Life is good
Wow, where to begin. I am healing well from my surgery. I have finally researched online about my nerve pain and found some helpful information. I read about the drug lyrica. I called my doctor and asked about a prescription for it since the pain pills he perscribed have not been working. My chest has been hurting so bad, and I could not stand the pain anymore. One day on the Lyrica and...........NO PAIN. It is completely gone. I feel great. I have cut way, way back on my pain pills. I thing tomorrow I will not even take them. I go for my second pump-up on Tuesday. I Love Tuesdays. I am wearing a sports bra now and I am loving it. My fundraiser ended on Thursday. Joy, Liane, Aunt Gail and Gina went to the home office for the potato lunch and the drawing. I loved their company. With every ones help, Women's Life was able to collect 1,026.00 with half going to me and half going to a lucky lady named Collette. Like I mentioned before, Women's Life will also add 500.00 to my half. They had a Jewelery sale at the home office and the proceeds from that will be donated to me too. I feel so blessed to have so many people who care about me. Having this money will help tremendously with paying many of my doctor bills off. AMEN. Tonight I went with my friend Sue (Joy was suppose to go also, but she is home very sick. She was in my prayers tonight) to dinner and to a christian concert. The band was Sanctus Real. If you have never heard their music, please Utube them. They are awesome!!! Worshiping the Lord on a Friday night, life is good. It was amazing to see so many young teenage kids there. I felt all night that the Lord was smiling down on the group. How nice to see so many kids that have given their hearts to the Lord. It has been two hours and I still have the holy spirit in my heart. It feels so good. I hope anyone who reads my blog knows Jesus and has a personal relationship with him. He loves all of us! I am still trying to figure out why he chose me to have cancer at such a young age. What is his purpose? I search for the reasoning daily. I do know that since my diagnosis, my life has slowed down. I do not party as much. I also lean on him often, which I know he loves. And I love worshipping him. My relationship with Keith has improved big time. So I guess I do see the blessings. My Church friends have been a blessing too. Rob and Patty, they sent me a 100.00 check yesterday. They are such caring people. With the economy the way it is in Michigan, helping me financially......... that is true kindness. I know Patty has read my blog in the past so, if you are still checking in, Please know I Love You Guys. Work has been going good. I have has lots of babies. They just lift my spirits ALWAYS. Hockey games for both boys tomorrow. I will be back after the games.
