Dr. Rowan is out of town...first available appointment was the 24th. I didn't want to take a chance of being late for my birthday cruise or not be able to talk, so I will have it out on the 26th! It will be so nice not to have to take my diaper bag (trach supply bag) everywhere I go...LOL!!! God is good and He is good all the time!

I saw Dr. Sneed yesterday...he said I was doing great! When he realized that Dr. Rowan was the one who put the trach in, he calletd him and he said that he would be glad to take it out! I love Dr. I am just waiting for an appointment. Soon I will be "hole free"! YAY! I still don't know why I can't just take it out! GOD IS GOOD AND HE IS GOOD all the time!

I have been patiently waiting to get this trach out! I can't understand why the Doctor that is responsible for putting the trach in, before letting me wake up on the ventilator and try to wean me off the ventilator, refuses to write the order to have it out. Instead, he says "Let Debbie do whatever she wants to do, because she is going to die"! Well Mr. Doctor, we are all going to die...only God knows when....but right now, my scans are clear and I was told by my wonderful oncologist, Dr. Sneed, the miraculous news that I am now CANCER FREE!! I don't know if the cancer will come back or if I will die in a car wreck or other means...only God knows that! I just know that I believe in the power of prayer and I think that my clear scans are testimony to that. I am so grateful and blessed for all my loved ones who have prayed for me, encouraged me and loved me during these past five months. My wonderful sister was the best caregiver ever and turned her home into a hospital room for me...I will never be able to thank her enough. I will always "Keep Fighting Like a Girl" and try my best to be what God wants me to be! I am going to enjoy life, appreciate what I have and be ever so grateful for the little things in life....God Bless You!!
