Family Joy News

Friday, November 09, 2012

Many of you have been tracking and aware of my granddaughter, Ally, and her long journey of fighting cancer. Sometimes my blogs have been painful, sometimes wonderful, sometimes fun. Well, today is one of the BEST.

Today is the 4th anniversary of when Ally got her port taken out, and had an end to the chemo and steroid treatments. She passed her tests with flying colors!!!!

Ally is in her second year at MCLA, located in the Berkshires. It is a beautiful campus, and their living quarters are very nice. She loves it there. Originally, she was planning on majoring in English Lit, but lately is considering changing to Biology.

I tell her to not be in a hurry deciding what her major is, and to just get all the reqs out of the way. After all, looks like she will have a loooooong life, which is something we couldn't say four years ago.

We have one more year to go before she is officially declared cancer free. So don't stop your prayers yet!

Another great piece of news is about Gabriel, our grandson. Gabe turned his life around on June 12, 2012 by entering a drug and alcohol free way of living. He relocated October 3 to begin a new life. He is doing very well. He has finished the first portion of his education for Certified Nurse Assistant, and is now doing his clinical period. He likes his job and his life, happy to be a productive member of society at last.

We are thrilled to have "our" Gabe back!!

This year will be a very wonderful THANKS GIVING in our family. Hope all of yours is the same!

Life is GOOD!!!
