Bumps in the road!
I haven't been around for a while. September 8, 2017 I went to see my oncologist for my every 6 month check up. Long story short, during the exam he felt a lump up near my collar bone, inflamed lymph node. Return of my breast cancer, only not... Read more
Sometimes I hate when I'm right.
Had my physical last week, for the most part I'm doing well. I do feel a little fatigued after work and my hair has thinned more since chemo three years ago. I told my husband that I thought maybe I had low thyroid. All of these symptoms coul... Read more

Time to get serious

A little late but still got it!
Well, as easy as it could have been to NOT work out today, I did it! The plan was to do my walking video this morning after my devotional, but my husband said that there was too much on my plate this morning. He was probably right, I started a... Read more
