Some of you may not know my husband has been undergoing chemotheraphy for lymphoma. Monday we went to Mayo Clinic (in Jacksonville, FL) for his fourth chemotheraphy. We also received the results of the CT scan he had a few days before. The results were: CANCER FREE!!! We are so thankful for answered prayers!! We are thankful for the doctors and the wisdom the Lord has given them. This lymphoma is not curable, but responds very well to chemotherapy. Our friends and family have supported us in prayer and Joe has done so well during the chemo treatments. He will have the remaining two scheduled chemo rounds, and even more if the doctors suggest it. He will continue with CT scans every three months and possible maintenance if needed.

This calls for a celebration! My husband loves to travel and nothing stops him, not even sickness!! He has a weeks vacation planned and we are leaving Friday and returning on Father's Day. When we tell people where we are going they look surprised - we are going to New Orleans! We have never been there, we missed an opportunity to go there a few years ago before the hurricane hit and we regretted not going even more. We are assured the downtown area is totally restored and didn't have the flooding and devastation of other areas there. We'll take lots of photos and share them on my blog. Tomorrow I'll have a little surprise picture to leave on my blog while we're gone. In the meantime, please rejoice with us with our good news! Thanks to all of you who prayed for both of us!!
