My days right now consist of waking up around 6am everyday. I manage to sleep from 930pm to around 530-6am everyday and then around lunch feeling completely drained and needing a nap. Some days I do get out of the house and just run some random errands and of course right now lots of doctor appointments. The weeks I have right now in-between surgery and the start of treatment seem to be going in slow motion, but are necessary for my body to recover and get as much strength as possible back to be able to fight like help with my treatment. One thing is for sure, my dogs won’t leave my side as I recover.

Back in June 2006, the summer before my senior year of high school I started this rollercoaster ride and was diagnosed with Leukemia. Then fast forward two years of treatment with chemo and a few hip surgeries including having both my hips replaced. I still managed to graduate high school in 2007 while fighting cancer and treating. I took 2 years college tuition as my make a wish and determined right there that I was going to beat cancer and be a college graduate. But little did I know that I was going to have another fight with cancer in the form of brain tumor come May 2013. A Grade II astrocytoma to be precise. I ended up having to put college on the back burner to fight this battle and I came out on top again. Now what brings me to why I'm starting this blog. I recently managed to fulfill my dream and graduated college on May 9th 2018. Unfortunately only to find out the very next day that my tumor had come back and appeared to be a higher grade.
