kind of important
so in all the madness of renovating our new home, packing our old home, actually moving into the new house & then traveling for Thanksgiving, i kind of forgot something important. thank you, anna, for reminding me!
matt doesn't have cancer. anymore. he did, but not now.
he had a CT about 3 weeks ago, then we went to see his oncologist (who i think is very funny, but is also crazy smart & apparently mean to nurses). he said everything looks good- blood work will be done every 3 months for a while, but no more CT's until November 2010.
sounds okay to me! i was prepared for bad news. as much as you can really prepare yourself, i was waiting for the words "metastasized" and "aggressive." i was thinking of my questions: how many rounds of chemo, what are the cure rates at this stage, why didn't it work the first time. i was trying to figure out how you encourage someone who has already been through the hell of chemotherapy that they can do it again... and then how to keep myself & our girls alive as we walked toward more of the same hell we had this summer. i was not prepared for good news.
that made the good news just that more exciting! so i have NO idea why i never mentioned it on Facebook or the blog or sent a mass e-mail... i was thrilled, i am thrilled. we don't want to go there again, and i'm unbelievably thankful that we're not headed that way.
thank you for asking... and caring and loving us and praying. we love you all right back!
