I am here

I am so sorry I have not been able to post to my blog.
I have been very sick with side effects and they had to stop chemo
I have severe neuropathy in my hands and feet so bad I have not been able to type. I have had pneumonia and/or bronchitis for over 2 months.
And been to the ER several times.

I have made a few updates thru FB over the last couple weeks tapping out a few things with a large kindergarten chubby pencil.
But was not able to blog , the pain is so bad.
I will try to do better.
I should have taught my Mom how to update it for me.
I just got to sick , and in pain....
They did finally put me on meds to hopefully help with the pain of the neuropathy on Wed.

I found out this past Tues that I still have cancer in both sides of my chest where they did they mastectomies when I went to the consult for the RADS.
I had been led to believe it was just in the side that was invasive.
He didnt want to have to do RADS on both sides if I still need surgery.
He wanted me to have more surgery first...Then RADS.

The next day I had to see my oncologist for the first time since they stopped chemo.
He told me that my surgeon..or no other surgeon would do surgery on me because my lungs are now in such bad shape from the COPD and chemo that I would die on the table...or never come off a vent.
I felt like someone had thrown cold water in my face.

Please keep me in your prayers that the chemo killed the cancer...and that if there was any left after chemo that the radiation will kill it.

Trusting in God...and Knowing that he knows whats best for me.
I know I can be healed by him, even without surgery.

My son Jason came and took me out to eat last week....
As you can see by the pic's I am looking better then a couple weeks before :)

Looking pretty bad here....


I look a bit better after 2 weeks ...

  4. Your line at the top of the blog says it all. Hold on tight to that courage. You are still in my mind that spunky skinny girl in elementary school- I don't think you've changed a bit(except for the plaid dresses.)

    Prayers and peace of mind that passes all understanding, Joanne

  14. SO glad you were finally able to post! As you can see, we were all very worried about you. So very sorry for all your pain. I do not know why you have to go through all of this, I only know that God is good, all the time, no matter what. He loves you and is holding you in His hand. Lean heavily on Him. Immerse yourself in Psalms; reading them helped me so, so much when I was at my lowest. I still turn to them often. I will increase my prayers for you, and God will hear of my sorrow and frustrations over your suffering!

  16. DEBBI! I am so happy to see your post! I've been thinking about you. I miss you here in the blogosphere. Your voice is important!

    I am so, so sorry to hear of the nightmare you have been through with the chemo, the cancer, the neuropathy. I am glad the drugs are finally helping. Also happy to hear you have the support of your loving family.

    Your humor shines through despite your pain; you had me laughing at the image of you typing with a chubby kindergarten pencil! (Maybe a family member can type the words for you as you speak them so you don't use up too much precious energy!)

    I'm keeping you in my prayers and I look forward to hearing from you again soon that the neuropathy is better. Let us know what your next plan medically is.

    xoxo

  32. I am leaving a comment here... where I first met Debbi. Although I'd been following her on Facebook, I only learned tonight that Debbi has been stolen by this disease. I saw this on Renn's blog. We are a tight bunch and we do keep tabs on each other.....

    I am so sorry for yet one more voice silenced and one more life taken. I hope Debbi's family knows she is missed by many more people than they even realize.

    I send my love to all of you.....

  34. When I see your writing I feel proud to read it because this for writing on breast cancer. By the way this news has depleted me to read with joy that you are in some injuries. I pray for you to come on first writing once again. Breast cancer has been so harmful for the world that this has made us helpless. Bur proper treatment has broken all the limitations created by breast cancer.
