What is happening?

Friday, November 30, 2012

well.. since March I have only gotten bad news about my health.

Like I told you in my last blog the cancer has spread to the brain and I went to 10 radiations (lost my hair again). I have also been in chemo therapy since March every second Wednesday but I am sorry to say that it is not helping.

The cancer has spread to my shoulders, hips, more of my spine and more in my brain.

I am not having much pain, but I get tired really soon and I have not been able to exercise. Also my sense of taste have change a lot so I have been having difficulting eating.

But things have not all been bad :) I went to Boston with my sister and it was awesome. I tried working for a while and that felt grate, I have also been reading a lot of books that I love and spending quality times with family and friends.

Because of my situation and I know a lot of you are wondering what the status is I am going to post it now and some other time, but stop blog about health issues and diet.

So if I blog I am just putting it out on Spark how I am doing :)

Thank you for all your goodies and messages!!!

In one week, got married, diagnosed with cancer in my brain and went for a 10K "Race"

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I can't describe the feeling I am having all over my body and soul how this week has gone.

On Sunday just one week ago I got married to my husband that I have been lived with and loved for 8 years.

On Wednesday they found more cancer in my brain in two places and I am starting radiation with the chemo therapy because of the cancer that is in my spine.

The first thing I asked was "Can I go to the 10k race on saturday?"... the doctor said YES IF YOU WALK! hehehe.. OK I will walk, I will promise not to run (even though I ran the last 200m :))

I went with my family and friends, Enjoyed it so much!

You sure can do what your mind tells you, what you can do when you decide it!

I am feeling more glad than sad, but I think the sadness will come later this week when I start to relise how serious my situation is. But for now, I am enjoying live! My 16 years old daughter is going for a year to Austria for 10 months wow! and we had a party for her today and lot's of friends came and said good bye to her. I hope I will see her back again when she arrives safe home!

Here you can enjoy some pictures from Saturday :)

Please enjoy the day you have it is so important!

    I am so amazed by your generous spirit. I know what a tough choice it was for you that your daughter will be away for so long, but you really do milk life for everything it is worth, and it is admirable that you encourage everyone around you to do the same! I have a 10K coming up in September that I was training to run in, since pneumonia reared it's ugly head again, I have had to halt my training to run it. I am determined now to walk it for sure, you have inspired me! I have been starting to walk again, and I can work up to it by mid September. Many thanks to you for sharing your trials and triumphs constantly, it really does remind me of how important each day is. Fight baby fight!

P.S. Love the photos! Reminds me of our MS150 bike events; we made good friends w/our motorcycle escorts bcz we were so SLOW!

10k race tomorrow even though I was diagnosed with more cancer on wednesday

Friday, August 17, 2012

This has been a strange week! Got married on Sunday, went to chemo on Wednesday that did not go so well because the doctors found 2 tumors in my head.

After one night at the hospital and some scans it came out as 1 tumor that is 5mm and another 3mm really deep in my brain.

ok.. what to do.. Reykjavik Marathon 10k after three days and the first ting I asked my doctor was CAN I GO?!?!?!...

He laughed and said.. yes but WALK!... ok.. it's a deal!

So tomorrow with cancer in my spine in 7 places and 2 in my head I AM GOING no matter what!!! I will just take my tima and go with the spirit of love!

The wedding was grate, the sermonic was at home, the priest came to our apartment and we had a lovely family gathering, everyone was so happy and joyful and enjoyed this little ceremony so much. You don't need this fancy stuff to get married, just be in the moment and live it! with your closest family.

Here are some pictures for you to see from the day :)

next week I am going again to radiation but now on my brain, but like always my goal is to live while I can and do everything I want and can do :)

Getting married on Sunday

Friday, August 10, 2012

I am getting married next Sunday :) :) :)

I know I have always talked about my hubby as a husband but I never remember how to write (I have to look it up now) fiancÚ.

The doctor told us to hurry up the wedding because of the cancer situation, but we were going to do it 12.12.12 but instead it will be 12.08.12. ( I think there is a lot of power in this date.

This is my grate-grandmother's birthday.
If you take 12 the day and 2012 the year and do a little math 1+2+2+1+2 you get a 8 but the number eight is a sign for eternity so I got two 8 together! We started seeing each other 12.12 (12 of december) 8 years ago, so that is a sign also and yes.. Lot's of power I think :)

The wedding and the ceremony will be at home, the priest is coming home to us, but the closest family will come. Parents, Grandparents, Brothers and Sisters and our children.. 17 people but my hubby's mother has past away but We have bought a flower of 17 red roses (each for every guest and the priest) and one Pink one for his mother as a symbol (so we again get the number 8 in it, 18 roses!)

