Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Good Saturday Morning everyone, Hoping that your Christmas was lovely and shared with those you love. Michael and I were at my sister Molly's house in the morning for gift exchange with her family, my brother RAM and his family and Dad and Arra Mae. we had also been to Michael's mother's house on the way to Windermere. It was a fun time with all the family. And for those of you not in central Florida this week the weather was fabulous! I had chemo on Monday and finished radiation on Wednesday. Unfortunately that meant on Christmas I was dealing with some side effects. So we didn't stay for dinner at Dad's. Still it was a good day with family and that is what is important. I am doing much better over the last two days. Hoping to be able to go fishing tomorrow with Michael and get to use my new pole and spinning reel. Hope the New Year brings you each much joy and happiness! Love to all, Wendy

Quick update

just wanted to let you all know that the radiation treatments are going fine. I have had 6 of 15 fractions so far and there is definitely an improvement in the numbness in my arm. Yeah! I am getting treatment from a machine labeled OBI which feels very Star Wars, get it like Obiwan Kenobi! Haha! MTFBWY! Wendy

Overdue again!

hi all, Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. We were in the mountains of North Carolina with a big chunk of the family at Dad's was a great time including snow on Thanksgiving. Some of the crew had their first experience with the cold stuff. It was so fun to see teens playing and throwing snow balls! Michael hiked the hill behind the house with dogs in tow, while I stayed indoors mostly cooking for the crew. But I could be sure of staying warm! One of our furry kids, Maggie had her first encounter with a skunk the first night we got there. Thankfully the barn is rigged with warm water in the wash stall! Health update: I have had some new rumors show up on my spine above the previous ones. The location is actually good as it means that they can be treated with radiation which resolves them much quicker. If you will pray that the treatments focus just on the rumors and that all the other tissues around them are protected. I have absolute confidence in the folks here at UF Health Cancer Center but appreciate the Lord's healing hand on this even more. Clarifying that would be tumors not rumors on my spine! Ha ha! Anyway all my love to you and hope you have an anticipatory Advent Season followed by a Joyful Cheistmas! Wendy
