Josh is in Boston

on September 17, 2008 - 5:39pm

I wish I could've gone to Boston to see Josh. However, I was out too much because of my surgery, etc. It's kind of upsetting because Boston is about 60 miles from where I live. So near, yet so far. Oh well, there's nothing I can do about it, except hope he tours again!

No use getting upset about things I can't change. Besides, I'm lucky I'm done with my radiation treatments and hopefully I'll never have to do that again!

My cancer treatments are over! I feel pretty good! I just wish I could get my husband to understand that I'm not a child. Enuff said.

Today's follow-up

on May 28, 2008 - 3:38pm

I had my follow-up visit with the doctor today. My bandage was removed....YAY for that! It was giving me a rash. I have a pretty big scar on my right breast and I'm still black and blue.

I have to have radiation therapy. I'm going to see her next month and that will get set up.

Did you ever have a nightmare you couldn't wake up from? That's what this has been like. Just when I think it's over, it isn't.

My surgery was yesterday. It went well. I'm tired and sore, but very glad to have it behind me!

The anesthesiologist was a HUNK!!! Dark hair, blue eyes...nice smile...YIKES!

Thanks for everyone's wonderful comments and the prayers!

The worst words ever said to me

on May 17, 2008 - 3:37pm

I want to share something. The only reason I'm sharing is because someone said something to me recently that could be construed as hurtful. Not that it wasn't hurtful, but it wasn't the worst words ever said to me.

No, the worst words ever said to me recently were from a doctor who said..."I'm sorry, but you have cancer."

After hearing that, nothing hurts me anymore. In fact, I'm coming to realize how precious life is.

I don't care who knows I have cancer. It doesn't bother me. In fact, I think it's a good thing because maybe someone will realize it can happen to anyone.

I don't mind about the cancer. Right now, my prayer is "Dear God, please don't take away my ability to sing. Please don't take my voice because that would hurt me deeply."

God Bless and please hug those you love tonight!

Smiles everyone, life is good!
