Update on Mary: A Break From the C-word

For the next two weeks Mom does not have any medical appointments, tests, or anything else related to fighting cancer, because they are giving her body some time to recover from radiation. Thus, we have decided to take a break from cancer. We aren't talking about it. When someone brings it up, we tease them about breaking the moratorium. Mom is taking it easy, she is taking her medication (obviously), and she caring for her body the way she needs to, but otherwise we are basically pretending that cancer hasn't invaded our lives.

For the last year Mom, Dad, and the rest of us have had our lives consumed by cancer. We're tired, and we need a break. We need some normal. So, if you don't see an update in the next week to ten days, assume that all is well. I will be posting only if something goes wrong and needs extra prayer. In the meantime, please continue to pray that the cancer would not spread during this rest period (a big danger), and that the radiation would succeed in destroying her tumor. Thank you all for your prayers and continuing to stand alongside us. Have a very happy Easter! He is risen!
