Your prayers worked!!!

Sheri and Zhootie cropped

I had the post-chemo mammogram Wednesday and they said It’s CLEAR!!!  No tumors, no cancer showing up!!!  The chemo did it’s job!!!  The doctor had me come over and view the before and after films.  He was so excited to tell me the news.  And the nurse hugged me and said this “very rarely happens” that the chemo completely takes it away!!!

Mickey told me Wednesday morning that he thought they would say that the cancer was gone.  I told him not to even get his hopes up like that.  That I knew it had shrunk it, but it couldn’t be Gone… I felt like he was setting himself up for a huge letdown.  When I got out to the car and called him to tell him the news he screamed YES!!!!!  then, I Told You So!!! God, I love him.  Couldn’t have done this without my Mickey.

We still meet with the surgeon and my oncologist next Thursday the 18th.  I think they will still do the surgery, but won’t know for sure until after that appointment.

Remember the picture above?  That’s the owl my great-niece made for me at Build a Bear Workshops.  She went with me to chemo and she’s wearing a wig too!

Thank you again for all the prayers and well wishes.  I could feel every bit of good energy you were sending me!  You’ll never know how it made me feel to know that all of you were praying for me and wishing good things for me.  It almost overwhelms me to think about it.  Don’t stop yet, though!!!  LOL

Have a great weekend.  I know we are going to!!!

Oh Sheri...........
That is the prettiest picture, of you, I have ever seen!!! It is simply BOOTIFUL!!!! You have great skin!!!! But it's the little inner Sheri that I love. I am so very, very proud of you. And so proud of Mickey being the doll-baby-supportive-husband that he is. I swear, if I ever meet him.............I'm planting a big one on his cheek.
I am to thankful and so proud of you - I don't know what to do. Your post made me tear up too. What a dang bunch of softies we are.
Remember..............."Let Go Let God" . It works every time. Takes a little practice....but you can do it. I knew your angels were all closeby you. So very happy foy and for your whole extended family.

Sheri, this is FANTASTIC news. I am so, so pleased for you and you look absolutely beautiful in your photograph. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you meet with the oncologist, but, for the moment, bask in the joy of this and know the richness of God's healing power. May you and Mickey continue to be blessed and be a blessing to others. My love to you. xx

Hi Sheri,
I just came over to say Hi and to thank you for becoming a follower and what greets me? GREAT NEWS! I'm truly happy for you. You now, my youngest sister was diagnosed with breast cancer about a year ago. She went through chemo and radiation and praise God she is cancer free. Please know that you have one more person praying for you. Hope that all goes well at your next appointment. Happy Monday.
