Beginning of the rest of our lives...

This week has marked the end to Cancer treatment!
For now and hopefully forever.
So here is our journey through Cancer in photographs...

The first one was taken straight out of hospital.
David had spent a whole month in hospital and undergone two major surgeries.

This one was just over a month later,
David lost sooo much weight that he needed a new wedding band.
I am pleased to report he has now gained weight again and is back in his old ring!

The chemo months...
These months saw David very tired and poorly.
But he was a trooper and fought through it and even managed to continue working...
in fact David being David he has worked everyday (bar the two days of surgery).

The best of course for last!
The very last chemo tablet!!!
You can easily see the relief on David's face.

I would love to have taken more and truly documented the journey our family has experienced this year,
but time and situation did not allow.

Through all of this I know my family has been truly blessed in ways we would never have realised had this opportunity for growth not come along.
Don't get me wrong, we would have very much loved it not to have been here in the first place,
but we have experienced to many wonderful experience and blessings and grown closer to wonderful friends and even made new friends because of 'vlad' visiting. 
(Vlad is the name we gave the tumour)

I can honestly say Heavenly Father loves us and is mindful of our family,
how humbling is that, to know, and I mean know Heavenly Father knows us and wants the best for us.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed, fasted, helped, cared for and supported our family.
YOU are truly a blessing in our lives and we love you very much.
