Healthy!

Latest monthly blood-work shows my CA level (Cancer Antigen marker) has gone down to 6.0, the lowest it has been in over a year! I’m up for my 6 month mammogram in September (high risk for Breast Cancer).

Ten things I’m grateful for:

  • Travel-California, Oregon, Washington, and Mexico. Saw great friends, ate great food, drank delicious wine and Mexican-made margaritas
  • Friends-all of you who have been there by my side during this 5 year journey
  • Fight club-this rock solid group of supporters
  • Family-the whole crew! Most especially my husband and children. You have seen the good, bad, and ugly of cancer.
  • Faith-the many prayers from all over the world!
  • My Bullet Journal– a place to track all of my healthy habits-I’m now two years without eating red meat
  • #midpacific Five years ago on August 6, 2012,  I had just started work and three days later was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. My school supported me through it all-the surgeries, the chemotherapy, the radiation, and recovery!
  • IB Coordinator position and USAFA liaison
  • Walking partners!
  • ENERGY!

I’m so excited for what is yet to come!

  1. I’m thankful for all those things too but at the top of my list would be “KYM” and her positive attitude. The picture is great too. This summer we all saw the change, especially in your energy level and we love it. Whatever you’re doing is working.
