In early November of 2016 I received news that shocked me beyond words. I cannot even explain what I felt or didn't
feel when my surgeon called me and said, "they found cancer." I was at a Chiles' soccer game with my son,
Aidan, and fellow soccer moms cheering on our teen boys when I got the
call. My son, Tag was out on the pitch
making me so proud and even scored while I was on the phone. Thanks
Cancer for making me miss that goal. You
suck by the way!
From that day forward the appointments began. From diagnostic
mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsy, MRI, pre-ops, surgeries, consultations, post-surgical
visits, phone calls, meeting new doctors and nurses. I think I have mentioned all involved but if
I have forgotten a procedure/appointment…please forgive. Needless to say, it has been cumbersome and
expensive. But anything to kill this
The roller coaster of emotions varied from day to day and visit to visit. Luckily, I have the BEST support system you
could ask for. From God (without my
faith and love for the Lord, I’d have lost this fight), BFF s, friends, co-worker
(really family), my blood family, and my AMAZING and FOREVER loving husband and
boys. This crew, now known as “Team
Cookie” has carried me through this fight.
So here we are, January
16, 2017! I now have a treatment plan,
which will include chemotherapy, radiation, and Tamoxifen (all in that
order). So, Cancer…FYI you are going down!
I’m fighting like a girl and will conquer your sorry @%#!
I may not understand
how everything will work out,
but I trust you. I don’t see a way,
but I know you will make a way,
I have faith at this very moment
You are touching hearts,
opening doors, and
lining up the right breaks and
right opportunities. Things may
look dark and bleak now, but
I have faith that my dawn is coming.
In Jesus name, amen!
