2012 off to a good start

I had appointments with my radiation oncologist and my medical oncologist yesterday.
My radiation oncologist ( Dr. MacKay) said I looked great was healing great and she was ready to " graduate " me. I no longer need to see her. She gave me a hug and me being me got weepy. She and the entire staff at the Marshfield Radiation Oncology dept. were and are amazing. Thank you all..

I also met my new medical oncologist, since my former one ( Dr. Tipping) decided to retire. Her name is Dr. Gale and she too is amazing, I wish I would have met these people in 2004 when I had my first BC diagnoses. But I know them now and am so comfortable. I only need to get yearly mammograms and see Dr. Gale 2x a year that to me is AWESOME! I don't think anyone is still reading this but I am going to continue posting, just not as often.
Happy 2012 and God Bless

year end

This month started out rough, we said good bye to my grandma 20 days short of her 99 birthday she was a amazing lady and she had a great life, but we still miss her..

The day of my Grandmas wake I got news from my BB we went through radiation together 8 years ago, she called to tell me her cancer returned in the same breast and had a mastectomy last week. Please remember her in your prayers

On a brighter note : yesterday I had my  6 month check-up had a mammogram and saw the surgeon and 6 months post op I got a clean bill of health. Once again prayers were answered!  AMAZING

I want to wish all of you and your families a safe and blessed Christmas and a HEALTHY 2012
God Bless

I had a bit of a scare last week, toward the end of the week I was doing a job that I don't do often ( it involved a lot of cleaning and use of a pressure hose etc.) anyway I had sharp hot poker like pains running through my left breast which is the side of my most recent cancer scare, I didn't think anything of it at first but the pains proceed into the next day ( which was my day off) so I called my regular doctor her nurse said I probably just pulled a muscle doing a job I don't normally do, but to be aware if I get nauseous or short of breath or have sharp pains running down my left arm, in other words I probably pulled a muscle but it could be heart related. ( and there now is a heart health family history, my dad had a heart health scare a few months back.. So far the pain has subsisted but it is back to work tomorrow so we'll see. Until then I wish you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving... Count your Blessings not your woes!
God Bless

Imagine a world with out cancer
Stand Up to Cancer
Fight like a girl
The list goes on and on, bottom line is ' Ladies get your mammogram, they truly save lives, it saved mine twice. Fellows encourage the ladies you love to get their mammogram. Lets work together to fight the fight and kick cancers a**!

God @ work

I work with some amazing people. We had a benefit bake sale yesterday for a co-worker going through cancer treatments for the 3 time and we raised a crazy amount of money. It is such a comfort to know that when push comes to shove human nature takes over and we all look out for one another. God was truly at  work not only with all the amazing cooks that brought in baked goods but also in the generosity of all the people that instead of making a purchase donated gift cards. I had a goal in mind for what I'd be happy with and we doubled that. DPE is so deserving. and a HUGE thank you to my Nestle co-workers who helped make the sale a success.
Thank you all and God Bless

Had my routine physical today... And was joyfully reminded why I love my Doc. ( Dr. Jackie ) and her nurse ( Joy) they rock. I haven't seen them in about 7 years... And i was like I never left. They are awesome! And FYI! Squeeze in time for a mammogram.

7 years

Well this year it went by without even a thought but Sunday 7.24.11 marked 7 years since I was diagnosed with ( stage 2 ) BC the first time.  I always celebrated that as my " Life Day" . Now I guess I have a new one, March 8 ( which is when I was diagnosed with stage 0 ) Just another day to celebrate.
Please anyone seeing this get your mammogram it truly does save lives.
God Bless
