Sorry!!

I am sorry for all the worried emails and text's and phone calls. Internet has been down since last night so I wasnt able to post anything in regards to the update from my Doctors visit on Wednesday. I am actually super suuuuuuuper tired so Im gonna be brief.

I am scheduled for 2 LDR internal radiation treatments. (Sept 28th and Oct 7th). Each requires a 3 day stay in the hospital in isolation. The details of the procedure are not pretty and I think the Dr I saw today referred to it as slightly barbaric (YIKES) Id prefer not to spill the details on this blog unless someone out there REALLY wants to know all the nitty gritty and if so I will be happy to email you the info.....I just think there might be some people who wouldn't be comfortable with the graphics of the procedure if you get my drift.

They all seem to think that this is the best way to treat me at this point and the fact that I am young and continue to be active is whats allowing them to even CONSIDER surgery after these treatments. I'm told surgery is def. NOT the standard in a case such as mine and would be cutting edge. Whooohoooo for cutting edge!!

On a side note...I got my hair cut today. I got it cut 6 weeks ago and had anticipated being bald by now.....nope...had to cut an inch off. For now......You just never know and I do still have one more Chemo treatment to go. Any thing is possible. Today the boy and I ran a bunch of errands, went out to lunch, saw a doctor, had radiation, got my hair cut, grocery shopping, checked the game cameras and made dinner for the family. All in all Id say I'm doing pretty damn good!!

Love you guys!!!

You're so fricking amazing with all that you accomplish in addition to the hell your body is being put through. I read up on the internal radiation...no need for specifics from you...yowza! i will be saying some heavy duty prayers for you while you endure these "barbaric" treatments. You have done so well thus far...I know the upcoming wont be easy but you sure have one hell of a support team. Wish I could help with the physical symptoms...all i can do is pray! You are thought of every day with love, prayers and support being sent your way. Hang tough my friend...you are a winner!

I, too, have read up on what will be happening. I know that this will be a difficult part, but, with your strength, and so many that are loving you and holding you to God, you will come thru this like a champ! You are the strongest person I know, and the bravest. Tell "the boy" that we are counting on him to pass hugs from all of us that can't be there with you, on to you! So many of us wish we could be there! Just know our hearts are there with you, full of love and faith, and will be praying diligently for this to all have a happy ending and be over soon for you! Hang in there!! Love to you!
