Where has the time gone?? I can't believe it's been a month since I last wrote. Life has a way of slipping by. But no news is good news, right? In this case, it definitely is. Randy had a whole series of testing and doctor visits this month. We were better braced for the news this time around. Surprisingly, it was all good news this time! Such a sigh of relief! We get a 3 month reprieve from cancer. Woohoo! The cat scans showed a pocket of what they suspect is lymph fluid, called a Seroma. This is caused by one of the veins (not sure if it's actually a vein.) that was cut from a lymph node, leaking a little fluid. Nothing serious. He has to have another scan in 2 months, which is now a month I guess, to make sure it's not growing and changing. If it is, then it could actually be something else. For now, we are just relieved to have a break from this monster that is changing our lives.
On a sad note, our wonderful surgeon is leaving the practice and heading to Florida i August. We are really quite sad about this, as we are quite fond of him. He has such a great personality and has been so helpful and informative. I do hope we are able to find another just as good.
In the meantime, Randy is doing more house renovations to keep him busy. I have never been so thankful for that last stimulus check we received! Our house was definitely in need of some repairs. Our nasty, dark and dreary back porch, is finally getting an overhaul! I gave Randy some photos of what I was hoping for, and he is making it happen. The insane high costs of lumber and building supplies has definitely put a damper on what we could afford, but it is still turning out beautiful. I'm disappointed we can't afford new windows and a screen door, but we are making do. We still need to put a new roof on the back of the house, so I need money for that too. With Randy staying home these days, there is no extra cash flow, so we have to make compromises. Another week and I should have pictures to share. :)
We also had a wonderful visit from the new granddaughter! We soaked up as many snuggles and cuddles as we could! We also took several hundred pictures of her. lol She is absolutely precious! So peaceful and content. Looking forward to another visit next weekend, hopefully!
