IF I could play the drums right now, I would. Just got back from therapy and my arm is down 65%!!!! Amazing...I am thrilled with these results. It has been a hard road for me, I will admit that I have been frustrated and whiny at times. I can see the end of the road now. I will get measured for my sleeve and glove on Thursday. It will take about two weeks to get it back from Germany and then I will have the use of my right arm and hand. I will be able to return to work, write and make cards. I am so grateful that God sent me to Troy - the best physical therapist ever. I am ever so grateful and thanful for all the love, encouragement, prayers and support from my family, friends and co workers.....thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Dear Debbie,
I truly believe that your arm is healing because of your strong faith that our God is a God of miracles. And I feel certain that there is a lady with lymphedema out there "somewhere" that only you will be able to tell her how to get through treatment. You will be an inspiration to her just as you always have been to so many others. Love ya friend,

I hope someday that I will be more like my big sister. She never gives up and most importantly hands over her problems to God. I have so much to learn from her! Thank you for sharing your experience with so many.

Debbie, you're amazing! When I think of how whiny I get with a runny nose there is no comparison. I know it's been difficult not being able to do any of your favorite things, but your results prove that it's been SO worth it!
