I have been doing pretty well lately.  I had a bone scan and ct scan in December and results were somewhat positive.  My bones were stable, the cancer in my liver had shrunk a little bit, and the lump in my breast grew a bit.  I seemed to be having a "mixed reaction" to my medicine, where the medicine is only working on some parts of my body, but not all.  Had a bit of a set back the week before Christmas when I found a lump in my good breast. After a biopsy, we found out that it was indeed cancerous.  It is so small, we have no idea if it has always been there or was a new lump.  We went ahead and changed my medication.  I have another CT scan tomorrow on my liver to see how it is reacting to the new medication.  Please pray it turns out well, and the cancer is still shrinking.

My mom & I took the kids to FL a couple weeks ago for a week of fun in the sun.  We had a wonderful time staying with my Uncle in Boca Raton and then a day at Disney World.  Kyle surprised us at our hotel and went to Disney with us!! It was such a surprise and so much fun.  The kiddos had a great time.  We had breakfast with some characters and went on at least 5 rides without much waiting.  It was the perfect Disney trip!

I am so thankful for every good day I have.  I am also thankful that the cancer seems to be staying put, without much spreading.  I pray every day that it continues to stay put or just disappears altogether would be nice as well.  I am so thankful for the help I have.  Kyle does everything for me.  After working and going to class everyday, he comes home to vacuum and clean up the kitchen every night.  My mom still comes down once a week and cleans my entire house and does the laundry.  My Grandma helps with watching the kids if i have an appointment and is always bringing food to the house, which is a huge blessing!!!  Still thankful for everyone out there praying for me.  I need all the prayers I can get!