I have bought the dress it's red :), got the rings, went to the nuns in Iceland and get a wedding candle, talked to our bakery to make a cake and all kind of stuff!

The cancer battle is ongoing, I have started chemotherapy again, went to surgery the other day to get a port, but I think I can work this time with the therapy so I am going to try :)

I will post pictures from the wedding when they arrive :)

Have fun exercise and stay healthy!

Here are some pictures from my summer vacation :)

The wedding rings are in this box :)

And here is the jewellery I am going to wear

If anyone can prove cancer and the doctors wrong - it is you!!!

    Oh what a beautiful bride you will be! I am so very happy for you! The number 8 in the bible means "new beginnings/resurrection". Jesus was born in Bethlehem and it is mentioned 8 times in the bible. He says HE IS the resurrection and the life and if we ask him to come into our hearts we will have that new beginning and when we die we will be resurrected to live with him forever.

I hope your wedding day is what you have always dreamed of. What a JOYOUS day it will be!

Love You!

    Big hugs, loads of love, and wishing you a beautiful day. My 2nd DH and I also got married at home - in our bedroom as he was bedridden - and it was such an emotional day for the family and friends.

Wishing you strength and, again, love!

What is going on?

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I know you want to follow up what is going on so here it goes...

Today I started chemo therapy again! The medicines I have been taking is not working so the doctor told me that bad news today and started the chemo...

I will probable not lose my hair, thank god for that! But I guess there will be side effects.

I hope I can still work, we are doing so much cool things at work that I do not want to miss it! I just love my job!!!! :)

I cried and cried at the hospital, but now I am gathering my thoughts... It scared me when the doctor told us that we should hurry our wedding, but it was supposed to be 12.12.12 (cool date!) but I guess I am going to make some legal documents next week and get them stamped so we can get married.

I have always said that this cancer is not going to stop me from living and now I am in summer vacation from work and the weather here in Iceland now is fantastic good! Sun and more sun and more sun and no wind! LOVE IT!

I have also got some medicine for my sadness and that is helping me a lot to be positive and grap anything that comes in my hands.

I am doing my own greens and I have started taking them from the ground and wow they are so good!!!!

My hubby, son and I went to the beach (there is only one white sand beach in Reykjavik :) beaches in Iceland are all black) and had a fantastic time, also I had a sister day with my sisters :) and that was awesome. And one day we just went down town and did some stuff :)

You must try to live your life when you have the health and that is what I am doing... One day at the time. And wow I have a lot on my list that I want to do!

I hope you are enjoying the summer!!!! :)

    You are doing an amazing job! Keep it up.

Do you have access to breast milk? Their is a bit of a trend going on over here with some women with cancer who are drinking 400mls of breast mikd a day to help fight the cancer. Because of all the wonderful properties in breastmilk it is great for helping the immune system. Would you be able to access any?

Worth researching.

    No wind! In Iceland! You better enjoy that while it lasts. I'm glad mother nature has supplied good weather for you and your vegetables. Your son is getting so big. I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've seen you all. That guy with you on the bench must be the most photographed man in all of Iceland! I hope that you stay well through this round of treatment, keep your hair and lose the cancer. I know your wedding will be beautiful no matter what the date. Though I have to admit 12/12/12 would be pretty cool. I say save the date for a six month renewal of your vows. There's lots of Sparkers out here rooting for you. Stay positive. Stay strong.

    Today is also a good date, 12.7.12, and next month again there's 12.8.12 - all good days and best of all that you will be celebrating your love for each other. It's good that I don't write months the US way, isn't it :))
Do share with us your wedding preparations and the celebration - stay strong and enjoy every moment of every day in every way you can. Love you! xxx

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and I shall put you on our prayer line here in Attleboro, Massachusetts. You are not alone because you have friends and family who will help you along the way to health. You even have your SPARKS friends! So there!
Your precious little boy seems to like helping you in the garden. What is his name?
You are a very pretty young lady with a beautiful smile.
Thank you for sharing your story with us.
Your vegetable garden is gorgeous and bright. I planted two tomato plants and they are withering away as I write this. I do not have a green thumb.
My best wishes to you,
