Back to Cancer

So Abby is 14 week sor 3 months and a week.. wow. I cannot believe it... Lizzie is 4.. I really do have awesome kids. I mean they both have their moments but they smile and Lizzie is learning about empathy (which is really good haha) and the laughter in the house is so helpful.. especially right now.

  The reason for the "..."'s in this blog post is because I'm stressing (or freaking) about having made the appointments for my radioactive iodine stuff again.. This means I have to be scanned to make sure the blood level in my tissue is back to normal, then I swallow one or two pills that make me so radioactive (for a few days) that I could set up bomb alarms at federal buildings (anyone for a trip to the O'Brien building?). Also I cannot be near my kids and will be isolated at Albany Med for a few days..

  The good side.. I get to sleep whenever I want too. :-D

  The bad side.. I'm just plain scared.

  But at least the worst is over, my last pregnancy is over (yay for tied tubes) and csection is healed up, and school starts after the therapy is done so that will be great. I do not love the time graduate school takes me away from my kids, but I do love being in class.. And what I'm learning.. Also it will help me work in Schoharie County rather then in Albany hehe. Thinking long-term.

  So there it is.. Back to Cancer but thinking positively. I'm definitely uncertain but I can do this. I made it through being sick during pregnancy and having two surgeries last year in a row.. and another csection that frankly sucked haha. I just have to swallow a pill, possibly have nausea for a few days and dry mouth. Hopefully will no longer be stage 1 cancer anymore thereafter. Here's to hoping :-D
