A good week!

Hey there!
What a great week I have had!  I went to the Florida State Fair with my best friend, Pam, and her parents on Wednesday afternoon.  When I finally got home at 11 that night, I think I just passed out from the best kind of fatigue I  have had in a couple of months.  All the laughter was good for my soul.

I had Thursday to recuperate and do some things around the house and pay bills, but found out I had been the victim of bank fraud.  So I got to spend the afternoon going to the sheriff's office to fill out paperwork, then to the bank to fill out more paperwork and to get a new debit card.  What a frustrating afternoon, but it's in the hands of the sheriff's department and the bank's investigation team, so there's nothing more I can do. 

Went yesterday (Friday) for lab work, getting ready for Monday's doctor's appointment and round 4 of chemotherapy.  One of my friends told me chemo is like a marathon boxing match, that's why we should fight like a girl and knock out cancer each round we take!  I love it! For the first time in my life, I am actively looking for a fight!

Tonight is the Breast Cancer Awareness fund raiser at Trader's Ally in downtown Lakeland, so if you're in town and looking for a good time, come on out and join us!  A good time is sure to be had by all.  Special guest DJ will be Casey Turner, a classmate of mine.  He was on Big Brother 11 and is the official DJ for the Tampa Bay Storm and the LFL's Tampa Bay team. 

Please remember to do your monthly self breast exams! Only you know what's normal and not normal for you.  Schedule your annual mammograms and PAP Smears to prevent breast and cervical cancer!
FEEL YOUR BOOBIES!  I hope to see everyone soon!

Love and Kisses


  1. Denys, I honor your willingness and determination to fight! Some people flee when in fear, but some folks, (folks like you!!) stand up and prepare for the battle! I'm so proud of you for not giving up. So proud of you for keeping that smile and positive outlook, rather than looking at what could be!! You my friend, are a true warrior, and I am SO proud of you! Every time I see your name or one of your comments on Facebook, I think back to school, and how you were ALWAYS smiling! Always! Such a great spirit and gift within you, and I pray God uses you greatly in and through this, to be an amazing witness to others who aren't so optimistic. If I can ever help you, please let me know. Know that you are daily in my prayers. Hugs to you! Ronni
