All is Well
We had Sirri's full body scan on Thursday and it came back ALL CLEAR! She is cancer free. What a blessing and a comfort. We were able to come home on Thursday afternoon and haven't looked back much since.
Sirri is recovering extremely well. Her surgery "holes" and incisions are healing very nicely and don't cause her much pain at all any more. She tired very easily for the first few days and looked pretty pail but both her strength and color are coming back. She does "milk it" every once in a while if she needs a reason to get Connor in trouble. "Owwww. You hurt my owies, Connor." (When he didn't even touch her!) Or, "Connor, you have to be careful with me." Oh well. After all she has been through she can work the system for a few more days!
We can't begin to explain how thankful and blessed Kendon and I feel that this situation turned out the way that it did. Like Dr. Barnette said, "two months from now, this would have been a completely different story." We know that Heavenly Father was watching over and protecting our little family. We are so thankful for the peace that we were able to feel through this experience. We are so grateful for all the prayers that were said in our behalf. We know that we have been part of and witnessed a miracle.
