Climbing Out of Survival Mode.

This Picture Sums up the Bosts Summer 2015


Yesterday, was Jonathan's last radiation treatment. Last time he had to wear this mask. Last time he had to be picked up at work to rush off to treatment. Last time to sit in Dallas traffic.(probably not really the last time)

Jonathan has rocked radiation. He hasn't missed a day of work. He hasn't complained. He just does his treatment and goes back to work. This last week has been hard on him but it's over. He doesn't have to do this again. We are over our first hurdle. Actually, brain surgery was probably our first hurdle, so we are over our second hurdle. We get a month off of treatment and then on to the next hurdle-Chemo for a year. 

This morning I woke up and could feel a giant weight lifted off of me. For the first time in a long time I felt like myself. I felt like pre-cancer Mary. I finally feel like we can crawl out of survival mode. I'm so happy that things are returning to normal. Our kids are home, Jonathan is back to work and I am returning to doing my normal jobs/being a mom. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of the summer with my kiddos! 

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.

So incredibly happy for you! My first husband wore a mask like this. Used to scare the heck out of me. God is so good! Enjoy your time together as a family!
