Feeling better...

I am beginning to feel better but do need to remember not to over do it. Which seems like I keep doing.....then I get reminders of no lifting.

Need to call the dr Monday to schedule a follow up appt. and the results from pathology.

Home resting

Thank you for all your prayers!!!!

Surgery went well, still waiting results from pathology, about the depth and lymph nodes to know the stage and if chemo is needed.

I am so thankful for all the food that friends have prepared for us. Has really been a blessing.

Today they all climbed in bed with me for school.
Of course the boys voiced that vacation could run longer for them and it would be no problem. My daughter on the other hand started school yesterday all by herself.

Today my MIL had come up to help so I can sleep......I now know how to help
a friend if they ever have surgery.
Never considered needing it at home with my children. They are so helpful and can do so much.....that I figured we didn't need help after the surgery. Well they are children and they want to be children. Their motivation is to watch tv and play outside not to do laundry and clean up after themselves and others. I am also trying to let go and not expect everything done as I would do it.
Nap time for me......will check back in few days.

Tomorrow is the day

Pre op is done. Tomorrow is the day for surgery. Scheduled for 9:50 but asked to be there at 7:30.
I am holding into Gods promises and the knowledge he is the reason it was found early.

I am thankful...

  I am so thankful I have such an awesome friend that has held my hand with every appointment...has shed tears with me as the news was given. She has prayed with me and for me, has knelt at the alter for me.  I dont know what I would with out her by my side.

I have a date

 October 19th is the day that surgery is scheduled. The office said to figure a hospital stay of a week.

I have faith God is here with me......and that it will all be good. Of course I do have to admit I try not to think about what I am headed for to deeply......if I do then fear does begin to set in.

Finally....things are happening

     A week ago today I found out I had cancer...Since then I have been trying to have a cat scan down. New month came the cost share that was meant but took days to show. Then it was the another frustration today getting the approval. Insurance has everyone ones hands tied and they are trying their best to make it happen.
      I received one final call tonight and it looks like everything is in order for the approval to be in the right computer system midnight tonight. So as I sit typing I am drinking the first of my special drinks. Had a choice between Berry Smoothie and Vanilla, wasn't sure so the girl gave me berry. It isn't that bad but next time I am going vanilla.
      I am very blessed, my girlfriend Julie has been by my side, and promised not to leave it. Twice this week she has come over and helped me mentally and emotionally.

Well finishing my cocktail......thank you for your prayers
