And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

     Let me start by apologizing for the lack of posts these past few days and add a disclaimer that it may be slim reading for the remainder of November. I have been and am being blessed with family visitors so my blog time will likely be spent visiting. My plan is to post at least once a week so you will continue to know how this is going.....and while we are on that subject.....
CHEMO #3 - done!!!!
     As of right now....a repeat of last week so I feel really good. I am a smidge more tired but that could have to do with the fact I could not sleep last night...I got a couple hours but by midnight I was up and there was no going back.....ARGGGG!!!

     I have had a great time playing quietly with my sis for the past 6 days....I know she feels like I pushed myself and didn't rest enough but I was feeling good and I would not change a single second!!! It's not like we did anything real exciting or strenuous except for her last couple days....the poor girl was being drug from hospital (new PICC line) to oncologist appointment and blood work at a different hospital....back to the first hospital for more blood work.....that had to be repeated a 3rd time early on chemo day. THANK HEAVENS FOR THE PICC!!!!! .....then finally back to the hospital for my chemo.

     She never complained about being drug from hither to yon.....she is a real trooper. She is and always has been such a blessing in my life. We figured out that she had actually gone away to college when I was 10yrs old and we only spent a few years together later when she returned from her mission. You can see that these times we get to spend just us are very precious to me. I love to just get to reconnect with her and just hang out being sisters. VoR is such a great man....he just steps back into the shadows and insists we spend time together and not worry about including him in anything while she was here...except for the night we watched Star Trek (the new one)....he can never pass those up...tee hee.
It was a great 6 days....
Thanks Sis...
For always being there!! You're such a huge inspiration to me!!!
