Even though treatment is not finished until February 2010, I feel very
Hopeful about the outcome. My mammogram came back good. I had to have several
extra films taken of my left breast. Not only did the machine squish me from top
to bottom but also side to side. An extra magnifying lens was used to examine
the films better. I go back in six months to have just my left breast done. This
will continue for two years and then afterwards go back to a yearly schedule. I
also received the news about my Echocardiogram. The results were better than the
last one taken in July. My walking has probably helped bring up my percentage..
I will continue trying to improve my overall health. Somedays it is hard to get
out there. There is so much going on this time of year. I'm hoping my blood
pressure is better this time before treatment. I was a little more careful about
the salty foods. In a few days, I will find out.
I could not even imagine trying to get up for all the Black Friday
specials. It was cold and my body does not move that quickly anymore. I did
however get out the Monday after all the craziness and was motivated and
successful. I may have a third left to do. I have cards to accomplish this week.
. The out of town cards will be completed first. My ten year old son maybe going
down the slippery slope of believing in Santa. He has been questioning me about
his letter to the North Pole. Then I reminded him that at the Shriner's Party on
Saturday that he could just tell Santa.. His response was(hesitating) "He knows
already mom, he just knows". So this is the last year and the secret about the
Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny will be no more. My children are the youngest
and it was getting harder every year to not say the No Santa phrase. I'm sad but
will be relieved.
Take a ride and enjoy the lights and holiday activities. Stay warm and
enjoy being with the people who bring you laughter.
My Faith will keep me strong and my Family will make me smile. Life is
