Number 6 done!


Chemo number six went well.  In fact right after I got home I went on a 3 mile walk with Linda and our dogs.  It's the best I've felt right after chemo.

After I had my blood drawn I met with Ideen who whisped me away into a quiet dark room to perform an EKG on me.  I lay there for about 15 minutes, while I was being monitored.  It was very relaxing.  I had my clinging cross with me and Ideen saw it and told me she has one also.  That was a comfort to know.

I then turned my lovely $2000 study watch back in and off I went to fill out a 20 page questionnaire for the Yoga study.  I still don't know which group I'm in -- I should know by Monday -- so please continue to pray for either of the 2 Yoga groups.  I told Kayla and Ideen about y'all praying and they felt the pressure being on.  I let them know about how I had y'all pray that I get the RAD001 -- the study drug.  See my Army we have been specific with our requests.  We have seen so many prayers answered already.

I went upstairs to the eighth floor to check in for my treatment.  Just a little after I got up there my friend Mondie came up to see me -- she had an appointment with her surgeon for post op.  She's healing well.  And looks great!

Then Jim came up there and got to meet Mondie too.  Julia's back too - she's the research nurse on the study (she just came back to work, she had surgery about 6 weeks ago).  Julia said my blood counts all look wonderful.   It was great to see Julia again.  I did miss seeing Debbie.

It wasn't much longer and I was called back for my chemo treatment.  I had the sweetest nurse.  Mou (pronounced moo) was her name.  She was the cutest -- she spent a lot of time talking with Jim and I.


The whole chemo process takes about 2 hours from start to finish.  I felt really, really great afterwards.

I've started to do some Yoga on my own in the morning.  I like it!  I'm also trying to go on a walk every day.  Please pray that I continue to feel well that I can walk every day.

A big decision has been made by Jakob.  He has decided to go back to school.  Please pray for him and me as we make this transition.  If all goes well he should be back at school by Wednesday.  I have a few things I need to get together for him.  Jakob is very excited and we are excited for him!

I'm enjoying this beautiful sunshine we are having here in Texas.  I hope y'all are making the best of your weekend too!

Love you all!

Love and Blessings from the top of my heart,

Thank you!!

I didn't sleep well last night.  I thought I may be coming down with a sinus infection so I made an appointment with my family doctor this morning.  Just allergies.  No sinus infection.  It's irony that I have cancer but my allergies are what are making me feel bad.  

I got to catch up with some great friends over lunch today.  Plus I got to have some yummy Chinese food.  

Just got a call from MDA about the Yoga/sleep study I'm participating in.  Idene will be collecting the study watch from me tomorrow after my bloodwork.  She also informed me that I am required to have an EKG to participate in the study so I'll be doing that tomorrow as well.  After my EKG all my info goes into a computer, I once again will be randomized by the computer. Please pray that I get selected to be in the Tibetan Yoga group or the stretching Yoga group.  I should find out which group by Monday.  I'll let y'all know.

So tomorrow I have a blood draw at 8:30, meeting with Idene and an EKG at 9:30 and chemo at 11. Jim will be by my side for my treatment tomorrow.  I love the support he continues to give me.  Please continue to pray that my blood count is good and that my chemo goes smoothly.  

I am humbled by all your messages.  It is such a joy for me to report all my happenings to you.  Y'all are truly a blessing!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Love and Blessings from the top of my heart,

A note

Dear Cancer,

I wanted to thank you for entering my life.  Without you I wouldn't know how many people really love me and my family.  You have empowered me to do things I could never imagine.  I know that you actually probably entered my life to try to break me down, not a chance!  Through the many prayers of my Army of Prayer Warriors and my own we will continue to conquer you.  One thing I know for sure is that God has the most power of all and He will not let you win.  Cancer, you are a disease, God is Life!

My children too have learned what cancer cannot cannot destroy this family.  Jakob, Kelli and Joey see their parents sticking to the vows they promised almost 16 years ago "in sickness and in health". Yup "in sickness and in health" - that's a vow my Jimmy and I take very seriously.  This is just a temporary roadblock -- but doesn't even feel like a roadblock.

