Just wanted to give a quick update on what’s been going on with The Dude and me for those of you who know my story.
My sweetheart is still undergoing chemo. He is tired and sick on some days but he keeps pressing on. He is working and traveling as usual for his job. You would never know what he has been going through. That's my trooper man! I try to slow him down but the docs say if he feels well enough to do those things then let him. He is doing fine.
On 2/7 he went in for a treatment. At the end of his session he went to get his test results which he gets with each treatment. When he walked into his room he saw ALL of his doctors and turned to walk out telling them he didn't want to hear what they had to say. One doctor said, “Even if your levels have dropped to a 1 and you are knocking on the door to remission?” The Dude almost passed out from sheer joy! We are so, so happy. It's been a minute between his first surgery, radiation, and now chemo but praise God for the victory over this devil named cancer. We are almost there. I am praying for complete victory by the spring. Woohoo!!
A New House:
Last year in March we decided to buy land and build our dream house. We started looking in March but stopped to deal with the cancer. Once we knew the program for treatment we started looking again in August deciding that cancer wasn’t going to dictate our lives. Let me tell you finding land to build is a beast of a project! Either the lot is too hilly, too woody, and too expensive, too far out, has restrictions, or is too small. But, we found the perfect lot and are now working on contract details with the seller before we sign. We have a home builder that we love and they have given us a draft design. It’s going to be a minute before they can break ground and begin the work but we are very excited about this new house.
We decided to have a tented wedding celebration in the backyard. The lot we are buying is beautiful and it is several acres so there will be plenty of room. It’s going to be a tented event and beautiful. We have a date in mind but want to wait until we get past the land purchase and the house has started before making the official announcement. It will be a summer 2015 wedding for sure. I’ve been on this board for a long time with several wedding dates. This is it! I love you all but I have got to get off of this board before the next millennium. Sheesh.
Please say a prayer for us on all of the above. We appreciate it truly. Prayer is powerful and it works.
P.S. A few pics of tented wedding designs I like. Oh yes, it is going to be serious. LOL!
