posts lurking in my brain and a bunch of new ailments to get under control. Do I have 2000 more in me? Who knows. Only time will tell.
