I sure hope there are at least a few people out there who still check on my blog from time to time. I can't believe how long it's been since I posted! But up until just a few weeks ago, I couldn't knit, couldn't type, couldn't use my left hand/arm to do anything! Big News #1 is knitting. I am KNITTING again. I'm really slow and can only knit about an hour at a time, nut have managed to make TWO pairs of slipper socks. I want to try the DW washclothes next and see if I can handle the slip stitch.
Big News #2 (which should probably be #1). I had my "every two months MRI" done on Monday. Saw drs yesterday - the news:
I AM CANCER-FREE!!
Two months ago, my neuro surgeon was asking me to consider another brain operation to help improve my quality of life. Well actually to make me more comfortable in the short time (18 months) he thought I had left.
Yesterday, he ccould hardly believe it. He tested my legs, my arms, my hands, my strength, my dexterity and after each test his eyes would get a little bigger and his eyebrows arch a little higher (towards the end you couldn't see his eyebrows at all). I kept saying God had healed me (because He did) and my dr finally admitted it was a miracle. So I'm giving God all the credit though I recognize the crucial roles my drs played.
Cancer-free, cancer-free - two and a half years doing the cancer tango, not one of my drs thought I would survive. Praise God! Not only will I survive, I have big plans.
At any rate, I'm still stuck in a wheelchair for the moment but don't expect that to last much longer. I am still typing with one finger so this will be short.
If you have a question or want more details, just give me a call or send me an email. CANCER-FREE!!!
