I forgot to report that I talked to sweet Dorothy today and she is feeling much better. She still sounds weak, but she sounded so much stronger than yesterday. Thanks for your love and prayers. She is so dear to us! This pic was taken on my birthday; we were celebrating mine and hers; mine is the 4th of August and hers is the 11th so we usually celebrate all month. :)
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.
