As I type, Shayne is nearing the Ohio line! Praise God for safe travels thus far! Aunt V, being one to tough it out until the very end, arranged for her flight to leave out of Cleveland instead of Philadelphia, so they'll drop her off at the airport in about three hours and she'll fly back to Phoenix while they finish the journey home. I will forever be grateful for Vaunie's employer and friends for sending her out and allowing her to stay and help out in what turned out to be my long absense. We have met the greatest people on Earth throughout our journey! We don't walk this road alone; we are incredibly blessed by tremendous friends and strangers alike!
Shayla and I went grocery shopping after school so that Shayne and Christi would have some good foods waiting for them and so that Shayla could pick up the things she's been wanting to get in order to make the sandwich in "The Sandwich that Max Made". She was as proud as a peacock fixing me dinner tonight- a ham, cheese, green pepper and bean sprout sandwich- just like Max made! Delicious! It was in town where I received the text message from Shayne regarding the scan.....
Liver lesions remain unchanged, negative for fungal infection, platelets transfused, hung her blood at 3:30.
About 8:00 PM, their long day was complete and they left Philadelphia to make the ten hour trip home. I look for them to arrive about 6:00 AM. Shayne said he has to get ready for a 11:00 meeting at work; that man is simply amazing! I plan on spoiling him and Christi (and what the heck - Shayla too! We've had incredible bonding time in the past two weeks) the rest of the day.
Christi's scan report was preliminary. At first I was disappointed that improvement wasn't noted after a terribly harsh round of chemo (TVD agents) but now that I ponder it some more, I fully realize it could have been worse and maybe the final report will show improvement after all. Regardless, our family will soon be back together again and we're all very happy about that! Goodnight from the Thomas team!
