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:

I don’t care what type of surgery you are having…it sucks. You will be in pain, they will stick you with needles… and at some point you will be brought to tears. Guaranteed.

Today has been a lond day. It started off with no sleep last night. Then, I went to the hospital and was admitted…they immediately drew blood.. big fun. Then it’s IV time. On the 4th try they finally got it and I had tears rolling down my cheeks at this point.



I have bad veins.. can’t blame them, just my stupid body revolting on me yet again. ;)

Now we are prepping for surgery. I’m all marked up and ready to go. My port is coming out and he is also cutting off the scar to make a new cleaner one. TT is going bye bye (refer to earlier posts;) my other breast just needed to be less “pointy” ;) and then on the radical mastectomy side a mass of skin was removed that was left over. So…. just a bunch of fun was had by all ;)

I woke up in agonizing pain, like usual and couldn’t get it under control. I was told by 3 different people that maybe I should “stay the night to receive meds.”



No way! I wasn’t staying. So, I took my pills and relaxed…. and eventually was ready to roll!

So, now I am home in bed with ice packs on my chest :) Lets hope the medicine works… because I still have a 5 years party to finish up, and a Doctors appt. Friday with a doctor about my leg pain (chemo)

Thanks for all the prayers, lots of love!
