Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Feeling her spirit

Yesterday was the second anniversary of my dear grandmother’s death. She was so incredibly special to me and I miss her immensely. Although, I am glad that she doesn’t have to go through this cancer with me, because she was such a worry wart, and I wouldn’t want her worrying about me all the time. However, I wish she was around for me to talk to. I am not a phone person…I really don’t like chatting on the telly. But she could call me every day if she wanted to, just to check to see how I was doing, and it wouldn’t annoy me in the least. I would look forward to her calls.

As I begin my poison this week, in my Slash/Poison/Burn strategy of attack, I’ll be thinking a lot of my Mom-mom, who went through chemo for stomach cancer. Because she lived in New Jersey, I wasn’t around for her treatment, but everyone told me that she approached it with courage and grace. She wore her wig proudly and always looked so well put together.

I hope I can endure my chemo with the same spirit, strength, and spunk as my Mom-mom.

You already have that spirit - perhaps even a double portion! Don't underestimate yourself - you and God make a majority in EVERY situation, and you've shown such strength and spirit from day ONE (even though you may not think so)!
