108 Days

Today marks 108 days since I sat in the doctor's office and heard the have cancer.  In some ways it feels like just yesterday, but in many it feels like forever ago. 

The days of time stealers are over.  I added up all the time for driving and appointments over a week during treatment and we've been spending 25 hours per week driving and getting treatment.  That is a lot of time that my husband and family has given to me!  Thank you so much for your sacrifice. 

Today Billy and I are driving to the OU Cancer Institute so that I can have an MRI and see the Rad-Onc and Gyn_Onc that will oversee my Interstitial Brachy Radiation.  I am not feeling good today as I worked for 8 hours yesterday at the office and overdid it some while my boss was in town and projects were due.  Today my head is throbbing, my body is tired, I'm weak and shaky.  The side effects from radiation has caused irritation to my bladder and colon.  Its also caused blistering on the skin.  The one thing I am celebrating is that I have not had to take an anti-nausea pill since yesterday morning.  It has been 10 days since my last chemo and I'm hoping the side effects of that are wearing off. 

Please pray for safe travel and that my doctor visits go as smoothly as possible today.  I better run...Billy has started the car.


  1. I love you!
    Everyone is so proud of you!
    You are a rockstar...seriously.
    Praying for you today and in the days to come!

  2. I just kept thinking that oyr sweet Jesus knows how weary you are and that brought a picture to mind of Jesus carrying you. footprints is my favorite poem. It's awesome to know that we are never alone and when we need Him to carry us...He WILL! Praying for your safe travels.
