Proud Friend

On my first day at Auburn, I met my best friend, Brandon. 6 years later, he is still my best friend, and now he is an Army Ranger! I got to go to he's graduation on Friday, and it was amazing! To see 100 soldiers stand and sing the National Anthem, with all the Veterans in the stands, how could you not be a proud American. They all stood with confidence, and looked so brave. I starting crying, if you know me, I don't cry much. I'm very proud of him and glad he gets to eat candy again!

Sorry it has been so long since I've written! I just got back from the beach with my family, and besides Tropical Storm Lee, I had a good time, and am nice and tan!!!

I find out about month ago, that the tumor is already showing some growth. Its very, very small, especially compared to pre-surgery. Because of this, I quit taking the chemo. 2 weeks ago, I started a new drug, and to be honest I have no idea what it is or does! I know that's bad, but my dad does all the research. I believe it attacks the tumor/cancer cells by cutting off the blood supply. I get an  infusion, in Birmingham, every two weeks. There is a guy who is 31 with the same type of cancer getting the same treatment as me. Its so nice to be able to talk to someone experiencing some of the same things you are. He was diagnosed around the age as I am now. He was very open about his experience and journey, also very positive. He and his wife were so nice, and funny. They make a infusion and day at the hospital a lot more tolerable.

Despite everything, I feel the best I have ALL year! In fact, I feel so good physically and emotionally I'm bored out of my mind! I still hope to find a job, but everything I start looking for a full time job, I change treatments or something happens. I need advice? Should I get a part-time job? I hate making decisions.

I do have Auburn and college Football to keep me entertained! What a game Saturday!!!

Recently I hiked Kennesaw Mtn with Candace. I've never done it before and it was so pretty!!! Here's some pics.

As always, thanks for the love, support, and prayers!
