Last herceptin

Friday was last dose. I'm sad but glad. I will miss the nurses and other wonderful ladies. I want miss the dose and the meds. Glad that part is done finally it's been a long journey.
I did first tatoo and may not continue. I got very dizzy later on that night in shower. i felt light headed and sick. It passed after 5-10 mins. Jeff got me a coke and worried about me. I thought it might be antibotic but didn't feel that way again so can't be that. Hard to decide.

My out spoken, grumpy, hateful,and well the not nice word attitude is a good thing but bad. I am learning to keep it under control but It will take sometime. I ain't gonna take meds cause I love my new attitude. Some people will just have to get over it cause this is the new me.

God Bless everyone!!!!!!

Susan G Komen Walk

It was great. We got there about 7:30 am. I got to sign t-shirt and got a pink hat with a pink ribbon to put on it. I got to set with other survivors. Jeff & kids took pictures of me with the group. We walked around to many tents. Got a few free gifts like scarf, pens, and more. We bought bracelets and Carl got a hat.
We did the Family walk which started at 9 am. Ronald Mcdonal started the race. We walked a mile. I loved it. Over 13,000 people were at the walk/run this year. It was tear breaking to see just how many are touched by this desease. At the end the survivors go to one side were we are greeted by Mike Witcher from channel 10 news and mens basketball team who gave out pink carnations.
It was a great adventure. Im glad my family was there with me. It was special to me and meant more to me than anyone could ever know. I thank God for my husband and kids.
I do want to thank all those who continue to pray from me and my family. Your prayers are felt daily. Thanks for all your support.

Get Ready......Race Oct 22nd

I am getting ready for walk. I am trying to walk in our back yard everyday for 20-40 mins.
I hope to see you at the race. Thanks!


Had herceptin Friday. Got to see Doctor too. He said everything looks great. I only have three more treatments left.  I am glad. I had diarrhea friday night. I felt rough. I felt great today. Just part of it. I am starting megace for hot flashes again. I hope it helps. I started new pill for five years back in Aug. The hot flashes aren't as bad as before. I have gained 15 pounds since I started this new journey. My knees hurt more often now too. May be the weight. I am sleeping better at night without pills. Yeah!! I am not pleased with boobs yet. Dr gotta do more work on it. Tattooing starts in a month or so. He may have to graph more skin to add for nipple.I just want it to be done.

final stage of reconstruction

I had surgery on Aug 10th. I had ovaries removed. Then plastic surgeon took fat from belly to add to left breast. He made a nipple. He cut on right breast to give it better shape and moved nipple. I really struggled with this but figured what the heck. Let him do what he does best. I look at it now its ugly. I have a nipple that looks partially black and no feelin. The other one is bruised and yellow but I feel it. This is hard to look at but the end result will be great. I just Thank God for letting this journey be an easy one for me. I have learned alot about myself and others.
God has taught me to be myself more don't hold myself back. I need to do what I like doing and not let others stop me. I want to help people and love Gods people better. I just want to serve him and make this a better place to live for all of us.
I have great support from family and friends. Some of them have went beyond what I thought of them. Thanks! I have made new friends and gain a closer relationship with one friend.
It has been great. I look forward to my future.
