WHEW... that's all I have to say.

Whew! Yesterday was Ashley's quarterly CT and man... it was a breeze until we got our results. That new nodule that showed up in Jan had now grown from 2mm to 4mm. The doc's said they weren't worried, but we needed to wait the 24 hours for her AFP blood work to come back. Well... I just got the numbers and he AFP is 2.4. I cried tears of joy. CANCER SUCKS! I can't begin to tell you how hard living in the moment is when you have a loved one going through a medical crisis. The emotions that run through your body are indescribable. Sometimes all you can do is focus on the negative but then you get distracted and sucked into a TV show or some other responsibility. I'm learning to accept getting sucked into things... this is probably what my mind needs. For now... all danger is averted. We're in the clear for another month until our next blood work appointment. WHEW!!! Happy Easter to all of you. And give your loved ones a BIG HUG today and then throw in an extra squeeze just because you want to. - April

Praise God! When I started reading your post, my heart was sinking. I am so glad to read the finale! I understand being sucked into a Show to get through a crisis...We watched so much Gilmore Girls while we were in the hospital. Lydia always smiles and gets excited when she hears the music now. It is good to have "normal" friends only dealing with the mundane, even if it is only on TV!
