just another day…

Today I was emotional. I’m not sure if it’s because I miss my husband, or other things…. but I am. Part of the day I felt bad for all the nice things people are doing for me, and how I’ll never be able to thank them or tell them enough how much I appreciate it. So, I felt bad.

My dad knew that John was gone to Chicago and decided to take vacation from work and spend it with me, mom, and the girls. It meant a lot:) It was such a nice gesture and shows what a good guy my dad is. Taking vacation to come to no where Rolla and not do much. It was sweet, and I love him for that. He is making this week a lot more fun:)

I’m attaching 2 youtube videos I made for my sister in law Claire. She needed them for a work thing. I did my best to tell my story, but then later thought I did a bad job. I looked at the videos and picked them apart. My face was splotchy, my teeth were weird, and overall I looked sick.

For the first time I looked at a video of a sick person….and that sick person was me:( I realized I do have cancer and it will take a toll on my body. It was just a lot to absorb at once.

My good note:) I miss my husband, so that means after almost 11 years of marriage this gal still has a thing for her man:)

    Hey. If Claire is doing a project for work, can I talk to her too?? Since we have the same triple negative and mine was further along than yours? ( it was in the lymph nodes).

    Thanks. And oh hey. It’s not the end of the world. Watch for my posts on Sunday. 😄😄

      It wasn’t for Claire, it was a client of hers. She big into women taking charge of their bodies, and she found out that I found a lump during a self exam at 32 and just wanted me to do a short video on it.

    Hi Sandi! Jennifer won a Facebook contest that my client was running a month ago. The contest asked people to submit their stories on “How I learned to love myself.” As you can imagine, she had a variety of stories submitted, with cancer one of many topics. The entries were then judged by a women authors all over the country. Now they are contacting each of the recipients and asking them to share more of their story. Jennifer was kind enough to create the above videos. I hope your treatments are going well. I’m sorry to hear that you are also suffering from Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Stay strong!
