The past two days have been good. My new hair do is staying put...kind of. To be honest, I haven't brushed it much. Each time I do I lose more hair. When I get a bit closer to just shaving my head, I think we will make it a family event...Daddy shave one part, Dylan shaving another, and Kiki another. I think making it a family event will be more fun and easier for the kids. Actually, it will be easier on me to have the kids a part of this step. I'm sure they will be fine.
Today I was blessed to have a gentleman named Jonathon Cooper from the AZ Republic come to my home to interview Deron and I so he could write a story in this Saturday's Southwest paper. Today also happens to be our 8 year Anniversary. It is also my brother and Cher's 4th Anniversary. Jonathon was so pleasant and easy to talk with. It was also therapeutic for me to think back on how it started, the days in the hospital, the times with friends and my amazing family. It was good to even talk about how Dr. Rodriquez talked with Deron before the colonoscopy about his belief of me having colon cancer...then Deron breaking the news to me. It was neat to talk about what a role model my mom is for me. She knows first hand how important your belief in God is and how a positive mental attitude plays such a huge role in healing. These two aspects should always be the driving force of everyday regardless if you are fighting for your life or not. It's a shame it takes something like this to make us remember. I thank our Lord everyday for bringing me back to him as well as everyone of my friends and family. This experience has already brought so much good to my life as well as my family's. It is so neat to see comments from people I haven't had the opportunity to meet yet that say I've inspired them. That is the best feeling. I'm really excited for the Colon Cancer Walk this Saturday morning and then the Guns vs. Hoses football game that night. It will be a long day but so worth it. I hope to see you all there for the game. It should be a blast watching the flag football game that always turns out to have a few tackles in it. Goodnight! Don't forget to thank God for all the things he does for you everyday.
Love you all!!
