Cancer Free and 15 yr anniversary! :)

Good morning! I am sorry it has been so long since I did an update! So much has gone on with me this month! January started out pretty bad but finished off pretty good!
I have been working a lot at Kohl’s had 2 court dates (with my ex for child support). I won! And this past month I have been working on our taxes. Got them done, filed for rapid refund, but was denied. A lot of people we know were too. Don’t know what is up with that, but they said it was going to take 5-10 business days to process. So we are waiting on that still. Then my Grandmother passed away Jan 8 so I had a wake and funeral to go to. The 15th I had my cancer re-staging and pet scan. Then on the 16th my lil chi had puppies! Yesterday was my blood work and test results….. CANCER FREE! Then to top it off it was our 15 yr anniversary! Woo hoo! So things are looking up! Crossing my fingers!
I have a facebook if you would like me as a friend, here is my link:

Grandmother passed away today 1-08-09

Well this year has already been sucky! Sorry! I just can't believe my Grandmother passed away! It started this morning at 4am. I got a call from my niece saying that grandma had died. I was so disoriented I couldn't even think straight. Then sat up in bed and realized what was going on. My grandmother had took care of her mom for 15 years as she had alzheimers...Because of the stress and overload, she developed Sarcoidosis. It caused her body to attack itself...There is no cure for it but it is treatable....It attacks the lymph nodes...It has attacked her lungs...she was on oxygen 24/7 and taking steroids. They think she had a heart attack. She was my step grandmother, but the only one I had known as my real grandmother passed away before I was born. She was 20yrs younger than my grandfather, who has been battling cancer for the past couple of years. So it was a shock to find out she passed before him. She was more like a 2nd mom to me than a grandmother. I am still in shock. Just yesterday, I was talking to a co-worker about all the junk going on with me this month and asked her "how much more could I take?" Then this happens. I don't think I will ask again. I have my court case Monday with my ex and then the 15 I have my cancer restaging. This will be my 2nd 3 month check up.
I don't know how much more bad news I can take this year.
Thanks for reading. (((HUGZ)))
