The RESULTS are IN!!!!

That's right the results are in and I am still cancer free. I have to go back in for 3 more tests in about 3 weeks but the doctor didn't find any remaining thyroid cells in my neck at this time.


I am super excited.

It never fails. Everytime I am about to be retested I start to freak. I am usually super emotional the week before. Mostly out of FEAR I think. But once I heard the results I was good to go. time to exhale.

Thanks for all your prayers!

So it has now been over 1 year since I have been cancer free.
EXCITING isn't it!!!!!

I can't help but blast a huge smile across my face every time I say "cancer free".

two little words that can brighten my day .... or my thoughts... anytime.

I have my one year check up on Friday so -- fingers crossed and sending up prayers that my status remains the same.

God is so AMAZING!

Barack Obama

The president elect is Barack Obama. I am sure this isn't breaking news as most of us heard it last night. But I had to blog about how excited I was for Noah. He really wanted Mr. Obama to win. Now, whether I agree with him or not is not the issue. We try not to sway our children either way but raise them to be independent critical thinkers. I must say the passion that Noah had about Barack was amazing. He was a little confused about his position on the war. I think Noah's biggest concern these days is global warming. He is so passionate about animals - and just when I think he can't become anymore engulfed in them he surprises me.

After leaving Target last night while still in the car Noah yells from the back seat

"Vote Barack Obama - Save the Polar Bears"

I can't wait until he is 18 and can exercise his right to vote - it truly is a privilege to live in this great country.
