CHLA Appt.

So I finally have my next appointment down at CHLA scheduled. I only have to go down every 6 months instead of every 3 now :) This coming weekend my sisters and I are participating in a rodeo for cancer awareness. We get to run flags....and of course I'm having the green flag!!! I am sooo excited =]
Today I was listening to Air1 (a Christian radio station) and they read Isaiah 43: 1- 2 "Do not be afraid , for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you!" It is so know that God is with us even through those moments when it feels like all is lost - He is right there, holding us close

Ear Appt.

I went to the audiologist today and had a hearing and balance test. The hearing test was easy but the balance test made me dizzy. Luckily it only last for about a minute but I had to have it done twice..once for each ear. Afterwards the doctor said that my dizziness is definetly caused by the balance part of my ear, specifically my right ear. He doesn't know if it is related to chemo or not and if it is what he thinks it is, the severity of my dizzy spells should begin to lessen..not because it's getting better but because my brain will realize that it is inaccurate information. So he will send the results to the ear,nose, and throat doctor and then we will go from there. I am just so thankful that it is my ears and not my heart or my blood :)


-God Bless

2 Years

This past Sunday January 9th was the 2 year anniversary of when I was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I can't believe it has already been 2 years. I feel so blessed and humbled to have that all behind me but I wouldn't take it back because I no God has a plan for me.
Jeremiah 29:11
I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I want to send out another THANK YOU to all my friends and family who supported me and helped me through it!!! And of course a THANK YOU to God who I most certainly would not have made it through without.

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

A lot has changed in these 2 years but at the same time a lot has stayed the same. I am so thankful for my health and I will continue to be grateful for everything that God so faithfully provides for me :D

Sunshine & Smiles

God Bless

Happy New Years =]

Wow...I can't believe it's 2011 already...that's crazay!!! I went to the ear specialist and he definitely thinks my dizziness has something to do with my ears so I have to go in for a hearing test and then that may help him decide which ear it is. He also said that the best way for him to figure it out is for me to have a dizzy spell again...which I really don't want to have one again..and then come in when I am having it. I just hope they can some how figure it out before i have another one :) It's also time for me to go down to CHLA yet again, even though I never went down again to see Gaynon after last time, but its the 3 month mark for my scan. I called twice this week with no reply so I will try again this week, at this rate I prolly wont be seen for a while :P
Well I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Years :)

Hebrews 12:14 'Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life....'
-a perfect New Years resolution :D
