Good Morning CruiseMates!
Todd that sounds like much more positive news than what you were bracing yourself for. While not glowing, it could be much worse.
Your post and Trip's the past couple of days combined with a news segment on breast cancer sparked an interesting conversation with my kids yesterday morning and some thoughts today. Yesterday's news segment was about an organization that helps woman who cannot handle the financial aspects of fighting breast cancer and profiled a couple women's experiences. My kids asked me what they were talking about, what was chemo and what was a mastectomy. I explained about what cancer is, and radiation, about removing tumors with surgery etc... My son asked what happened after a mastectomy... my daughter pops up and says oh Bubby don't worry, another one grows back where the old one was.
. I said well not exactly.
Strange how kid's perceptions work. I said well don't you remember a few years ago when Oma had an operation to get rid of her breast cancer and when all of her hair fell out all those times she had chemo and a stem cell transplant for the Myeloma? Don't you remember when Mommy took Grandpa to the Doctor to talk about prostate cancer and his radiation treatment?
Well I was stunned and surprised to find out that they remembered none of it.
Oh to be a child.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a memory like that, where we can find such dramatic and traumatic experiences and just shove them right out the back door. Or basically just not even observe those things. Kids are great.
Well today is my last day to get caught up before d/s's surgery. I need to get his lowered bed set up, I also need to clean out my truck and make a comfortable spot for him to lie on the trip home. The house is in pretty good shape. aside from a few cluttered spots. I went down to cvs and found a table he can use when he is in bed or sitting on the sofa.
I contacted the pharmacy yesterday about d/s's meds and they weren't phoned in yet, I then called the doctor and they said it would be done today. I sure hope so.
That's where my head is today. I am very nervous about it all.
D/s will be going to the pool today with his friends. Sort of a last hurrah before he will house bound for a bit. I have to head out early tomorrow, so not sure if I will have time to post before we go. Pray for my boy that God directs the surgeon's hand and the we can both be strong so Mommy doesn't dissolve into a big puddle of tears
. What a whimp eh?
Make it a good one folks. I will report on the surgery and how d/s is doing when I can.
