Did you miss me?

Well, I'm sorry I was MIA for a while. I've been sick, tired, worn out, busy, going places, seeing people, enjoying Thanksgiving, being very sore from radiation and most likely the start of lymphedema, without internet and helping one very excited 5 year old boy work on his science fair project.

Phew. Did that wear you out? It wore me out that's for sure!

Anyway, on a good note ... I've been out a few times in the last few weeks. It's still pretty exhausting and I need what feels like a few days to recover from getting out. But, there have been so many moments I didn't want to leave the house in the past, so this feels like a major win!

Also, tomorrow is my last day of radiation. Oh yes. The last day. Can we all just cheer together? On the count of 3. 1 .... 2 ... 3 ... Yay!!!

Okay, now that that is out of the way, I'm saying good night now. Because some virus is going around and of course it got me. So I'll be resting and relaxing for a few more days.

    Yay! We all understand that you must be worn out. I'm glad you have had a chance to get out some. How is the lymphedema? My mom started having problems with that this summer. Hers came up 18 years later. I hope it isn't too bad. I hope that after your treatment is over tomorrow you are able to start getting some energy back! We won't stop praying! Jenny O

  2. Glad to hear your radiation is almost over. Stay hydrated and glad you had a good week.

  3. We got a stomach virus around my house. Imagine 3 people throwing up at the same time. 1 bathroom.

    Get well soon!!

  4. YAY for getting out! And YAY for last day of radiation. :) Hope the virus doesn't pummel you, and you start to feel better soon!

    Brandie - so glad you are getting out (even if it tires you out) and that radiation is over!!!! A real triumph. So glad you are ok...I was getting kinda worried about you. Still dying to know the design/picture on the needlepoint project you are doing!! :) Hang in there and know that we are all rooting for you. xo Chris, San Diego
