When I was first diagnosed I heard that if you set goals of events you want to see, it would help you want to fight to get there. This would give you a positive outlook on your fight. So I decided I would set goals both long term and short term. Some of my long term goals are weddings, graduations, and grandchildren. I would love to be there for these moments. I also set short term goals. Some of these include birthdays, holidays, and sporting events. One of the silly goals I set was at the beginning of the year. My mom got Jett a daily devotional book and my thought was if I could get through the whole book without my cancer coming back that would be really good. Each night as we read a page I know I am one day closer to that goal. Now that we are into November I check to see just how far I have come and how much I still have to go. My thought is that the longer I go without the cancer coming back the better. When I was first diagnosed my doctor said that we have many treatment options up our sleeves. That is where I want those to stay for a few years. Also with as much research as they are doing, the longer I go without having to touch one of those treatment options, the more chances there are, that we might be able to add newly discovered treatments.
Speaking of milestones, on November 2nd my little baby turned 2. She is growing up too quickly. We didn’t really celebrate with a party (we will celebrate with one big party in April when the other two have their birthday). I did bake a cake for her. I thought I would share some pictures of Kaylee.
