Yesterday was my first real breakdown- I am sure there will be many more! I have filled my mind with positive stories, like Cissy's, and put the bad ones out of my mind (like my dear friend Anne). So when I watched Robin Roberts yesterday, and how she is now going through a bone marrow transplant because of what she went through with the breast cancer, it hit me that the unknown is still awaiting me in this fight.
My army is so huge though! It is bigger than I could EVER imagine- the outpouring of support and the gifts that I have recieved since last friday, have been so overwhelming. I love each and every one of you. I am staying strong and staying positive.
Tuesday Kim, Cissy and I will be going to Dr Robbins to find out the results from the MRI and to map out our plans. Lloyd and Cindi will be taking off from work during the surgeries and the chemo (if it is needed), so we are letting them pass on the office visits. They will all be recorded, just in case the three of us can't remember something.
I can't sit here and do nothing of substance in this fight, so I signed up to walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on October 27th. I would love to have everyone join me!! If I am unable to walk, I will have you all meet at my house (so I can see you) and then go up there to walk together, as a platoon!!
I really hope to put off all treatment till after Kristi's wedding. That's my plan anyway, if I can be in charge! Ha ha Anyway, if that is the case, I will have the surgery as soon after her wedding as possible. If I do that, I will not be able to walk, but it has always been important for me to raise money for the American Cancer Society, so this walk gives me the opportunity to do something positive, through this negative! I would love everyone to sign up and help me (now more than ever in this cause!). Sign up now!!
Keep up the prayers and I will keep up the fight! Thanks again to all of you!! I love you all!
