Today has been a very tough day for me, we had to put our previous Evi to little fat pug who has been in our lives for 14 years, the inevitable occurred and it broke my heart into little pieces. This morning we honored her in her transition to dogie heaven and Dave, Alley and I accompanied and carried her until she went to her rest. I miss her terribly I have done nothing but cry for her all day and wish she was here even if just sitting around doing nothing. There is no replace...

Life has been good since my last post, trying to continue with normalcy as much as I can. We made a trip back home to Miami at the beginning of November and it was incredible. We got the family together and enjoyed my close friends that I had not seen for a while. Got back home to a great Thanksgiving even though very intimate it was wonderful, so much to be thankful for. Had a great time with Bambino, mainly hanging out, dinners, movies and some video games lol! In onl...

I wanted to wait a bit before I wrote to give a better update on things. I did go and see Dr. Lyman on October 6th and all my blood levels were back to normal and he was very positive of my visit. I was put on Tamoxifen and will be monitored between him and Dr. Scheri every3-4 months for the first two years. I have been doing very well with the pills and feel up and positive. I have fallen into my exercise routine and eating habits pretty well, so I am looking forward to the affirmative p...

The Tour of Duty

Posted by madrinaeg on 16 June, 2009 at 18:45 Comments comments (4)


As a military wife there are certain expectations of us, one of those is that we have to be supporters of the husbands/wives deployments. Well I have only been a military wife for a short period of time (3 years married, 4 years since we got together) and have been through 4 deployments, my opinion it's alot to work with.


To be honest, the first three deployments were not as stressful as this one year (tour of duty) especially because of my medical condition. ...

Nutrition Eat Eat Eat

Upon getting the news of my breast cancer, I decided that a crucial part of my recovery would come from a solid, strong nutritional program. There had been some people in my past that had suffered from other types of cancer and had done very well under a "Macrobiotic" regimen, I myself had followed it for a year. So I fly with my son to Miami to meet with a licensed Macrobiotic and get a plan in motion. I will be honest it meant a total change of eating habits, especially since it was differe...

The Hair

I still remember saying so many times, "well I really can't deal with losing large quantities of hair, so as soon as that start happening, I will get it all shaved off" today I should have one of you that I said this too beat me hard. One afternoon possibly a week and a half after my first chemo treatement I was sitting in my office and decided to touch my hair, and sure enough there it was that moment.........the hair was falling.


Looking at that day in retrospect I was t...

Our Christmas 08

Posted by madrinaeg on 15 May, 2009 at 18:40 Comments comments (2)

With Dave leaving for a year prior to Christmas, I was determined to have an early celebration for him regardless of the news about my health and that we did. We celebrated intimately and with hope that the upcoming Doctor appointments would share more light as to my condition

When I look back now, I felt so bad that once Dave left Jordan and I would be alone for the rest of the holiday season and this being his visit back home from College I wanted to make it as best as I could for hi...
