Okay. Maybe I Don't Hate Chemo.

Remember this depressing post  where I declared that I hate chemo?  Well I suppose I don't actually hate it.  I mean, it did its job.  My husband is in remission!!!!  He posted more details here, but I just wanted to stop in (I know- it's been quiet lately) to say Thank the Lord! Hallelujah!  The tumor is gone!  He still has 3 treatments and 2-3 months of its side effects.  And that still stinks.  BUT the perspective you get when you know it's working is priceless.  I'm so thankful.
moments after getting the news!
Other cancer news: During our church service Sunday, my father in law and a good friend shaved their heads on stage in order to surprise us with this announcement:

It was crazy. It was hilarious. It was shocking!  We are so honored and lucky to be a part of an amazing family and church family.  Besides our family, this benefit will go toward the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Joe has found such value in that organization that it will always hold a place in our hearts.  From monetary assistance, to setting you up with a survivor to chat through experiences, they really are helpful.  If anyone local is interested in details let me know and I'll make sure you get them.
Joe finishing the job.
Like Father, like son.
No more news for now!  Next week I'll be sharing Genevieve's room.  For now, it's time to celebrate.

    Praying for you and hubby with the upcoming treatments.
    By the way, I think your hubby looks great bald! Not all men can carry that off, but he does.
