CANCER FREE (well, not technically, but close enough for me!)

I just got the results from my last scan, and there was no sign of thyroid activity! Which means I'm clean! I'm done! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am!!!! I technically can't call myself cancer free for one year, but who the heck cares:


Go me!!! I am awesome! Now I have to figure out how to celebrate...

Walk For Diabetes

Last weekend there was a walk for Juvenile Diabetes, and since my 13 year old brother Conner has diabetes, we all decided to walk for him! Here is Team Conner:We all have custom made shirts (made by Alex and Deia!) that show our support for Conner and his great attitude towards dealing with diabetes. Mine was a little different, since my childhood best friend also has diabetes, so I had my shirt say that I support Conner and Christina!
Rob had the day of his life when he met the star wars characters! He seriously stopped when he saw them, his jaw dropped, and then his whole body just started to shake with excitement! He then galloped over to see them, and when Darth Vader asked if he was a Jedi who had the force with him, he about toppled over! He was so beyond excited!!!!
Us girls had fun walking, and Echo (my niece) would let me hold her hand while we walked. She is so sweet!

I love you Conner and Christina and I am so amazed at what you both put up with everyday! I am praying for a cure!

What Bugs Me

Doctors who think they know more than they really do and talk down to you because of it.

Nurses who actually know more but I can't talk to them about it because the doctor insists I talk to him instead.

Dumb school-inflated heads. Just because you have more med school debt than nurses doesn't mean you no more than they do.
