4S's Awesome Camera + iPhoto App + Therapy

Many of you don't know this, but I'm recovering from CyberKnife Radiation Surgery for a brain tumor. Part of my recovery is photo therapy - it gets me outside, it's cognitive, makes me focus, use perspective and it's what I LOVE to do. I keep an iPhoto Journal of my recovery process to remind myself that on my bad days - when I can't walk, talk or hold a pencil - that I have good days, too, and I am still spectacular!!!

Today was a good day. I was too tired to walk upstairs to get my big expensive camera, so I just grabbed my iPhone (also, in case I fell and couldn't get up ;-).

Here's some of my best snaps. Not bad for a chick with 1/2 a brain, huh? (Nate - That was not an invitation for a comment from you - I was a Marine, Nate was in a different branch - he thinks he's superior to me - even with 1/2 a brain, I still win!!!! BooYah, Nate).
















Other photos taken with the iPhone 4S from my journey to Oz (Stanford) to see the Wizard (Dr. John Adler, the inventor of the Cyber Knife) to get a new brain.









































The moral to the story here - sometimes life sucks. You can either shrivel up into a ball and let it win or try to have some fun and fight back. The iPhone is making it much easier for me to fight back!!!!

Cheers,

T.
