Staying positive!

Hey ya'll.
It's been a while. I know. I've been super busy with a ton of things, but today's post is to fill you in what's been going on with good ol' ME.
First of all today is my BIRTHDAY! Those who know me, know I LOVE my birthday. It's my day, all about me, how awesome I am, how perfect I am, and how beautiful I am. ha just kidding....kind of...

Anyways, a lot of people have been wondering why i'm so "sick" and what's been going on and here is the gist of it.
I haven't been actually sick (other than this dang cold thing that has been hanging on for EVER) but I do have some health issues on my plate.
The doctors have found two tumors in my right breast and i'm getting them biopsied for Cancer.
So NO I don't have cancer and i'm staying positive that I DON'T have it. The doctors are pretty sure that I can say i'm in the clear but they said nothing is 100%. So i've been to a ton of doctors appointments, had ultrasounds, consultations and now waiting on my biopsy appointment.
I am so big on not worrying until I have to, so i'm staying positive that i'm A-OK!

It is a lot on my plate and yes the worry is still in the back of my mind a bit, after all i'm so young and have too many good things going on in my life that I don't need this. Dustin has been a huge support in all of this and has been at all my appointments and is so patient with me when i'm stressed out about the smallest things. I think it's affected me a little more than I think. I don't actually "stress" about it, but it's just another thing I have to deal with, and of course it's not a fun thing...

Anyways, so that's it. I guess i've been avoiding my blog because I am such an open and real person and I haven't felt like I can be myself lately with all this going on.

So today is my birthday and guess where I spent it. In the hospital for my biopsy consultation....

And this is what I think of that....


I'm grateful for this man right here. I LOVE this picture of us. 
Love him.



And I love these little girls!



Here's to staying positive!! :)

That is the way to be! I had two tumors/polyps removed from my bladder in July, thankfully they were benign/non cancerous!! But still scary and not fun. Best of luck!!

Oh no Mindy!!! Sooooo sorry to hear this news!!!! But, so glad to hear it will be okay! Man that is scary! Sending good thoughts your way! I will be praying for you honey!!!!! My mom has had numerous cysts in both of her breasts all of her life, and they just keep draining them/taking them out. I can only imagine how stressed you have been. But you are so amazingly positive it is an inspiration. I know the Lord is watching out for you! Love ya!!!!
