It is hard to believe that is was only a year and 3 months ago that Anne was diagnosed with Cancer. It has been a long 15 months. The last 5 months have been exceptionally trying and tender. When Anne had her recurrence and was diagnosed with metastatic disease, our lives, which were already shaky from beating it the first time were turned upside down. Since then we have been working incredibly hard to help her recover, applying everything from the latest medical treatments to prayer and fasting to diet changes to some alternative treatments, however we have also been bracing ourselves for the worst case. Even as we did everything we could, we were blind to the effectiveness of our efforts. Anne’s energy has lagged and in many ways her suffering has increased over the 5 months. We were not sure if this was from a spread of the cancer or was a side effect of the chemo. Anne had tests last week and Tuesday we met with the oncologist who told us that Anne’s cancer is once again in remission and all the spots of cancer which were spreading quickly a few month ago, show no signs of life. This is the best possible news we could hear! All the suffering she is going through is working. We still have months of chemo to make sure it is gone and she has other side effects, but we are jumping for joy at the opportunity to continue to figure out our lives together and hopefully once again travel to far off places together.
