Here I am with my silly hair. I never had curly hair before. And White!
Some people tell me they love the color. I think it's great if I were George Washington. Told my husband I needed to color my hair so that I didn't look like his mother. He said, "At least you have hair." I replied. "That's so I don't look like your father." : ) I am feeling good. My strength has returned and I am doing great. I'm on book 6. Yes, I've published three already this year. Have another one to edit and publish and the first chapter of book 6 is done. Live your life big and bold, knowing eternal life is yours for the asking. Jesus holds the key. Ask him and he'll come into your life and you'll never be the same.
Hi friends. A quick update to let you know what is going on. AND lessons learned. I am feeling good. Have an appointment with my oncologist this Friday. With an allergist and Asthma Dr Monday. I need to get my asthma under control. Praising the Lord I get this all done before Obamacare hits the land. LOL Lessons I have learned: I am loved. Loved by friends and and people I don't even know. By family especially my sweet husband and son and even wonder dog Jacs. and of course by God. The Lord gave me such an awesome time of fun. One of my good friends broke a non-weight bearing bone in her leg. While she couldn't work, we were able to meet and enjoyed eating out and long talks about the Lord. Such an amazing time of fun. Then she went back to work and my friend, Liz Babbs, from England came over to see me and minister to me. We stayed at a hotel in Fort Worth and did a few touristy things but mainly enjoyed one another's company and our time with the Lord.
After prayer time, she told me the Lord said He loved me. And said "Well done faithful servant." How awesome. And in the scheme of worldly works, I haven't done anything. But the Lord knows more than that. Weeks before, I had felt that nudge from the Holy Spirit that He wanted to meet with me. I ran to my office. The Lord met me there and told me He loved me. told me that His yoke was easy and His burden light. That was it. I received it. And the Lord has blessed me in so many ways. From friends sending cards, notes on fb, meals that they've brought. AND PRAYERS. Can't say how much I appreciate all the prayers. Trust me, they make a difference. And I am sure in ways I don't even know. I am loved. I Fear Not. And I am the healed of the Lord. Oh, and I had surgery Sept 24th. More on that after Friday. : ) God loves you too He is not a respecter of persons. His lesson for me applies to any who call on His Name.
Thought I would let you in on what is going on.
Jacs is busy reading my book Liberty Belle. : )
While I am trying to finish my second book - Golden Dreams.
The chemo I just finished is Taxol and makes the tips of my fingers numb. I take Neurotin to combat the neuropathy. Not bad and the Lord has assured me that it will go away.
I had a Cat Scan last Friday.
The results - no cancer showed up, but there were a few things on my lungs. DR said don't worry that it could just be the way my lungs are and in three months they'll take another scan. I am not worried.
I have a mastectomy scheduled for Sept 24. Trying to decide if I want them to take both breasts or just the one. Leaning toward just the one right now.
After surgery and a few weeks of healing I will start radiation. Told it is not a big deal but might make me tired. Oh well, me and the recliner have grown used to each other. : )
I feel good, just a little tired.
My appetite has come back in the form of a Labrador retriever. I will eat anything. This is after months of ugh, I have to eat something. So whatever my brain and stomach decided they wanted, I would eat.
Now, whatever I think of to eat, my stomach is a bouncing ball of joy shouting "yeah, yeah let's eat" Yikes have decided I better discipline that dog or I will blimp out and gain all that weight I lost.
Plus after a couple of weeks to get the Taxol out of my system, I am going to start eating healthy again.
In two weeks, I am ditching the hats and going fuzzy.
Below is a sneak peak of me all natural in my fuzz do. I am wearing the T Shirt the sweet chemo nurses gave me for finishing the chemo.
Love you all
And I really do appreciate all the prayers and encouragement.
The Logo on the T shirt reads
I would add Celebrate Life in Christ!
Forward! Charge! and Overcoming in the Name of the Lord!
I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post. Where has the time gone? And what have I been doing? Well, look at my dog Jacs in the picture to the right and I hate to say it but I have resembled that look (minus the hair of course : )
Still have fuzz for hair. Hubby calls me fuzzy. I don't mind but I am missing having hair. I usually wear a hat when I go out. Might go rogue and go out to eat without one. Feel like I need to be bold.
The other day I sent my hubby a pic of me and the pup and almost gagged at the sight of me. Yuch I look sick. Current chemo makes me pale. But then I thought about it. I have had six courses of poison pumped into me. My red blood cells take a beating each time and that tends to wear a person out. And cancer has attacked me. I finally realized I am sick. Never thought of myself that way before. Probably because I felt fine despite the fact that cancer had attacked me. A little funny in the odd way that the cure has made me feel sick. But that is often the case with our modern medicine isn't it. Much of the no pain no gain mentality. Not complaining. I haven't had an upset stomach once and that is big for me. Just feel tired and weaker than normal. So now that I have decided I am sick - healing takes on a new meaning. Now I can be healed of something. And I'll know it! SO I am believing for healing from on high. That I will be able to walk on the treadmill and not grow faint. That my hair will grow. That my strength will be renewed And that I will finish my book Golden Dreams Have a blessed day Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."
