Bullseye

We had some really great news today. Even though its what we expected, it felt SO good to hear that there was no cancer in the lymph nodes they took out on Tuesday.

So there is no visible cancer in the body. He said the treatments they do next will be to help the body fight off any cancer cells that are floating around the body. Im going to enjoy my weeks before I have to worry about that.

Thanks for all your love and prayers.

I would think that such awesome news would help get through the bad days of the treatment because you can imaging that you're kicking the cancer's trash rather than the other way around.

Looks like we got what we were shooting for. I'm glad Sam was wrong on this one.

That's great news! Just take the therapy a day at a time when the time comes. After your hospital stay, I am sure you know you can take anything for a day. The days come and go, your family is forever.

Alisa, let me be the [insert correct ordinal number here] to congratulate you on that spectacular news (I can't say first because I assume others have done it and they haven't been approved)! I have this feeling that everything is going to be okay. Can you receive revelation for your sister?

YEAH!!! Congrats on the good news! I'm so happy. I was expecting good results too. SO glad I'm not disappointed! Other good news... we close at 0730 tomorrow. I left my old house for the last time tonight. I have to admit that I'm a little sad about it! But it is dang cute, and the next owners BETTER treat it nice, OR ELSE!
