This is a pic I got today of Sadie fixing a plate for Raynie. What sweet sisters; they impress me all the time and make me so proud and grateful! Today we had a wonderful dinner and played lots of cards. I even got a nap after dinner, so the day worked well for me.
We stay up too late every night. It's worth it for all the fun we have, though! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! Sorry I'm so late with this posting!
In 11/06 I was diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer. One of our daughters started this blog for me; it has been a way to keep everyone informed and give them a way to respond. In 9/11 the love of my life had a heart attack followed by a stroke and passed from this life. Holy cow, I still lived! I stumbled for 9 months and then met a wonderful man who had lost his wife to complications of breast cancer. In 8/12 we married. I learned that God gave us big enough hearts to love completely, again! On 2/26/13 I learned that the breast cancer is back in the bones, the lymph system, and the liver; I now have stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, meaning it cannot be cured but it can be treated. I began treatments on 3/5/13; if they work, I can live year after year, so I'm praying that these treatments will work. I learned on 4/29/13 that they ARE working; I will continue as long as it works. This blog is about my challenges along the way. I pray that my story will be encouraging to those who read it. Attitude is everything and I believe that God provides. I give thanks for that and for your love, support, and prayers.
