Halfway There!

I am halfway finished with my radiation!  Three weeks down, three weeks to go…

I would like to think that the first three weeks were more difficult than these next three will be.  That infection I had was no joke.  I have felt so poorly, but every day now I get a little bit stronger, and I am happy to report that the infection finally seems to be responding to the antibiotics!

I don’t think the doctors know for sure why this infection spiked so far after my surgery.  I am more than two months post-op, and the infection showed up on my non-radiated side, but directly at the site of the left mastectomy (and then spreading out from there).  At any rate, they continue to monitor me closely, I am continuing with antibiotics, and you can continue to pray for complete healing from this!


Here are some more of the pictures I promised to catch up on, with maybe a little back up story for each!

My little man!

Ella is a little bit dramatic. She has a "boo boo" on her toe and on her finger. She had a lot of tears this afternoon - as it turned out, some of the tears probably stemmed from an ear infection that had yet-to-be-diagnosed!

The next day, she came home from preschool and climbed to the couch. Here is Cadence trying to console her. A trip to the doctor a little later in the day showed an ear infection. Unfortunately, a trip to the drug store to get medicine for it was too much...Ella got sick all in Grandma Martha's van, and later all over Grandma. Fortunately, it proved to be a 12hr bug that the rest of us miraculously avoided!

As you can see, Ella was fine the next morning...even after a night on the couch with me so if she got sick I wouldn't wake Cadence cleaning up the crib/changing sheets/etc...


The next day…Groundhog Day:

Cadence's preschool creation on that day! She was excited to tell me what she learned about "shadows."

This picture makes me smile! 🙂

More to come later!
