Thanksgiving was very special this year to us all. Following a full day of love, laughter, and a lavish feast that began with tearful individual gratitudes and ended with amusing group songs, there was a slumber party at Sherryl's house. The younger generations stayed and conversations, including those with RaRa, continued well into the wee hours of the morning. Once everyone was asleep, Sherryl tells us she woke up once in the middle of her slumber and realized she was smiling. She said she thought to herself, "Perfect. What a perfect Thanksgiving." And it was.
The rest of Sherryl's weekend was busy. She is taking full advantage of welcoming energy back to her side, and was out and about on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Some have told her she sounds great. To others, she sounds just like she always has -- exuding happiness, connecting with every single person she meets, and loving life itself.
As scheduled, Sherryl had an MRI today; tomorrow brings a CT scan and physical therapy. An appointment to learn test results is scheduled for Wednesday. Given Sherryl's great response to all treatment to date, there is much optimism as we await the outcome. In the meantime, she is determined to rebuild her strength and has vowed to walk as much as possible.
You may have noticed the color scheme for this update page has changed. And, in keeping with RaRa's resolution to do a lot of walking, the little icon located in the upper left corner of this page, which was once a photograph of California poppies, is now a photograph of shoes. There's a reason for the color change, and the shoes are not just any old shoes. 'Tis the season, you know.
