Tis just ME

I went to Dr. Jones this AM, just for a follow up.
He did my reconstruction.  He told me
anything that isn't great he'll fix when I get
my nipple!!  woohoo

I go back to see him June 2nd, which is after all my
chemo is done!! Praise God, tis NOT that far off.

I drove myself and it felt GOOD to be out
and independent. 

 I just wanted to show you
how cute my hat is!! *Made & gifted to me  by Lallee's Cottage*

Rich said, I see you over there taking pictures of 
yourself.. Made me Laugh!! 

He's on the couch , I'm about to go take a nap. I had 
lunch & it's 11.30..good time for a nap.
I might make THIS later..when I can get out to shop for 
some supplies

Hope today  is good & please pray for my friend Church.

  19. Hi Deena...just stopping by to say "hi" and see how you're doing. I'm so glad you're doing so well. I'm sorry though that your hubby isn't feeling well. Hope it doesn't "visit" you. We're on vacation for 2 weeks and having a good time, but I'll visit when I can.

    Hugs sweet friend!

  20. Well Deena, you may have been "down" the other day but you look wondering today and so pretty in your hat. xoxoxo

    Hugs, Sharon, My Vintage Studio

  22. Deena,

    You look very pretty in your cute hat. I'm so glad you were able to get out and drive yourself to your appointment. You go girl!

    Sorry that Rich is down with that nasty flu. It definitely zaps the strength. I am still recuperating. My friend in Arkansas had it a while back and she said it took her 2 weeks to get feeling back to her old self. I'm still struggling.

    My joys for today:
    A bright sunny day on such a lot of snow. Made the world look so clean.

    Spending time with Brandon and Jordan.

    Feeling a little better each day.

    Having you for my friend.

    Enjoying the love of my Lord.


  23. Some people just look really cute in hats and you are one of them. I look dorky in them. It must have felt very good today to drive yourself, good for you. Hope hubby is feeling better.

    LeAnn :)

  24. Deena: Back from Dallas after a grueling week. Little Eva will find out on Wednsday if she needs chemo and radiation. I am overwhelmed at the love and prayer support we have received. My faith in humanity is almost restored!!
    Still praying for you. ( You look great!!)

    Dad eight

  41. Hi Deena,
    Sorry I haven't been around lately to see you but you know how sometimes life gets in the way of blogging?? :O)

    You look plum spiffy in that new hat! So sweet of Lallee to make it for you. Don't we have wonderful blog friends?

    Love that bird nest and eggs! So cute! I'm glad you're feeling good!

    Love and Hugs,

  42. Hi Deena,

    I love the hat and you look beautiful! I hope your hubby gets better really soon so you can be in the same room again :)


  43. Love this cheery post Deena. I can hear birds singing in the background of your lovely music...
    Your hat is adorable and shows off your pretty face so well.
    Prayers continue...

  44. You look purr tee in the hat. That was great that you drove yourself to the nipple doc. It is the simple things that make life spectacular as stated by the goofy guy with huge eyebrows on sissy minutes. Peace

  45. O.K you are too adorable in that hat. I LOVE IT! I’m so glad to hear your feeling independent

    Hugs! Nancy

  46. Hi there beautiful girl! That hat that Lallee made you is perfect and looks wonderful on you! You look stunning today! I pray all is going better, and it sounds like it is.

    I love tender hearts, too!


  47. You look so pretty in your new hat and your make up looks like it was done by a pro. Keep smiling and these treatments will be over before you know look lovely.

  48. Fabulous you Deena!
    Hope Rich is feeling better.

    Glad you are able to drive and get around some - this is good for your morale and, with Spring imminent, you will enjoy getting about to enjoy the scenery I know.

    Hugs - Mary.

  49. Great hat!!
    I'm loving reading your "joys" that you list. It's good medicine you know not only for you but for others as well.
    Oh I have to tell you....your birds singing in the background.....sound like the ones that make nests on the patio (in the metal roof that is over it) outside of our bedroom. I just bought a new wicker furniture set for the patio and they have been dropping their "nesting material" all over the far though, no bird poop so that's good. HA!

  50. Love the hat...and love reading your positive thoughts.

  51. sleep well, deena....hoping you are feeling well....and didn't get the flu....and taking care.
    love and prayers,

  52. You are looking simply gorgeous. I hope that means that you did not catch that bug your hubby has.

    Stay strong...

    Becky K.

  53. Deena, you look absolutely breathtaking! That hat is adorable, really makes your pretty eyes stand out.

    Hope your hubby is feeling better & will pray that you don't take it. I'm home now, didn't take my mom's pneumonia, or my hubby's flu.

    Big Hugs & Prayers,
    Angelic Accents

  54. I just wanted to tell you to stay encouraged. I have had cancer for 7 years. And for the past 4 stage 5. Bone cancer and brain. God is amazing. People say they dont know how I do it. I tell them I dont. God does. Driving yourself was huge I know. Independence is very important and the little things become huge. So yay for you!
    Take care.

  55. Hi Deena, check my blog and your emails as you have won an ATC from my Giveaway.

  56. good morning, my friend....hoping you have a joy kissed day today...
    love and prayers,

  57. It's Wednesday morning and I am just peeking in your door to wish you a pain free, sick free, only happy DAY.
    We all love you, sweet Deena...and would do anything in the world for you.
    hugs, bj

  58. Deena - you look beautiful in that hat! Love - love - love the look of your's spectacular!

  59. Deena,
    You looking stunning!! Really, so beautiful, calm and at peace. I'm so glad you took the pictures of yourself. The hat is adorable too.
    Glad you enjoyed your cake and a cold glass of milk. Take care and keep being gentle with yourself. You are one very special lady. As usual, a visit to your blog, brightened my whole day, rays of yellow sunshine pouring in.

  60. Deena:
    Great news. Little Eva does not have to have the chemo and radiation treatments. Just a CT every three months for 2 years.
    Thanks so much for your prayerful support. I am going to Mass on Friday and I will be offering my communion for your total and complete healing.


  61. Denna, I only "know" you through Amy's blog but I just had to tell you how much your post meant to me today. I've been feeling so overwhelmed with life that I forgot how much I have to be thankful for. So thank you Deena. You will be in my thoughts. Take care.

  62. Love the hat, love red velvet cake.
    Your hat is darling and you look so young in it - that should make you feel LOTS better!
    You're in my prayers, sweetie.
    Take care of yourself and know you're loved.
    xoxo, Jan

  66. That hat looks great on you...quite chic. I think one of the most inspiring components of your blog is when you post your joys. In the midst of your suffering- you choose joy, and I am deeply inspired by that. Mother Teresa spoke of choosing joy often...

    God Bless ~ Lana
