Radiation…Thank goodness that’s over!

It’s been three weeks since finishing my radiation treatments, and I have to say that it was the hardest thing I have physically had to endure so far during this journey.When I found out that radiation was recommended, I thought it was going to be something I just had to go and do, and that’s it.… Continue reading Radiation…Thank goodness that’s over!

Last chemo and beyond!

It’s finally over!  June 1, 2016 was the last day that chemo entered my body. (You may join me in a happy dance!) I didn’t get much of a chance to enjoy the moment because Levi was pretty sick and needed to see the doctor. Me or Jonathan couldn’t take him, seeing as we were… Continue reading Last chemo and beyond!

Chemo #14

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. I barley made the cut, but I did it! Chemo #14 is in the books. My counts are still low and I can’t seem to get them raised. Dr. Nair said these last four treatments would be difficult on my body and may cause some delays and he was… Continue reading Chemo #14

Through this broken vessel, may Your light shine

Chemotherapy #13 is complete and in the books! So far nausea hasn’t been as bad as last time. Thank you Jesus for that blessing! Only two more chemo treatments to go. Today is my 40th birthday and I have to say, having cancer was not in my plans. My plans consisted of being fit and healthy,… Continue reading Through this broken vessel, may Your light shine

Cycle #5 – New Chmotherapy

Last Wednesday, I began my new chemotherapy and boy is it different. I had to sign a consent form before the nurse gave me one of them. It is called Adriamycin, nicknamed “red devil”. My nurse has to push the drug into my iv to insure that it goes into my veins and not the tissue.… Continue reading Cycle #5 – New Chmotherapy

Chemo #11 – Last day of Carboplatin and Taxol

Whoo Hoo!! Last Wednesday, I finished the Carboplatin and Taxol! Since my body responded so well, I don’t have to make up the one I missed. I am a happy girl right now! I get this week off, which couldn’t have come at a better time. The last few weeks have been my hardest yet. I have felt every… Continue reading Chemo #11 – Last day of Carboplatin and Taxol

Psalms 31:1-4  I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord, and he… Continue reading Chemo #6 and Praises

A Time For Rest

I had my PET Scan this week. This will let me know if I have cancer somewhere else in my body. Can I just admit that I am scared?! I have told myself, what are the odds that I will have it anywhere else? I mean come on, I already have two different cancers! Surely I will only have it in my breast… Continue reading A Time For Rest