You may think you won because you kinda came at an inconvenient time in our lives.  Moving to Australia was a dream that we had but that doesn't mean we stopped dreaming.  Our dreams do change after all.  Now we just know that Kingwood, Texas is exactly where God needs for us to be.

Through this journey, Cancer, I have met so many wonderful doctors, nurses & new friends.  Oh and by the way, I'm also being cared for at one of the number one Cancer facilities in the world, MD Anderson.

Cancer, thank you for giving me a new found respect for my faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  I know that I will live eternally with Him.  He is the Great Physician.  He has won, you haven't!!

After only 3 treatments, you had already shrunk by 50%.  So Cancer I want to tell you -- no matter how big you think you are -- you are not big, God is bigger!!

Not only do we have our boxing gloves on but we have our hands lifted in prayer.

Hats & Numero Cinco!!

Howdy Army!

Thank you once again for all your heartfelt messages whether it be through the Caringbridge guestbook, blog guestbook, comments, emails, texts, facebook, voicemails, all of them are so greatly appreciated!!!  I have been blessed by such a strong army.  Your prayers are overflowing and for that I thank you too!!

My hat party was so much fun!  The company was great and the food was wonderful!  I got so many cute hats and scarves, I'll be having fun wearing everything.  My room is filled with giftbags of hats and scarves.  Thank you!!

I like how one of my friends gave today's chemo number 5 the term "Numero Cinco" and another friend called it "Mambo Number 5".  Either one of those is a fun name and I'm happy to say that we have completed "Mambo Number 5".

Linda and I headed out to MDA this morning and got there about 8:30 and went straight to the lab for my bloodsucking.  Lina drew my blood once again.  She's so good.  Linda and I also met a very sweet couple Carolann and her husband -- they too are on a journey with breast cancer -- they have 4 young children, please pray for that family.  Today was Carolann's last chemo -- she was glowing with excitement!

I chose to be bold and wear a hat today and not one of my wigs.  I figured my wig would get all matted while I was laying down getting my chemo.  While I met with my nurse Debbie I took off my hat to show her my shaven head -- I never put my hat back on.  I felt good!  I had nothing to hide behind and it was okay.

I got all settled in my room and the needle was put in my port by my nurse Liselle -- she was awesome I didn't even feel the needle go in.  Praise God for that!!  Once I was settled, Linda and Jim went and grabbed some lunch at the cafeteria.  I get lunch served to me in my room.  All my blood counts & numbers look great (the liver function test will be rerun in 2 weeks).

I had a great day today -- the day seemed to go quickly we got home earlier than normal so I was able to take a nice nap.

The kids are still getting used to my shaven head -- we talk about how me not having hair means the chemo is working and they say "exactly".

I am struggling with tiredness this week.  I ask that you please pray about that. While Jim & Linda were at lunch a lady named Kayla came into to talk to me about participating in another study.  This study is "Effects of Tibetan Yoga on Fatigue and Sleep in Cancer".  I will find out which group I will participate in -- either the breathing yoga, stretch yoga or in the control group (no yoga).  It is a computer randomized selection -- please pray for either the breathing yoga group or stretch yoga group.
I also still have the "RAD" rash - your prayers are working because it's not as itchy as it was.

Please pray for our family to stay healthy-- there seems to be a lot of bacterial & viral infections going around and so far we have been clear of those and I pray that we stay that way.

I love you all and ask that God continue to bless all of you!!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

We had a great weekend.  Mom & Dad (Jim's parents) came to visit us from Kansas.  It was so nice to have time with them.  I love my Mom & Dad!!

Well we did it!  Jim shaved my head tonight.  My hair was falling out in droves.  Kelli cut some first, then Jakob and then Jim shaved my hair down to a number 3.  Joey only came and watched.  It was a little scary because I really had no idea what I'd look like.  I like it!  No more hiding behind my hair.  I feel bold!  Ephesians 3:12 says, "Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence."

God still knows the number of hairs on my head.  He knows everything about me and still loves me so.

