Our young family battling stage IV breast cancer one day at a time
Breast Cancer Ribbon

Update

Things are going reasonably well.  My hair is back.  My headaches are, for the most part, under control.  My appetite is back.  My nausea is gone.  My two-year-olds are potty training.  My seven-year-old is almost done with first grade.  We are closing on our Paw Paw Drive house this week.  I go to U of M for an MRI of my brain, CT scan of abdomen and pelvis, labwork and bone scan next week.  As usual, I start to get nervous right around this time because I don’t know what the scans are going to show.  I hope for the best and prepare for the worst. 

Building our new house has been fun and a nice distraction from cancer life.  It’s coming along nicely. 

Speaking of cancer life, my cancer club met this week at Applebee’s.  It was nice to see everyone.  Well…almost everyone.  Heather and Amy couldn’t be there.  Kristi Rogaslke is not doing well and is at the end.  Please pray for her and her family.  http://www.briankristi.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your prayers for our family.  I still deal with fatigue, pain and the occasional migraine.  Oh and I can’t forget the lymphedema.  Blah. 

Max loves to do whatever the guys do.  Dusty’s washing the van.  Max is washing his car.  Too cute.

    Dear Lindy & Family – What a gift you all are to so many! Your spiritual and mental strength never cease to amaze me!

You are always on our hearts and in our thoughts and prayers, and especially now with your upcoming tests. We continue to storm heaven’s gates for a physical life for you that mirrors the tremendous, unstopable strength of your spiritual life. On our knees at Jesus’ feet 4 U…

    It’s good to see you in church. I think of you, Dusty, & the kids often. We will pray that the results of your scan shows “no new cancer”. May God give you peace as you wait.
    Enjoy your move to your new house.
    Blessings!
    The Yonker Family

    Thanks…

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!…
