So I guess I'll start by fill in where I left off, in a short recap. Last October I was finishing my last chemo treatment and celebrating my 1st Breast Cancer Awareness month (my second birthday month as I call it) well a full year later, I'm glad to inform you that I am now CANCER FREE :), my GOD is an amazing God!! :) After my last chemo I still had treatments of herceptin every 3 weeks right up until this past june (2012).
Really easy treatments. After those treatments were done, I no longer really needed my port (the device that I initially got surgically placed into my chest to get my treatments). My doctor told me to keep it ''Just in case'', I told him that there will be no "Just in case" LOL. I'm claiming it, my cancer is not coming back!! So on Aug 16th I got my port removed. It was an amazing feeling. Though my journey is far from over, the removal was just an end to one the many chapters in my life.
So long story short, I'm NOW living my life and not letting my life live me. YES I'm still working 3 jobs and have now added the task of pursuing my doctorate, but the difference is, I'm not all over the place. I'm not trying to do this all alone and make my own path, I'm really listening to God and allowing him to work through me which makes life so much easier. I PROMISE, you should try it. It's the greatest feeling letting him do the work.
God also blessed me with a new job as a Physical Therapy Tech at a senior living home. This is something that I really wanted to do so that I would be able to work in the field that I'm studying and get experience at the same time. I had been praying about it and out of the blue someone that I had met along my journey contacted me a few weeks before school started and asked if I wanted the position. Everything is in his plan for me and to know that with my WHOLE heart is the greatest feeling ever.
I also just celebrated my 32nd birthday on September 16th. I'm gonna say it again....GOD IS SO GOOD! Through this journey, I never once thought that I would die from cancer but I'm just so grateful to be able to see another year. He loves me that much!!
So now since we're done with a small recap of my past year, lets get to what's next. Breast Cancer Awareness month starts tomorrow, so this is the first of many of my new blog post to come. The past year has been about me getting back to life and living it and in doing so I must remain faithful to God as he has been to me and he's telling me to start up this blog again. I shall listen. Until next time....
