Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Overall today I felt much better. Must be my white blood cells zooming back up again. Went out for lunch with family for the first time since the “c” word came into my life…it was nice. For a moment I tried to forget that under my strategically placed green hat… was a bald headed chemo patient. It was refreshing:)

Onto deeper more personal news. Tonight John and I had the chance to sit down and talk. It was nice. The result of the conversation was that we were both scared. That we were both uncertain… frustrated… overwhelmed…. so on and so forth. Some regarding the same things…some not.

What it boils down to is marriage is not easy. Ours wasn’t perfect before cancer, and won’t be perfect after. But 11 years is a lot of time to get to know someone… and I think we know each other pretty well. Regardless of kids, or finances or even cancer… we were destined to be soul mates….and that’s exactly what we are.
