Where we get good news for a change

Of the 2 tumors in Dad's brain, one is totally gone. The other one has shrunk considerably, and there is a little swelling and bleeding around it - which is normal, considering tumors create their own vascular systems. The tumor in his lung has also shrunk, and the tumor on his spine is totally gone. I am still in shock, we were prepared for the worst, and to get such great news is just.... well, I have no words.

My friend Scott came over last night with his massage table, and I got a lovely treat. It was a good cap to a generally crappy week. It was really nice to lay in my own family room and chat with my husband while I got a kick ass massage. I slept well, and feel ready to swing today - especially after Scott commented on my kick ass arms and shoulders. Time to pick up that 16kg again.

Well it's about time some good things come your way! Sending out thanks for your dad's healing and a prayer that he will continue to fight on. May you all receive the strength you need to face these days as well.

Just keep swinging, swinging, swinging!!!

H- Italian sausage and peppers is really the yummiest thing ever. They're tiramisu rocks the house, too. Thanks again for coming over last minute!

Julie, you of all people know what I'm going through. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, and know that I'm sending it all right back to you and your Mom.
Love you!

Amy, I am swinging my heart out. I think I have officially 'graduated' from the 8kg - I feel like Linus with his security blanket, not wanting to give it up! But the single swings are just not getting my heart rate up anymore (unless I'm doing double 8kg swings!) so it's on to just the 12kg and 16 kg! Thanks for all your well wishes, and you continue to be an inspiration!
