Grateful and a Tiny Update.

I would like this to be more of a gratitude post, but at the end I do have a quick update on whats up with my health these days. First as I have looked back at the end of last year and up to now of this year, I have so much to grateful for. My cancer could have been a lot worse. My prognosis could have been much worse. For this I am truly grateful. I have healed really nicely and the scaring is really not that bad. It could have been much more disfiguring considering how deep they went and the fact there are two incision sites. God has truly been good to me. There is a part of me that thinks I went through this process to encourage others. So far we have had two new employees at my work place. One was the friend I posted about earlier. The second person was part of the management team. She has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her cancer situation is almost identical to my cancer. I am so grateful that I was able to help her through educating her on what to expect. I sat there and cried with her because she is so scared. Okay, just a quick note about my progress. I went to my radiologist oncologist today. Everything is looking great, as I said before my breast have healed better than I or the doctor expected. I have three doctors following me with this cancer. Actually four if you count my family doctor. I am battling bronchitis right now and am taking Cipro and predione. I am not feeling well at all but when the antibiotics kick in, I expect life will be better. Take care my friends and God Bless.

Short update!

Hello my friends! I wanted to update my blog on what has been going on with my journey. The good news is I am almost completely healed from the radiation. I still get tired by 2:00 pm every day, but I guess that is par for the course. The new medication I am on is suppose to cause my bones to become brittle. I have to have bone density test quite frequently. I had my first one today, it took about ten minutes. Nothing to that at all. I have to go for another mammogram ,week after next. My surgeon had called the hospital to give them an order.I was not expecting this, it came out of the blue.But I am praying for good news! Today a friend at work confided in me that she found a lump in her neck. She had lymphoma in the past in her spleen. This poor lady has been through so much. If you would graciously remember her when you pray I would greatly appreciate it. Her first name is Jennifer! Jennifer is just the sweetest person, but she is struggling to keep it together right now, she is fearful her cancer has returned. Hope you all have a great weekend.
