Cancerversary!!

I had another follow up MRI on January 3rd. This is what I get dressed in before my scans. Thankfully this scan was like my others and I'm still considered stable. The tumor is not growing. I begin my second to last round of chemo next Tuesday, February 5th. Hallelujah. I cannot wait for this maintenance chemo to be over. I'm sick of being knocked down, tired, itchy, no appetite, on loads of prescriptions and frustrated. I pray that I will feel different when it's all over, and that the tumor will stay away. Now that a new year has begun, insurance plan has started over too. EOB's are slowly coming in with amounts I'll owe when I'm billed by the doctor until I reach my deductibles again.
 My 1 year cancerversary was on January 8th. We celebrated by going to dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Park City. The Ashursts had a gift card and came with us.
 
We've both grown some hair in a year. Cody's on his chin and mine on my head, where hair belongs.
 My brothers son, Parker, turned 8 in December and he was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on January 5th. It was special to be there and get Tucker excited for his baptism this fall.
