As you can see, I changed the name of my blog :). I believe that "Let me just stew about it" is more appropriate right now (with my obsession of stew).
I just left the dr which means I just completed round 6!!!!! I'm halfway through this long journey. When I started this nightmare in August, I didn't know how I'd ever get through 1 round let alone 12. I asked everyone around me how survivors find the strength and courage to get up everyday and fight. I now know the answer... Lots of prayers, love, support, humor, and of course STEW!!! I have the best chemo stories and pictures and someday God will bless me with an assignment to use them. I can't wait for that day! This week I read a sign that said "The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.". After 35 years on this earth and about a million heartaches later, it has become my mission to figure out WHY. Im sure everyone around me wants to know why, but the medical doctors can not answer that question. This leads me to believe that there is a greater purpose for my life and I am ready to find out what that is.
I started chemo early this morning because I have an IMPORTANT date tonight... Hannah's band and choir recital. I have not missed anything of the girls's yet. I would love to make it through this without missing anything at all. Those girls are my world and reason for fighting. I'll have Picts to post hopefully by tomorrow.
This round is going to be extremely hard, I can tell already :(. Whenever I hear it pumping into me, I want to yank it out and run. The doctor said he's proud of how far I've come and I'm determined not to let anyone down. With Christmas break 2 days away, I should be able to blog way more (lucky all of you...jk).
We are almost home and it's time to rest before the program tonight. Enjoy every minute you have with your loved ones this season because things really can change in the blink of an eye.
