Something We are Thankful for This Holiday...

Hi All,

Many of you have been following my father's diagnosis of colon cancer since the spring. He underwent intensive surgery to remove 90% of his colon in an attempt to stop the cancer from spreading. He had a biopsy recently and the results came in yesterday: CANCER FREE! We are oh so thankful for this news right before the holidays.

I also received more good news today. I have an official closing date of December 6th on my first home. The paperwork is being finalized and everything is set to go.

Wishing you all a joyous Thanksgiving,

Nikki

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

I am so happy for you NikkiBell! I'm hoping to be in your shoes in a few months with my mother-in-law's situation.
And congratulations on the new house! How exciting to be able to spend the holidays in your new home this December!

So happy to hear about your Dad, that is so great! Good luck with closing on the house. Things to be truly thankful for, no doubt.

Congratulations Niki, really good news! After three years of battling, our oldest was found to be rid of his thyroid cancer this past July - feels like time to take a deep breath and enjoy!
