We had a busy day!!! The whole gang made it to church this morning and then grandma took Eli, Cara, and Allie home. Matt, Brady, and I drove to Webster for the Angels of Mercy Spaghetti Dinner. It was a great time and we are so thankful to this organization for donating a portion of their proceeds to benefit Brady. Thank you to all of our friends and family who came to the event as well! Brady had a great time eating spaghetti and cake:)
Here are two pictures from the benefit today. The "angels" at Angels of Mercy prayed over Brady:
Tomorrow it is back to business around here. I have several calls to make regarding some insurance issues and I need to touch base with the PT clinic to set up Brady's eval. Most importantly I need to call Sloan to see if the rest of the tests are back from Brady's surgery. We are continually praying that the results of the biology studies will still place Brady in the intermediate risk category. I also have to call Strong to set up a schedule for Brady's scans.
Since we have been home it is so easy to forget about the cancer world. Yes we have the daily care of Brady's Broviac and the constant reminders when looking at his scars. But we are home, no appointments for a while, and I guess I should feel really content. I just don't. I am struggling with this whole "monster under the bed" feeling that at any moment it will come crawling out and attack us once again. The parents who are in the monitoring phase call it "scanxiety"...all of the anxiety and fear that is wrapped up in the scanning and waiting phase. So I'm looking to God's word for strength and wisdom as we enter this next phase. I'm praying for courage and the ability to cherish each day despite the uncertain future. Thanks for letting me vent:)
