Good News

So, last week they did a whole body scan on mom, the cancer has NOT spread to any additional lymph nodes. The cancer has grown some while she was in the hospital, but only a little bit and not more than it was originally.

She is eating regular food now, and while she gets tired very easily, she is doing stuff around the house and helping the best she can. She and dad are also walking to the post office most days, so she's getting lots of good exercise.

They started chemo again yesterday, at the Small Regional Hospital she was initially going to. All of her doctors got together, and since the scan showed such good results, they decided that moving her to a Large Cancer Hospital was not necessary at this point. That's good, it makes going in for chemo easier, and cheaper.

Thank you everyone for all of the prayers and support. God has indeed answered our prayers, and given us the gift of Time. Time to make more memories, take more pictures, enjoy each other's company. This happened so suddenly. I knew academically that tragic things can happen suddenly, but I didn't know it personally. Now I know, how little time we really do have, and how much life can change overnight.

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of time, family, and friends. Amen
