Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Well, I am soaking my sore legs and thinking of my upcoming surgery. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared. Anytime you go under, you have a fear you won’t wake up. I know in my heart I have a great surgeon and hospital, and that would never happen. But, I still get scared.

This surgery is not nearly as scary as the last when I was losing both breasts and starring down the barrel of 4 months of chemo. I will be happy to see my port go bye bye! They will also remove my side breasts and fix my front a bit. Hopefully it won’t be too long of a surgery and I’ll be home in the afternoon.

One other quick bit I’m not happy about. Since chemo ended May 29th…. I have lost EVERY SINGLE eyelash and eyebrow hair!! Damnit! I was doing so good too. That last treatment must have put me over :(

Enjoy some photos from Chicago!

Anyhow, better get to bed! xoxo
