She's the strongest woman I know!!
I am so excited and proud to say that mom has made huge strides in her health and overall outlook! She is now on a daily pill form of chemotherapy and has been responding great to it. Her wound is healing more and more every day and she will soon be able to get rid of the wound-vac (no one is more excited about that than her!).
She is on a month to month checkup routine with her doctor to do blood work and see how her body is responding to the treatments. She is not out of the woods by any means but she takes every day with a new found appreciation and will continue to fight. Her first checkup is this coming Thursday and I am confident it will be nothing but good news.
She is looking great and feeling great and has even started exercising again! I never doubted the fact that she would give this cancer hell; she is entirely too strong mentally and physically. Words cannot describe the pride we all feel just to be associated with such an amazing person. I am the luckiest one because she helped make me who I am today; She is MY mother!
Below is a recent picture of her and Julia, a family friend who recently donated her hair to "Locks of Love" in mom's honor. It is because of people like her and all of you that mom can continue to stay strong and fight this every day. Please continue to support her in any way you can; we appreciate every prayer, every donation, every card, every delivery of flowers, every message, every phone call"¦
We all love you so much! Go HAM mama!! haha
