It's been too long

I am so sorry I haven't written in such a long time. When I signed on I couldn't remember Tara's code and couldn't believe how long its actually been. I have been busy.
I went to my parents up North for 2 weeks, not at the same time. Mark wouldn't have liked that. I had a garage sale, never again. I went to have my port flushed and it was clotted, I go now every 4 weeks instead of 6weeks. I took Jack to Wilderness Lodge in Wisconsin Dells and also Key Lime Cove, both times giving me a rash on the backs of my legs by the knee. (possible allergy to the high chlorine content) I haven't been on Chemo since my last posting. I just take some oral medicine. No side effects so far. I was tested to see about mutation and possible lesions in my other breast. I just got the results and I have no Mutation. Yeah..... I went into the Dr. office about 2 weeks ago cause I was getting dizzy spells and not good on my feet, turns out I was dehydrated. At this time I am battling a itchy rash from head to toe (literally). I had strep throat and had a reaction to it because my immunity is so low. Doctor said it will run its course which is about 3 months. It's awful and ugly!!! I was told to rub banana peel on my body, it helps heal. I ended up with 2 dogs and 2 cats in bed with me, guess I smelled really good. Just joking, no cats. The dogs always sleep with me if Mark doesn't shoo them off. I was put on another drug Thurs. I tested high for some hormone and they want this drug (can't remember name) to help warn off any possible cancer cells . My hair coming in, slowly. It's gray and curly.
I bought my first prosthetic to the tune of $300. Ouch. I will have one and eventually get another. It's not like I have to worry about it growing back, Ha ha.
My cousins and I went today and got pedicures and manicures. It was fun and I feel good. My body and head are not me but my hands and feet look pretty good. In the past several months I have learned how truly nice people can be. I have the best friends and family in the world. I am so lucky!!!! I really want to thank everyone for the flowers, dinners, babysitting, driving Miss Cathy all over the state, cards, and especially the thoughts and prayers. Thank you again, I love you all.
