day for celebration.

As of 2:15pm yesterday, the surgery went great. As good as it possibly could have. They took out all of his abdominal lymph nodes and the tumor. As of right now they believe they were able to leave all of the nerves in tact also. (Which is a HUGE victory!) Quick test results came back cancer free! Official results are still 2 weeks away but there is an 80% chance of having the same results.

He woke up at 3:30 pm, a full 6 hours after being brought in for surgery. And then this morning he is in pain, but it is manageable. The doctor already wants him up and moving, 10 laps are on the to do list for today. While it hurts to get up and walk, that is the way to get back home so Derek is game.

Thank you all for your support and prayers yesterday. We needed them!

Happy birthday to Devan and Danielle! Ya'll are my favorite set of twin girls.

2 years ago today, I cried a million happy tears watching my baby sister marry one of the greatest men you'll ever meet. Watching them become parents this year has been fabulous!

And lastly, but absolutely not least, I'm celebrating my bff Molly giving birth to the most beautiful baby girl on Sunday. Adelaide Elizabeth was born on September 23 at 7:55 pm. Lots of love to their whole family!
