Amanda had her two year remission date, and I didn't even notice until a few days later. I never anticipated we could move on with our life and actually forget for a moment about cancer! Amanda is doing so well. Fatigue, headaches, joint pain, and social adjustments are lingering, but hey, doesn't that describe most of us anyway? She's turning into a beautiful young woman and brings a smile to the faces in our home every day. I'm in awe with how blessed we are to have her a part of our life.
I just read a quote by Richard G. Scott, "Some people are like rocks thrown into a sea of problems. They are drowned by them. Be a cork. When submerged in a problem, fight to be free to bob up." Cancer is a rock - there is no way around it. There is no way to avoid being submerged. But there is a way to avoid getting stuck. Eventually you can bob up again! Our family has. It takes time, prayer, and a lot of patience. But it is obtainable!
I thought I'd close this blog after Make a Wish. But we are not done with our journey yet. Once Amanda has hit her 5 year remission she will be "cured." Every story has an ending - we're not to ours just yet...
