Just to let everyone know, I now have nothing in my body, that I know of, that is not just me. The medi-port is offically gone. All that is left is a large bruise and some stitches. I am still a bit sore, but that is quickly fading away.

As you might imagine, it is a relief to finally have that thing removed.

The surgery went well and I did pretty good afterwards. (I said, "pretty good" because I did have some nausea afterwards) Thank you all for your prayers.

I'll post again later!

The End of the Year

Last year about this time I underwent surgery to have a medi-port put in so that I could start chemo. Tommorrow it comes out. Sept 22, 2005 it was put in place and I had big battle ahead of me. Tommorrow, Sept 21, 2006 I will have it removed and expect to have a good year next year.

So much has happened in the time that I did that surgery. I have been a lot of places, learned a lot of things, met a lot of people. I am a different person.

If you are reading this before 8:00 am Central Time, please pray for me. This will be an "easy" procedure compared to the placement but it is still a surgery.

Yes, This is a New Post! :-)

Once again it has been a woefully long time since I updated everyone here. I am sorry. So much happens and it is so hard to get it all written! :-) I will give a quick overview of the last few months.

As posted before, we are in our new house and oh, are we enjoying that! The house is not completed yet, but we have what we need each day and that is all we need at the moment. The space is so nice. We can actually spread out a bit. I have been working on getting it organized and I think that is going well. :-) I love my big kitchen and new appliances. Right now I am still using the original cabinets but David is planning to add new ones and update the old ones soon. But I am happy, I have more space than I did in the other house and I definitely have more space than in the trailer. :-) So, all is well!

I did enjoy getting my cupboards painted last week. I did a black and white scheme. I did the inside of the cupboards white, and the drawers and doors white. All the facings I painted black. I will post a picture when I get home and take one.

Right now we are in Galveston. I went in yesterday for tests and will find out Friday what the results are. I know that everything is okay and am not worried about it.

It sure does feel good to be able to be back in the swing of things. I am reminded being down here just how bad I felt and what how far God has brought me. I am just so thankful.

Here is a picture that Keilah took of me. I have my hat on, but maybe it will give those who haven't seen me in a while an idea of what I look like these days. :-)

I will try to post more often, but that has been said before......
