So I thought I would write a quick post while I have a few seconds. Seems like I am running around all the time. I’m sure everyone feels the same with Christmas and all. Hope everyone is ready for Christmas. It seems each year I promise myself to start shopping earlier but then before I know it I only have a week left before Christmas. This year I did a lot of shopping online. It was much easier!
Last Monday was my Zometa treatment. It went really well. I only felt bad that night and some the following morning. It is mostly bone pain and muscle soreness. It seems each time I get a treatment it gets better. I did talk to my oncologist and asked if he thought my cancer would come back. I was hopping that because I had such a great response to the chemo and was cancer free I would have a better shot of it not coming back. He said there is a 100% chance it will come back it would just be a question of when. I guess with stage 4 it always comes back. That news is very hard but I know I have to live my life to the fullest and spend every moment I can with my beautiful children.
On Thursday I had an appointment with the radiologist. The plan is to do 28 treatments. That is a treatment every day, Monday through Friday until I have completed 28 treatments. Luckily the treatments aren’t too long and will only make me tired. Doing this though will decrease the chance of it coming back. Always with stage 4 there is no good data because every person is different but I went in being aggressive so I will continue being aggressive.
This weekend has been really hard. Both girls have ear infections. They are miserable when they are sick. Abby slept all day Saturday and Sunday. She was burning up both days! Today she is still a little sick but seems to be perking up. I am sure Jett or myself will get it by Christmas. It seems Christmas is a good time to get sick. UGH!
Well my 2 seconds are up because I have a little one screaming for my attention. I hope to post pictures of the family decorating the tree on Wednesday.
Thanks for all the kind comments. It really helps knowing that I have so many people praying for me.

  5. I am praying for you and your family everyday. and don’t worry, sure it may come back but that could be 20 years or more down the road. not one single person knows, only God. So you keep your head up and put God first and He will never let you down. Your girls picture decorating the tree on your last post was adorable. I bet that little one is walking all over the place now. I hope that you and your family have a Blessed and Wonderful Christmas. And a special gift Christmas is on the Sabbath this year. I greet but will have to sneek in early to enjoy the Christmas songs. Don’t tell. Prayers always and to a Better New Year! Lisa

  7. Michelle – there is only one that can tell you if the Cancer will come back or not and it isn’t a doctor. God and only God knows all about us. We’ll keep you in our prayers and miracles can happen with the power of prayer. We wish you and your family a Blessed Christmas.

    Love, Barb, Gary & family
