We are almost there. . . . . .

It has been a long time since I first announced that my husband Ron has been battling cancer.  We have had peaks and valleys along the way but here we are. . . . close to the end of the treatment journey.  

As of this very moment there is just one chemo left and eight radiation treatments.  In my opinion, he has done very well.  Once this stage is behind him, we move onto the "wait and see" stage which involves constant testing.  

It won't be for two full years before we know if Ron is cancer free.  But I guarantee you that no one here will be sitting on their hands waiting during that time and not working!  I have begun designing again and have great plans already in place for the new year.  We even have a new series that we will be announcing in the weeks ahead!  It will overlap the sheep by one month so we will actually be finishing in December with the sheep and starting with the new one.  

Living through and with cancer changes you.  Those of you have been there and done that know exactly what I mean.  I like to think that we have been forever changed for the good.  Thank you for sticking by us and helping us to see this through.  We both feel so blessed.

  3. Having been through cancer treatments with my family including my mom, my husband, and myself, I understand how you are feeling. I'm glad your dh's treatments are near the end. It will take a little while to gain strength back to where it was, but it will come. Prayers and thoughts for you all.

  20. Having gone through chemo and radiation and all the testing I feel I can understand what you have both been through - it's hard but you're through it. It will take some time for Ron to feel better and get his energy back - but it does come. So very glad to hear he is doing well and yes, the waiting is the hardest part, but you have so very many people praying for you and sending good thoughts. Take care
