Survivor Files: Two Years CANCER FREE!

I have been a stranger lately to the blog but believe me, things have been happening around here! I will jump back in here this week and share some things but I will tell you something...I have had a GREAT summer with my family! The pool, video games, day trips up north, reading programs, sitting on the swing, gardening with my Dawn (forcing the others to help a little), counseling at summer camp, cub scout day camp, coordinating sleepovers, a day at the fair and a three-day garage sale along with so many other things!

I am taking a little time out today to post this picture from two years ago today. I wasn't up for much activity.  In fact, this and the two days immediately following it were probably three of the most miserable days of my life. 
Right after surgery, settled into my hospital bed
The good news which made it ALL worthwhile is that I was CANCER FREE! The good news now is that two years later, I am well. I can finally say that the healing is complete and I am feeling pretty close to my old self. Praise God for His blessings of patience, comfort, friends to surround me and my family who held me up and came in and took care of life while I couldn't.

Since our garage sale a few weeks ago, I have been unpacking more boxes, getting on the kids to do their chores more enthusiastically and organizing room by room in my "new house". We have lived here for two years coming up in November, but for the first time, I have the energy and strength to take care of those places that have been piling up. I have been unloading boxes and have noticed often that they contain quite a few things that I forgot I even had. So yes, I have plenty of things to set aside for next year's garage sale ALREADY!

Today...ready to trim some bushes in the yard!
For now, I am thankful for my journey. I praise my God everyday for the timing of my diagnosis which I know was all His doing. It is a beautiful day outside and I am going to take advantage of it and get out there!
