This past Tuesday Holly finished the last of her treatments and we had a totally awesome day! She had told me some time ago that she really wanted to celebrate when she was finished… and also mentioned something about a cookie cake from Great American Cookies, so I surprised her with a giant cookie that said simply, “Done!”. The good folks at Tennessee Cancer Specialists had a surprise up their sleeve as well and sang their own rendition of ‘Hit the Road Jack’ (they sang “hit the road Holly”) while dancing around in funny costumes. It made for a great ending to her treatments. Later that evening I also surprised her with a trip to The Melting Pot where we were met by members of our church small group. Sept 6th, was definitely a day all about Holly!
As a side note, we have sung the praises of Tennessee Cancer Specialists on multiple occasions on this blog, but we really can’t say enough good things about them. That the nurses would all dress up and sing to Holly and join in the celebration of beating cancer is just totally awesome. Throughout this whole process they have just been amazing. They prayed with us, they cried with us, they laughed with us, and I believe truly cared for and about us. They do a really good job of making a bad situation as good as it can be.
