Apostle Hope Carpenter

Church was awesome tonight. The guest speaker was Hope. Her husband has a big church in SC. She really spoke to me tonight. She reminded us that God does not always work the way we want Him to. That He is always good. She reminded us how important it is to study the Word. She said we have do what His word says and live by it everyday. To be obedient. She said to know what God promises and follow His guidance. She said to wake up everyday waiting on the devil so we are not surprised. She said to become more intimate with God by reading His covenant which is our agreement. We need to read it for ourselves and not hear it from others. I encourage you to start a daily journey of building a relationship with Him. I will pray for you:)

AS I stood at the alter, Hope placed her hands on me while praying for continuing healing I sang this words. It was amazing.

Day19 Radiation

Check out those eyelashes and eyebrows growing-happy girl

Well this week radiation is getting to me. I have been so tired first thing in the morning. So I have been resting a lot. Here is a picture of the burn that I am getting. Not liking that too much. I look forward to having a break over the weekend.

I have had a lot of question about how my weekend was. It was fabulous. The girls and Mike were very excited. I am looking forward to them coming here tomorrow. Please pray for them to have a safe trip. It is suppose to rain.

Winner for the first giveaway will be posted tomorrow. I hope you enjoy wearing it. It is very popular here. Everyone is always asking me where I got mine from. It was one of the first things I got when I was first diagnosed. Next week will be something monogrammed so make sure you visit soon.

I am thankful for all of you! Please pray for my last few weeks of radiation.

So I will be doing many giveaways in the next few months. Help me celebrate.

It is time to kick this

First of all I want to thank all my family and friends for stepping in and helping out with the girls. They all seem to have had a nice day today. I am looking forward to hearing it in detail.

Kim thanks so much for taking care of Alexa. Sharon thanks for taking care of Savannah and Madison. You both are great Moms and I feel confident that you can handle it for me:) It takes a lot of worry off me.

Steph and Jonny O thanks for opening your house and looking after the girls.

Mike thanks for being flexible for the girls. I know it is going to be tough but you can do it.(maybe not as good as me HA)

Day 11 of radiation is come and gone. Praise God for that! I have PT tomorrow after radiation.

Pray for the girls and Mike to continue to get settled.

Pray for me. I have a few things that are bothering me and I hope they are nothing. So tonight if you will give a Praise for getting me to this point and Pray for complete healing please.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am so behind on everything. I think I may have missed some one's birthday so I am going to check on that right now.

Alexa's decision and we support her

So after our meeting as a family Alexa made the decision to withdraw from school here in Greenville and start school in Charlotte on Monday. Yes I said MONDAY! I tried everything I could to get the county to make an exception. Answer is NO! So I have been running like crazy getting the girls ready. OK so I said GIRLS! This cap on the schools effects all three of them. So Mike and I decided to enroll all of them to get their spots. They all were enrolled 2 yrs ago and it was a wonderful experience. So we will see. Mike is going to have his hands full. He will be taking on working and taking care of the girls. I am going to stay back here and finish my treatments and sell the house. I am so going to miss the girls. I have never been away from them for more than a week. They are going to come home on the weekends. So what do you all think? Are you shocked? I am. It hit me when I saw Alexa's friends crying today. It breaks my heart. My girls have been through so much. Lord please watch over them.

One more thing thrown in my lap! I am being pushed and tested but I am pushing through.

Lord give me the strength.

Day 9 of radiation is done!! I am beat from a very busy week. Pray for our travels tomorrow after radiation. Sending much love!

Lord I Pray that you touch my skin and tissue.

Lord I am sending Praise to you for all my friends who are stepping up and helping out with the girls. I love you all.

We had our meeting

This a long and crazy story. So I hope I can explain this right. You all know that the Army transferred Mike. We have the house up for sale. So the plan is move over the summer and get the girls ready for school. Well we had something thrown on our plate. I am so often compared to someone in the Bible and his name starts with a J! Lord give me the strength The county in which we are moving to is over capacity and they are not enrolling anymore students after the 18th of March. They are not giving enough time for families to react. So all along I have been telling my daughter that everything is going to be OK .You are going back to your friends. Well now I have had to tell her that she will have to go to another school that is farther away and start fresh and pick up her life her and leave it behind. Or she can stay here. She has friends, A student, loves her teachers and has a little boyfriend. So what is a girl to do.......

To be continued!

Day 8 went fine. I did not get to see the doctor yet. Thanks for praying and I look forward to Praising God tonight at church for getting me this far.

Day 7 Radiation

I finished day 7. I think I see the Dr tomorrow. I have some questions. Why did I get x-rays yesterday and today? It so freaks me out. Is something being hit that is not suppose to or it is just routine? So far I am doing fine. I had PT today. It is a great time because I am trying to keep stretched because radiation tightens the skin. Thanks for praying for me. Pray that radiation does what it is suppose to do and nothing more.

Going to rest


Saturday, March 7, 2009


I was so not going to post until tomorrow or Monday. Mike is on his way here and we are going to have our family meeting but....

My eyelashes are growing back and I am about to go crazy. I am so excited I can not stand it! I want to jump. I want to sing and dance. Yippee for me. Its the little things that make me happy:)

Have a beautiful weekend

Hoorary Yippe Haha....

I am done with Day number 5 and done for the week. Thanks so much to Pat and Sherry for helping this week!

Radiation feels like how you feel after you have been in a tanning bed. It has been 15 years since I have been in one but I remember that feeling. Your skin feels hot. You have that tiny bit of sunburn feel and you have the chills a little because the wind is hitting you. So that is how I feel right now. I am putting pure aloe from health food store on every hour and I am also stretching. Not sure if it is going to help from getting too burnt and loosing the elasticity from my skin but it is worth a shot.

I am having to make big decisions this week about moving and the girls. So please pray that I be lead in right direction. I will blog about it tomorrow.

Thanks for standing with me and fighting for me. You all are the strongest Prayer Warriors and I am glad you are fighting this battle with me. Off to PT now:)

Love Cindy
enjoy the weekend

Radiation Day 2

Day 2 of 30 treatments. Well I feel fine. I did take a short nap today. I am trying to keep my strength. I do feel a little sunburned. It has been so cold here so being outside has been very uncomfortable. If you have ever been sunburned and you get the chills that is the way it feels. So I can not imagine how it is going to be if this is only number 2?

I go to my oncologist tomorrow after radiation. So I have bunch of questions. I have not seen her since Dec 31. I will be getting my port flushed. Icky-Yucky- I am such a wimp:)

Thank you for praying for me and walking with me everyday. Praying for complete healing. Praying for protection during this next few weeks.

Love Cindy

Radiation Day 1

Not sure what to think. It does take longer to get set up then the zap itself. I am keeping aloe on the area right now. I figured if I kept aloe, drank a lot of water and stretched maybe it would make it a little easier. I am not sure though? So if you know anything or have some advice for me...speak up:)

Mike is in Atlanta for a meeting this week. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law are here to get me use to my new journey.

Pastor Reggie thanks so much for coming to radiation with me. The Power of Prayer is what I needed so thanks for coming to pray for me.

Thanks to all of you for praying for me and believing. I am praying for complete healing. Lord thank you for giving me everything that you give me. I thank you for everyday.

So continue to pray for me as I start this journey.

Love Cindy