Now that I have a little extra time on my hands (because I won't be blow drying my hair for 30 minutes everyday), I've decided I'm going to use that time to pray and mediate on the blessed life I live.

Thank you all for being so supportive and for continuing to pray for us on this journey.

I love you!!!

Love from the top of my heart,

I have some amazingly, incredible news to share with you!

Let me say first that I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith in him is being talked about all over the world. Romans 1:8 (NLT).

We're home from my 4th chemo treatment -- all went really well today.  

I met a new friend today while waiting in the lab to have my blood drawn.  A beautiful woman who also has breast cancer -- Mondie is her name, please pray for her.   

My appointment with my nurse Debbie was great and my appointment with Dr. Green was also remarkable!!  Dr. Green couldn't feel my tumor at first until I lay down -- then she felt it, it has shrunk by 50% -- it is now less than a centimeter.  AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE!!!  I had told her I had trouble finding it when I was feeling for it last Saturday.  

So you see how amazing prayer is right?  The Bible says in Philippians 4:6, Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 

Your faithfulness in your prayers has brought us here.  I cannot THANK YOU enough!!  

My chemo dose did have to be lowered by 25% because my liver function is 400% above normal.  The liver function test is not normally run for my chemo (Taxol) regimen but because I'm in the RAD001 study it is a requirement to check it.  And Dr. Green told me not to worry about it. Please pray that my numbers come back down in the normal range.  The test will be run again in 3 weeks.  

Jim and I are so filled with joy -- it may be hard to fall asleep tonight.  

My treatment was so much more peaceful this week than last.  I had a really cute and sweet nurse by the name of Ashleigh.  No loud and obnoxious neighbors today.  

Oh yeah I went and picked up a wig today.  Monica at the wig shop is so helpful.  My hair is still slowly falling out.  It's gonna be okay -- I'll have great hair for the next few months.  There are some gorgeous wigs out there.  

I love you all so much!  I am so thankful for this Army of Prayer Warriors I have.

God Bless you all!!

Love & Blessing from the top of my heart,


P.S.  The "TODAY SHOW" ran a story this morning about a reporter who has the same type of breast cancer I have.  Triple Negative Breast Cancer.  Check it out, read her story and watch the video

Busy day

Hey!  I wanted to write a little this evening.

Tomorrow is another busy day for me at MDA.  I have the regular blood draw, an appointment with Dr. Green and then chemotherapy at 4 pm.  Please pray for another successful treatment.

Pray for safe travels too as we are supposed to have some more wet & cold weather here in Houston.  Jim is going to meet me at MDA after his morning meetings.  What a blessing it is for him to have people so supportive at work.  We really can't complain at all.

I've been drinking lots of water -- that seems to help with the bloodsucking.  It's so nice to not have to wear my brace anymore -- I went on a brisk walk this morning.

Thanks for all the compliments on the short hairdo.  It was easy to fix this morning and it didn't even get messed up when I took my afternoon rest.

I'll be reporting back to you on Friday about tomorrow's treatment.

Oh yeah -- I'm excited!  We have special visitors coming from Kansas this weekend -- Mom and Dad!!

Love you bunches!!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

Hair today, gone today

My hair has really started thinning out.  I've decided to have some fun with it -- my beautiful friend and hairdresser, Tracy came over to give me a new 'do.  I love it!!  She did a wonderful job.  Thank you Tracy!

Even Jim likes it!  That's a huge relief for me.  Jim's my hair critic.  Jakob, Kelli and Joey like it too!!

I've also gotten this rash over my chest and shoulders -- please pray for that to go away.  It's really not too miserable though.

I had a very enjoyable, productive day!

Thanks again for your lifting of hands!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,  Moni

The Caregiver

                                                                           (my caregiver, Jim)
Last night Joey was laying in bed cuddling with me.  We started talking about the prayer he says for me. He told me he wasn't very good at praying, he said he says the same thing every time.  This is Joey's prayer, "Dear Lord, thank you for this day.  Please help my Mom heal and the doctors take care of her.  Thank you for dying on the cross.  Amen."  He brought tears to my eyes.  I started feeling guilty about some of the things I won't be able to do for my children this year.  Meeting them for lunch at school is something I have taken for granted and now I won't be able to go for a while.

