As some of you know, my husband John has been through the wringer health-wise these last couple of years; two heart surgeries, after which complications followed, then a recurrence of non-hodgkins lymphoma, and subsequent radiation therapy at Temple University hospital.
Well, yesterday was his post-treatment follow up appointment, and while all this needs to be confirmed by the regular oncologist and further blood tests, the radiation oncologist told us yesterday it "appears to be" a full remission!!
Following the appointment, John was sideswiped by a truck while driving on the PA turnpike, but was uninjured (and a highway patrolman caught up with the driver, who kept on going!) I am so thankful no one was hurt.
So you see, I feel doubly blessed today. And while financial circumstances preclude the purchase of birthday gifts around here, I feel as though I've been presented with the best gift in the world - time with my husband, and best friend!
I am truly blessed. ♥
