It has been several weeks since we posted any info, which is good news! There hasn’t been a whole lot going on except for Laurie continuing to get her strength back, slowly but surely, everyday. She still has some soreness in her ribs from the chest tubes, but we are told that is normal. After about a nine month stretch of surgeries and chemo, she is starting to feel like her old self again. In about a month she will be going to a health institute in south Florida where they give instruction on juicing and cooking vegan/organic food that actually tastes good. Other than that, it will be a matter of watching her very closely. She will be scanned every 3 months for the first couple of years. The surgeon told us that she has a 30% chance of a recurrence. Would rather look at it as a 70% chance of being cancer free.
We cannot find the words to express our gratitude for the support and prayers from so many people. We are truly blessed to have a network of such amazing friends and family. Please pray that God will continue to bring healing to Laurie so this disease can ultimately be defeated for good.
