So here it is in a nutshell
Thurs. April 1st: Mom's surgery ~ my brother did decide to go up to be with my parents for the surgery so he was also there when the rest of us came thundering in... 5 adults & 4 little people!
Friday April 2nd: An uneventful plane trip up north...aside from the normal stresses of flying with a
Saturday April 3rd - Thurs. April 8th: Enjoyed a wonderful trip with family and friends exploring Maine, laughing, playing games, watching a great movie...The Blind Side...celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior, and a whole bunch more laughing!!
Oh and I guess you are wondering about the test results from mom's surgery? FREE & CLEAR - no cancer left- margins are clean! She will still have to have radiation treatment in a few weeks which is standard treatment.
( Radiation therapy usually follows lumpectomy to eliminate any microscopic cancer cells in the remaining breast tissue.)
Thurs. April 8th - got up at 3:00 AM - to catch a shuttle to the airport to catch a 6:00 AM flight- now that was exciting!! Home by lunch time!
What a week! I had such a relaxing time ~ maybe with the exception of the airport days ~ enjoying the most beautiful weather that I know God delivered just for us!! Hey, I know my God is a personal God and he intends to do good for His children, and if that means giving us some 70 degree days in April in Maine (which is very atypical) I say thank you God!!! I am always "mom & dad sick" when I get home. (my home is with my man and little girl so "homesick" doesn't seem like a right word usage but you know what I mean) but I so enjoy my time with my folks that I am willing to be a little sad when I return!
So without any further ado...here are some of highlights of the week.
