Come along on my faith-based, encouraging, and humorous journey as the Lord Heals me from the invasion of breast cancer.

Did you get the license to that truck?

Wow! Where have I been?

It wasn't chemo that got me. It was the flu bug Semi carrying a trailer full of congestion, coughing, and fatigue.

After more than 2 weeks, I am finally feeling good. Wow what a nasty bug.  So weak I couldn't even write.  THAT IS BAD!

But I am back!!!

Feeling good today and gathering strength.

Good news - I have lost more weight where I am no longer overweight.  Not quite to the 135 they say I am supposed to weigh but under 150 and I haven't seen that in 20 years.

Now I need to exercise. Yikes I am all flab.  Need some muscles.

Chemo #3 should happen Monday.   Had to skip one because of the bug.

One thing that I am really not happy with, is this bug derailed me spiritually too. I did nothing and God wasn't even on the horizon.  I thank the Lord that He didn't forget me. But I learned a lesson, no matter what keep God first.

Also - sad news. While I was languishing with the flu bug, my sweet Father in law went to be with the Lord. He is definitely happier now. I did get to say good bye to him. Bittersweet times. I do miss him, but I am happy to have my house back.

At times it was like  grand central station with all his caregivers.

So, with my goal to heal and get healthier, I am now taking over my house again.

First thing - change the room my FIL stayed in.  It is now my play room - or will be.
Tearing up the carpet - paint the walls a pretty aqua color - tile the floor.  Can't wait to get started.

Remember God is always good!

Lamentations 3:22-25

22 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.


  1. I'm so glad you are back! I've missed you. I'm so sorry to hear about your father-in-law's passing.

    I'm praying for your healing and also for peace and comfort for your sweet hubby and you.

    Love to you, sweet friend!
