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:

So, tomorrow is chemo #6 of hopefully 8. Trust me it does not get any easier each time. Each morning before, I wake up sick to my stomach and would rather be anywhere else in the whole world besides chemo. It is no.fun.period.

Pretty soon I will start to broach the subject on what happens when I’m done, and how we know I truly am “done.” I also see my surgeon this week and pray everything goes well. Also that the lump under my mastectomy scar is the same size and hopefully still nothing to worry about.

Since all this has started I have turned into a person that worries…a lot. Everyday I am scared I will get a phone call or a letter in the mail with bad news. I’m scared almost daily….and that’s no way to live. I wish it was something I could easilly change, but sadly I can’t. Everyday I just try my best to think positively and pray for the best. That’s all I can do…that’s all anyone can really do.

Here are Sophies graduation photos I got today. It will be a year I’ll always remember and nothing made me happier than seeing her beautiful face:) All grown up and ready for Kindergarten.
