Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to get you all a little update, in case you didn’t already know.  I started radiation treatments on Monday.  So much for done is done huh?

Met with my radiation oncologist and he gave it to me  pretty cut and dry.  He said there is a 50/50 shot that this damn cancer will return.  No matter what I do.  He said I am in the rare percentage of people that it came back a second time anyway. He also informed me that if it comes back a third time I am in for the fight of my life because I have been through both know treatments for it already.  Well, that was good news I thought – right?!?!?!? NO NOT AT ALL!!!  So I decided that even though it doesn’t increase my odds any, I couldn’t live with myself if it returned and I didn’t do radiation.  Can’t be any worse than anything I have already been through right? So 28 rounds, Monday – Friday hear I come!!  Kind of a peaceful 15 minutes, and my arm pit only feels like it got fried for a few minutes, nothing I can’t handle.

Also, for those of you who don’t follow my Facebook, I put on my big girl panties and got myself a tattoo!!  It is the coolest thing I have ever done!!  I kept it simple because I was scared and now I want in embellished a little.  It was so easy and hurt worse when he was done than it did getting it!!  There is a picture of it on  my Facebook page if you’re really curious!!

Are you ready for Christmas?  This year our giving tree was able to help 13 children have a Merry Christmas.  The outpouring of support was amazing to me!!  thank you to everyone that helped us with that project. Speaking of projects, we are in the process of planning our first ever “team” triathlon, aquathon, half marathon or 5k run or some combination of those.  I will keep you all up to date as the planning progresses.

Thanks again for your support –

Tammy
