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:

Tonight was not good. While hovering over the toilet throwing up yet again I just burst into tears. I had a weak moment of exhaustion and was just over this whole thing. I think every cancer patient has these days and it's just part of the package. I was happy my mom wasn't here because in moments like this she would have stayed and never went home again;) She is a nurturer by nature and that is a wonderful quality I got from her.

In my moment of weakness and tears my husband and girls came to my rescue. It meant everything to me. Sophie jumped into my lap and hugged me for over 15 minutes. She didn't say a word just looked at me, kissed my forehead, and hugged me more. Kaylee brought in a drawing she had been working on. She is very artistic and it's always her way of showing love. My mother in law even ran to Walgreens late just to get my prescription even after working a long hard day.

So all in all, the tears have dried and I have many reasons to be thankful. :)
