One year

I wish I knew how to add my post a year ago today. I went back and read it and it was just as painful as when I was given my results last year. So much has happened. If you would like to read you can go back. I remember waiting for what felt like forever to get my results and when the call came in it was the beginning of one of the hardest journeys that I have taking or watched someone take. I look back and can not believe that I have made it this far. I have had my ups and downs. Chemo was scary and I hope never to have to revisit that again. Surgery was tuff but I am glad I did it. Radiation was tiring and painful. My body took a major hit and I am still here. I saw the neatest saying last week. The first day you are diagnosed is the first day you are a survivor. Sometimes it sounds weird to even say it. I am still so raw and I consider myself still battling. I am not sure when you start letting the fear go. So much has happened and I know there is so much more to do. My girls have been through a lot and they have done so good with everything. I was lucky to have my family and Mike's family take care of the girls and myself. I could not have done it. My dr and care time worked hard to keep me going during all my treatments. My friends here and in blogland were amazing. The power of prayer brought the Miracle that I wanted. So I thank you for that. Thank you for wearing the bracelets. AS I continue to walk this journey I am still given Him all the Glory.

One year down and looking forward to the next. THANK YOU!

Packing packing packing

OK so I am soooooooooooo tired. I have had 3 days in Greenville to pack some stuff before school starts in Charlotte. I am sore and tired. I have been by myself. It is a good thing because me and the big man upstairs have been talking a lot. Tomorrow is a big day for me. I am glad that I have been too busy to dwell on it. Anyway off to jump in the car and head to see my husband and then my girls tomorrow.

Thanks for praying for me:)

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
