It has been a year and a half

Time sure does fly when you are having fun! Since my last post I have been to see my surgeon. I go on Monday to get a mammogram. I won't lie and say I'm not a bit nervous. I am sure everything will be just fine but a part of me a a bit afraid. I know fear is from the devil but it is still how I am feeling. My surgeon thought perhaps what I'm feeling in my breast could be scare tissue. We will see on Monday. She also took some blood work but I am sure if anything was adnormal she would have given me a call. I feel pretty good just tired but I am working a lot of hours these days. I'll write more Monday....

Happy Mother's Day

It has been months now since my last treatment. I'm doing great! Lots of changes in my life. The company I have worked for for the last 21 years is closing down. It has been a part-time job for my husband and I since that time. I quit my accounts payable job 15 years ago this month, to stay home and raise my children. The route is something that I could do and still home school my children. My three youngest children have never know anything different than mom doing the paper route and cleaning the church. I praise God that at least my children are now at the age where they don't need me here as much and I was able to get through all of my Cancer treatments without having to worry.

Monday starts a new chapter in my life. I start a full-time job at the U. I'm excited and a bit afraid. I know that God has had His hand in all of this. Even the timing of all this is great!

As for my Cancer!! I'm cancer free at this time! PTL!!

One year ago Today

One year ago today I found out I had stage 3 breast cancer. My life has been crazy this past year but I pray all that is behind me now. I feel almost 90 percent back to normal. I saw my Oncologist last Friday and she said it was now time to start Tamoxifen Citrate. I started on that on Saturday morning. We will see!
I have to take one pill every day for the rest of my life.

I have my first Mammogram since all of this on Thursday. I'll let you all know what happens.

The next Step

Well, I have good news and bad news to blog about. The good news is that I'm done with the therapy on my arm. The bad news is my Oncologist will no longer be taking our insurance as of April 30th. I'm still not sure what to do about that. I don't really know what roll she will be playing in the next five years. I don't really know if my oncologists is the one who requests scans, blood work, Mammograms or not. I have my next appointment on March 13th so I guess I'll find out what is going to happen then.

I get my port removed on Friday and that should be the end of all of this for a while. I guess they will watch me for the next 5 years and if they don't detached any more cancer they will tell me I am cancer free. I'm still just taking one day at a time and enjoying my family and friends. All of which, have been very loving and supportive.
