Thanks for your comments!

Well, I thought since it had been a few days I would update. First I just want to tell everyone who commented this last time thank you. I was thinking maybe my blogs were getting to boaring and no one was out there.j/k No really thank you for commenting. I really needed some uplifting thoughts and comments this week. I have been a little blue with the winter weather and no sun. I suffer from the winter blues or what ever you want to call it. It isn't as bad as it has been in years past yet. I usually take up tanning about this time but I don't think I will be able to do that this winter. So I really look forward to the sun filled days and the uplifting comments thank you. I also want to say thanks for the cards and phone calls they always help too. I guess I am fore warning you incase I sound to negative.

I am so looking forward to having all most all of my family here for Christmas. It is nice to have something to look forward to. My sister Chauntel is coming on Christmas eve and my sister Bailey is coming the day after Christmas. Of course their familes are coming with them and we are all so excited. I love Christmas traditions.

Friday was a good day. I went in to get my blood work done for my appointment with Dr. Rado on Monday. When I was there gettting my blood work done I talked with one of the nurses about my CAT scan. She said not to be to disappointed. She said the cancer that they found could just be dead cancer cells not cancer that is growing. Maybe my body just hasn't totally cleaned it all out yet. She said wait until you talk to Dr. Rado. So that helped a little. My appointment isn't until 4pm tomorrow. It has seemed like an eternity. I am really excited to see what he has to say about both of the scans.

Saturday was such a nice relaxing day. I seemed to be having a lot of those lately. We watched all the Bourne(sp) movies. It was also my father-in-laws birthday. So my mother in law had a party for him on Saturday. I have the hardest time buying gifts for either of them. Ryan is not helpful he always just says I don't know. So I am always on my own. We did find somethings so I hope he likes them. We went over to there house for dinner and decorated Christmas ornaments. The kids loved it. Then we all went to watch the Chipmunks. It was cute there were some parts they could have done with out. I remember watching the Chipmunks when I was a kid. I loved them and their music.

Today I was able to go to church. Most weeks I feel really good I am able to go. The only problem is with everyone germs, germs. I know I am not careful enough about them. Anyway I left early today with Carter after sacraement. Carter has been running a fever for a few days and we thought he should better not go and get all the other kids sick. So he and I hang out for a while until everyone else came home. I have been working on a few Christmas gifts today. I can't stop thinking about christmas goodies. I usually do Christmas goodies and take them around to friends. I just haven't had a good enough day to stand in the kitchen all day. I keep hoping I will have a good enough day so I can. We will see. I love taking goodies around to everyone at Christmas. It is another one of those ways to see everyone you don't usually get to see all the time.

I have been tagged by my sister to name 5 things about my husband that people should know. So when I have a minute again later I will post those 5 things.

Your thank-you for people who leave comments flushed me out. I read your blog every time you post, and love you sunny spirit. I really admire your courage, and suspect that things are a whole lot harder than you talk about on your blog. I found you from Kim's blog. You really inspire me!

I am sure that your friends will understand if you don't come bearing goodies this Christmas. Maybe you should relax and take this Christmas off and enjoy those who bring you and your family yummy Christmas treats. I hope you and your sister have a great time hanging out with each other.

I think everyone misses the sun and it's warmth in the cold winter weather.

I can't wait to hear about your Dr. appt. tomorrow.

Has Kendal had her twins yet?

I agree with Chelsie... you can take a year off.

But if you are set on going, let me do the kitchen work for you and you can have the satisfaction of still delivering!

I love seeing you at church. I hope you always feel well enough to come. I also love the hats you've been wearing. They coordinate so well with your outfits. You look adorable in hats.

I can't wait to hear what Dr. Rado says either! I'm sure you'll inform us tomorrow.

I agree with Heather's great idea! I'll help make your goodies, too, and you can deliver them!

Any babies yet?

Ooohh, Heather's idea is great. I too would love to do the work in the kitchen. Please let us help you with this if it would bring you more holiday happiness.

I appreciate your candor about feeling blue somedays. You have more than you need to be blue about, but your attitude is amazing. And even if we're not commenting, we're thinking of you daily. You are an inspiration!

Hey!! What if you buy some chocolate and put a big ribbon on it and deliver a little chocolate around? That would be a easier idea! Winco has great bulk chocolate yummies! I enjoy seeing you...and your gives me courage to keep on going!

Ask Kamden to recite her "Santa Comes" poem and Her "Snowman" poem.
Once again...she steals the show as she has all of the words memorized and she does the actions so cute! Love it!

You are always in my prayers!

I have had a few people ask how my sister Kendall is doing. If she has had her babies she hasn't not had them yet. She looks uncomfortable but hasn't even dropped yet. Her doctor is going to give her a pill to start to induce her on Monday night at 10pm and then Tuesday morning induce her. So we are hoping Tristen and Gavin her twins will be her on Tuesday sometime. Thanks Amy I was going to ask for your email.

Your blogs are not boring! I love hearing about this journey that you are on. And I agree with Karen, I appreciate your honesty about your feelings throughout this whole thing. I can't wait to hear what Dr Rado says. It's too bad your appt can't be this morning, I'm sure you'll be anxious all day long.

Heather's idea is brilliant! I would be happy to help too. Let me know. You are welcome to assign me one of your favorite recipes, and I'll cook it up for you too ;)

I tried posting earlier but me and technology do not go hand in hand:) I have a great idea for your winter blues...Colbie Calliat is coming in concert to St. George in April...we will be sunny and warm and it is a great excuse for you to visit Bailey! (I wouldn't mind seeing you either) Would love to hear from you.

You put me to shame that as your Mother I ALWAYS read your blog each day but never comment. I love you so much it hurts! I am so proud of you and always have been. You set a fine example to me of a strong women. I loved when you told me Heavenly father would bless you if you go to church and face the germs when I was wanting you to stay safely at home. I am anxiously awaiting the results too! What a blessing blogs are! Love Mom

Sounds like another eventful weekend for you. Do you ever get a chance to just do nothing on the weekends? It seems like you always have something going on every weekend! I wish my weekends were as eventful as yours. Thinking about you and praying that the results of all the test are positive ones. Looking forward to lunch on Wednesday! I'll call ya!

Hey Rochelle,
I've been reading your blog since you started it. I don't think I've ever left a comment but I've always wanted to, just didn't know what to say. I went to scrap for a cure but you'd already left. I've been thankful for your blog especially lately. I found out that my mom has cancer right before Thanksgiving. There's a tennis ball sized tumor right behind her sternum. The pathology report says that the tumor spread from somewhere else but we can't seem to find any other places spots with cancer. We're waiting for a brain scan to come back right now and she will start Chemo. Chemo has always seemed really scary to me so when I read your blog it puts my mind at ease a bit. I hope my mom does as well as you have. I'm in awe at your courage and you've been our prayers. I'll be sending my mom your way. I just started a blog for her and want her to read yours so she can be encouraged. Merry Christmas and lots of Love,
Kim Wiberg
