The sweetest words ever spoken are, quite possibly, “you are cancer free!”
Mom had her post-op appointment today and the news was so very good. The surgery got all the cancer. She is clean as a whistle. Good to go. No chemo. No radiation. Cancer free!
We are doing the happiest of happy dances here today. And she is doing great. She’s been tending to her roses and cheering at the matched horse race and the mutton bustin. She probably should take it a little bit slower but there’s no telling her that. Gosh it feels good to breath deep again!
And she went out and bought a celebratory hat just because she could.
But at the same time that we celebrate our good news, we are hoping and praying with all our hearts that those who haven’t heard those words yet, will hear them soon. And our hearts and love go out to those who never got the chance to hear them.
Our prayers and love go out to all families touched by cancer and to the doctors and nurses who care for them.
