Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Today I was emotional. I’m not sure if it’s because I miss my husband, or other things…. but I am. Part of the day I felt bad for all the nice things people are doing for me, and how I’ll never be able to thank them or tell them enough how much I appreciate it. So, I felt bad.

My dad knew that John was gone to Chicago and decided to take vacation from work and spend it with me, mom, and the girls. It meant a lot:) It was such a nice gesture and shows what a good guy my dad is. Taking vacation to come to no where Rolla and not do much. It was sweet, and I love him for that. He is making this week a lot more fun:)

I’m attaching 2 youtube videos I made for my sister in law Claire. She needed them for a work thing. I did my best to tell my story, but then later thought I did a bad job. I looked at the videos and picked them apart. My face was splotchy, my teeth were weird, and overall I looked sick.

For the first time I looked at a video of a sick person….and that sick person was me:( I realized I do have cancer and it will take a toll on my body. It was just a lot to absorb at once.

My good note:) I miss my husband, so that means after almost 11 years of marriage this gal still has a thing for her man:)
