Eye still on the prize

I'm an 11 yr breast cancer survivor, who suffered from severe neuropathy due to Taxol (chemo drug) with pain throughout my body for most of this time. My battle with the neuropathy is being won, however. No pain meds since 5/6/10. I credit this to my having had a 2nd mastectomy 12/09 (my choice, not cancer) plus the purchase of the most amazing shoes.

For about a year the title to this page was "Gotta do it". I changed it on 1/10/10 to "I AM doing it". On 8/19/10 I've ...

For about a year the title to this page was "Gotta do it". I changed it on 1/10/10 to "I AM doing it". On 8/19/10 I've updated and changed it once again to "Eye still on the prize". After being off for 178 days and regaining 15 pounds (yikes!) I've already lost 4 (yeah!). I have been able to be on my feet, walk, and exercise for the first time in years. Although I've lost some weight battles the past year I am now on my way to win the war.

I attend Renaissance Faires but would love to dress up for them. The costumes are amazing, but until I stop fluctuating weight I can't see spending the money on them. I've always had a relationship with the Lord, but my husband decided last year he wanted to start going to church so we've been going ever since. I'm not able to dance yet, but I'm hoping by end of summer my strength will be there. I keep myself busy with our new business, visiting with family and friends, and of course every second I can spend with my husband! Our room mate is moving out and so a wee bit stressed about us managing on our own with all our medical bills, but we are going to be fine. We haven't unpacked because our room mate wanted to use his stuff so get to see what has been packed since 2010. I would really like to hear how you are doing?
Love & Hugs, Robin
