I have been fighting setting up this site for a while as I felt it was giving in or accepting that this is real. Well it is! I am beyond blessed to have so many friends and family members who want to check in on me and know what is going on. So, I will try to do updates on here instead of texting all of you separately. I probably won't reply, but I will read each and every comment left on here. I also feel very blessed that I get to climb this cancer mountain instead of my husband or children! After all, I LOVE mountains! God blessed me with the absolute best husband and boys, who are helping me in unbelievable ways! I have received so much of his favor with angel friends along the way as well! A radiation, medical, and surgical oncologist (3 doctors) have agreed on my plan of treatment. I will begin this Tuesday with daily radiation treatments 5 days a week and a chemotherapy treatment one time a week for approximately 6 weeks. After that, I will have 4 separate radiation implants done in Wichita. Cancer is an ugly diagnosis, but it is NOT the end of my story! I have prayed for years for my boys, "let no weapon formed against them prosper". Now I claim that for myself! This weapon will not prosper! Those who know me know that I am tough, am not scared to work hard, and am very, very stubborn! I've got this! I plan to continue working and not let it beat me! I am in God's hands first and then my doctor's. Thank you for praying and giving thanks for my complete healing. Thank you for all that you have said, sent, done, texted, prayed! Please keep praying and standing with me and also pray for my doctor and care giver team! All of you are a blessing to me!
Side note...I was very sad to have to call and have my name removed from the Be The Match Donor site....if you are not a donor, please sign up. It saves lives; my family knows this!
Lastly if you have time, listen to four of my favorite songs. They help me understand this and will you too! Blessings by Laura Story, Thy Will by Hillary Scott, Be Held by Casting Crowns, and Praise You In This Storm by Casting Crowns.
By His stripes I am healed. This is a done deal! His Will is for me to be well! I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! Phil 4:13
