Last week I had my first scheduled 3 month MRI. I have had a number of MRIs before and after surgery/treatment so far but this was the first MRI I have had over an extended amount of time without any intervention (I.e. chemo or radiation). We received the results on Friday and I’m happy to report that the MRI came back clear – no evidence of any disease or abnormalities in the brain or spine! I know this is the first of 4 MRIs this year as they continue to watch me closely, but it is a moment of victory as I continue this journey.
The peripheral neuropathy has completely left my hands. It still however, remains in my feet, which throws me off balance since half my foot feels numb. A couple weeks ago I was able to wiggle my toes for the first time in 2 months. I am very thankful for this progress and I’m excited to see more!
A clear MRI and a pair of wiggly toes is one of the best gifts I could ask for this Christmas. But the real gift has already been given December 25th, over 2000 years ago – “a saviour has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord”. (Luke 2:11) My hope is fully anchored in the one who came and gave his life so I could have life and have it in abundance! (John 10:10)
Again, thank you to all friends, family, and acquaintances who have reached out to me, you can bet I have seen your post and I have been encouraged by it. I also wanted to give a special shout out to all of my coworkers at National Bank Financial – I think of you all often and I am touched by all of your thoughts and support. Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year!
