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

Someday I will remember to double check my posts so they don't sit in "draft" instead of posting like they are supposed.....ARGG....oh well, chalk it up to "Chemo Brain"...and yes...I will pull out that excuse as long as I can....just sayin
6 Months and 1 Day...
I would have to say...looking wasn't that bad....a few really lousy days BUT NOTHING like I thought or envisioned it to be.  Don't get me wrong....cause my true feelings are....
Would I do this again? -  NOPE (unless I had to)
Could I do this again?? - YUP (if I had to)        
Should I have to do this again?? - NEVER (not really in my control)
I do realize that might not be the feeling or view of those that have been closest around me thru all this.  (Maybe it is the same brain trick that happens after going thru labor...forgetting the really hard parts).  Has my body paid the price...NO DOUBT!!! (I can't believe how much muscle strength I have lost...VoR has to actually open jars for me...what's with that?!?!?  Fatigue....can't even begin to describe how crazy it is (they don't kid about that) BUT....faced with the alternative....I will take all this GLADLY!!!
There have been such a HUGE amount of vastly different blessings that have c0me as a result of this!!!  I couldn't ever be able to list them all even if I wanted to but I have to start with these.... 
                              TOP 5 

* Our family (extended too) bond stronger
* My faith in & relationship with my Savior
* Feeling all your love & support
* Friendships strengthened & renewed
* New friendship formed                       

I had a dear friend ask me if this would be the end of the Blog?? 
It isn' life is forever changed.
I will always  be a breast cancer survivor with my future written in
"just a little hint of pink"
