Dad called me today and cheered me up. I really needed it since it was cloudy and rainy today - I have a hard time managing when it's not sunshiny out. He told me about his dad who was a sheep shearer (and coal miner.) He said Grandpa Eldon Harward was allergic to the sheep's wool and that his hands and arms would get covered with sores during shearing time. The sores would bleed and look horrible. Dad said to blame him for my rash/skin woes. When I told him it wasn't on my palms (though my fingers are now peeling), he said that Grandpa's never got on his palms, either. So, I inherited this great miracle skin on my palms. I'll be sure to thank him for the mixed blessing when I get to Heaven!
I'm a mom, wife, student, genealogist and I love my lap top. I like to laugh and read. And be with family. I did the breast cancer thing in May 2008 - lumpectomy, nodes, chemotherapy, radiation....
Dec 2008 was my last radiation but alas, alak, those tests are not to be trusted!
This past Fall I had a bulging disc in my back. A miracle "pain." An MRI in Sep 2009 showed the disc and... cancer. Did a bone scan and found more. I've broken my right arm - (pathological break a couple weeks ago just for interest), had back and brain surgery most recently and will begin radiation soon. Apparently, the breast cancer was lurking around in my bones all this time and no one figured it out! Good thing God is on board and is taking great care of me... us... everyone:)
