A little Surprise party!!!

We successfully pulled off a surprise party for Austin a few Saturdays ago to celebrate "no mo chemo!" Austin finished his chemo and radiation treatments on the 12th and then Saturday the 15th all of our family and close friends got together for a little afternoon party. It was so much fun and I loved having everyone together. Through this whole summer Austin has said to me countless times how he just wanted to be with his family or just wished he could go to Danville to see his friends. Welp! That is what he wanted and that is what he got. His best guy friends all came down and all of his immediate family was able to come to town. It was perfect and I really didn't want the day to end!

I tried to coordinate all of Austin's favorite foods for the party. I asked him about a week before, "what would you say your very favorite food is?" and he responded with, "hmm. sushi. or tuna. or really just any good fish." Yeaaaaa. Awesome. Those things were definitley not on my party food list. Then he said "well, Chick-fil-A nuggets, too." haha, think he was on to me?

I seriously have the best girlfriends in the world. No way I could of gotten through these past 4 months without these girls. Literally, daily texts and phone calls were the normal...and I can never thank them enough. <3

Sure do love my little niece Caroline!!

Thank you so much to everyone for helping with this! It was a huge group effort and it all came together so well! I just loved it!!!! :)

The plan for now is to follow Austin with frequent CT scans which will get further and further apart as time goes on. His first scan is scheduled for October 16th and we should have results that afternoon as we meet with his doctors a few hours after the scans. I feel 100% confident that we will have great news but I can't wait to hear it. A tumor-free scan...ahhh, music to my ears!

Keep calm...and fight on! (although I'm hoping our fight is finished for now, and frankly, forever.) I love you to the moon and back Austin!
