From Sarah: Darren, Genevieve and I wanted to thank all of the people that have been thinking of us, praying for us and shown us so much love over the last seven months. Not to mention the unbelievable generosity from so many. We will never have the words to express our gratitude.
Darren is back to work in a new position that does not require power tools and fork lifts :) He loves his new job and is eternally thankful to his employer, Five Star Fab and Fixture, for keeping him as an employee for the months that he was unable to work and then finding him a position that was better suited for him at this point in his life. He is so grateful to be back on his feet and realizes how incredibly lucky he is to be here.
We found out on February 21st that Genevieve is in remission. She had her port removed today at UVA. She will continue to have labs and scans done, but her doctors feel good about her future. She has been amazing through all of this. Her spirit never dimmed and her spunk kept her fighting. I have learned so much from my little girl. Although she would tell you that she is a boy now because she has hair like Daddy's.
I am back to teaching my second graders. I have taught for Bedford County for eleven years and have always known it was the place for me. However, now it is more than that. The school system, teachers, students and families in the community have become family to me.
The support we have received has been on a level I could never have imagined. I will never forget all that has been done for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Genevieve got her Port out!!!
