Next steps

Next week is a big week, or maybe it won’t be at all. Somehow it has me very upset because on Monday I am having an MRI. I have had so many since July that I don’t even count. But, this one has me shaken to the core for some reason.

It could be just because I have had a long gap. I have prayed, thought positive, been thankful and tried all the things to re-focus on all the gifts I have been given. Those huge gifts are not small … my sweet family, YOUR friendship, time on this beautiful Earth. My list of gratefulness is very long. But, my Dad reminded me as he walked through cancer, we are always greedy, for more time, more of all of the things here on Earth and it is hard to find peace sometimes.

So I am trying to find peace for Monday. I am also hiding out at home to stay Covid-free so I can have all the testing. We will keep you all posted on what we find out and hopefully next steps whether they are treatments or something new and advanced we can try.

Thanks again for all the amazing, thoughtfulness. From precious cards, to flowers, to notes on our Peanut carryout – thank you Utah (I do LOVE the Peanut !) and ALL the thing YOU have DONE.

I am sad and struggling right now, but also so very blessed .Thank you for ALL you have done to help me find peace in the process, love you all!



Deuteronomy 31:6: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
