3.5 Years!

Well, it was a big day yesterday!  I graduated to 6 month scans and finished my last treatment!  I have to be honest, it is definitely bittersweet.  On one hand, I'm happy to not have to go back every 3 months (which is what I've been doing for almost 4 years) and I'm also grateful to be done with treatment (I'm sure my insurance company will be even more grateful!).  However, on the other hand, I'm also a little nervous about going so long in between scans especially because I know firsthand how quickly this disease can change.
At the end of the day, I have to push my fears and doubts aside and trust the process and more importantly, trust in my Heavenly Father, who I know has a plan for me.  It was a joyous day to celebrate continued health, remission, and good news with my parents, my friend Courtney, and the doctor and nurses!
I love these nurses.  They go above and beyond to care for their patients and I always look forward to seeing them!

My good friend, Courtney came with me to SF this time.  Just for the day!  While my mom and I were at doctor's appointments, she was wandering the city taking it all in!  We were able to catch up after I was done, grab lunch and go see the Palace of Fine Arts.

My mom, my hero!  She has been with me at almost every doctor appointment, treatment, scan, and hospital stay.  I honestly don't know what I would've done these past few years with out my parents support.  It has been critical to have them with me, especially since my hubbie has stayed at home to hold the fort down.  What a crazy journey this has been, but we have been beyond blessed along the way.
