THANK YOU & Pray for Rich , my family & me tomorrow

I love this award..a burning pink candle
bestowed this on me. What perfect timing for me .
(She just lost her lil furry baby too..OH I know the hurt of that loss.)

I began my Dexamethasone today, a booster for
me during chemo,

ordered a cool wig today, had lunch with
my oldest daughter and came home to REST.
Last evening my youngest daughter , Mercedes called to 
see if I'd go to 

Sweeney Todd with her. .
I  was out of here and at the movie with 30 minutes.
It was great to spend time with her, hug her and just sit next to her.
Oh the movie..I liked it  a Bloody Murder Musical..but a cautionary
Tomorrow will be a long day for Rich & me.  Be at the Oncology Center at 9:30 AM
..blood tests for me, meet with the oncologist, discuss the Pet/CT scan
then 5.5 hours of chemo & Herceptin IVs.

I'll let you know the outcome as soon as I can.
  I expect the best news
but ..I'm prepared for anything..God is holding me in His palm.

lovingly, deena

  6. Deena,

    My prayers will be with you and Rich tomorrow. I am asking God to send His angels to envelope you in their wings and keep you comfortable throughout this procedure.

    I'm glad you found the award. I had to go and get the boys from school today and took them for a chocolate milk at the local coffee shop. I had tea and we talked about what is going on in their lives. A nice time was had by one and all. ;-)

    Love you, my friend. Talk to you soon.

  13. Deena ~ I am praying for you ! I love how God holds us in His arms and when you go through things like this he will give you peace !
    hugs and prayers,

  14. That's such a neat picture of the candle. It represents so much, light, warmth, strength, hope. I love it.

    I will be praying for you sweetie. May you feel God's presense with you tomorrow.

    You will do great, I just know it!

    Love Sharon

  15. GORGEOUS wig, sweet Deena!!! It will look so perfect on prayers will be with you tomorrow and the days to follow for smooooth sailing through your treatments. So many prayers lifting up your name will be a WONDERFUL thing!! xxoo, Dawn

  16. That is a cool wig. I wish I could get my hair to look that perfect.

    They told us when we took mom in,
    "You will lose your hair, period."

    The good news is that you won't have to shave either. So, that's a plus.

    But, after it starts to come out, it might be easier on you if you just buzz it. Be sure and get some caps because you'll really get cold. It looks like you have a thick bunch of hair so you'll notice the temp difference right away.

    You will get through this and your life will be much richer on the other side.

  17. Dearest Deena, My heart and prayers are with you on your first day of chemo. Mine is ever still so fresh. My girlfriend, Rita, and I at lunch today talked of how grateful we are because of chemo. She has become my best friend. I would have never met her had we not crossed paths there. So embrace all that is before you. New doors will open up. It really is an amazing time and with your spirit of love and care, you will be blessed, I just know it...and I know others will be too.

    My husband came with me the first day too. It does help. Once you do it, it does become a piece of cake. It becomes the norm. You will almost look forward to it, as you miss your friends and can't wait to see them. Us gals would talk up a storm until the premeds set in, then we all fell asleep.

    Love to you and I'll be praying for you girl. I'm with you in spirit and understanding.

  18. Take care Deena, you are in my thoughts. I hope everything went well and you are feeling well today when you read this.

  19. Praying, Deena!!!

    Sending Loving Hugs as well ...


  20. Deena, you are in my heart and mind today as you go. May God work a miracle of love on you today. I'm praying.

  21. Dearest Deena,,You are always on my mind. Although I know you will Fine, it is all so scary! My heart and prayers are with YOU!!!! Love....A

  22. I am loving this wig! You will look stylishly sassy in it girl!! Toodles...Angie
