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 overall was an okay day. I started the day barfing which was no fun (just a fun part of cancer;) and then just hung around the house with my parents and the girls. I am so happy they are here, I’d be lost without them. I wish I had more to blog about, but with almost 10,500 views I feel the need to say something to my fans, lol:)

I’m getting excited about the upcoming article in the paper. I am nervous about what it will say, and what I’ll look like, but I know a lot of good info will be in there too. It should be in the weekend edition of the paper this week. Today for some reason I reflected a lot on my chemo and how I wished I was almost done. I have 2 behind me and go in for the 3rd next Wednesday. I soooo wish it was my 8th and last. I feel as though sometimes I am at a standstill. I so want to get these 8 treatments over with that’s all I think about. It floods my brain most days:(

Tomorrow I go in for my bloodwork and check my white blood cells. Last time it was 1.6 and that is pretty crappy. I also feel like I may be fighting off an iud and that’s not helping either. So, let’s just hope for some high numbers and good news:)

Well, I better head off to bed.

My good note: John I miss you and can’t wait to see you Thursday :)

Attached is a video that always makes me laugh when I am down. I filmed it when Sophie was small and also fighting a cold. It’s called “Things that can eat Sophie.”