I was trying to explain to Jim how I feel.  I told him I feel like a disappointment -- he is always having to take care of me now.  That's supposed to be my job.  Now Jim is the caregiver, even Jakob, Kelli and Joey are the caregivers.  Jim told me not to feel like a disappointment -- that he likes taking care of me.  Guess what our devotion was entitled last night, "In Sickness and in Health".  God's timing is so perfect, ALWAYS!

Here is a Bible verse from last night's devotion, the Amplified translation:
     Ephesians 5:33 However, let each man of you [without exception] love his wife as [being in a sense] his very own self; and let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband [that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly]

Please remember that every day we have together is a blessing and should be lived joyfully!

I love you!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

From Friday to Sunday

Howdy!  Well I told you that my surgery went well.  I now have a power port.  That means no more poking for IV's.  

I've been tired this weekend.  But we had an amazing weekend.  My friends, Lisa and Chrissy came with their daughters to visit us.  Lisa and Chrissy got to meet some of my good friends here in Kingwood.  It is so great to be loved by so many!!  

Let me go back to Friday.  Jim & I got to MDA at 10 am.  Right on time for check-in.  On my way to the hospital I realized I forgot my blankie, my sweet friend Danielle brought it up to me.  Jim was given a pager, he would be notified when I was out of surgery.  We didn't wait long before we went back to the pre-op area.  I changed into my lovely hospital gown.  Once again I was given a great nurse, Veronica.  Another nurse came in to do my IV, his name was Steve.  He got the IV in after 2 tries (better than 4).  The amazing Dr. Brown came in to meet with Jim and I and asked if we had any questions for him.  What an incredibly laid back, nice man.  I knew I was in good hands.  He marked where the port would go and said he'd see me in surgery.  Then I met Dr. Kowolski, the Anesthesiologist and her nurse Karen.  Time for me to give Jim a kiss and see him later.  

The medicine was given to me and about 2 hours later I was waking up in post-op, and saw my handsome husband.   No complications, The Great Physician took care of me as did all the staff at MDA.  Do you know how blessed I feel to be in such good hands everytime I go up to MDA?  

Yvette was my post-op nurse.  She was so good.  She kept me out of pain.  Thanks Yvette!!  You rock!! 

At about 4 pm we headed on upstairs to chemotherapy.  Anthony was the man that rolled me upstairs in my wheelchair.  I tell you I feel like a princess.  The way everyone takes care of me.  The royal treatment!

At 4:30 I put my chemo hat and blankie on and started treatment.  This chemo treatment wasn't as relaxing as the other 2 had been.  I had this lady in the curtain beside me who was so loud talking to her friend and then when her friend left she talked even louder to her loud TV.  

My friend Deana was across the hall from me getting her treatment.  When she was done she came over to see me and introduce me to her husband Shawn.  It's so neat to have all these new special people brought into my life.  Hopefully Deana and I will get to be chemo buddies.  Her treatment is a little different than mine.  Right now she is going every 3 weeks and I'm going every week but then we'll be switching.  Please continue to pray for Deana and her family.  

After chemo, we picked Jakob up from his friend's house.  Joey and Kelli were spending the night at their friends' homes.  We got home and went to bed.  It was a long, successful day.

Yesterday we were given a bed and a mattress and boxspring for our guestroom.  Thank you!!!!

My hair started falling out yesterday, just a little.  I'm not scared.  I know that God knows the number of hairs on my head, one day they will be back.  

I thank you so much for lifting your hands in prayer for me.  Life is good, it's great!  Thank you!! 

The meals that we are receiving have been absolutely delicious.  Thank you for your cards, messages, phone calls, voicemails, cookies, texts, emails....

I am an abudantly blessed woman!

I love you!

  • THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2010 8:44 PM, CST
    Another day at MDA.  It was good!  Jim & I did so much laughing!!! Laughter is definitely great medicine!

