The countdown to surgery

Hello everyone. Yes I have been hard at work, making plans and trying to remain control of my life. I have been infection free for they past 5 days as far as I can tell, no antibiotics since Monday. I have seen a full case load this week, praise God. I was very tired from all the hard work and getting ahead of the shopping. Mailed off all my Christmas cards last night. I have CEU hours to finish before the surgery and more shopping ahead for this week. The Christmas party is next Saturday along with Texas A&M graduation. Jason and my 12 year anniversary is next Sunday the 14th. We plan to have a nice celebration.

I have plans of trying to exercise more this week. I don’t think I’ll reach my goal of 2K for 2014. I need less than 150 miles, but don’t think I can do this in 10 days, I will try to chip away at that number. Life is good. God is even better.

Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving

I have been silent for a while. Life has been okay and I have been working through the discomfort I have been feeling. I don’t know if the yuckiness is from left over infection or side effects of the antibiotics. I will have to wait to see.

I am thankful today for being able to share Thanksgiving with my family. I am thankful for my improving health. I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband and caring daughter. My dogs are awesome. I have a great job doing what I love. I am thankful that I have God to share my burdens and I am never alone. Life is good.

I have a goal to complete (whether I feel good or not) of running/biking/walking through 2000 miles this year. I thought I would blow this goal away prior to biopsies and surgeries. I have less than 150 miles to go and two weeks to complete them before my DCIS surgery. I am praying that I can do this with God’s help. My goal for next year is 3000 miles and to run Beach to Bay, ride Conquer the Coast and as many 5K and 10K races that I can. I will be in beast mode and beat this whole health issues I have had to deal with. God is greater and I put my faith in Him.

Tired

Feeling kind of down and worried. This abscess has not fully healed and it honestly scares me. I still have bruising on the six week old surgery for DCIS. I am feeling tense and nervous. I have not been sleeping well. I’m tired but my mind continues to race about this situation.

I pray that God will heal me and give me back my health and take away all fear and doubt. I want to be well again. Please send prayers my way and for my friends son who has been diagnosed with the flu. I need some spiritual strength. God bless and thank you.

Not is chipper today, but still better

Woke up tired today. Guess as usual, I over did it yesterday, but it was so worth it. I got many things done, including some work. Today I have a cherry pie in the oven and plan to make a meatloaf with my daughter later. We will start to decorate the tree because I want to start enjoying the season before the looming surgery occurs in a month.

My crazy dog is going to miss me tomorrow because I’m going back to work. This time I’m going to take it easy and work half days of patients and half days of paper work. God is so good. I love the way he was provided for every aspect of my life. Thank you Lord for another day in your grace. I have total faith that breast cancer ain’t got nothing on God. God is greater. God bless, y’all.
