About this blog

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 11, 2010. As a result of my treatment, I have lymphedema in my left arm. I draw my strength from the Lord, as well as my family's Scots-Irish heritage. Our Graham's were a tough and scrappy bunch of fighters on the Scottish/English border. They came to America and continued to fight when necessary: in the American Revolution; the Civil War; and my brother is a Captain in the U.S. Army. My ancestors settled this country against all odds. My great-grandmothers on both sides of the family were pioneer women who settled the West. Along with that heritage, and the full armor of God, I am walking the walk and fighting the good fight.

Another day off


I've got the day off of radiation and I would rather not have the unexpected holiday. I got a call as I was headed out the door this morning at 7:25 to take the kids to school. I had already turned the house alarm on and was about to go out the door.  I considered just letting the machine get it, but decided to see who it was. I'm glad I went to the phone. It turned out to be the radiation office saying not to come in this morning-they were having trouble with their machine. They rescheduled me for 2 p.m. At noon, they called to say not to come in at all.

I'm glad I didn't trek all the way over there this morning just to be turned away.

But this will extend my treatment time by a day. Not cool!  The new end-date is February 18th.

Let's pray that they get their equipment fixed over the weekend!  I also would appreciate prayers that this hiatus will not adversely affect my treatment.
