Since then, I've been a little busy, pre-admission tests, and my own work to get out of the way.
Then I had my dreaded surgery, and that went great, with not too much pain, and a scar that is not too bad looking. I am so relieved to have the tumor removed, and my lymph nodes. It eliminates some of the fear of the cancer spreading. I am now downgraded to stage 2 breast cancer! My hair is coming back, I have a little crew cut.
|A visit from the littlest family members just delights me and makes me feel all better! |
The best medicine!

Beverly made Roasted Pepper Potato Soup, whole-grain goodness pancakes and delicious omelets, for breakfast and we caught up on some Blue Bloods episodes and saw some good movies!
My nieces, sister and mother came to visit with flowers, wedding soup, and cinnamon buns.
After a couple so-so days back at home, at first I didn't feel as good, but I've been steadily regaining my strength. I'm having less discomfort and getting all the appointments scheduled for the next phase of treatments. I've been busy with follow-up oncology and surgeon doctor appointments. Next I will go for physical therapy, CAT scan, an dexa scan. Then radiation will begin at the end of March for about 7 weeks.
Today I went to an endodonist, because they want a root canal , which we've been putting off, to be completed before the radiation begins. I really wasn't afraid, but it wasn't my favorite place to go.
It's funny, that verse was hand written on the back of
note paper that I wrote the directions to the endodonist on !
God goes with me- even to the root canal doctor!
I miss the babies, because I can't lift, so I am not babysitting, but I am getting to see them
and visited just yesterday. They seemed to grow a lot on the days I miss being with them.
|Goodness gracious, she has cut 2 more teeth, her 2 top teeth, |

last two weeks, since my surgery!

I know I have changed. I hope I can give back lots of love that I am being given, and be worthy of His love too!
Thank you for your continued prayers and hopes for me!
