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.

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 […]

❀ My Life β€

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 […]

Cancer Sucks, Glad It’s Gone

So last week I went for my first checkup since radiation has been over. I had to wait three months to verify whether the cancer was gone or not because radiation the radiation had to be out of my body; apparently it makes the MRI look β€œfoggy.” My first appointment was at 11 and my […]
