We had a great Christmas break! It was very quiet and we enjoyed every moment of it. This week has also been very special as my Uncle from Canada and Aunt and Uncle from California came to visit us for a couple of days - we had such a wonderful time together!!
2011 has started off much differently than 2010 did. But don't all new years start off differently? I'm thankful for 2010 - I was cured of breast cancer. The journey began at the end of 2009 and will continue on for the rest of my life. I have been blessed to have the Lord carrying me through it all.

A few days before 2010 ended I noticed some soreness in my left hand and a little bit of swelling. I've been continuing to do my Manual Lymph Drainage along with the wrapping of my arm and wearing my compression sleeve when needed. The pain is still there and has travelled up my arm some. But I'm only noticing slight swelling in the top of my hand and in my fingers. I've been talking to the nurse at my Oncologist's office and they are thinking that it may be Lymphedema. I will be starting physical therapy with the Lymphedema Therapist next Wednesday.
I'm a little frustrated over the possibility of having Lymphedema but I have to keep reminding myself that it is NOT CANCER.
This new year is truly a blessing. We are able to laugh and enjoy the life we have been given. I do have several friends and family that are going through some tough things at this time. Whether it be an illness, loneliness, financial struggles, etc. Please remember that praying and leaning on God helps us get through those tougher times.
Speaking of prayer, would you please pray for Kelli's growth plate to heal properly and please pray that this Lymphedema leave my body.
God Bless you!!!
Love and Blessings from the top of my heart,
