Hello NED!

6 month post op CT came back NED! Woo hoo! Having this parasite grow inside me has been an interesting experience. It has taught me that life is short, do what you love and follow your passion . I start school in the fall for an LPN program. Nursing is something I love but I was too scared to go back to school for. I just felt I needed to focus on getting money to have a good life for the kids etc.. I'm doing something for me thats going to make me happy and will make better money in the long run. Not going to be easy but I'm ready! Just had to share that. I'm proud of myself and looking forward to the future. If cancer comes back, I'm ready! Bring it on!

    Thank you everyone!

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm excited for the future. I'm done being worried all the time. I spent too much time with anxiety and depression these last 6 months. Just need to focus on my boys and my future. 

     

    Take care everyone!!!

    I am so happy for you. I'm so proud you are going back to school. After all your kind messages to me I know you will make a great nurse. You have such great compassion for others. I have worked in healthcare for over ten years I loved every minute. I'm so thankful for all my experiences and patients. I'm so happy for you and your children.

    That’s great advice Step. I

    That’s great advice Step. I too fell into a slump after my wife’s diagnosi and while it’s always in the back of my mind I just one day decided I’d rather walk in faith rather than walk in fear.

    Again......so glad to see your good news
