D's Video

During the molding of D's arm at UW Stout they videoed the process, afterwards they wanted to talk with Adam and I. First lets say, we were not prepared for this, not "dressed for video" or have any "words" prepared. But they were so wonderful to our family. So here is the video they made. We are sooooo glad we did all that!

We finally made it to Madison today and didn't need to cancel her appointment because of the weather. We had a re-check with her top notch surgical team...and her scar is doing great, she is healing beautifully (as if she could heal any other way!) and they felt no lumps in her armpits or neck---GREAT NEWS!! Then we had about 20 minutes before her next appointment so we stopped for a minute to visit with her Radiologist (whom we thankfully never needed to actually use--but she is a terrific lady!) She was glad to see D and see she was doing so great with the path we had chosen. Then we were off to see her oncologist. She had a chest x-ray and we headed home. After a quick lunch at Red Robin we were on the road again. We found out about 6pm that her x-ray was CLEAR!!! Our baby is still CANCER FREE!!! You truly cannot even imagine the joy in our hearts. God is so good!!!

Here's hoping that we do not need to cancel D's appointments AGAIN tomorrow!! It is snowing here now and I think Madison got hit pretty hard last night with ice and snow. It is supposed to get warmer today I think so I am praying it all melts and is good driving weather for us!

Here's a quick pic of D's new haircut, she looks so much older now. Her hair certainly needed to be cut (a little over 2 inches-gone!) and it makes it easier to get her kitty arm on. Here she is sitting on the floor vent in the kitchen enjoying the warm air on this chilly night.
