It was clear! It was clear!
JD's MRI came back free-of-tumor.
We had a tense few moments (okay, when I say tense, I mean we laughed at Brandon nearly falling out the window, and JD throwing his coat on the floor bc he didn't know where else to put it) waiting for Dr. Young to come back and give us the results.
In Kramer fashion, he threw open the door and said "First things first, the MRI looks good." Mom literally jumped and hugged the dr. and was crying, we were all grinning, saying variations of 'oh my goodness' and 'hurray!'. Dr. Young was visibly sharing in our relief, I do believe. It was a sweet moment. The first good news we've recieved in quite some time.
'Twill be a Merry Christmas, indeed.

We had a delicious celebratory dinner (without JD, actually... he and Jack went to the Pacer's game) at the Olive Garden, and Mom and I went shopping afterwards while the boys and Brandon and Holly went back to our house. You could see it in Mom's face... a million pounds have been lifted from her shoulders. She couldn't stop smiling. Such a nice thing...
My plan was to walk out baby girl, but here I sit, as pregnant as ever. I had some serious tenseness/pressure in my lower back this morning- I was basically in fetal position but with my belly towards the ground trying to relieve it. It worked some, until I got up. But anyway. She'll come when she's good and ready, I suppose. But I do feel like I can have her now, that I can focus on her and not be wishing the timing of this all were different. I know there's still a long road ahead, with JD and everything, but this is tremendous news and we're still treating just cells, not a tumor. Praise the Lord... for real.
I woke up this morning to the sweetest voice in the world saying "DaaaDaaa. MaaaaMaaaa." Definitely a great way to start the day. SO I'm off to enjoy my boys, a family Christmas today, a family Christmas tomorrow. Merry Christmas!
