Hello friends and family. I wanted to give you an update with how I am doing. I am feeling stronger and stronger both mentally and physically. Over the weekend I got out for the first time but by 4:00 p.m. I felt like I had been run over by a truck. Today, I rested and have a lot more energy tonight. I drove today for the first time in 11 days!! Today, I was able to take the kids to school and then to their after school activities. The normalcy feels great! Today was the first day I did not take pain medication.

My next doctor appt is this coming Friday where I will meet with the Radiation Oncologist to discuss radiation treatments. She came highly recommended to me by two gals I know that recently finished their treatments with her.

Today, while I was talking about my surgery and upcoming treatments with the kids, Jacob told me how scary this all must be for me and he told me how brave I am. I told him if he was faced with something like this that I know he too would be so extremely brave. He stopped in the middle of us talking and put his hands together and silently prayed. He told me his prayer was that “you would score low on that test (recurrence risk test) and that you would not need chemotherapy.” Ansley says if I need chemo I should get a long haired blonde wig if I lose my hair. I love these kids!!!!! 🙂
