All I Want For Christmas.....

Besides a miracle and no chemo on the 27th? A Amazon Kindle. Can't wait to try it out, it looks like there is a new app where you can even cruise the internet with it. How fun, to be able to check email, etc. and not whip out the old laptop!! The girls are acting like royal pains in the neck. They do this every year and turn into possesed monsters right before Christmas. Driving us nuts, I sure hope that they simmer down so we can enjoy the two weeks of their break.

Poked and Proded!

We'll I have finished the last major test ordered by the doctors today. I have been injected with radiation and ultra sounded on every part of my body. The next test is a simple blood test then they start the chemo drugs flowing into my body. I am praying that my body tolerates the drugs with a minimum of side effects. One thing for sure, I am going to lose my hair. Ordered a wig today so I am prepared. I spent so much time growing out the bangs and layers of my hair and it is all going to be gone in the next month or so. Figures that I will be finished with everything the first of July. I made reservations to go camping for a week at the Oregon coast in August. Am so looking forward to having some time to rest and kick back away from the summer heat.

Long Time Gone

Wow, can't believe it has been a whole year since I my last post. Lots of things have happened, some good, some bad. The worst is that I was diagnosed with breast cancer in early October. Now, two surgeries later, I am waiting to see what the chemo doctor has in store. Following chemo I get blasted by radiation. Can't believe that I have cancer, no family history but it is the card that I have been dealt and I am going to deal with it like I deal with every other obstacle in my life, head on and taking no prisoners. There is only one option in my mind and that is to beat the monster and go on with life. I will be here for my girls!!!
