As many of you know, I have stage IV Breast Cancer. This means that my initial cancer, after chemo, radiation and surgery ended up spreading into my bones. Since receiving the news I have been going through hormone - inhibitor therapy (shots, shots, and more shots). Well, as bad as I hated shots as a kid I have to say that I now LOVE them! As of my last scan one spot is completely gone and the other, larger one on my spine - in the doctor's most WONDERFUL words - is HEALING! No new spots were found. I know that many of you have prayed for me and I wanted to share my great news with you. Jesus Christ is still in the business of meeting our needs! I don't know why He chose to look my way, but I know how merciful, compassionate and loving He is because He died and rose again for me. This was just one more proof of HIS greatness. I hope that you know Him....
The other good news - at least I see it this way - is that I am moving to 3rd grade next year! I have taught K's for 15 years and desperately need a change. For those of you who have "fought the good fight" for 20 years+ my hat is off to you! My poor, old body just can't keep up with the energy needed anymore. You all know exactly what kind of energy I am talking about! Some days it is like trying to herd cats - wonderful, but still very taxing on the old bod. :-) I hope to keep up the blog as long as it is helpful. I truly have enjoyed the ride!
