Building This Bridge for Them

I am a Catholic homeschooling mom of three beautiful kids - well, the oldest has finished college and is working now and the second is in college, so only my baby is left at home with me (except in the summers). My baby, Danny, who is fourteen, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma (brain cancer) in March of 2013. Since then he has undergone two major surgeries, six weeks of radiation, and over a year of chemotherapy. He was in remission for a few brief months, and then relapsed. This is a ...
I am a Catholic homeschooling mom of three beautiful kids - well, the oldest has finished college and is working now and the second is in college, so only my baby is left at home with me (except in the summers). My baby, Danny, who is fourteen, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma (brain cancer) in March of 2013. Since then he has undergone two major surgeries, six weeks of radiation, and over a year of chemotherapy. He was in remission for a few brief months, and then relapsed. This is a very difficult time for us.

I myself am a breast cancer survivor, and I have degenerative arthritis in my hip, which makes walking painful. Other than that, I am pretty healthy, for which I am extremely grateful.

My Goals:
Right now my goals are to incorporate small healthy changes. One other goal is to be able to exercise without severe pain in my hip...not sure if that is feasible with my arthritis.

My Program:
I am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, plus walking as much as I can without pain.

Personal Information:
I am originally an Army brat and have lived in quite a few places. Currently I am in Texas, at least for a while. I have three kids, ages 25, 22, and 14. My degrees are in chemistry, but at the moment I am concentrating on trying to get Danny through relapse treatment and all that that entails.

Other Information:
Strength of character isn't always about how much you can handle before you break, it's also about how much you can handle after you've broken.

Thank you for the Goodie and the kind words. I'm very familiar with that college. A few kids from our church have attended there. My mother used to work for the Navy in Carlisle. They lived near Hershey. It was quite a drive for her, but a good job.

I have to agree with you. I love my yoga pants and sweatshirts and I am almost to my goal weight and feel good. I would kill myself in my sister's shoes! I think it is more about how they present themselves. Thanks for reading my blog and good luck with your own goals.

I just corrected my blog about DH's swimming. Breaststroke burns more calories than backstroke. I didn't hear him correctly and he missed the error when he proofread it. Since breaststroke is the most restful stroke for me, it sounded reasonable. It must be a matter of intensity though. I go really slow in breaststroke.
