I haven't been here in a while.  I had surgery the week of Thanksgiving and after a few setbacks, I am doing well and looking forward to spending the holidays with my 5 children!   I finished chemo Oct. 24 (CEA 1.7 and clear PET results- yay!) and then began the process of preparing to reverse the colostomy.  All is well and I am recovering better than expected.

This Christmas, I wish for you all much peace and love, an abundance of blessings, and above all, strength and good health. 

always, love and prayers,

Mary Carol
