First day of my new life

I woke up feeling great. I had a good night rest. I feel really good about today. I am excited to get started on beating this cancers ass! Today we do a chest CT, possibly drain the fluids around my lung, and shortly after we start chemo. I have high expectations this chemo is going to work. I feel like it is going to work. I'll write as soon as I'm done.

Sky,
I heard about your blog from John and Denise Jackson. Denise is my older sister. I am praying for you and your whole family. I experienced a cancer recovery miracle with a young friend of mine years ago. He mastered meditation and was the epitome of positive thought. I know that it is possible to beat this thing and I know that you have it with in your power to do so.
I will send positive energy your way every day.

amanda said...

I received this in an email and thought of you!!

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Carly said...
