Challenge Accepted

The last month and a half has been busy. Same ol’ same ol’ with the chemo routine. I was able to have my third treatment in Grant on July 29. As soon as I was done…I called my oncologist’s office and requested they send a referral for me to UCHealth. I think they were happy […]

Sometimes I Forget…

This is going to be more of an educational post. Sometimes I forget that not everyone has the same medical knowledge that I do, and I was told that I am good at “side stepping” some details. I want to start out by saying that I haven’t intentionally left out or “side- stepped” any details. […]


Although I was upset that I couldn’t stay right on the 3 week schedule by getting my 2nd treatment in Grant on Friday, it turned it to be a good thing. This weekend was filled with fun in the sun and under the stars, surrounded by family and friends. We were able to enjoy just […]

When it rains…

Coming at you with another update. The first week after my treatment on the 12th was definitely not fun. From previous experience, I knew that I needed to take it easy. So I did. Well the aches and pains set in Sunday afternoon. Anyone who knows me knows that I would rather wait out the […]

We’ve all heard stories of divine intervention, but have you ever personally experienced it? You’re frustrated over running late for work, and then realize you may have been involved in a huge accident […]

Perspective vs Perception

WOW!! It has been 3 years!!! Some days it feels like much longer, but others it seems like just yesterday! The following may be a little difficult to follow, but here we go… That day I was diagnosed was a blessing!! God was telling me to slow down and he knew this was about the […]

What a Year!

February 5. This is a day that will always stay with me, like a birthday or anniversary. 11:09 am. This is a time I don’t think will ever fade completely out of my memory. It has been 1 year since receiving the phone call. The one where at first I thought the nurse was just […]
