Now for my turn:
For day 2 I am posting a two page layout about my husband's encounter with Melanoma and how God was so good to us and blessed us with His love and healing. Jim was diagnosed 14 years ago with Stage 4 Melanoma! It has been an incredible and blessed journey that we have taken. I hope you can click on the pictures making them larger so you can read the journaling and learn of our story. This is generally a deadly disease..at least 14 years ago it was and fortunately doctors like we had who pioneered in treatments and advancements in treatments many people are able to survive. If by chance you cannot read the journaling and would like to I would be more than happy to send our story to you via email. There are so many aspects of this story that show just how blessed we are. I don't want to repeat everything here if you are able to read it when you click to make it larger.. Thank you for being here.
The second page shows pic of Jim's scars or his badges of courage I like to say. He was so blessed to not have to have a skin graft and risk infection. Because he had worked in construction all of his life his upper body was strong and toned. They were able to make a much longer incision that allowed them to stretch the skin and stitch it closed. I only wish I had pictures from the beginning of his process so that you could see just how much better it looks now. I was really surprised that he allowed me to take pics of the scars and do this layout. I'm not sure why I have not scrapped this story before now and I was equally surprised that 14 years had gone by. We give GOD all the glory in this one.
