Responding to you

Good Morning:) So I know a have a lot of lurkers who never comment that send me emails or contact me on facebook and I think so much of all of you. This last year would have not been the same without you. I just wanted to respond to some of you. I have been told that I have not been posting enough and that I have not been updating my health enough. The last few months have been crazy. I am still trying to sell my house in G-Vegas and my husband is working at the MEPS. So we have been traveling back and forth so we can see him. It seems every time I am in one of the cities I need something from the other...chargers, sticks or plugs for something. It gets so frustrating:( So as of Sept I will be better about posting. I love it.

As for my health I have had lots of appointments in both cities. My apt on Thurs went well. I really like the new oncologist. I saw my breast surgeon on Monday. He was so sweet. He was very excited to see me. He said that I was looking great. I was healing wonderfully. He said that I was going to start feeling much better and looking more like myself in the next 6 months. So I am going to start taking my picture on the 1st of every month so I can see for myself. How am I feeling? I feel pretty good. I have my days. I still get tired and my endurance just is not there. The one thing that I am dealing with now is lymphedema. Since my lymph nodes have been removed my arm swells if I do to much. It is such a pain. I do have a compression sleeve that I wear so it helps.

Update on whats new with us. The girls are doing great and the Army is keeping Mike super busy. (still waiting on his number for promotion) We are going to the mountains for vacation on Sunday. Yes a week in the mountains. Fun fun fun:)

Well there ya go. Sorry I have not been as good as I was but I promise to get better once things slow down. Thanks for praying for me!

Have a blessed day

Glad to hear that you're doing well! I got the bracelet in the mail but just got back from a work trip. So I'll take a few pictures for your daughter this weekend!

You sure do have a lot going on, but you are sounding as optimistic as ever! Have a wonderful getaway...the mountains are very refreshing.

P.S. Love your photo-a-month idea, too. If nothing else, it gives you a day to check in with yourself--in the midst of everything else--and do an honest assessment. That's a smart move on your part!
