Scanxiety......I hate that word.  But it is what it is.  Steve and I have been trucking along the last month or so living a "normal" life.  Steve has still had some pain form the surgery, but overall has recovered well.  He has been working from home and in the office.  We had some friends over for UFC a couple of weekends ago.  Everything has been going pretty well.  Tomorrow is another big day of scans.  He will have an MRI and a CAT scan to see how the melanoma is doing.  We will go back on Thursday to get the results of his scans.  So, as much as I hate the word "scanxiety", I guess I am feeling a little "scanxiety" tonight.

On a side note, I was contacted by MD Anderson today to write my second blog for them.  The topic will be "platelet donations".  I am not sure when it is due and/or when it will be published.  I love contributing though!

  1. What a great photo--you'll are such a beautiful family! Glad to hear things have been going good. I know the next couple of days are "biggies" and I pray that the news is all GOOD! We are still praying for a complete healing for Steve and we know he is in great care. One of my favorite scriptures when experiencing anxiety is Philippians 4: 6&7
    "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus" Let me know if you'll need anything. We love you'll, Uncle Tim
