One Week Out: July 2

Leave a comment

Oh Good Lord. Just let me get on with it. I pray it every day. But the waiting continues. I’m actually “looking forward” to getting the surgery over with. Because that is the only way that we can find out any more about what lies ahead.

It’s strange but the waiting isn’t as torturous as it was before “knowing.”

On this milestone day in the countdown to July 9, I received a wonderful blessing.

Our kids and grandkids sent a care package.


  • Sephora facial mask
  • Easy-to-use Sephora cleanser for the day in the hospital
  • Moisturizers and other skin treats
  • Rosebud salve
  • A Tough Cookie card with very sweet notes and positive thoughts
  • Wonder Woman socks

BLOG_GoodieBoxYes – the grandkids picked out the socks!

My spirit was uplifted and I could almost feel little Hannah holding onto my fingers like she does when we go shopping.

Oh the power of family love.

A few months ago I wasn't but now I'm a statistic. That doesn't define me. I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a step mom, a grandmother, a friend and a Christian. I will continue to love exercise, music, cooking and food, and my family and friends. I'm stubborn, energetic, giving and too OCD for my own good sometimes. And I'm going to stay this way - despite cancer and the treatments that it takes to give it the royal beatdown.
