Thanks again to everyone who has left kind words on this site or gone out of their way to do something nice for Beth. Grove's Groupies are truly the best!
Beth had her chemotherapy port put in last week. For those of us who haven't needed to learn what a chemotherapy port is, it's a small device that is implanted under your skin to allow easy access to your bloodstream during chemotherapy. Beth did great during the outpatient surgery, recovered nicely at home and is feeling pretty much back to normal. She has a few more tests to get through including an MRI and PET scan before starting chemo on July 31.
Beth also started trying on wigs. Not sure we've found the right one yet.
Just kidding! We love that Beth is keeping her sense of humor through this process.
Beth has taught us all many things in life, and one reoccurring lesson is that there is always a silver lining. Our silver lining with this diagnosis has been the absolute outpouring of love and support that our whole family has received. So thank you all, and keep the good thoughts and prayers coming.
