It's been nearly a month since Chris left for the cancer treatment center. She was to be gone a week for diagnosis, but she decided to stay and receive treatment there. Two rounds of chemotherapy. I sent e-mails, a birthday card, and a hot pink pashmina --a series of one-way messages to let her know that she was in my thoughts.
After nearly three and a half weeks, Chris sent out an update. "Well, praise be to God because the PET scan showed that the cancer has NOT spread to any other part of the body at all. They were also able to re-assign the stage from a IV to III."
Praise Him indeed. This message was well worth the wait.
