Still Kicken'

Thursday, November 6th was my last day of radiation!!!! I feel like I have been microwaved, but that has only been the last 1 1/2 wks. Prior to that radiation was a breeze. It gets old going to the hospital everyday, but day by day you just check one more day off and eventually done! My hair is still growing in gray, so I will fix that this week. I am not complaining, at least it is hair. My eyelashes and eyebrows are back and I feel much better. I don't have to go to the doctor or hospital this week. The first time in 8 months! Next week I go back to the plastic surgeon and we start the expansion process over again. I hope to be reconstructed by December. Following that I have a doctors appointment every 3 months, (alternating radiologist and oncologist), I have a mammogram every 6 months, a Lupron shot every 3 months and Arimidex ($85/mo.!!!) pill every day. Things are definitely looking up.
Rylin had a softball tournament this weekend. The mighty father took all 4 kids and 1 extra to St. George by himself. I had state volleyball so I couldn't go. Our volleyball team took 6th, which was a great accomplishment. I am happy for the girls.
As of now radiation is over, volleyball is over, and Kai and Rylin don't have an extracurricular. What am I going to do with my time??? Ripken goes 100 mph., he is into and on top of everything. He will keep me busy for the next 5-18 yrs. I might have to start cooking dinners, whipping the kids back into a schedule and really cleaning the house. - Sounds like a real mom!

I'm so glad to hear that things are starting to slow down and get better for you. Congrats on your Volleyball season. I miss playing. If only they would let 29 year olds try out for the H.S. team. :)

I always enjoy your updates. Your kids are adorable and I'm glad things are progressing.

Congrats on another successful volleyball season...those girls are lucky to have you coaching them. Oh, the glory days of volleyball! :)

Don't know if I ever told you, but I met my husband through volleyball. Thanks to you, I had a great experience with it and continued playing in college. We still play once a week and love it!

Can you not believe how awesome it is to just kick back and do NOTHING!!! I cannot believe Ryan took all your kids down to St. George by himself. That is the coolest thing I have heard in a long time!! Did he appreciate you even more when he got home??? Give yourself some credit... not many people can look as good as you do with that sexy silver (sounds more eccentric than gray right?) hair! We were at the state tourney watching Eric's sisters team and actually watched your game for awhile. They did awesome. Congrats to the lady Pioneers!!! I am so glad you are done!!! YAY!!!

Angie, I'm so glad you're done, and with so much success! I marvel at the love and support you have from Ryan and your family -- what blessings. Please do keep this blog up-to-date and I hope to see you around the pool or Legacy Center again soon!

YAY!!!!! I'm soooo excited for you! It is simply amazing that you still worked, coached volleyball, was a mom to 4 (maybe 5) kids, and battled cancer! You are an inspiration to us all and deserve a little R & R. We love you!

I'm so happy to hear things are getting better for you! I loved reading you updates and progress. I cant believe how big your kids have gotten, they are so cute!
Congrats on your volleyball season. I'll have to come watch one of your teams games next season, since I dont live to far from the school.
Well take care and keep us posted!
Thanks! Lose (Lavaki)
