We were able to get away for the weekend as a family and head to the beach. It was nice to have time to take a break from tests and decisions and just enjoy each other and the world around us. We know that we have a difficult road ahead, and this weekend was a time of refreshment for all.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
I am so humbled by love of friends and family. I know there is so much going on behind the scenes I don’t even know about…I am so tired.
My strong feels like it is running out faster. My emotions come in waves. That is probably adding to my tired.
It keeps hitting me that probably the reason I’ve been tired is cause of the cancer.. For so long!
I am so grateful the her2 was positive and brain MRI clear. The things I know now…Not much I guess really cause most of it is not making sense and my brain is reeling. I was really hoping to do a mastectomy and no chemo. To hear otherwise took my breath away…Chemo for 5 months?!?! What crazy world did I get dropped into?
This has been a special song to me recently.
Do take care of you.
I am realizing how ignorant I’ve been about health and taking care of my body…I have lots of thoughts to pass on. I don’t want anyone to go through this just because they were not caring for their body properly.
And no mammograms, okay? The more we’ve read and talked to people! They’re not good for you and not as sensitive in finding cancer as they’re made out to be!! An MRI, an ultra sound or a thermography scan are way better options, non invasive and low if any risks to your health. We are still learning about the thermography scan- thinking it may be the way to go for preventative, supposedly it picks up irregularities way early- years before mammogram or popular technology can pick it up.
Anyhow- that’s my mini health rant for today- rest and eat more greens!!
You are so very special and an inspiration and blessing to so many. You have been such a huge blessing to me and my family and I thank you for that. I feel blessed to know you and call you my friend. You and your sweet family are special to us and to the Lord. He loves you so much and I know that He, along with the many friends you have touched with your giving and serving spirit will be with you through this valley. We will be praying for you daily and helping in any way we possibly can. Please do not hesitate to let your needs be known and receive from the multitude of people that love and appreciate you… and want to help.
Praying for His peace to be poured over you and your family daily. Isaiah 26:3 – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Love and prayers,
Ron, Jennifer, Karl, Shane and Nolan Easterbrooks
