We had a blast yesterday at an Astros' game with our second mom, Ms. Tammy. We then got to hang out and have dinner together before we had to leave. I love having good quality time with the Stanfills. It always makes the trip so much better.

Dr. Babiera and Dr. Strom
I met with my surgery oncologist (Dr. Babiera) on Wednesday and she basically just examined me. She is so encouraging, kind, and funny. I always love seeing her. (Even if we did have to wait for several hours:))

|This was yesterday's appointment as Dr. Babiera was examining me. I didn't know the paparazzi (AKA Josh) was snapping pics|
|This is a picture I took with Dr. Litton shortly after|
I finished chemo.
|As Dr. Babiera was finishing up with me, we ran into my oncologist, Dr. Litton (I'll see her in August) and got to visit a little bit. A treat to have them both together!|
I am reminded that this problem is NOTHING in comparison of what could be, but it has been a struggle.
So, Dr. Babiera ordered a doppler ultrasound to make sure that my blood vessels were clear, and they were! Praise God! So I will just continue on with physical therapy to try and help my lymphedema. Please please pray it goes away! I am trying to build my faith that it will.
This morning I had an appointment with my radiation oncologist, Dr. Strom. His main objective was to go over my blood work and my X-ray and to examine me. My blood work and X-ray were perfect!

For now, I am good with the ugly veins:) But, when I get to the place I want to address them, I am glad to know that is an option. Dr. Strom is wonderful as usual. He is so kind and affectionate, and I love that. You can tell he really, truly cares.
Check-ups are Still Difficult
I don't know if that will ever go away. But, in a way I am thankful for it. It reminds me that these good appointments should not be taken lightly.
Oh, the people that expect a good appointment and leave with devastating news. I literally cannot imagine.
So, I won't ever stop being amazed. I won't ever stop remembering what God's done. I won't ever stop telling people what He did for me.
I am healed. I am whole. What I've proclaimed from the beginning I won't ever stop proclaiming, in Jesus' name.
Thank you for praying me through,
