Our family was truly blessed today. Early this morning I took Michelle for her checkup with the GYN. Her incision is almost totally healed. The nurse is coming in tomorrow morning and then that is it. There is no need for the nurse's visits any longer. The doctor also had the lab report. The cyst was benign. I am so thankful for your prayers and support during this time. You all have definitely been a blessing to me. Blessings have been raining down upon us from every direction. God is good.
