January 14, 2011

This has been a hard couple of weeks. I am so glad that we started the Daughters of the King blog (you can click unto this blog at the bottom of my blog) to help us memorize scripture. After reading a new blog about Ovarian Cancer, I must admit it was very depressing. For a couple of days, it was really rough, so I began to search for a scripture to help me.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Heb. 4:16
Also, just this week I have heard about two more cancer victums. One is a 7 yr. old granddaughter (Kiera) of Lisa Loven (bus driver at work) who has neuroblastoma (a fast growing cancer). Another is a lady bus driver who already went through surgery for breast cancer over the holidays and came back to work this week. Can not mention her name because she doesn't want alot of people to know. Wow, that old ugly CANCER raises its head everywhere. I HATE IT!!!!! Still another prayer requests is for Reagan Faith Van Fleet who is 6 weeks old with very serious heart problems. Her great aunt is an aide at one of our schools.

January 8, 2011

Just thought I would post another webpage for Ovarian Cancer patients, that I received from Joanne Nelson. I have gone to it and thought I would share it with you.

Again, as I read it, it has made me kind of depressed. All the facts you read are not good, so we just need to leave it in the Lord's hands. I thank the Lord for His healing and I pray it NEVER comes back. Please, please, please read about the symptoms and get checked, the earlier the better.

One Year Ago Today - January 4, 2011

Wow, as we were riding down the road today at work on the bus, it dawned on me. I told Scott, one year ago today I wasn't feeling too good. I had surgery for ovarian cancer. It is hard to believe that it has been a year already. God sure has been good to me. Although it has been a very hard year health wise, it has also been hard personally. But through it all God has been right there with us.

I would like to thank Dr. Pamela Soliman, her fellows, nurses and everyone that had a part in taking care of me. I am so thankful to have been able to go to MD Anderson for all my care. As many of you know that has been following my blog, I have posted many pictures of those workers.

This is one of the most recent pictures of me taken this past Sunday. My surgery was January 4 and my last chemo treatment was May 27. This is how much my hair has grown back and has come back very curly.
So again, I would like to mention to every woman out there to get your CA125 checked. The earlier they find ovarian cancer, the better it is too treat. Some only need surgery with no chemo, then there are others of us who have to go through chemo. It is just a blood test. I pray that I never have to go through cancer again.
