Breast Cancer Journey

Let LIFE'S NEW NORMAL HAPPEN...

Months after  my cancer journey begun, my life’s new normal is every 3 to 4 months appointment with my oncologist

All is well right now, blood work levels, tumor markers...in theory, but still kind of terrifying. If anything, my heart can’t help skip a beat even more every appointment with just the thought of having a recurrence.

We all live in borrowed time...I just keep on praying and hoping that my due date isn’t shortened by being touched by the "c" word.

But, I take comfort in knowing that GOD, St. Peregrine and the heavens are always with me through every life’s battles I fought and won!

"Thank You GOD for victory over every mountain"!...

so...just let Life happen as the journey continues...

PUMPING IRON at a cancer center facility

Today marks my surgery’s 5th month and now having my 1st session of iron infusion to hopefully pump my levels up.

I’ve had iron infusions years back but not at a cancer center facility.  It really put things in perspective to me that in light of the battle I’m facing, I’m thankful that I’m just pumping iron and not chemo drugs.

  Update :   February 28, 2018  - I felt fine after the infusion but the side effects of severe headache, mild nausea, chest, back, lower body aches and pains started the next day that still lingers on today, 2 days after.  My heart whispers a prayer for the next session to turn out well again with no complications and for me not to feel as run down afterwards.
