June 8, 2011 will be forever etched in my heart!

YES, it's TRUE! Shout it from the Mountain Tops! Dr.Whitcomb announced today that my pathology report came clean. NO MORE CANCER! I honestly cannot describe the weight lifted off my heart, my life, my being when I heard those words. I started to tear up and if I could I would have danced. I could have kissed the doctor but I chose not too!

That kiss is reserved for Mark! (Can't wait to see you Sunday!)

So what is next?... Every six months for the next 3 years I travel to see Dr. Whitcomb (in Hawaii... oh darn!) for a re-eval. Every three months in between I have to see Dr. Coats in Okinawa. After the first 3 years I will then see my ob/gyn, Dr. Coats, twice a year. If I am completely clean for 5 years I am FREE! 100% Cancer Free! Oh what a feelin'!

What a wonderful God we serve. Thank you Lord for your blessings and your provision! WOW!

Oh Yeah... I also got my staples out. Now I have super glue and steri strips... I am totally on the road to recovery now. Can't wait to see my kiddos and my amazing husband!

Oh, Colleen! Praise God! I've been thinking about you and praying all day... and I've been checking for updates over and over. I've played the waiting game before, and I've prayed that your wait would end in rejoicing and celebration!!!! Wonderful news! I'm so very happy for you!

Much love to you, Colleen. That is elating news. Now, strength to get through the next five years. Have you any major changes planned in approaching the rest of your life, now that you've been declared cancer-free?
