So Far So Good

Surgery went well! My surgeon was able to cover the hole with the existing flap from my forehead. And so far, it looks as if my skin is intact and staying strong. We are all holding our breath, but I think this time we are good. My surgeon will take extra precautions this time and leave the stitches in a little longer to make sure the flap has taken hold of my fragile skin. The flap will have to stay on my face for 6 weeks now to ensure the skin graft will have adequate blood supply. As of now, we are feeling very positive.

Thanks to all of you for sticking with me and continuing to uplift me in your prayers. This is a long journey...and it continues even after a patient has entered into remission. So much healing to do both physically and mentally after all of the treatment. So it is good to know that people are still out there praying for me.

Next Friday, I will be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. This is my last and final request for donations. I am trying to raise as much money as I can to support the fight against cancer. Cancer has not only affected my life, but the lives of many of my friends and family. I never thought it could happen to me. But it has, and I would give anything to prevent it from happening to someone else. Thank you thank you thank you to the many of you that have already donated. If you haven't done so already and wish to donate click on the link on top of my blog.

I will continue to keep you updated on my progress. My hope is that from here on out that everything will be good news.

Much love,
