You can ring my bell

Well, Sahara rang the heck out of the bell in the radiation oncology department this morning! It's hard to believe that we are beginning to see a bit of closure, even though the road ahead of us is very long. I cried, took photos of her, and was very proud. She is such a precious girl.

She's been tired the last couple of days, mostly resting and napping. I bet she will perk up tomorrow, though. The chemo will end during the night, and she'll just be receiving hydration in her IV after that. So far, she has been very resilient and snaps back quickly after the chemo is finished. Plus, no radiation in the morning!

We will be flying home bright and early on Friday. I'm sure we will both be wiped out by the time we get home, but the thought of being HOME is what is keeping us so motivated!

Can't wait to see many of you at the benefits this weekend - we are going to have so much fun! Hopefully Sahara will feel like spending a good amount of time at both of them. And surely the weather will hold for Sunday!!! Keep that faith!!!

Special thanks to everyone involved with the benefits...we are simply astounded by your incredible efforts in making them happen. The blessings in our lives just keep multiplying every day. We love you all!!! Can't wait to see you!!!

With much love,
