Cancer patients can be introduced to a lot of different drugs with a lot of different side effects. You may think they will never happen to you but they can. And its real. See what I mean.

Surviving Side Effects: My life flashed before my eyes today…sorta. Lets just say that the last couple of treatments have taken it to the next level. Never mind the hair loss, vomiting, and neuropathy. The previous treatment warped my body into a human Bumble Ball, aka severe chills, but this last drug…

I had a dose of this drug 3 weeks ago and things went great, aside from one day of vomiting (trust me, that’s good). The second dose was a different story. Before being

Faith or Fear

When you have cancer you have to make a choice about how to live your life. For me, it was betweem faith and fear. I chose faith.

I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to write about. My world has consisted of cancer and depression for the past 2 months and that is rather sad to write about. But I’ve had a breakthrough. A mental breakthrough. An emotional breakthrough. It came down to me choosing faith or fear. So I want to talk to you a little bit about faith. I’ve said before that I’m a Christian but these last few days have made me think harder and more clear about my faith and I’d

When you realize you can't cut corners with a toddler. Make sure you get your story straight the first time. You'll be asking the question: Are you smarter than a three year old.

Lets talk about something humorous today. Yes. My son. And the fact that he’s got me asking myself: Are You Smarter Than A Three Year Old? At this point, I’m inclined to say no.

So he’s a bit smarter than I’m ready to deal with. The Toddler Talk posted above is just one example out of MANY where he chooses to correct me. And I’m can accept being corrected, even by a three year old (although it gets embarrassing sometimes) until he throws that kind of stuff out when

Clinical Trial Phases and Faith

Clinical trials happen all of the time but do you know about the phases? They can save your life just know a little about what your getting in to and the faith you might need.

Man O Man. I have been tired and stressed but I might be back on track for a few. So……….

The second clinical trial didn’t work. I didn’t see my recent scan but my doctor was very clear about the fact that it wasn’t working. But I knew it wasn’t. Although my neck nodes were down, my back hurt (the Hodgkin’s newest home is on my spine. Tugs on some nerves back there and leaves me wanting Bengay….bad) and I’d been coughing. Although

Cancer Depression

Cancer depression is built on its own set of circumstances. The burden is real.
 

Geez, I haven’t written forever. I was in a dark place. I was depressed. But what does that look like in terms of a mom with cancer? Well, having gone this long having a cancer that was supposed to be gone with a 6 month treatment, I am now in uncharted territory for myself and for my doctors. What that means is that the idea of death is a constant in my life. And even if I “beat” this cancer, I will never be free from the stress of the possibility of getting it again. Living
