Oh What a Feeling....

Port surgery was absolutely successful. Steri-strips are off, incision is healing! " Maxi" is one happy girl!

In other news, I just learned that a girl that I went to high school with was also diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Ironically, she lived on the next street over from me during our high school days. I can't help but think there was something in the water...

Her and her family have been in my thoughts everyday since I learned of her news. Cancer is a crazy thing. It knows no boundaries and I hate it.

In happier news, I can honestly say that I feel the best I have felt in two years! My energy has finally returned and I actually feel normal-ish. I have begun to book pampered chef parties again, and am getting on with my life. I have been exercising which gives me energy. Next I plan to work on cleaning up my diet...this steroid weight has to come off sometime, right? It surely isn't going away on its own. No time like the present!

Oh, and one more thing that has been a HUGE mood enhancer....IT'S SPRING!

(Happy Birthday, Lindsey!)

Hi Max. It's Trent's mom, Ruth. Not a day has gone by that you haven't been in our thoughts and prayers. Life in Texas is....bumpy at times. we are still trying to heal from everything. I didn't want you to think that you are forgotten, because your not. I am so proud of you and your fight, you are a wonderful women and inspiration to kids, especially to Trent.
