The Miracle we prayed for!

The past few days have been hectic with our 2nd school term starting and the project I'm working on in the final days before it has to be handed in, but I just want to take the time and tell you the most wonderful news.

My mom had her latest scans on Thursday afternoon, and there is not a sign of cancer anywhere in her body! Isn't that totally out of this world? God is absolutely awesome.

I don't think it has hit me yet, we've been much calmer about the news than I ever expected. It doesn't lessen the feeling of relief though, I just think it's going to take some time for the truth to settle in and shake us up with joy!

Her previous scans, early in February, showed the tumors were much smaller than when they were first noticed, but there were some troubling marks on the bones of her skull. The doctor did extra tests and told her that he suspects it arthritis. That might be what is keeping us back from going on all out of our skins because of the news. I know it sounds skeptical, but I don't trust it all that much. She also has one more chemo on Tuesday, and then regular check-ups during the next few months. Will keep you updated!

Thanks SO much for all your comments on my previous post, I haven't had time to sit still at the pc to visit all your blogs, but this week it should go easier to have some "me" time. :)

UPDATE - 27/10/2010:
So many things has happened since I wrote this post. The short version is that both my mom and dad have passed away since then. My dad died 5 months after his lung cancer was diagnosed - on Easter Sunday morning, 12 April 2009. My mom passed away during the night of Easter Sunday the following year, 51 weeks after my dad. I miss them something terribly, but their legacy lives on.

100th Post & Blogoversary

I didn't plan it this way, it just happened. Well not really "just happened", but I've been thinking about my 100th post, feeling bad about the negative one (#99) I left up for so long. My apologies for that. When I realized my blogoversary was close, I didn't post, and waited till they coincided.

Life hasn't been all that bad since I last posted. Good and then not so good things happened since, but all in all they turned out good. Will tell you more about them later this week.

I'm not going to reminisce about the past year, or refer back to topics discussed in the previous 99 posts. This I do know: I'm happy about the changes in my life that were a result of my starting to write about my Infertility. The people I met through this blog has enriched my life in a way I never expected, and I'm so grateful for that.

Thanks for being there during this first year of my blog. Hopefully it will catch it's second breath and carry on for some time to come! :)
