Remember ME!

I can't believe it has been two months since I have updated my blog! What is wrong with me? I can answer that.....I have been really busy and not taking the time to do the things I should.

Let me just update you on me first. I am feeling much better. All of my chemo treatments are behind me. As you can see from the picture I am finally getting hair again. I have already had a mammogram since my treatments and everything was fine. I just went Friday for my blood work to make sure things are fine there. As far as the dr. visit...I am doing well. I am down 25 lbs. from when all of this mess started. Yeah for me! I could stand to lose another 60 or so but that is a dream. These pictures were taken at the Longaberger Homestead. We had such a great time that day! What a big basket I was standing in front of. It had apples in it. Wonder how they made all of that? Amazing!

One of the awesome things that has happened through all of this is my oncologist, who is the best doctor in the whole world, asked me to consider being on the Butler County (the county I live in) American Cancer Society Board. He thinks I have done an amazing job with all I have been through and keeping the attitude I did and thought it would be beneficial to the board. I jumped on it and am now the Breast Cancer Mission Chair Person for our Board. I am excited. If I can help improve people's lives doing this then it was meant for me. Thanks to Dr. Crane for thinking of me for this. Did I say he was wonderful?

Since October 28th Avis Anderson, another TAC demonstrator, has been visiting. We have done a lot of stamping. I wish I could put everything we have done on here but I can't for now. Some of them are projects I am using for some other things right now. We went through a bunch of swap cards I have received and did some stamp lifting. Not to mention we visited some blogs and did the same thing. I want to thank all of the TAC demonstrators we got ideas from. I should have written them down but forgot! View the slide show I have added. It has some of those cards plus some cards from some classes I have done lately.

I promise to try and update a lot more now that I have gotten this done. I so need to be better at these things. I hope you all enjoy my post and I am happy to be here and hope you enjoy your day!
