What a Week!

We just had the BEST week ever! Stew, my husband, had his 12th chemo treatment on February 27th. Here’s a little background on our journey the past 7 months! He had his follow up PET scan this past Tuesday, March 25th. Then, on the 27th, we went to see Dr. Saylors to find out the test results.

I was perfectly fine up until that morning; I slept like a baby. But, right before our visit, I was SO anxious! I was visibly shaking, and my heart was racing. Stew was as cool as a cucumber! Apparently, I had enough nerves for the two of us.

We sat in the room and Joanna, our PA, walked in. She had a big smile on her face and started asking about Turner and our plans for the weekend. I told her she was killing me! Then, she said the words we’ve been waiting to hear… STEW’S CANCER FREE!!! I burst out into tears (I should have learned not to wear makeup to their office by now) and hugged her. Then she walked out to get Dr. Saylors, and I ran over to give Stew a giant hug! We were SOOOO excited!

That afternoon, Stew’s parents got into town from NJ. It was just coincidence that they planned their visit the same weekend we would find out his test results! It was truly a weekend of celebrating! Well, we would have celebrated more if Stew wasn’t fighting a cold and Turner was getting 4 molars at once. But, we still made the best of it, snot and all!

Yesterday, we had a BIG party. We had about 40 people over to the house for a “We Kicked Cancer’s Ass” BBQ. It was so much fun. Everyone was happy and so excited for us! I couldn’t believe everyone who showed up to support us. It was truly humbling! I didn’t take a single picture, because I was too busy talking to everyone. BUT, my mother-in-law did. So hopefully I’ll get to steal some from her to share! But, for now, I’m sending you off with smiles from my little munchkin. Happy Monday!
