hey mom!  I know that things are pretty tough right now, but you’ve only got three more to go! Three! That’s practically nothing! That’s practically half a hand of fingers! You are so incredibly strong, and if you didn’t think so before YOU REALLY MUST BELIEVE THAT NOW! You are the strongest woman I know! I aspire to be even half as strong as you! Now only are you dealing with chemo, but you’re still doing a good amount of the things you did before you were even sick! It’s unbelievable! Honestly you are my hero, I could never keep my spirits high all the time like you do! But that’s what is needed, you need to stay optimistic and laugh at this ALMOST GONE cancer in it’s face and kick it’s dumb butt! I love you so much and I appreciate every thing you do so much! KEEP KILLIN IT YOU’RE DOING GREAT! and honestly you’re so beautiful  ain’t nobody gonna notice you don’t have any boobs for a while they’ll be too busy looking at your face per usual (:

 

This past week was incredibly difficult for my sister, she sent me a text on Friday that simply said “no more chemo, I’m done”.   I thought her oncologist had changed the game plan, no she decided she was tired of being exhausted, and dealing with the side effects of the chemo.   So, I have decided to dedicate the next three blogs to remind her who she is fighting for.

Three, two, one and she is done!

Blood count was a bit higher this week, her appointment was early which was good because the AC was out in the clinic.  Usually it feels like a freezer inside, they had to close the clinic early because it was too hot to mix the chemo, but she was able to finish.

I don’t know who is more excited about 3 more chemo treatments me or my sister, I am so happy for her, she has been through so much and she  keeps going!

She will have 24 days between her last chemo and surgery, so we plan to take her on a much needed and deserved beach vacation.  I keep telling her we are taking her boobies on a farewell tour lol!  God has big plans for my sister, and this journey is just the beginning.

Please continue to keep her in your prayers, Thursday’s after chemo are her worst days and she needs a boost of encouragement and extra prayers.

Faith over Fear

Blood count was good today!!  Four to go, now I dare her to eat all that food in front of her lol.

Thank you Carol Reynolds for being her chauffeur today, we are so BLESSED to have such wonderful family and friends!

FIVE!!

We are counting down now!  My sister’s blood count was low today so her chemo was decreased by another 10%.  But most important she can count her number of chemo treatments left on ONE HAND!!
