For all my friends out there who have followed our year of living with cancer, I have good news..........................

Craig had his first 3-month follow-up MRI and appears to be cancer-free at this time! There was a concern at first about something that was seen in his throat, but a trip to an ENT put us at ease. It seems that from all the surgery and radiation his internal "appearance" has changed, and he believes that it is nothing to worry about.

We are far from back to where we were a year ago. I won't even refer to it as "back to normal" because we now have to develop a new normal. Things will never be the same, but they are far better than we were lead to hope up to even just a few months ago.

So...................Here's to creating a New Normal!

    To a New Normal! emoticon

This is the very best news for a rainy 4th of July! Makes the day brighter, better, and more thankful. Now you and Craig (and family) can carve out what a "new normal" is going to be.

Thanks be to God.

    Great news! Congratulations!
"New Normal" is a transition that happens quite a few times in one lifetime. I'm glad you two are able to make the transition together.
