Update



Hello my friends! I have missed you all so very much and will be so happy when this is behind me and I can get back to sharing in all of the bloggy joy, once again.

 A quick update. Tomorrow I go to hospital to have a procedure that will place a 'Smit Sleeve in my cervix. It will allow for the high dose 'internal' radiation to be done starting the day after Christmas. This is such a Blessing as it is the earliest possible time during treatment that it can be done and the tumor needed to shrink down to a certain size and it did...yeah!

Thank you once again for all of your support of emails, special thoughts and the many continued prayers...I do feel them and they keep me going.

I was so hoping to be able to come and visit you all but I have had to give in the inevitable fatigue that is setting in. On my 'good' days, I have to get things done as needed.

My sweetie is up North most of the time on a big project at BP refinery and can't come down every weekend. He will be here for Christmas and to take me to my first 'internal' radiation which will be a bit uncomfortable, I hear, but I will be medicated, so that is good.

 I will update as I can.

Much love to you all,
Sherri

Sherri - I will be praying for you as you continue your treatment! Just enjoy being a "lurker" when you have the energy, otherwise, just rest and relax and concentrate on getting well! I will say a prayer for you as I light our candles by our Nativity Set tonight!
