Mom is getting ready to start, I think her third week of radiation. It is really making her tired and her skin is really bothering her. I feel so bad for her. She doesn't feel like doing much of anything, but I am so grateful to God for her survival and her road to hopefully beating cancer.
The doctors really wanted her to try Chemo because the cancer was so close to her chest wall. Even her closest doctors that know her medical history urged her to try the oral type and said she could always stop if it really made her sick. I urged her to try as well, but I can't force her. She has to follow her own gut, but I fear what might happen down the road if the cancer does come back in another spot, and worse another spot in her body where it isn't as detectable. So, pray, pray, pray please. She needs those prayers.
I know she will get through this and she is keeping her sense of humor over all. She is addicted to these itty bitty books we have been doing and it has really helped to divert her attention so that is great. She is even doing the itty bitty pink book in honor of breast cancer month, October. Keep a watch out because one of these beautiful books will be auctioned off to help the cause. Way to go Mary Ann!
On another note, the picture above, the banner I made for my blog, are pictures of my girls when they were younger. I just love them both, the pictures and my girls as well, of course. Thanks to Caz for always inspiring me and for her compliments on my work.
Off to play at the park with both girls and my husband, which I am so thankful for. My oldest fell on Friday, right in front of me, and all I could think was, "Oh, my gosh, she almost nailed her face on that cedar chest" just to have her turn and look up at me. She did just that, nailed her poor little face right on the cheek bone. She now has a swollen black eye and I just feel so bad for her. My mom told me that I did the same thing, on the same cedar chest, when I was a girl. I had two black eyes and I don't remember any of it. I don't think I will be passing that chest on to either girl because I fear the way things come in threes and if I am blessed enough to have grandchildren one long, long day from now, I don't want to jinx them!
Have a great week and check back soon for the huge giveaway I will be having with not one, but two winners!
