One year ago today, Tom’s oncologist suggested he stop treatment. He felt the treatment was no longer serving it’s purpose and was only making him sicker. I remember the shell-shocked feeling (much like the feeling we had when Tom was first diagnosed). Some of the other anniversaries coming up: the anniversary of finding the tumor, Tom’s first chemo treatment, the diabetic emergency (brought on from one of his treatments destroying his pancreas), and the open-heart surgery to remove the benign myxoma. Tom always called me the “Human Calendar” because I had a great memory for dates. Plus I was so open about our journey on Facebook that I couldn’t forget if I wanted to, because it shows up in my Facebook memories.
This seems like a good time to thank you all again for your prayers and support. I know that is what carried us through the hardest times (and what is carrying me through now).
