Twelve and four!

No, it's not our favorite baseball team's losing streak. Another twelve has passed on the calendar...along with four more days! Fifty-three months (and four days) since the diagnosis that changed my life, and all is well!

As always, I was blessed to be able to do more than maintain a pulse. I was able to cheer my son in three more baseball games. I was able to watch my son give a talk, and my daughter give the scripture and prayer in Primary at church. I was able to celebrate one niece's eleventh birthday, another niece's third birthday, my in-law's fiftieth wedding anniversary, and one more Mother's day. I was able to give encouragement to others in person and via email, phone, and (albeit briefly) even television! I was able to sing again, laugh again, and write again. And the list goes on!

Most importantly, I have been able to testify of the goodness of God and the love that He has for all of His children.

Hi Krista! My name is Becky Durrett. My husband, Mark, also has GBM. He was diagnosed in late February, had surgery on March 29, and we just got back from MD Anderson where he underwent radiation and chemo. Dr. Fink is his local oncologist also. We live in Frisco, and I was wondering if it would be possible for us to meet sometime to talk about things. Could you email me at markdurrett@hotmail.com when you get a chance? Thank you so much!
