Hi all: It's been a long battle for me so far, but I am slowly coming through this. I have three chemos left and god willing I will be finished on July 15, 2011 ( 16 more days to go). Had a little set back yesterday as my hemoglobin is down and I have to have a transfusion on July 5th( Tuesday) but they are still going with the 3rd last chemo tomorrow.
I have been staying strong for the most part. Somedays I have a cry by myself just to let out the emotion I am feeling. Physically the scars may heal but emotionally and mentally those scars are going to take sometime to heal. I am remaining upbeat that I will beat this and have to count my blessing that they caught it early Stage 2, even though I was having no sysmptoms. The Lord gave me great doctors who went beyond the call of duty and were dilligent.
While I am sad that I am not working at the moment this has given me time to spend with my four year old and I won't change that for the world. She is so wise beyond her years and helps mommy when she is not feeling good. She and my husband are my whole reason for fighting as hard as I am. I want to live at least 20 more years to see her graduate from university.
My doctors say that I am on cruise control and and cruising through this and they haven't seen anyone like me before. As the end gets closer I am getting more emotional about it all, but I have learned I am stronger then I ever thought I was and a cry every now and then is a good thing.
I hope that everyone else who is surviving through this horrible disease is doing well. Faith and hope and determination are getting me through this. Until next time.
