It's been a while

It has been a long time since I posted on my blog, but honestly live has been super busy. Since August 2010 I have faced many challenges, but am happy to report things are finally starting to slow down, Whew! I am grateful for that.

Saw the endocrinologist last week about my diabetes and got good news. Finally my A1C is within normal range. I went from 15.6 to 6.4 since August. He said I was doing a great job at controlling my diabetes. Still on insulin. Recheck in 3 months.

I had a F/U mammogram today and it looked good! Praise God! No CANCER! Yippeeeeeee! God is good! Another mammogram in September and if that is good we go back to yearly mammograms. I did see the radiation oncologists couple of weeks ago and he thought all was looking good. He will continue to follow me for awhile.

Seeing the eye doctor at the end of the month and having another diabetic eye exam. Finally my eyes have settled down. There for a while I was starting to wonder. My eyes were changing so much (pretty much every 2 weeks). It was very frustrating. It honestly made life a little tuff. During the past 6 weeks they have stayed the same, thank goodness.

I have so much to be thankful for and God has seen me through it all. I can not image trying to go through all of this and not have God. We had many conversations! My family and friends have been very supportive and loving. I am so thankful and so blessed. Praise God!

In the mist of all of this, our oldest son got married and our my younger son got engaged - getting married in October. Ironically he is getting married on what will be my 1 year anniversary from having a lumpectomy. He didn't realize that until I brought it to his attention. The way I see it we will have 2 huge things to celebrate on that day.

My God is an awesome God! (I love that song) God Bless!

October is a great time to get married. I decided to marry a man named Russell when he asked me Oct. 16, 1989 and married him Oct. 17, 1989 (yep, the next day).. Twenty one years later, that was still a good decision. :) Congrats to your family!
