Spring Is In the Air!

Hello all! I apologize for not updating this more often. I feel bad. I know you want to know everything that is going on in my life. Well, to be quite honest now that I'm CANCER FREE it's pretty much a normal life. This past month (March) was crazy busy. Work was insanely nuts with Spring Training and awesome weather. We actually had our first 100 degree day last Friday. That was a little too early. Thankfully it has cooled down and hopefully we can go another month or so without it being so dang hot already!!

I haven't had any doctor's appointments since January. I had a scare with an abnormal pap smear that came back with abnormal cells that tested at high risk for cancer. So I had a colposcopy done and for the time being everything is fine. Whew. I will just have to go back every 6 months instead of yearly until I am "normal" again. Fine by me given my history.

I still haven't gotten my port taken out. I honestly just haven't had time. I will have to take a few days off work so I can heal and I just haven't been able to. No big deal at all. The thing really doesn't bother me. I went and got it flushed last week so that it can still be used. I will be getting scanned the end of this month and God willing it will come back clean and I'll be on the 4-6 month scan program now! I like that idea. :)

Uncle Sam was really good to me this year and I used my refund money to get hardwood floors. My amazing Uncle installed them for me and slaved at my house for 3 days. I LOVE them and I actually did help and learn! If I had the appropriate tools I could probably add hardwood floor installation to my resume.

April is already shaping up to be a busy month. My childhood friend is coming to visit with her son and Mom. Michelle and Alden will be staying at my house (my first real house guests ever!!!) and her Mom Sandy will be staying with my Mom. I'm taking Friday, Saturday and Sunday off to do things with them. I'm excited to actually have a full weekend off! What a treat. We have lots of things planned; a trip down south to the Border to visit Ry, the Culinary Festival, a night out on the town, a BBQ and a trip to the Wildlife zoo. It will be a jam packed yet fun 6 days! I'm looking forward to it.

My Mom just celebrated her 4th year of being cancer free. I only know what it feels like to cross that one year hurdle, I couldn't imagine what it feels like to be 4 years in remission! She's only ONE year away from being technically CURED! I like the sounds of that!!! GO MOM!

There is still a lot of cancer looming around people I know, mainly my Mom's friends so please take time to pray for a cure, pray that it goes away and stops affecting the ones we love. Thank you.

An update on Lil Jack! He's DONE with his hospitalization for all procedures/treatments. That is beyond exciting. He is pretty much done with his immunotherapy. He was recently on the local news about his story and this Thursday (the 7th) the Morton family will be on "The Today Show." They are actually in NYC right now filming for the show. How amazing is that? So please set your DVR to see their amazing story. :)

So that is a little update from me! I PROMISE I will get better at writing in my blog. I really do enjoy it...I just keep forgetting to post!! Hope you all are enjoying Spring!

Stay healthy and happy my friends...love you all!

Love, Erin
