Journal entry by Carolee Pederson

Sharon has been recovering quite well at her home in Cottage Grove after her bladder removal and hysterectomy. She was in the hospital for a little over a week after that surgery.  

Sharon met her oncologist at the Mayo Clinic and he gave her the "green light" that she can head back home to Florida. Yea!!  No more cold and snow!!  She will be flying to Florida on Monday, while Chad and Ron will drive their vehicle down to Florida on Saturday.  

When Sharon gets to Florida, she has an appointment with a oncologist that will be monitoring her chemotherapy treatments. We are happy to hear that this doctor did her fellowship at the Mayo Clinic.   The plan is to have her do 3 courses of chemo.  She also be will be coming back to Minnesota in February to do a C/T scan and follow up appointment with her MN oncologist.   

Chad, myself and the kids are heading down to Florida for Christmas vacation. The kids are looking forward to swimming in their pool and enjoying some warm weather with Grandma Sharon and Papa Ron.   

Thank you for the continued prayers for Sharon!  Sharon is a very strong women and is going to kick this cancer's butt!
