I'm back!

Good morning everyone. Well, I'm finally going to go back to work. Last week was a real zinger and it really knocked me back a few steps. Aside from the physical ailments of a concussion and several muscle spasms along w/cervical and hip sprains, I think it got me emotionally, too. Might I recommend NEVER getting hit by a GMC truck - it hurts like hell.

I did find myself in tears a few times but I am going to be ok. It was just several things, the cancer, the hit by a car thing, my battery going dead in my car, etc., a list of things that just overwhelmed me. BUT, I'm getting back to what can be considered normal - at least mentally....if that's

I'm still sore and bruised from the hit, but I feel a little stronger. I came in to work today knowing that that will help me feel better too. I do love my job, that's for sure. And I need to psyche myself up for next week's chemo session....

Anyway, thanks so much for all of your support. You continue to lift me up - especially when I have those down moments. I am eternally grateful.


  1. Yay! Glad you are better and back to work.

  2. you are an inspiration!

  3. Arla, Despite everything that has happened over the past couple of weeks.... I know the battery thing made you cry the most.... your baby out of commission for even a moment.. OH MY!! Don't fret girlfriend.. that is an easy fix!! Keep fighting... Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
    Your Friend, Donna
