For 9 days I had two different friends fly in and help care for me while I was still down. It was so nice to have close friends come and help me.
Then last weekend things in my life began to really change.
Thurs night - first full night of sleep in 4 weeks. I felt like a new person when I woke up.
Fri - I went to my work Christmas party in the afternoon. It was so good to see my friends and colleagues.
Sat - I drove the car into Sherwood, did a few returns to Walmart and Target and then drove home. Freedom!!
Sun - went to our church in the morning and to a different church in the evening. A fabulous day.
Mon - Ok, I overdid it last weekend but a sweet friend gave up part of her day off and drove me to a dr. appt.
Tues - BEST NEWS EVER!!! My oncologist and my radiation oncologist agreed that I will NOT be doing radiation on the spot on the sternum. Instead they will do an MRI every 4 months for the first year and continue to watch it. As long as it stays the same size, they will just observe it. SECOND PIECE of good news is that my tissue expansion is finished! I've been cleared to go back to work Jan 2 and I will
I'm only taking ibuprofen and have driven the car two days in a row. I still haven't cooked, but I I have run some Christmas errands.
Again, I can't say thank you enough to all my family and friends! All of the help and prayers my family and I have received has been unexpected and we are VERY VERY thankful!
