Five Years

Sometimes I still can’t believe that I had brain cancer. My last surgery was 5 years ago today. The upside about hard times is that we learn how strong we are, who is there for us, what’s important in life, what isn’t, & most importantly, how great & how faithful God is. While I’m still […]

Motherhood, Marriage, Health, and Life

So things have been pretty great. I’m currently watching Hart of Dixie, and thinking about what I’m going to eat for lunch after this blog. Al is home today. We have a Texas winter storm today, which basically means the entire county and surrounding counties have been shut down because we got a quarter-inch of […]

That Time We Got Engaged

Two years ago today, the hott guy in this pic asked me to be his wife. I had just had brain surgery 3 weeks prior and started radiation 4 days before. Felt so gross from weight gain, weight loss from steroids/surgery, being skinny with a belly lol. Felt so crazy from roid-rages (be grateful if […]

Brain Cancer Rant

So there’s this article that people have been posting on Facebook recently about this woman with brain cancer, and it has really left Al and I baffled. The woman was originally diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytoma, same kind of tumor that I have. Her doctor told her she had 10 more years to live. […]

The Ongoings of The Richburgs

So my love is out of the Marine Corps now. He started his new job last week, which he seems to really like, so that’s awesome. And even more awesome that we get to keep Tricare for the rest of our lives, so insurance wasn’t an issue in him accepting a job. Monday we’re moving […]

We went to Houston this weekend, and had such a great time. Friday morning I had an appointment at MD Anderson. It was […]

It’s Been a Long Time…

Geeze, it has been a while! I’ve been meaning to blog, but I was waiting for Al to update my website so that it’s not linked to Tumblr anymore. We’ve had a lot going on though. Anyway, things have been really great. I got really depressed after my last entry. I got pregnant again, then […]

♥ Christmas, Cancer and Marriage ♥

So I’m typing on my new Asus Windows tablet. Al and I bought two for ourselves yesterday. It’s pretty nice. I can’t decide if I want to keep it or exchange it for a Chromebook. Google over Windows any day. Anyway, this week has been a real roller coaster. Last week was bad; I was […]

❤ My Life ❤

Al and I drove to Houston Monday night. I had appointments at MD Anderson Tuesday and Wednesday. The radiation department was a drag as always, but everything else was awesome. Originally, all 4 of my appointments were on Wednesday, but the radiation department called and said my radio-oncologist (the one who incorrectly told me that […]

The Fight Goes On…

This past week has been crazy-stressful. Apparently I have to be registered as an Exceptional Family Member for the Marines, because I haven’t been cancer-free for at least five years. So I logged on to MD Anderson website to print my diagnosis, and I checked the report I had on July 3rd. You know, the […]
