For the past year, Lauren Sullivan has bravely battled cancer. Three trips to the surgery center, months and months of chemo and now more recently daily radiation for the past two months. She has faced it all with a smile. She never complains. I watched her lose all her hair and still worry more about our three kids. I watched her get weak and sick and still worry if I was doing okay.
So today, on our 21st wedding anniversary, and not that far removed from her 45th birthday, I get to watch her say goodbye to radiation. I get to watch her put this year of cancer treatment to rest. I get to see her exhale.
In the afternoon I will go with her to her final radiation treatment.
Then we will watch our youngest son (6th grade) play his football game.
Then a dinner to celebrate 21 years of marriage.
Then NY Jets football.
It is weird how football can seem so important some times. On Thursday night, as badly as I want the Jets to win, I am not going to worry all that much about football (for once). I already got want I wanted out of Thursday.
Lauren is healthy and happy!
Thank you to everyone for all the support. It has been overwhelming and is greatly appreciated.
