Good Morning Friends! Today marks the end of our chapter of Carl’s gastro/esophageal cancer fight. The end of this cancer journey with surgical removal of Carl’s port.
I am sitting in the very spot I waited time and time again. It was in this chair I waited to find out that we in fact did have cancer. It is in this very chair that I waited for 16 hours as the hands of an angel worked to remove that very cancer from his stomach and esophagus. It is the people in this hospital and team that have given their hearts and life to help heal my husband every step of the way.
This entire weekend was nostalgic to say the least. From a cancer gala with the entire staff of doctors, nurses, and staff on Friday. To dinner with our oncology nurse on Saturday. To meeting a wonderful lady whose husband did not make it through the very same esophageal fight, who gave me the most hope through her beautiful advice. Despite her outcome she was shedding light to me!!!!!
Today is the end. It is hard to believe all his has happened. We are so thankful to so many people the list in endless for all the prayers, novenas, rosaries, well wishes and donations! We have friends and family thet have held us up for the last year and a half. Life is very fragile. It is a gift and Carl and I are really trying our best to come out of this stronger and more authentic. I learned at the gala Friday that 1/3 people are affected by cancer, and it has no prejudice, we are all at risk.
I am so proud of my husband, he really is a hero. He has fought through every physical and emotional mountain and I am more in love with him today than ever. Cancer flips your world upside down, but somehow we now see more clearly than ever. I look at my husband everyday and think how blessed we are with God’s grace and healing! A miracle indeed! He is not only cancer free but living out his dream of opening his own restaurant in the city he loves the most! My prayer has and always will be that we are holding hands at our children’s weddings! I am starting to believe that may be possible! The next 5 years are critical!! Prayer, faith, and joyful living is our path from now on!
My father in law said it best…….Blessed Father Seelos came through for us!!!!!!! Thank God! Closing the door on this chapter! Have a beautiful day, thanking God for your life and health! Thank you for praying for Carl’s healing, it worked!❤️❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻!
