An update to my update

I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments and keeping my in your prayers.
I had several people email me taking the time to see how I was doing and I appreciate it so much. I also had a few email me asking if they had missed something confused by my mentioning my oncologist.
In June 09 while my husband was deployed to Afghanistan I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I had surgery and found that the cancer had spread to both right and left pelvic lymphnodes. I had 5 rounds of chemotherapy, 40 rounds of external radiation and 5 rounds of internal radiation.
I have been in remission as of March 2010. The results of my latest scan showed no evidence of cancer, no enlarged lymphnodes, no bone issues. Just a collection of fluid where I had some cancer removed in my lymphnodes. I have lymphedema.in my right leg and have a problem with my leg draining fluid. My oncologist suggested I go back to physical therapy to get the fluid "moving"

I just wanted to keep y'all posted on what is going on. I've missed blogging and just needed a break.
I'll be back until next weekend when my kid's and I head to Houston to spend Christmas break with our family.

I finished painting the dresser in the entry, but haven't waxed or distressed it yet.

Here is a peak


The Mackenzie Childs candlesticks are a gift from my husband.
(I love them and I love you hubbykins)

I didn't pull out all of our Christmas decorations this year since we won't be here, but I did decorate my kitchen a little. I will share with y'all soon.

Oh Michelle, I haven't been a good blogger, so I didn't even know anything was going on. I am so glad you remain in remission.

Now, if I were closer, I would come over and distress and wax that dresser for you while you take care of that leg.
