When I come to the end of my rope, God is there to take over. “…For He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Hebrews 13:5

That was given to me last weekend by Secret Pal (who ever you are?). With that and numerous amounts of cards, wishes, prayers and hang in theres, I am doing much better. Just one of those weeks I had. I just want to thank all of you who helped get out of the rut I was in.

I finished radiation last Friday. It was a little bittersweet. You get so use to seeing all the people that when you leave it is a weird feeling. You are so happy to be done and you hope you never have to do it again but the people are amazing at the Cancer Care Center and it was a little sad to know that their role in your life is over.

I am starting to experience some more blistering and redness in my skin. This week the sores are about a half dollar size. I called the doc and they have changed my cream. This must be applied to the area twice a day. She also recommended that I only wear a white t-shirt to help decrease the amount of irritation. I was able to do this until the weather got nice. Now that I can’t really wear a sweater or sweatshirt over the t-shirt I am once again wearing my fake one. I looked in the mirror today and it was sticking out and I looked really lopsided. I am sure I notice it more than anyone else. (I hope!)

On a more personal/family note, we took Campbell to kindergarten round up. Seems like yesterday she was just born and Todd and I were trying to figure what to do with her. Also, the youth group that Todd and I led is performing the Sunrise Service at our Church. Excited for this year’s play…CSI: Jerusalem.

Have a wonderful Easter!!

I know there are still some bumpy roads ahead, but wow!

I hope when you sit back and think about what you went through, you realize that you (and your amazing fam) are the true definitions of the word survivor.

Congratulations Melissa.

Happy Easter!
