One down, one to go

Although it's smack dab in the middle of The Bachelorette (so I'm gonna make this short and sweet) I thought I'd let you know that today was a big day for me. I got my abdominal port removed. And even though it was surgery (yuck!) it was the good kind of surgery! I am happy to now be a one port woman.

While I'm thankful to have been able to get the abdominal chemo, and believe God hooked me up with a fabulous doctor who got me into a study for cutting edge ovarian cancer research... I'm soooo ready to get this thing outta me.

All went well. I'll have a few days of sore ribs. But in the scheme of things, that is a piece of cake. For a girl who was once scared of needles, I've come a long way. Thanks for the prayers.

So glad you've been able to 'reduce.' :) Kinda represents freedom, eh?

We so wanted to get to your celebration 7/9....however, we were at a wedding in PA. Thought of you often and were rejoicing in spirit :)

Could you share something with Steve? My Bill is turning 50 on 8/7. I set up a blog just with info for that occasion. It is If you two would paste that in your browser and look it over. I'd love to have you participate in one way or another. Check out the tabs to see the ways :)

Love and hugs to you both....
