One Step Closer To Beating Cancer!!

You are probably wondering why there is a slideshow of our car wreck on this blog story today.  Your answer: Because that is how my Cancer Journey Began!

That Car wreck gave me Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Trauma Induced Breast Cancer from the seat belt!

As most of you know I have been battling cancer since 2010. I have gone thru treatments, surgeries, I deal with tons of side effects from the treatments and surgeries daily, and of course having Pet Scans Every 12 weeks since being diagnosed with Metz Cancer in 2017!

The worse side effects are the severe bone pain, chronic fatigue, neck pain and neck swelling! Oh, and I still can not hear out of my right ear!

(See the knot on the side of my neck– it has been that swollen since surgery in 2017 and refuses to go down. It even swells more sometimes which makes it hurt worse plus I don’t have good range of motion in my neck due to it)

 

I have battled years thru Surgeries, Physical Therapy, CT Scans, Pet Scans, Labs, Thoundsands of Doctor appointments, taking years of Chemotherapy, Radiation treatments, been given the wrong treatment, etc… I could go on and on. (As I am  sure a lot of cancer patients would understand) . 

I decided I didn’t want anyone else to go thru what I did, so I published my cancer journey. I have also placed information about cancer programs in the back of the book that will help cancer patients and their families.

Yesterday my husband took me to the oncologist to get my recent Pet scan results.   We sat in silence not knowing what to except. Good news, more bad news, etc…

I am so used to years of battling that i am ready for anything she has to say! 

Finally, the Doctor walks in, greets us and then slowly tells us and shows us the scan results! I can’t believe it I finally hear and see the word for the first time on my Pet Scan: No Evidence of Metabolically active tumor!

OMG!!! I am so freaking excited!! Remission? Maybe?? 

My oncologist says “No More Pet scans now unless there is something strange in my lab work (which would be in later) or if they find a lump or “something” on a physical examine.”

(Since I have six doctors, I still have examines every month! If there is any issue one of them is sure to find it! )

But I am so excited!! No more getting into that machine!

Let’s Talk!

Let’s talk!

As you know I have the Big C!  Well, let me tell you it really sucks!

I have been trying my hardest to show the world how strong of a woman I am and that this stupid deadly disease I have will not slow me down! Right?!

“Let go” by St. Johns for having Cancer so I began Carolyn’s Crafts (501c).. while still trying to take care of my family (and having to be place on SSI)

So, I begin my Day at 8am in a really good mood at the Oncologist Office!

 The Waiting!!!

 

 Then the Pet Scan!!

I was finally done at 11:30am and ready to head home!!

 

I am not really great due to the radioactive contrast and all I want to do is relax. Just like a lot of people I get on-line, look at my e-mails, Facebook  and then I looked at my WordPress site.

Now, I am mad. I have 389 comments and a lot of them are Rude Comments about my cancer!

I am glad that I have my site set up to where all my comments come to my SPAM folder instead of just letting them embed into my webpage!

I just want to say to all the people that wrote me those Rude comments!

1st: Yes, I do have Cancer! and if you even really bothered to even read my Book or look at my Video/Slide Show instead of just taking it upon yourself to judge me by calling me a: “Faker”, “Lier”,  “Pretender”, “Trying to Get Attention”, etc…You would actually know how long I have been fighting this Battle and then you would not have said these hateful, hurtful things to me!

2nd: If you want to know how I am doing, Just ask! Don’t assume. But since a lot of you have made stupid comments regarding this issue, here is your answer!

I am tired all the time!

I am always in pain (from head to toe) the medications the doctors have me take do not work really well.

I still have a hard time looking at myself in the mirror! I see how the cancer has changed my body and I hate it!! I have had tons of surgeries and the last ones where on my scalp, ear and neck!

 

3rd: Instead of asking where my contact information is…. Look for it…. it is there, I promise! Top of the web page! Also the Bottom of the web Page!

Lastly, Thank you to everyone that left the kind, beautiful comments.They made my day. Especially this one:

from:fosterstanton@bigstring.com

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

 

This comment made me smile, I can just imagine the little girl and her reaction.. I just wish there was a picture with the comment.

I hope everyone has a Beautiful Day!

Remember Losing is Not an Option!!
