Nov. 4 week 29 Cancer free!

So Nov. Fourth was my last treatment I'm officially done. On my last one we took the whole family. We really wanted the boys to see what i've been doing this whole time. We took a thank you cake and made it a fun day. They really enjoyed it. I've been done for three weeks now and it feels amazing. I could't ask for better timing either right before the holidays. I'm still low on energy and I'm super weak still but I feel amazing. Mentally not getting sick all the time has really done wonders for me. I'm feeling so good and so blessed I didn't have to have the hysterectomy so I'm done with everything. It feels so good to be a mom again. My mom left right before my last treatment I'm so grateful for all she did to help and I couldn't have done it without her. Now that I'm on my own it's super hard but it is also so wonderful. It's like I have my identity back , I'm good for something now. It just feels so good to be able to take care of my family, it's such a blessing. Looking back at the last seven months I realise how much help I got from my heavenly father. I think that's the real lesson in all trials when you look back and know you didn't survive that on your own because you know your not strong enough. It makes you realise that your Father in Heaven walked that path with you and you might have felt alone but you never were. I'm so grateful for my husband I couldn't have done what he did. He was so patient and kind and took amazing care of me. He was the one shoulder I could cry on and I turned to him often. I'm really blessed to have such amazing people in my life. Thank you all for your prayers I hope you relies how much it means to me and how much ourFather has blessed me because of you.
