Wow! Look at the beautiful weather we are having and the unusual amount of sunshine. I feel now that the sunshine is just for mom. What an incredible thing we have witnessed and been a part of. From the shock of the news and the hardship of recuperation to the rebirth of a person with the stem cell transplant.
Through it all, I have never once heard my mom question the why or the reason. She has always stood firm in her faith and her commitment to overcoming this new adversity in her life. It was hard, don’t get me wrong. The struggle and the pain were at times unbearable. But there was always the prayers and the encouraging words from friends and family.
She will be on her way to U of M tomorrow for a follow up visit with Dr. G. and then they will let her know when they plan on doing testing in the future to make sure she stays healthy and cancer free. Her hairs are starting to grow on her little head and she is eating better. Not as tired as she thought she would be, she still tries to nap on occasion, usually without any luck.
Thank you for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers.
