Good morning everyone!!  Wow....what a night I had last night!  I will tell you about it but first I want to tell you about this picture in case you were wondering and missed yesterdays post.  My friend Peggy double dogged dared me to jump into the water fountain outside my Drs. office after I was told that I was in remission and cancer free.  I was also suppose to "happy dance".  So here you go Peggy.....I hiked my dress up, jumped in and am dancing!  So much fun!


Fountain Dance
Now for last night.  I was feeling absolutely fine until about 10:00.  I was already in bed reading and the stomach pain hit hard.  This happened to me last week after treatment too but I just rode it out and it went away.  This time it was worse.  I didn't know if it was my gall bladder or what.  I tried to ride this one out too but my body wasn't having any of it.  So Mike took me to the emergency room and they ran a lot of tests and ruled out lots of things.  The ER Doc thinks it's the chemo.  So everything will be faxed to my oncologist today to see if he can figure out what is going on.  As soon as we know anything we will pass the news on.

On to more EXCITING news.......WoooooooHoooooooo I am cancer free!!!!!  :) :) :) :) :)  I can't stop smiling!!  I even started dancing again this morning! I think I was praising God in my sleep!!   I only have two more treatments left and then I am done completely with all of this!!!  The end is finally in sight.  Thank you all so much for the tremendous support, encouragement and prayers that you have said for me.  I could not of done this with out you!  Thanks for all of the wonderful comments on this blog, all the text messages, facebook messages, e-mails and phone calls to me yesterday.  It was great!

Thank you so much Terrie Olstowski for making dinner for us last night!  It was so good!  Thank you also for the book and gift!  I already made the reservation!

I took Leslie to the emergency room last night around 11:00 with severe stomach pains.  They ran a bunch of tests and ruled anything major out.  It could be the chemo.  Her oncologist will get all the reports this morning and hopefully he can shed some light on why this happened.  It's the second time and this time the pain was even worse.  She is home and resting comfortably but is exhausted.  She will be on later today to blog.  Please keep her in your prayers.  Thanks.  Mike

Hello everyone!!!  I am back home and I have been praising God, smiling and happy dancing all day.  The treatment was a breeze today because of how excited I was and the nurses were all celebrating with me.  I am hyped!!  Only two more treatments to go and then I am DONE!!  Then I will be celebrating some more!  My friend Peggy Severe dared me before I left today to jump in the water fountain outside my Drs. office when I found out I was cancer free.  Well......I did it. was cold but I was so excited I didn't care. Mike got a picture of it.  I will post the picture of that tomorrow.  Hysterical. 

Thank you all for the awesome support and for all of the prayers!  Thank you Lord for healing me 100%!!  I will gab more with you tomorrow!  My love and thanks to everyone!!!  God is so Good!!!!  Let's all praise Him!!!

Yahoo!!!!  GREAT NEWS!!!  Praise our wonderful God in heaven that Leslie is in remission and cancer free!!!!  She is so thrilled!! Her and Mike are doing the happy dance!! She is off to do her next treatment!  Thank you everyone for your prayers!!! 


Good morning!!  This is it.......the big day.  Will you stand in a prayer of faith with me that I am totally 100% healed from this cancer and that the Dr. will have nothing but good news for me?  I feel God's peace.  There were a few butterflies in my stomach last night but they are gone now.  As soon as I find out anything I will call my sister and she will update the blog this morning.  I will come back on again this afternoon when we get back.

I want to wish my friends Madeline Willis, Vicki Rush and Deb Sempsrott a very "Happy Birthday" today!  Have a fun day today ladies!!!

Good morning everyone!!  I survived yesterday and slept real well last night and am feeling much better this morning.  Of course I always do feel better the day before my next treatment.  Tomorrow Mike and I have to leave super early.  My Drs. appointment is at 9:00 and my chemo treatment is at 10:30.  So we will be out of here by 6:00 tomorrow.  As soon as I get the results from my Dr. in the morning I will then call my sister and she will update you all here.  I just feel such peace about the whole thing.  Mike is doing pretty good too.  Please keep us both in your prayers today and tomorrow.  My prayer of faith is to be completely healed and in remission.  Again.....thank you so much for faithfully praying!!!

Tonight we are celebrating my son-in-law Ryan's birthday with a party at his Dad's house.  His birthday is actually on Friday but he and Jenna will be in San Francisco this weekend for his birthday.  Just one little last hurrah trip before the baby comes.  I love San Francisco!  Such a beautiful area.  Jenna has been with me before so she knows where all the fun places are to go.

I want to wish my friend Jessica Brigman a very Happy Birthday today!!!  Have fun today Jess!!!

Have a wonderful day everyone!  Today is another gift and God is so Good!!!

What month of the year did you get married??  Mike and I are August.

Hey everyone!!  We are back.  Everything went great! The staff couldn't of been nicer.   They were able to find a vein on the first try and the morning just seemed to go by fast.  I received a lot of prayer requests yesterday and I prayed for them all and also added them to my prayer list.  When you are talking to God in that machine you just have an overwhelming peace.  I feel real good about this.  I will know the results on Thursday morning.

Mike and I went out and had a HUGE breakfast after the test and now I am stuffed and ready for a nap.

Congrats to Jake and Alexa (Olstowski) Willis on the new little one on the way!!  I am so excited for you and your whole family! 

Have a super rest of the day and thank you so very much for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers today.  I felt them so much!

Today is another gift and God is so Good!!!!!


Good morning!!  Mike and I are off to Yuma for my PET scan.  Thanks for praying!!  I will blog later today when I get back home.
