It's All Good

Thank you for all the heart warming,  supportive comments (and compliments)!  I am blessed and so very grateful for the inspiration to write.

I met Joey Lee today.  She's a nurse that educates cancer patients on the fun of radiation.  :)  I learned more then I knew, and was even able to come home and explain everything to Mom and Dad. 

My PT/INR is 6.  Houston, we have a problem.  Funny thing is, they don't know what it is!!  Seems to be my heart is having issues again.  I'm still off of the Coumadin.  I get to see Ms Val tomorrow for blood work again--Wednesday, my oncologist and cardiologist.  You should see all the places they stuck me with needles . Ahhhh the beauty of bruises!

I spoke with a friend who I met years ago at a wedding.  It seemed too long since we talked and even hours after we were catching up, there was still more to say.  Priceless. 

I'm 35 years old and live with my parents.  I have cancer, diabetes and a heart condition the doctors still can't figure out.  I have a sister who has never given up on me, friends that continually support me and great faith in God that didn't exist until I "got sick".  Look at me any way you choose to. No matter what you say, I promise you life is oh so good.

 I love y'all.  Thank you for taking this journey with me.  Good Night.

 

Please say prayers for: Dawn Brown*Sherry and family*Chris Read *Nathan *Cassie and family*Ms Dawn *Cathy's dad, Bill and her mom, Pam*Lisa and her family *Ms Bobby * Mr. Russo*Ms Pammy *Cindy*Tammy*Momma Joyce*MsMargie*Krissy's husband,John*Trish*Sugar*Mr. Carey and his wife, Irene*Jay Carey and his family.*Frances and her son, Matthew.

Irene,

I know what you mean. I am 42 with diabetes, heart, kidney and nerve damage, and none of it really matters. None of that effects who I am and who I will be in the future.

You are a remarkable woman on an amazing journey. I'm glad to be part of it in a little way and I thank you for what you have said about my own journey, and the words I use to tell about it.

Jason
