Breast Cancer Sucks!!


I have an update for everyone on the breast cancer issue.

Last week I went to see the oncologist to talk about our plan of attack and this is a summary of what he said.

First of all he said that the cancer that I have is coming from two sources.

One is estrogen.  One is HER2.

The HER2 is a very aggressive cancer and is what causes the rapid growth in the tumor.

The size of the tumor ended up to be 2.7 centimeters.

The surgeon took out nine lymph nodes, which is all the nodes in your armpit.

They were all cancer free!!!!!!!

Now, back to our plan, we are doing chemotherapy using 2 different medicines starting this Monday.

We are going to do this every other Monday for two months.

The next step is a different chemotherapy medicine every week for 12 weeks.

Like the title of this post says,  “Breast Cancer Sucks!!” .

I again want to thank all of my friends and family for all the love, support , phone calls, texts, instant messages, food, flowers, letters, cards, and visits!!!

I could not do this alone!

Of course, I am never alone, I have Jesus in my heart, the Holy Spirit by my side, and the Good Lord leading the way!!!!!!

Knee Surgery


Well,  I went to doctor on Wednesday for a 2 week check up on my knee.

  He looked at it and assumed that the tumor had grown back, so he scheduled me for surgery on Friday (yesterday).

  After he got in my knee and looked around he couldn’t find a tumor, so the popping worked.  Then he found a burr, got rid of it and cut off some cartilage that was torn on my meniscus.

Here is what it looks like now.

It was numb until about 2 hours ago.

Now it hurts, I thought I had better get this post done before the pain killers kick in because they knock me out.

Big Ran and Shafer are taking good care of me.

On the brighter side, I am not going back to work until the 27th!  YAY!!

Not that it is going to take me that long to heal,  we are headed out on a cruise on the 16th.

I have been doing some online shopping for the cruise, since I won’t be getting around much until the cruise.

Here are a few things that I have ordered from Kohl’s.

Getting drowsy,  so I had better go.
