quick update

A quick update on our Friend's health. After many tests and 2 visits, she is doing well. Because of the lymp nodes that were taken out the remaining ones have had to reroute themselves. In the process one of them burst. That was what the intense pain was. Her dr said it was a rare thing to happen and the chance of it happening again are slim. There is nothing she can do to prevent it or to make the possibilities of it happening again greater. A fluke basically.

She looks great, way to thin in my unasked for opinion, but great, her beautiful self. She says she is feeling much better and in fact has returned to work.

Thank you to everyone who kept her, her family and us as her friends in your thoughts and prayers!

Oh Happy Day.

Now back to our Christmas cards.

I, too, was thankful to hear about your friend's return to work. I had the same experience; believe me the pain is unrelenting and very difficult. Especially when it is so unexpected ~ as it is rare! I'm 6 years out from breast cancer now ~ and, the weight returns (sigh). I will continue to pray for you friend. She sounds like my kind of 'gal' ~ one has two choices, wallow or smile. May as well smile, the other isn't a choice; and, neither changes the situation. I always just prayed that I'd show grace, and not self pity on the trip. God Bless you for being such a great friend.
