Hello everyone!!! It has been a while since I have posted. It is not because I have not wanted to. I have so many things I want to post and write about but lately getting it on paper has been hard.
Coming completely to the other side of my cancer journey was harder than I thought it would be. You may be wondering, what in the world is she talking about. I am going to talk about that in the next few post.
I started this blog to keep family and friends posted about what all was going on through my journey. I also want this blog to be a resource to help others as they may walk through their cancer journey or for those who have friends walking through a cancer journey.
I am going to start with this week and then will work on catching you all up on what has been going on!
Today I saw my PA at the oncologist office and had a chest x-ray. It all started with a cough probably 3 weeks ago. I didn’t think much at first, I just took some over the counter meds to help with that. We live in an area where allergies can be pretty bad at times. Then, the cough became worse and then I had trouble getting a really good deep breath. Somewhere between the coughing getting worse and not being able to get a good deep breath my mind started wandering….if you have had cancer or close to someone that has, you probably know this is kind of normal (or so I think it is). My fear was that there was now something wrong with my lungs.
My medical oncologist told me one time she was not worried about me being that patient that waited to see her again to address any issues. She knew that if I thought something was wrong, I would call them. If you know me well, you can tell she has gotten to know me well over the past year. I actually called several days ago and talked to one of the nurses and then called back again today. They got me in within a little over an hour from when i called. I have some of the greatest doctors I believe. I have said before and still believe that God had my team of doctors lined up for me. Even almost 13 years ago starting with Dr. A who delivered Kate and she was the one that had to make that call to me on April 5th of last year delivering the news that I had breast cancer.
I spoke with the nurse this afternoon and she told me my x-ray came back and all was good! Praise the LORD!!! Such a relief to know everything was ok.
In the past I would have had a picture of all of todays appointments but I do not today. I took E with me today. She got to see the office I went to all those times for chemo treatments. She did not get to go in the infusion room but at least got to see the building I went to. Yesterday she was playing the Wii and told me that she made a new Mi for me. She said it has gray hair now and is skinner and taller:).
This morning I had read Isaiah 42. Verse 16 (which I have probably posted before) says “And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known. I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do and I do not forsake them.
I am looking at that scripture now thinking how God has lead me through this cancer journey, he has healed me and He is still walking this side of the cancer journey with me.
I hope you all have a great evening!
