Thanksgiving has come and gone, but I have much to be thankful for:
- My neck burns from the radiation have made significant progress in healing.
- I’ve been able to eat some “real food” this week, i.e., vegetable soup—only a couple of tablespoonfuls, but I’ll take it. I was so excited to achieve eating, that I popped an M&M in my mouth to celebrate and instantly got a bitter cocoa taste. An abrupt reminder that my sweet taste buds are nil. Baby steps.
- Along with healing on my neck, swallowing has become easier so I know internally the healing is taking place, as well. Yay!
- Energy levels are increasing and medications are decreasing. Down to one nap a day!
- My hair is growing back! I’ve been pondering the question “When is the right time to stop coloring your hair?” (Confession time: Yup, I do.) The time in NOW! So unless some of my natural auburn decides to make an appearance anytime soon, the next time you see my head it will be sporting the ever so popular “salt and pepper” look. It’s growing fast. Not to brag, but you should see my leg hair.
- I’m excited and thankful to be able to attend our annual Hanging of the Greens service tonight at church—one of my favorite services. I haven’t been able to go to church in weeks so this will be quite the treat!
God continues to be gracious and His blessings never cease. I pray that in the midst of our beautiful relationship with Him we will always acknowledge and embrace His goodness. God is good, all the time. Happy Giving Thanks!
