I turned a healing corner this week. Doc said to give it a month and he was right. My cheek, ear and neck are still bothering me, which causes my lack of sleep. I still have my belly wrapped tight, but it's looking pretty flat!

I started my shots of Monday. Paul had to put one in my butt! I did the other 2. I don't mind these injections. I know that I am doing something good for my body. I will continue doing them twice a week for 12 weeks. I am hoping to see a difference in my tumor that's growing in my right parotid gland. Maybe it will shrink! That would be exciting.

Other News:
My birthday is on Monday. I have been thinking about it, but not excited like I usually am. Last year I turned 30. I had a beautiful birthday party to celebrate. I remember being so happy that I was feeling better after the surgery. My hair was growing, my strength came back. I thought my battle was over. I listened to the doctors and did the treatments they recommended and got through it.
What am I celebrating this year? What's changed in a year? I'm feeling good, but just waiting to have more surgery. I just wish things would change and that next year when I turn 32, I can celebrate something. Look forward to something other than the results from my next pathology report.

So, I am not really happy about my birthday. Because to me, nothing in my life has changed.

Don't forget that Sarcoma week is coming up! Support me by wearing your blue bracelet. If you dont have one..let me know.
