Liver Resection!

Tomorrow will begin what has been described as the most difficult part of my colon cancer journey.  I will undergo my liver resection to remove 4 tumors that have invaded my otherwise healthy looking liver.  I am to expect to be in the hospital for 7-10 days and a recovery period lasting 6-8 weeks.  While I am nervous for what lies ahead I am also looking forward to getting this over with!  It will be a relief to have these cancerous tumors completely removed from my body so chemo after can get the microscopic cancer cells invading my blood stream.  What a relief that will be!

I have thoroughly enjoyed a full month of no chemotherapy. I have felt so great and have just enjoyed spending time with the girls.  We have been to the beach, Mackinac Island, lounging by the pool and of course, going to the new outlet mall.  I have been blessed to share this summer with them.  We have raised such independent, strong, fun girls!

Please keep our family in your prayers this week.  Reese will start 5th grade and Logan 4th.  They are nervous about this week as well but know this is just another step in mom's cancer fight!

I am giving Kyle control over my Facebook tomorrow so he can post updates.

Love to all!

God is Good!
