Feeling So Good

It is, and I don't know why really, amazing to me how I get stronger and stronger everyday. That is a good thing, and my body is on hardly any medication anymore, and no more poison so it makes sense, and I've been poked and prodded so much that at least I know I'm pretty healthy and so I can take that and run with it.
I've finished my six bracelets and got them boxed and ready to deliver. And I'm reading a book by Lance Armstrong called "It's Not About the Bike, My Journey Back to Life", which is pretty amazing. I didn't think I'd care for it because I figured he talked a lot about cycling and he does, but it is interesting.
It is still cold here in Georgia, and suppose to be really really cold tonight.
And the Radiologist called me today and he is leaning toward me NOT having radiation....but as I've learned with this ordeal, don't believe anything the first time you hear it. My case has to be presented to the Cancer Board of the hospital and though he thought they'd agree with him, I am ok either way. That board of Dr.'s are a lot smarter than me on the subject and so I'll find out on Dec. 4th when I have an appointment with him.
Other than all that, I've had a pretty uneventful day. This is the last few days of me staying at home and I can't tell you how glad I am to be going back to work, even if I am bald! BIG DEAL! I'm alive!!

I love it! You had an uneventful day! Well, dear friend, I wish you many, many more uneventful days! Radiation? Or not? Whatever! You can handle whatever comes. I am so proud of you!

Love and hugs.......Marge

Robbin...I read that book awhile back, your right, it is a great book and very inspiring

If you haven't already, you should try reading Gilda Radner's "It's always Something". It is an account of her battle with discovering her cancer, and undergoing chemotherapy...all with the back drop of Saturday Night Live!

Speaking of hair, your post made me think about the day I lost my hair for the second time! LOL...a post for another day! happy for you!

I'm so very, very happy for you. It's been a long battle and you've been brave and upbeat all the way. I'm sorry I haven't been around much but I haven't forgotten you and you are in my daily prayers. Faith will always lead us through. Courage gives Faith the weapons to fight. You have a wealth of both.

I'm happy for you. Really down deep happy. So many people that I know are going through your journey. I'm glad you have art to do while you recup! What a journey!

I've seen that book and thought about reading it Memaw, thanks, I think I'll order it. You lost your hair twice?

Robbin with 2 B's! said...

(((Mary))) so glad to see you again, I know you've been busy. Thanks for those prayers for sure, keep them coming.

Welcome May Timmme, thank you for your good wishes, and yes, it has been quite a journey, but like you said, many people are going through it. I pray for a cure soon, one a lot better than harsh chemo.
