look at me I'm blogging!

Happy 2008 to everybody. Sorry there has been such little blogging going on but things have been crazy ever since I went into surgery. I just wanted to write a bit about how much better I am doing. I was able to come off the wound vac almost 2 weeks ago and I think it is safe to say my incision wound is now healed completely. I am also feeling so much stronger and am getting my appetite back to full swing. It has felt great to do "crazy stuff" with my kids after dinner and just tickle, roughouse and in general go crazy. I have felt much much better these last two weeks.

We go to see Dr. Moriarty on the 21st of Jan. From that date we will be scheduling scans of some nature. Once the scans are done and the reports read and reviewed, Dr. Dan will have are our plan. I am most likely going right back into chemo which is fine. Whatev. eh? And that's all we really know at this point.

I want to continue to thank everyone who is praying for us. I continue to pray for all who are praying for me so we should all get our bases covered. But seriously, God is the supreme physician and He determines my fate. He is bigger than cancer. I have to diligently remind myself of those things all the time because the last few months have felt very bleak to me. But I just try to plow through all that negative crap and go froward. But all I have, we have, is God. I need Jesus on my side. Jesus didn't create disease or negativity. But he did create me, and as I learned in my 2nd grade CCD class "God don't make no junk." I think of that phrase all the time now and actually spurs me on. I won't stand for this and I know He won't either.

Thank you all for your support love and prayers. We deeply appreciate it.

thinking of you...
that's a great quote.

Somebody sent me this one the other day (it's been a week where I kind of needed a reminder of Who Is Bigger Than All This Garbage)...
"Don't tell God how big your storm is. Tell the storm how big your God is."

We are praying for you...hang in there!
peace,

Karen,

We don't know you personally, but my husband Paul knows your husband through work. We just want you to know - we are happy you are better...and we hope you continue this path of "betterness" each day going forward.

Karen-
So glad to hear that you are able to do "Mom" things-tickling is essential to proper growth :)
Thank you for your strength and for praying for all of us! You are amazing that you would think of others in your "darkest hours". I could sure use your brave example as I have to go for advanced testing for my back. I will be praying for you and hope that you continue on this path to wellness!! God love you, girl!
Love from AZ,
