Good morning everyone!!  Wow....what a night I had last night!  I will tell you about it but first I want to tell you about this picture in case you were wondering and missed yesterdays post.  My friend Peggy double dogged dared me to jump into the water fountain outside my Drs. office after I was told that I was in remission and cancer free.  I was also suppose to "happy dance".  So here you go Peggy.....I hiked my dress up, jumped in and am dancing!  So much fun!


Fountain Dance
Now for last night.  I was feeling absolutely fine until about 10:00.  I was already in bed reading and the stomach pain hit hard.  This happened to me last week after treatment too but I just rode it out and it went away.  This time it was worse.  I didn't know if it was my gall bladder or what.  I tried to ride this one out too but my body wasn't having any of it.  So Mike took me to the emergency room and they ran a lot of tests and ruled out lots of things.  The ER Doc thinks it's the chemo.  So everything will be faxed to my oncologist today to see if he can figure out what is going on.  As soon as we know anything we will pass the news on.

On to more EXCITING news.......WoooooooHoooooooo I am cancer free!!!!!  :) :) :) :) :)  I can't stop smiling!!  I even started dancing again this morning! I think I was praising God in my sleep!!   I only have two more treatments left and then I am done completely with all of this!!!  The end is finally in sight.  Thank you all so much for the tremendous support, encouragement and prayers that you have said for me.  I could not of done this with out you!  Thanks for all of the wonderful comments on this blog, all the text messages, facebook messages, e-mails and phone calls to me yesterday.  It was great!

Thank you so much Terrie Olstowski for making dinner for us last night!  It was so good!  Thank you also for the book and gift!  I already made the reservation!

Thanks Monica for the celebatory lunch yesterday.  That was a lot of fun!

Thank you to my friends Nick and Teri Sulli and my friend Christie Ellis for the beautiful flowers!!  They are absolutely gorgeous!!

Thank you Vicki Rush for the card and gift!  The verses were perfect!

I also want to wish my awesome son-in-law Ryan a very "Happy Birthday" today!  You know I love you so much!  Have fun in San Francisco with Jenna!  Also Happy Birthday to our friend Sierra Van Leeuwen!

Oh I have so much to say but I will stop now.  Have a great day everyone!!!  I will be on my couch today reading and watching TV.  I will be praising God too!  And dancing too.  Today is another gift and God is so Good!!!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow......................

So sorry for your stomach pain. I hope you don't have those any more. So glad this is almost over. Your pic is BEAUTIFUL! You even look graceful in there. I wish it was a moving pic. We're still praying in AL & CO, and we were saying thanks last night together. Love, Ev

Good Afternoon...I just LOVE that picture!!! It's absolutely great! In fact, I'm gonna 'nab' it for my scrapbook!
