As for our family. It has been a busy summer. The kids were in summer camp for the first three weeks, and they loved it. But with a busy schedule of doctors appts and weekly chemo we thought it was easy to have them home. SO I have had my hands full with them. We celebrated Tony's 31st birthday on July 12th. The kids and I began a new birthday tradition of decorating our enclosed porch early in the morning. We had a blast putting up streamer and balloons all over the room. We even wrote a birthday message on the windows with special washable crayons. Tony loved it but the kids loved showing him and seeing his reaction even more. Mia will be turning 6 years old on Saturday, July 20th and it is unbelievable how fast she has grown. She is especially excited about having the porch decorated for her this weekend and having her two closest friends over for a play date/party. Then we have a few short weeks left before she will be in 1st grade. What an adjustment that will be since I will only have one child at home. Mateo has been as active as ever but has been SO affectionate, always telling me how much he loves me. The sweetest words to my ears, it melts my heart every time I hear them. Tony and I have been enjoying each day that we have together with the kids and are just trying to live as normal as possible before the next steps in my journey. My doctors have mentioned that the recovery from surgery that bad, a few days of recovery and then I should be up and doing normal activities, but it more of an emotional and psychological recovery. So I am praying that the LORD will give me strength and really guard my mind for depression. I am also asking for prayer for HOPE. My GOD give me HOPE for my future and may I now live in fear of the unknown outcomes ahead of us. May I trust in HIM day by day.
