Now What?

I could go on and on about how much I hate what is going on in the world right now, but all I’ll say is this: I don’t care who is right and who is wrong, God created us all equal. He created us to be kind to one another. He created us to doContinue reading “Now What?”

Happy Dance

You guys, I am so stinking excited! Almost all of my labs are back in normal range. YES, even my white blood cell count! Is it the fact that my body is listening to my subconscious (you are almost done)? Is my body simply just getting stronger? Is it my immunity green juice? Is itContinue reading “Happy Dance”

Another Year Older

For those of you who know our daughter, Rowyn, you know she is the best pouter. She exaggerates all the characteristics of a pout. She stops what she is doing, stares at you and frowns. She puts her head down (unless there is a table near by, then she rests her head on her arm)Continue reading “Another Year Older”

Magic

My white blood cell count didn’t do as I had hoped, it actually did the exact opposite. Yup, that’s right. It went down by .3. Like seriously? Why? Well, it’s probably a combination of things: stress, adjusting to a new chemotherapy drug and a cumulative effect of the treatments. I’m not going to lie hereContinue reading “Magic”

Tough Love

Have you guys seen that meme that’s been on Facebook lately? The one where it says something about this past week feeling like a year? Well, welcome to my life: COVID-19 social distancing, chemotherapy treatments and potty training. At my last treatment day my white blood cells (part of my body’s immune system) dropped byContinue reading “Tough Love”

The Dirty Dozen

I’m pretty jazzed about the name I’ve come up with for my last chemotherapy regimen. 12 Rounds of Taxol = The Dirty Dozen. I had my first round yesterday, which means I’ve only got 11 more to go! I just hope the rounds that follow go a little smoother. I was about 5-10 minutes intoContinue reading “The Dirty Dozen”

Movement Is Movement

We are our own worst critic. For anyone who has been to RISE you will understand what I’m talking about and for those of you who haven’t… let me explain. We all have days. Days where we need to hear a friend say, “MOVEMENT IS MOVEMENT, fast or slow, you are doing it!” Rachel HollisContinue reading “Movement Is Movement”

Power of Positivity

pos-i-tiv-i-ty (noun) the practice of being or tendency to be positive or optimistic in attitude. the presence rather than the absence of a certain substance, condition, or feature. Wow! I usually only think of positivity as a personal attribute, but when I look at both definitions it is all encompassing for me… and that sucks!Continue reading “Power of Positivity”

Wiggin’ Out

Does anyone else have a week where they think to themselves, “gosh, can I please just catch a break?“ Round 2 of chemotherapy hit me differently or maybe it’s because I was more prepared for what was coming- minus the pounding headache. Instead of being miserable and enduring the punch of the Red Devil onContinue reading “Wiggin’ Out”

All the Feels

You guys, ROUND ONE is done and I’ve been enjoying my off week, but as I start planning (cause I’m a planner) for my next treatment on January 29th my stomach knots. I’m not looking forward to the nausea, fatigue, bone pain and the progression of hair loss, brittle nails and dry skin (just toContinue reading “All the Feels”
