Update on Dr. Ruth

Good morning Friends and Family,

These last few weeks have gone well. There have been good days and bad days, but mom is up and moving around. I must say, she really does look great.

Yesterday, she went to meet with a few oncologists and it is looking like the beginning of her chemotherapy treatment will start in the next two weeks. We are still deciding what type of chemo treatment to go with, but everything is looking to be on track.

Mom goes back to her surgeon today for her first check up since she left the hospital. We will keep you all in the loop once we know more.

Again, thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers. You have all been more than kind to our entire family and we are so grateful.

We're drinking coffee!

Good morning friends,

First and foremost I must apologize for not updating this more, but honestly, we have been doing quite well and there has not been much to update!

Mom is eating and had her first cup of coffee a few days ago, which was one of the things that she missed most! She is up and moving around and, for having a huge surgery last week, doing incredible. All of her hard work in the hospital and with physical therapy has paid off!

As for next steps she will go back and meet with the doctors in Birmingham in two weeks and will from there figure out our next move.

Again, thank you for all your prayers, cards, food and everything!

We will keep you updated.
