When Live Throws You Curves....Ya Gotta Learn To Swerve

So I guess today, I'm swerving.  Well at least my head is spinning.  Two weeks ago I had a hysterectomy, where I had a 15 lb. tumor removed from my right ovary.  We met with my Doctor today, and she is definitely recommending 3 rounds of chemo as there were definitely signs of stage 1 cancer.  The chemo will be done in the hospital for 4 days every 21 days.  They will install a port to administer the three types of chemo.  Bummer!

I don't want to bring anyone down and please don't feel sorry for me.  I have faith and know that God will bring me through this's just that right now I'm kinda numb, ya know?

They say the hospital has Wi-Fi so at least I can have ny laptop with me, and maybe even finish my rug hooking project that I started years ago.....That's a good thing.



  1. Well I am still praying for you and just have a feeling you will be fine. I am glad they found it in stage 1.If you will be there with wi-fi and you are going to finish your hooking then you have the right attitude and that is very important. Keep us posted. I would love to see what you are hooking. I'll bet it is beautiful.

  2. In times like these when it is so very clear that WE are not in control, aren't you thankful for that sweet peace that comes knowing you are in HIS loving hands.
    I'll be praying for you.

  3. Wishing you strength to get through the chemo. Will be thinking about you. It is good the hospital has WI-FI as that will help you pass the time.

  4. Susie-Thank God they discovered it when they did. Chemo is not pleasant but with Stage 1 it is sooo treatable. I have a feeling that God is watching over you and your family and you will just breeze through this. One of the things they don't tell you is how tired you will lots of rest and don't feel depressed when you are not up and running like your usual energetic self. Rest, rest, rest. Hugs to you-Diana

  9. Oh my goodness!

    With your kind and strong spirit and positive attitude I am sure you will meet this challenge. I am just so sorry you have to go through this.

    The wonderful side of blogdom is now even more of us will add you to our prayers.

    One step at a time, one day at a time will get you to your one year anniversary just like my 2 friends here in Vegas..survivors of breast and colon cancer.

    Their advice to you would be to rest often. I heard it time and time again from both of them. So take loving care of yourself.

    Blessings to you