    The day started out with my pre-op port placement appointment. We actually had a class with another family, Deana & her Dad. We were given information on the power port and watched a video explaining the procedure. Please pray for Deana & her family, she is also on a journey with breast cancer.  She has 2 little girls, 8 & 4. Deana is having her port inserted tomorrow as well.

    Judy, our nurse in Dr. Brown's office today was wonderful.  She had such a friendly personality!  Then we met with Kimberly the Physician's Assistant that works with Dr. Brown.  She'll be there for the surgery tomorrow too.  Didn't get to meet with Dr. Brown today but heard a lot of amazing things about him.  Dr. Brown has inserted 5000 over his career and has been doing this since about 1978.  He is the only Dr. at MD Anderson that inserts these special types of ports.

    After that we headed on down to the main building to meet with the Anesthesiologist, Dr. Andrabi.  He won't be there during my surgery one of the other Anesthesiologists will be.  That was a painless appointment. Nice doc!

    Next we were off to have my blood drawn, my favorite part.  I was pretty bold today and requested Lina to draw my blood.  It was cool, I picked the vein that I thought Lina would be sucking my blood from.  That's the one she used.  And I felt nothing today.  Good job Lina!!!

    That was our day at MD Anderson.  It was good and productive.  

    My surgery check-in time is at 10 am tomorrow.  My surgery will last about 45 minutes to one hour and then recovery is 1 to 2 hours. Once I am out of recovery I will then go for my chemotherapy treatment.   

    I appreciate y'all continuing to pray for me and my family. Please pray for all the people that I have mentioned in today's post as well. 

    Love & Blessings from the top of my heart to you all,


    P.S.  I'm starting to blog also at (I may be switching completely, but I'll let you know).  God Bless!!

February 3, 2010

This is being written in "imaginary pink".  I'm sorry to those of you that have had trouble reading the "pink".  

I'm still feeling great!  The only thing that I can really complain about is a few canker sores.  Please pray about those canker sores to leave me alone. Mouth sores are not fun, as I'm sure all of y'all know.  

Jim & I are heading to MD Anderson in the morning.  I have all my pre-op port placement appointments.  I will be asking for some meds for my mouth.  I've been drinking gallons of water to help my veins for the bloodsucking.  

I'm not sure what time my port placement appointment is on Friday but I'll let you know.  I'd appreciate prayers for the surgery.  I also am having my chemo treatment Friday.  

I received some awesome news today -- my friend's sister found out today that she doesn't have cancer.  It was thought that she had cervical cancer.  Praise God for such a fantastic outcome!!

I love you all!  And thank you once again for all you do for me and my family!!  I have the greatest family & friends.  I love life!!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

Good Morning to my Army of Prayer Warriors!!

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm feeling great after my second chemo treatment.  I would like to thank you all for your consistent prayers.  I see miracles everyday and I hope you are seeing miracles too!  

Life can become overwhelming at times but as long as we trust in the Lord we know that He can handle all of that "stuff" for us.  

This battle is not my own battle, but God's battle.  He is in control.  I have such an amazing peaceful feeling and I wanted to share that with you.  

Now go and be bold!!!  Do not waver in your faith!!

Love you!!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

  • FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2010 8:43 PM, CST
    Two down -- 14 to go!!  My chemotherapy went well today.  I got stuck by Gladys once for my blood work and once by Sara for my IV placement.   And Cherry was my nurse.  I fell asleep at one point during chemo -- Jim was at my side and when I woke up Linda was sitting in his seat!!  What a blessing that was today!  I feel really good -- just very tired.  

    Today we also got to meet with a very sweet nutritionist by the name of Danielle.  She listened and gave me so much good information to help me with the nutritional "medicine" of getting healthy.  It really is neat to see how the Dr.'s and nutritionists work together ensuring full healing.  

    I also met with Kimberly, one of my research nurses.  We talked about how I've been feeling and went over my daily diary of any symptoms I'm having.  Mostly just fatigue those 2 days.  

