Still Here

I've been MIA for a couple of reasons.

Reason #1:  We moved!  To Dallas!  It's so exciting!  And busy, of course.  When Eric told me we would have people to pack our stuff, I thought it would be easy.  In a way, I guess it was, but there was much cleaning and sorting and discarding.

Reason #2:  I was on colon club a couple days before we moved and read that two people died, both young, both from stupid colorectal cancer.  Even if I don't know the people well, news of death shakes me up.  It's just a hard thing to read about.  It makes me want to hide, because scary things like cancer can't affect you when you're hiding, right?  Yeah, right.

Reason #3:  I had chemo about a week before we moved, and now I don't see my new doc until October 10th (I think?  It's a Monday).  Why so long?  Mostly scheduling conflicts.  Eric is going to be in and out for a couple weeks, and my new doc is taking a vacation.  It's okay.  I'm muchly enjoying this chemo break since I'm not exactly sure when I'll get another one.  There's just not much to talk about when I'm not on chemo.  Mostly I pretend I don't have cancer at all.  ;)

I'm also working out some things in my head, mainly concerning my faith.  I'll share when I feel it's shareable, but for now, I'd appreciate prayers and positive thoughts. 

So yeah.  I'm going to get my house set up, enjoy time with my kids and husband, and I'll catch back up with you when there's something to report.  Take care, all!


  1. Take care Sheri and glad the move went well xx

  2. Julie said... My prayers are with you!!!! I hope the doctor comes up with a good plan for you. Love, Mom

  3. My prayers are with you every day. Dad and I love you so much and we are so glad that Texas is fun. Your family is blessed with a love for life that is so awesome. Love Mom and Dad J

  4. I'm glad you made it okay! We all missed you guys on Monday, we pulled up to the rec center and Agnes says, "Reese won't be here, will she?" She had a hard time last week saying goodbye (she's a softie like mom). You and your family remain in my thoughts & prayers:) Love, Jess

  5. Keeping you in my thoughts... Happy organizing.
