I haven’t written on here in a while because I’ve been unsure what to say. I’ve also been a little bit down about my last Dr. visit. Chuck had planned on asking the Dr., “when can we say she’s cancer free”. But before he could ask she told us they hadn’t been treating all the cancer just the big stuff. That was quite a shocker. Ok God I know you have a plan but it gets confusing sometimes. Then she told me I needed to be on stronger pain medication. I’ve never been someone who takes medicine and have had strong feelings against it. So I guess I needed to learn something about this too. Because it seems to be helping it just has some side effects I’m not fond of.
I got really upset the day of the appointment but I’m much better now. Not having many Dr.’s appointments is helping me to feel better. I have one per month for the next 3 months. I will have an additional one per month when they start me on the new bone strengthener.
That’s another story…
A lady from the oncologist’s office called me before my appointment and told me my cost for the medication would be $366.54 every 28 days on my insurance. I told her I wasn’t on mine any more but on my husbands. She said she would check and call me back. I knew it would be even more on his and was quite upset. When shc called back she said it would be a little over $2000.00 on his. She said there was some kind of program that I would be eligible for through the drug company if I wasn’t on medicare or medicade. Thankfully I’m not. She said they give you a savings card so the first treatment is free and all the rest are $25.00. She said it would be a huge blessing for me. I told her yes it would and thank you for doing the research for me. I was so relieved but upset with myself for not trusting God to take care of it for me. He not only took care of it but in the same day so I’d stop stressing about it.
If I understand correctly, the bone strengthener can help fight the rest of the cancer by making my bones stronger and more able to fight. So that’s what I’m praying.

since I rang it before and ended up having to have more radiation. I rang it anyway. Let's hope I'm truly done with it. I don't know how much more my body can take. The first time I went through it and rang the bell I went and sat in my car and cried. I really don't know why. This time I just wanted to celebrate!
Yesterday was the first day I've eaten almost normal and this morning I'm up early regretting it. I've just been so hungry but I'm going to have to be careful. I don't want to be experiencing this again.
I'm so happy I don't have any Dr. appointments this week and only one the week after.
I hope this New Year brings a lot of positive changes for everyone!
