Our sweet baby Henry is already 6 weeks old!
This past month has flown by faster than any I have ever known. Henry is growing and gaining weight quickly, and is becoming more active and aware each day. He is already a very sweet boy who loves to cuddle in mommy's arms. He is a great eater and an even better sleeper!
We have already had two photo shoots, several doctors appointments, a few visitors, and one big snowstorm. Henry has already outgrown all of his newborn clothes and is on the verge of outgrowing his Lil Joey diapers.
This past weekend, Barry's parents flew up from Florida to visit. They spent some time with the boys while I went in for my PET scan on Monday. I was super nervous waiting to hear back the results. (It was right after my first pregnancy when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My worst fear right now would be a recurrence.) Thankfully, my PET scan this time was completely clear!!!!! Only by the grace of God! =)
I will be going in to see my oncologist next week, for a physical and to talk about some discomfort that I have been having in my arm and leg. I am praying that it is not lymphedema or blood clots. I have a sharp pain that comes and goes randomly in my leg, with various intensity. My right arm is achy, sore, radiating warmth from the inside, and feels somewhat swollen. I am sure that my oncologist will be able to help me, regardless. I am just celebrating the fact that I am still cancer-free after 3 years! It feels like a miracle that I can go on to have such a blessed life after all that I have been through. I am so happy with my life, my husband, and my two beautiful boys. It truly doesn't get any better than this!
