Back to Work I Go!

Today I spent a couple of hours at school which was fun and tiring, all at the same time! I read the announcements in the morning and surprised all the students! I visited with people and got my paperwork completed for my absences.

In addition to the excitement of work, I started my cancer drug today. It will reduce the chance of my cancer returning to 4%! That means I have a 96% chance of staying cancer free! I will take this drug for the next five years and meet with my oncologist every three months for a year... then annually if all is going well!

Ashley is defending her thesis today all while trying to deal with a herniated disc. We do NOT do things the easy way in our family! She is on some good medication and I am hoping that by tomorrow she feels a lot better.

Tomorrow I go in for another couple of hours. I plan to walk through the building and say hello to as many kids as I can!!


  1. Oh, Terri, so glad you are getting back into the groove of your life. Hooray for you!

  2. Hip Hip Horray! As excited as you must be to be back at school, I just know your teachers and students are thrilled. I am too!


  3. Sooooo happy for you that you are getting back to your old routine!!! I bet all the kids were so excited to see you!!! Hugs!!! xoxo

  4. So very happy that you are slowly getting back to your old routine. I know the students and faculty are thrilled to see you doing so well. I hope Ashley feels much better soon. Take care Terri.

  5. Terri, this is such good news.

    I continue daily in prayer for you.

  6. This is GOOD news Terri...and I know it feels wonderful to be back where you belong with your staff and the kids.
    I am so sorry Ashley has this! My sis in law does as well and just had to have surgery. I hope Ashley will get relief from the meds and be able to do what shje needs to do. Bless her heart!
    You are never far from my thoughts and prayers...

  7. Sounds wonderful, Terri!!

    I am loving Fifi's painting in your header!!

  8. An answer to prayer!! Such wonderful wonderful news!!!!!

    Hope Ashley's feeling better!

  9. I can't believe that you're already able to go back... I think I'd totally be milking it for as long as I could;)
    Seriously, though, I'm so glad that you are feeling better!


Comments are the new hugs!
