Katie Jensen Daily in Millcreek Canyon, Monday, January 27, 2014

Today, I went to the neurosurgeon’s to have my staples removed. We counted about 27 of them. I am happy to say that my scar is healing quickly.  And, since they tapered my off the steroids, I have been able to sleep better and a good night’s sleep can not be over-stated.  It is very important. Also, last night, for the first time, I slept a bit on my right side, area where the tumor was.  I have been so cautious of keeping my head straight both day and night so it could heal properly.

I also want to emphasis that since my experience where I was comforted by angels, I have been so at peace.  It has been the kind of peace that I have not known for at least three years, since the cancer showed up.  I have been worried about all the what ifs… and now the worry is gone. Even before I left on the cruise, I had such mixed feelings about going.  I was thinking that I must be getting “trip anxiety” as I am getting older.  I think I knew something was coming.

I feel really good about my chances for survival. There are so many things that I want to accomplish in life.  I also have such a desire to learn about my ancestors.  I have this amazing uncle, Newel Reynolds, who has the most incredible website where he has researched and written about our ancestors.  His work is so meticulous, truly a labor of love.  I am indebted to him for all that he has done to make the stories of our ancestors come alive.

Today, I went back to Skyline which I couldn’t have done without Ann Jensen.  She and I have worked together this year in Community of Caring and it has been such a blessing.  She is one of the kindest people I know.  Today, Katie Jensen Daily, arrived to lend her support and she helped a ton too.  I really am so blessed to have them in my life.

My friends are bringing the most delicious dinners every night.  It is making such a difference to just have those prepared for us.

I have so enjoyed the visitors coming our way.  I’m sure when people hear “brain tumor” the worst thoughts come to mind and I look so normal.  I am excited to get stronger every day.
