All GOOD!

Wow...the last two days have been GOOD. Really GOOD! My husband has his big lung scan yesterday and it was CLEAR. Let me just type that again because it feels so good. It was CLEAR! The 24 hours leading up to the scan is a nightmare. Then you spend the day being scanned and waiting and waiting. Waiting in a little room just HOPING for good news. We were blessed with good news but know that we have a long way to go before we out of the woods. We feel like we have 3 more months of breathing room before the next scan. Being in the Cancer Centers just make me sick. My heart breaks for everyone I see as I know they have a story of someone they love fighting for their life as well. It is a club that you don't want to belong to but everyone there "gets it". They know how you battle with your mind to stay positive and fight!! They know how the diagnosis feels like a weight you can't get off you back. But despite all of those emotions I tried to be still and listen for God. (thanks Meredith for reminding me) I focus on God's presence as I know He is with me in the storms of life as well as the days where I can almost feel the calm again. THANK YOU to everyone who prayed for my hubby! My hubby is dealing with an aggressive type of cancer so this is nothing short of a miracle and example of God's greatness!! Man God is GOOD!! So from there NOTHING could bring me down and as luck would have planned I get to smile even BIGGER today. I was fortunate to get another unexpected treat to be selected for the 2012 Hood to Coast Nuun Team!!! Announcement TODAY...check it out here! I am honored and so excited to see old friends and meet new ones!!
I am heading into finals with some big papers in the next few weeks but then I plan to blog, blog, and blog (and run too) So much to catch up on! Thanks for being part of my journey!!
