Just a quick update on the goings on with our friends after they where figuratively punched in the gut and had their feet kicked out from under them.
My friend had her surgery, did not have a mastectomy but instead a lumpectomy. The cancer cells do not appear to be in any surrounding tissues or lymph nodes so the doctors feel her future is good. They will be deciding in the next couple of weeks if treatment is needed.
One day at a time.
Breathe in, breathe out.
Sean's friend, Austin, came out of the surgery quite nicely, is alert and has spoken a few words. Something he was unable to do before surgery so everyone is hopeful that there will be no more bleeds or clots and that when the swelling on the brain goes down he will be back to normal.
He had his dad Facebook pictures of him after the operation with the comment "I can talk, bitches!"
The entire thing brings tears to my eyes and when he's back to normal I will say "language, Austin, language!"
Sean said, "Look, he won't need a halloween costume. He has the bandages, stitches, bruises..."
He got 'the look' for that one.
Kids..... they make our hearts burst with pride and break apart with anguish and worry.
So another prayer of thanks and a prayer that you will all be safe, well and happy and that we will all see the things in life that are joyful.
