Thank you Ian, Joan and Jan. We're now a week into this last treatment and so far not nearly as hard as the last one. Perhaps getting a couple units of blood at the same time helped. This is very encouraging for us.

Sorry I've been away so long but cancer is an all consuming disease and not only affects the body but the mind as well. Deb had surgery on Monday, a bi-lateral mastcetomy. The surgery went very well and pathology reports now show no cancer in Deb's body. Hurray!! Now is a time of healing and recovery before starting radiation. She is a very strong woman and appears to be having excellent results so far. We are very encouraged about this and so thankful that God is blessing her.

It's been an interesting journey Joan. When I read Viktor Frankl's book; Man's Search for Meaning he talked about suffering. As a Jewish psychiatrist and concentration camp prisoner he observed the behavior of the jailers and prisoners. He said that those who didn't discover the gift of their experience lost the greater meaning of their suffering. Being a caregiver for Deb is part of the gift of this experience for me. As a surviving spouce it's all about selflessness and giving.
