I'm DONE!! Radiation and chemotherapy are a thing of the past!
It was a super special morning! The kids are on vacation this week and Shaun cleared his schedule for the morning so we were all able to go to my 8:30 AM appointment (except Ray who slept in from a late night). Amy met us there too. Once I was done with the treatment and paperwork, the nurses gathered around while the kids rang the bell.
Little did I know, there was a huge surprise waiting for me, right there in the parking lot of the cancer center!
Amy and Meg did a great job taking pictures...it was so emotional and special and fun.
This guy has carried such a heavy load. I love him so.
This girl. She pulled it all together. She's been with me from the very first. The morning of the fateful colonoscopy, she met me in this very same parking lot to pray over me. She's the kind of friend who knows what you need before you do and she's got a huge, generous heart. I love you, Ame!
Next is a break. Its going to take 3-4 weeks for the pain and fatigue to subside so I'll continue to lay low and heal. Or at least I'll have good intentions of laying low. Sometime around the middle of May we'll do some testing. The surgeon will review the results and determine whether to do surgery or not. Our prayer is that the tumor is gone and no surgery is necessary.
Thank you for walking this journey with us thus far. That seven months later you are still involved, still caring, still following our story means so much. We're closer than we've ever been!
