Gratitude and curse words.

June 6, 2017 | 2 Comments

Anyone who told me radiation was a piece of cake, I have no good words for you. This is not like a bad sunburn. I am not in and out. And dammit, it is not flying by. I hurt. I can’t move my arm correctly. I have to keep my arm up all day so […]

Last year, on this same day, I wrote a letter to my daughter on her first birthday. I told her about how much I loved being her mom and how much she meant to me. My love for her has only grown in masses over the year. My hopes for this blog and that letter, […]

February 11, 2017 | 1 Comment

It’s been a few weeks since I had my last chemo. I’m not sure I’ll ever get sick of saying post chemo, I’m done with chemo, oh, I finished chemo a few weeks ago. Feels so good. I’ve been trying to make decisions about surgery and just slowly getting better. I have finally chose my […]

What a day…

February 1, 2017 | 5 Comments

Today has been one of the most emotionally exhausting days in a very long time. I’ve been a wreck because I knew my pet scan was today. Sleep didn’t come easy last night, or for the past few days for that matter.  My mind is just running everywhere. Did the chemo work? Has it spread? […]
