We fell in love with her beautiful eyes the moment we met her almost 4 years ago. I'm sure we will mourn the loss of her eye greatly. However, we are ready for the cancer that has invaded her precious little body, gone. That eye is a threat to her life so it is time to move on. Ania will be ok. We just have a new phase starting soon- RECOVERY.
Right now, I can be thankful for the fact that we did everything we could. Ania's life will be saved. I am thankful for the clear answer from the doctor I was praying for. I am thankful for the support of my husband as we went through this tough day together and the peace we feel right at this moment with our decision. I am thankful for my mom Julee for being here with us and for giving Ania some normalcy on this strange trip. I am thankful for the friends and family who have lifted us up in prayer and hope that you all would continue to do so as we embark on this next path.
I'm not sure how I will explain it to Ania. I'm not going to worry about it today though. I'll pray that the right words will come out when the time is right. For now, I am just going to enjoy Where We Are At. We are at a peaceful place of resolution and a cancer-free life ahead.
