Then, a few days later, it was Halloween/my birthday! I had lunch with Karley at school. She made me a cute hat to wear and gave me my birthday present. Later that evening we went trick-or-treating. She was a ninja. Shocker!
All in all it was the best birthday and Halloween I could ask for. I'm so thankful for all that I have, and each day I continue to have with my family and friends.
Lately I've had some back pain, in the area where the remaining tumor is located. I'm hoping it's just a side effect of radiation. It's effected my breathing a little for the past two days. I just can't seem to get that deep breath sometimes. It's very aggravating. I'll call the doc about it Monday to make sure it's normal.
My friend, Angel Hobby, is working on a fundraiser down here in St. Simons for me so I'll post details as they arise. She's been awesome, along with my church and ladies from bible study!
Karley is being baptized November 10th. We are super excited so expect another post around then.
Otherwise, my next MRI is November 25th. I'm glad we will be spending the whole week in Atlanta with our family and friends there. It will mark the one year anniversary of my diagnosis. I can't believe it's almost been a year now.
Please continue to remember the following additional people in your prayers: Reggie Kimbell, Marjorie Polk,Tim Gravitt, Shelley Miller, Sheila Hodges, Seanna Reannon New, Peggy Fogerty, Gretchen Mitchell Anderson, Dylan Rosier, Tori Tomalia, and James Robert Smith. They still all have their own battles.
Thank you for your continuous prayers for my family, friends, and me.
The support of my church, friends, and family has been truly amazing. I can't imagine getting this far without you all, but most importantly, without our Lord. I praise Him for the strength He gives me every day. He brought me to it, I know He can see me through it. I know I write this every time, but I genuinely mean it.
Hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween and has a great November (Lung Cancer Awareness Month!).
