Will soon be leaving to walk in the American Cancer Society 24 hr. walk for cancer (no I'm not walking 24 hrs). Figure this is the least I can do considering my circumstances....we have a big team, the boys and several of their friends are walking too so it should be fun, yet eye opening for all.
What a wonderful thing it would be to be able to detect cancer at it's most minute form, then be able to irradicate it before it happens so people won't have to deal with what I'm going the saying go's "when the going gets tough the tough get going" we will be going now to do some walking!

Am continuing to feel better......Hope all of you have been getting your workouts in. Wrote an article for the Cancer survivor stories the Lawrenceburg Journal is doing, figured I could inspire some people who might be feeling down and out about their situation. Will also be participating with the boys and "Hoosier Buddies" in the American Cancer association walk which starts on Friday and ends on I'm not spending the night but figure the least I can do to beat cancer is walk some laps...maybe run quite a few on Sat morning for my workout......

my e-mail

Hope everyone is hanging in there....I've been doing my best, but I do have to say the combination of chemo, a cold, more chemo then (almost)bronciitis with a bad cough at night has really thrown me a 1-2 punch. This last week I have probably been more tired, than I have ever been sice this whole thing began...too tired to even write this blog....anyway, now on antibiotics (how any germs can live in my body I have no idea). I even missed a couple workouts because I needed to sleep......the whole rest thing is isn't in my nature....thinking I'm finally starting to get better.....

Hope everyone has enjoyed the nice weather! I've either come down with a touch of a cold or am suffering from some allergies....either way it sure does make one tired while on chemo....."rest" seems to be the bst medicine (with a little exercise that is!)

Feeling better every day just a little fatigue left from the chemo......did a bike ride out past North Dearborn Library today (1 hour 15 min round trip) had to take it a little easy still...hope you did something today!

Different parents will especially get a kick out of last night there I was trying to check my 4th graders adding and subtracting unlike fractions, and story problems....first of course he has to remind me how to do this, then I'm checking his answers and I'm asking him why he doesn't show his work, his answer,"well mom I do it all in my head it's easier that way. What's up with this...I can't even do this in my head, I have to write that moment I've decided that this is ALL the fault of the's affecting my brainpower, Right? Irregardless....that's my defense and I'm sticking to it....P.S. I made him go back and write out several anyway!

Am I worn out.....Chaperoned Alex's 4th grade class on a field trip to "Friendship" it was pretty good, kids seemed to have a good time...did this two days after chemo....and oh, I did wake up at 5:20 this morning, couldn't go back to sleep, so decided I may as well get up at 5:45 and do a workout before the day use wasting time laying in bed mad because I couldn't go back to was an easy workout though!
