The new year has begun and so have Elena's treatments. She went for a clinic visit yesterday and received two types of chemo in her port and got the PEG shots in both legs. What a way to welcome in the new year! She did great! We thought it was going to be a quick in and out visit with just the IV chemo, but found out about the PEG when we saw the doctor. Elena was not too thrilled about this but handled the news, and the shots, like a champ.
We celebrate the start of this new year with joy and hope for the future. We are encouraged by Elena's progress and know that every visit brings with it another step in the fulfillment of God's plan for our lives. Each day still has its struggles...questions of why and wanting everything to be normal again...but each day also holds promise and love. We have God's promise that he will never forsake us and a love for each other made possible because He first loved us. We are thankful for each new day given us and grateful for the many blessings continually showered upon us. Thank you for being a part of our lives and for sharing this journey with us.
We wish each of you a very blessed 2010!
"We love because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19
