My cancer update !!

Hello, well its time for my breast cancer up date!! I'm 5 weeks post operative double mastectomy. My incisions are pretty much healed, and the pain is much better than before. I have the strength to make it almost all day. I cant lift anything very heavy, but now I can sleep on my sides!!! I'm not having any trouble with self image. I have gone from a DD to nothing and I'm OK with that!!! It is actually easier to be flat chested than bald which I was just a year ago after my Chemotherapy. Sometimes I just wonder when it will end?? The lump that was in the right breast was once again invasive ductal cell carcinoma !!! How on earth did it survive all the torture that I put myself through to get rid of it and it survived...

With no breast tissue and no estrogen I hope that I can stamp out this once and for all!!!! I wake up each day and know how blessed that I am!! I'm a survivor, I will win this fight, I will not give up, not now and not 10 years from now.

little cuttie


what a little cutie pie!!



While I was taking her picture I mentioned that I was old and couldn't get around as fast as she could. She looked at me real serious and said "your not real old like a granny" so I said really, how old do you think I am??? She thought about it a second and said "old like 12". I guess to a 5 year old if she knew how old I really am would scare her to death !!!

Schautzie is 5 years old and just a delight!!! She is still spunky and feisty yet always loves a long nap. She gets so excited when I get home, even if I'm only gone for a few hours!!!

A day with Charis, My Sweet Pea

Today Charis and I spent a special day together. I picked her up and the first question she asked is wheres Papa??? As I explained that today was our day and Papa was working she was ready to go, and I do mean GO!! Most of the day I spent trying to keep up with her, she ran and ran. I was wanting to take pictures of her but the only shots that I was getting were from behind!! I CANT WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN SOON!!

I call Charis My Sweet Pea, and she calls me her Sweet Pea !!! Papa is her Best friend!!

I'm 4 weeks post op now and my time away from work is turning into a much needed vacation. I'm feeling so much better, I can drive now and do things that I took for granted.

Moms trip from Las Vegas


Recently Mama flew to Las Vegas to meet up with her dear friend Carla. (that I'm not named after) She stayed and visited with her family for a week, relaxing in their new homes and swimming in the pool!!! They had a good time but Im always glad to know how soon are you coming home!!

They drove back thru the scenic Grand Canyon. I'm sure they had some really interesting conversations on the long way back. I can just imagine them laughing and cackeling about various things..


Mom is looking all spiffy!!! looking good!!
