I live in a 100 year old home in Erieville. My favorite hobby is work on that old house and it keeps me busy. This year, I put on a new porch floor and fixed the siding outside and put in a new floor upstairs. It was too much for me to tackle, but usually I try and do my own work with some help from friends and family. I am a single Mom with three beautiful children. They are all country music fans. I have been in radio for many years and in fact, my mother was a radio personality. I guess that is where I get it from. I get a real kick out of doing charity work and attend many of the events here in CNY. I would have to say that the CMA win was the high point in my career. It just doesn't get any better than that and it is thanks to you who listen to us and support us each and every morning. It wouldn't have happened without you. In my mind, it was a win for Central New York. I love working with Tom Owens. We have quickly become best friends.

So, Mom comes out to the house on Sunday and I had a bite on my arm. I really didn't know where it came from. I thought it might be a mosquito bite. I asked Mom to get some antibiotic cream. She does and then we started having a disagreement. She insisted that I go into the emergency room and get it checked out. Finally I caved and went. When we get there, it seemed like the bite was growing before my eyes. I had long streaks down my arm and the bite was getting gross. We will just leave it at that. All of a sudden I am admitted to the hospital. I couldn't believe it. I thought I would get some pills and leave. I felt kind of dumb being there and then boom...I am in a hospital bed from Sunday until Tuesday in the Oncology Unit. I had no idea that chemotherapy really destroyed my immune system that bad, but it does. I was told that this is normal to be admitted to the hospital for any little thing during chemo, so something like that might happen again. I wish I knew ahead of time, as I started getting pretty scared. No chemo this week until antibiotics kick the bug bites butt. Life is so strange when you are being treated for cancer. - Becky
