Whole-hearted Thanksgiving!!!

I'M DONE - I'm done with surgery, with chemotherapy, and with radiation! I am finished 5 weeks of radiation and it really did go very well. I can't believe it! By the grace of God I have completed the first 6 months of this journey with breast cancer. What will I do with a whole, uninterrupted day tomorrow? No appointments at the cancer clinic or the hospital for the next 6 weeks - how glorious!!! Yes, I feel so good and now I'm going to live downstairs in my cool basement. My car said it was 40 degrees as we were coming home just now.
Oh, it's just so good to be finished all the "cancer clinic-hospital" stuff. Thank you to all of you for being on this journey with me and praying diligently and encouraging and supporting me. I will continue to blog and give you updates on how things are going. But for now, the hard stuff, I hope, is over! Thank you, Lord, thank you for Your loving care!

Grateful, truly grateful,