    Last night, my daily devotional was entitled "The Unwrapped Gift" - it talks about how God equips us each with special talents and gifts to be used to glorify Him.  I see the gift and talents in all of you.  People are so good and want to help in our time of need.  I have received, messages, prayers, texts, cards, meals, gifts, phone calls, hugs, Bible verses.   Thank you for using your gifts and talents for God's glory!

    I also thank you for your prayers -- we had yet another successful dose of chemo.  I feel incredibly strong and positive -- you all have something to do with that.  And of course without a doubt I cannot forget to thank my Awesome God!!  Our God is an awesome God -- He reigns!!!

    Love you!!


    Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

    P.S.  Thanks to those who help with our kiddos too!!! 

January 28, 2010


Did you know that pink is the new black?  Hahaha!  Pink is also my favourite colour.  Pink is also the Breast Cancer Awareness colour. So I'm writing in pink today.

I got some great news yesterday -- I don't have to wear the brace on my leg anymore.  Dr. Muscat said I can walk, just no running.  I asked him if I could walk fast and he said yes, just no running.  I'm so happy!  I've already gone on two 3 mile walks. Hallelujah!

I got some more good news today -- my port insertion appointment is scheduled for next Friday.  No more IV's in my veins after tomorrow.  Deborah from Dr. Brown's office at MDA called me today to let me know and to answer any questions I have.  What a nice lady! Please praise God for that upcoming appointment.  

I have my blood work appointment at 9 tomorrow morning and then chemo is scheduled for noon.  Please pray that this treatment goes smoothly just like last week.  

Jakob went to the Dr. yesterday -- he's suffering from allergies. We were happy to know that he doesn't have anything contagious but please pray for this "allergy-suffering" family.  

I received a package from a friend of mine in Germany today and here is the Bible verse that was written on the card,

 "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS."

I find rest in Jesus -- thank you all for your messages encouraging me to rest.

I give thanks for all of you!!!

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,

Good Morning Army!!

I'm not generally a complainer but wow this exhaustion is something else.  I kinda feel wimpy and have a hard time believing that this tired feeling is from the chemo.  My natural tendency is to blow it off -- but I can't.  Jim says I need to stay out of the ditch. Once I get in the ditch it's hard to get back on the road.  Please pray for this to pass quickly.

Other than being tired I feel really great!!!  It's is such a blessing to be on the road to healing.  

I am thankful to our AWESOME LORD for all the people he has brought into my life because of this journey.   

Pray also for our family to stay healthy - we may have a sick kiddo.  

I have a couple of appointments today -- I will be smiling because of all the love I have been given!!!

Love & blessings from the top of my heart,

MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2010 5:34 PM, CST
Biopsy #8 was a success after 2 passes.  Which I guess technically means I had biopsy #8 & #9 today.  Oh well.  Today was the quickest day yet for me at MD Anderson.  

I got to see some familiar faces today.  Flavia was the ultrasound tech again.  Dr. Candalaria performed the biopsy and of course Debbie my research nurse was in there with me.  

I've been feeling really well.  It's really hard to believe that I started chemotherapy 2 days ago.  

Last night we did our family pictures. We normally do our pictures in Kansas over Thanksgiving but thought we would do them on the beach in Australia once we moved.  Well that's not in the plan so we had fun taking pictures last night.

Kids had a good day at school today.  I am so thankful for my friends and teachers that care for our children.  God Bless You All!!

I am just so humbled by all your guestbook messages.  I read them all the time -- y'all are such wonderful encouragers.  Thank you!!

I have an appointment with the orthopedist on Wednesday about my fractured tibia -- please pray that he says I can go without my brace and that I can start using my leg again.  Then I have a nutritionist consult at MDA in the afternoon.  

Friday is my scheduled bloodwork and chemo day.
I will be going in for my pre-port assessment on February 4th and having my port put in on the 5th.  I will only be having one more chemo with IV.  Yay!!!

Just wanted to give you a little update.  

Hope y'all are all doing great!  

Love & Blessings from the top of my heart,
