Only 2 More!!

Hallelujah! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Only 2 more chemo treatments left! August 27th will be my last treatment and then I'm going to party! My sweet husband deserves an award for "HUSBAND OF THE YEAR". He has put up with all of my complaining and crying and depressed moods. I can't wait to be done with chemo . . . my fingernails are my worst complaint right now. They are all lifting off of the nail beds and it's just disgusting. But soon they should be getting better. I will be able to schedule my surgery date after my last chemo treatment. It's driving me nuts not being able to plan anything in September yet. Tomorrow I meet with a different plastic surgeon for another opinion on my reconstruction. He comes highly recommended so I'll need to decide between him and and the first plastic surgeon that I met with.

I have been so thankful that I've been able to enjoy my summer for the most part. I'm so glad that it worked out this way that the Taxol was during the summer and not the harder A/C that I started out with in the spring. Besides the fingernails, I've really not had many other complaints and have been able to do most of the things that I've wanted to do! And then it will work out well that my surgery and radiation will be during school so I won't have to worry about finding places for my girls to go during the day! The Lord is taking care of all of the details!

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers! Please don't stop! I appreciate all of you!


  1. That is such great news....the chemo is almost done!! I keep you in my thoughts and prayers everyday....hugs to the girls...I miss them. And Kudos to your HUSBAND for being there for you.


  2. I appreciate you! You are a blessing! SO happy to hear the good news. :-)

  3. Okay, so I just received a call today that my surgery is scheduled for September 20th. It feels so good to have it scheduled and now I can plan around it, but now I'm getting more nervous!

  4. We are very proud of you Linda and always proud of our Son for all he has helped you with during this time.
    We are so THANKFUL for your walk with the Lord. Without Him we are nothing! He gives us a future and hope! You were such a blessing to us on Sat. and it means the world to us. Always here to help you with our beautiful little precious Granddaughters. Just let us know your needs.
    Only by His Grace, Mom & Dad D. ^j^

  5. Haven't stopped praying, Linda! I'm so glad a happy end is in sight. I need to come by and get my coat sometime before it gets cold. *wink* We'll have to plan something, when you're feeling up to it.

    Love you,

  6. Hey Girl, I just stumbled on to the fact that you have been fighting breast cancer. I know you are alomst done with your treatment, but I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I remember watching your little girl pull out her first tooth on your facebook page and it gave my son the courage to pull his. Thank you for sharing your story, it inspires the rest of us who take things for granted : ) Beth Hetkey
