Getting ready for second quarter to start

LETS GO!! With three treatments down out of twelve, Im looking at this like a football game and splitting it into quarters- So I am ready to start the second quarter of play. Now this is after the first quarter where everyone was fired up and adrenaline was running high. This quarter is crucial as it relays on the momentum of the first but also the discipline and hunger to keep going and playing hard. I ask everyone out there to keep that fire lit. We had a strong and amazing start and now its time to step it up a notch and bury the opponent by the half...Never QUit

Much love

Get your yoga on

Whats up everyone. Hope all is well.... had another strong day as I had into the next treatment at the end of the week. We are just mowing these suckers down. Today was nice and relaxing as I was able to gym a little gym time and some yoga in as well. Today was not as intense but the class did the job- we were able to stretch and build strength as well. I feel good and strong today. Never Quit

Through Suffering comes Endurance

And through endurance character is built and then there is hope. Reading these words from the bible and hearing the service today at church reminded me that I should be thankful for the ups and downs of my life because it is the times that I am down that much character is built. Fighting cancer is like running a race. A long race that comes with times of being in the groove and striding it out and other times you get that little cramp in your side and just wanna pull over and stop. But there will be no stopping.

Let's Get Fit

Along the way on this journey, I've decided to take upon many challenges even amongst the battle of fighting cancer. Why? Because I got nothing else to do but read write and get better. So I challenge myself at other crazy things so I don't just sit around and worry.. Anyway there is no time to worry right? Why do we cry? We cry because we are happy, sad, mad, confused, hurt, surprised, depressed, angry, scared, in love and inspired. Well those are all the reasons that I might cry because of course I don't cry... yeah right...

Spa Day

Today I was treated to an incredible day of relaxation and pampering. I tell you this not to brag but to hopefully convince you to take some time out for yourself and get some one on one with you. I felt so revived after coming out of the spa. Of course the treatment was amazing but I used this time to get some one on one with God as well. Asking questions that I can not answer alone. Facing fears that I do not want to face alone. And just having a laugh or two.

Acceptance

There is a feeling of peace and comfort with me this morning. I will take it along with me with whatever I do today. A friend of mine told me that she was diagnosed with MS recently. She to had to find acceptance as to what has happened in her life and some of the changes that come along with it. Changes are not always fun or acceptable at the time but they do help us grow. Growing pains is what I call them and we all go through them.

A Friend in Need

Is what i was when i woke up today. I had a different entry to the blog this morning when i first woke up but then lost the signal and couldn't send it. By the time i was back on again my attitude had changed. This is because this morning I was angry and upset with my situation, and i was going to vent, I was a friend in need. My brother Will Hill came to my rescue and got me out of the funk that I was in, a literal state of depression. He didn't have to say anything, he just offered his company and a gazebo with the sounds of nature and a connection to God.

Thank YOU Bryan Edwards for making this web site and allowing me to keep up with friends and family

Hello all, Feeling much much better this time around. I think the exercise is helping to fight the fatigue. At least thats what the doctors and other survivors have been saying. So Ill keep up my little routine. Don't worry Arie I won't do too much.. love ya.   The thing is it gives me strength to do things and live as normal of a lifestyle as possible. Yesterday I was able to go to a friend's graduation from med school and to see the excitement and joy in her and her families face gave me a newfound joy and love for accomplishment and family partying... LOL...
