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

      So here I sit....realizing that time seems to be rushing by & I am still not very consistently posting...not that I think I have lots of earth shattering stuff to is just that when I think I am all ready to be more consistent with posting...I have an incredibly tired week and barely make it thru the things that HAVE to be done... forget trying to do anything beyond that.
     On the upside....I only have 7 radiation treatments left....break out that happy dance!!!! They sure didn't exaggerate when they warn you you're gonna burn.  I of course assumed it would be a serious burn but in a concentrated area...WRONG!!!  My burn goes from the middle of my breast bone across to my side and from my collar bone down past my last rib.  I actually had to go buy a soft BIG night shirt to live in for the next 5 weeks because they don't want anything touching the burn...DUH!!! As if they didn't come to that conclusion on my own.  I am sore and radiating heat off me like I was an electric space heater....but I am NOT blistered....YET.
     Other then the daily trips to the hospital for treatments....which...can I just VERY bothersome since I had hibernated all winter and didn't go I am up and dressed everyday...bummer really...I have developed sort of a friendship with my pjs....LOL!!!  What these trips have done is to get me reconnected with some dear friends I have known for 30 yrs and just lost track of.  They have stepped up and really taken great care of me and driven me to all my appointments without being asked...they just jumped in and took over not waiting for me to ask for help...definitely a "tender mercy". 
     Now with  some wedding plans mind is racing with "all things wedding".  What a GREAT distraction for me and bonding time with Random Wisdom.  We had the first dress fitting this week ....what a special and fun thing for us to share.  I am truly blessed with a great relationship with all my children.
