Update On Two Of My Friends - Please Continue To Pray - July 25, 2010

Update on Sherilyn Karamitros from her daughter Ivry. The surgery went well. They removed both breasts and removed an entire lymphnode pad located in the left armpit region. The surgeon said he could tell by just looking at the lymphnode pad that at least 5 of the lymphnodes were cancerous. They will have the biopsy results next week. She will have to go through several rounds of chemo to make sure that the lymphnodes are all treated thoroughly. She will go through 4 different types of treatments. The treatments should be completed by next August.
So you can see that Sherilyn has a long road ahead of her. Please be in prayer for her and her family.
The other prayer request and update is for George Doehring. We work with his wife Kathy. She asked that we pray for him tomorrow, July 26th, he is having surgery at MD Anderson to have 5 tumors removed from his left kidney. That is his only kidney.
My great family and friends please be in prayer for both of these families.

Before & After - July 3, 2010

Sorry it has been so long since I posted anything. I have had good intentions but have been really busy. School got out the first week of June and the very next week we started summer school. For those of you who don't know, my husband and I work for the school district. He drives a Special Needs bus and I am his monitor.

One of the reasons I started this blog was to help folks with cancer or folks who know someone with cancer. I just want to be a help. I know the first time I went through cancer I had no idea what to expect. If I read or looked up things on the internet sometimes it would just upset me more. Sometimes we just need to take baby steps. Everyone is not the same. Some can take more then others. So the second time around some things were better and some were not.

This post I wanted to share some pictures of before and after. You will know what I mean when you look them. I know my first round I knew I was going to loose my hair. But I didn't stop to think about eyebrows, eyelashes, underarms, legs, etc. The legs and underarms was great, no shaving. But the eyebrows and eyelashes was alittle different. I had to figure out what to do, I just happened to pick up a booklet while at MD Anderson and read what to do. The first picture is half of my face with makeup and the other half without. The next one is with no makeup or hair and then with makeup and hair. Big difference. What I had to do was draw eyebrows on and then I use waterproof eyeliner so it would bring my eyes out.
Well, I hope this might help someone out there reading this.
