Some of you may have noticed, but I deactivated our GoFund me Campaign tonight. We received enough donations from those of you who donated your hard earned money to us to help us get to North Carolina for my doctor's appointments, paid for our room and food, our car rental, our dog boarding, and medical expenses we had for the past month. I can't thank you enough for all you have done for us, and I am forever thankful that many of you were willing to donate. We are now receiving help from Care Coalition to help with the extra expenses associated with moving and they have come through for us as well. I will be making my move to North Carolina on Wednesday (permanently) and Jim will follow about two weeks later with all our belongings. Jim will be arriving with me to NC but we will have to come back to Vegas to take care of packing and shipping my car. For those of you wondering, yes we did find a house and we should be moving in on July 1st. We are going to be living in Southern Pines again.
Many of you have been keeping track of my journey, and I haven't written in some time because the pain of having cancer has reared its ugly head. I am in pain much of the time now, especially in the evening. UNC Cancer Center has found more in my breast tissue versus what they found in Las Vegas, and it is actually worse than we thought. The cancer has spread into the Sentinal Node in my lymph ducts, possibly my back, and they found another mass in the right breast roughly 0.5 cm in size. My cancer has grown to 2 cm now, so I guess you can say I am really ready for this thing to come out of me, and chemotherapy to get rid of what has spread.
I am a bit tired tonight, so I will end it here. I am looking forward to North Carolina, and hopefully I can get a workout in tomorrow (this week has been ROUGH). I have been a quite a bit of pain so I think I need a good workout.
Thank you all for everything you have done to help us. I hope I can return the favor, and I am trying in some ways to do so.
Much love to all of you!
