Well, got some bad... or shall I say scary new this weekend, as well as some wonderful new today. So lets start with the scary, get it over with and get to hoping that things are going to be ok. Well on Friday actually I found out that the bf's little niece has a growth on her thyroid along with something happening to her pituitary gland (I believe). This is very scary as she has been in remission from cancer for over a year now. She was so little when she was diagnosed with cancer.. at just only about a year old. So she grew up in hospitals and with tubes in her. She went through all that for a few years before finally after everything she was in remission. Now this comes. More bumps, more tests, more hospital. His mom is flying down.. or well over.. there this week. She'll be there to help with the other kids while the parents are trying (and praying I'm sure) that this will just be a plain old nothing growth and everything is fine. Meanwhile we're here praying and still wearing our Team Alexis bracelets. The only reason I take mine off when I get home, is because it's too big and it can fall off my wrist; if mine fit it would always been on. I try and be optimistic because she is such a strong little girl. So fun and filled with laughter and boy she knows what she wants. I have no doubt that she can kick cancers butt again, but why should she have to. Why should any little one.. or any person have to instead of just being healthy. These aren't questions I or anyone else for that matter can answer, although I wish I could. Maybe I wouldn't like the answer though. So if you just happen to be reading this, say a little prayer or send a good thought up into the universe for Alexis. She could use it and so could the whole family. Thanks.
Now on to the good news. I just found out that one of my good friends is pregnant. Her and her husband have been wanting and trying for a baby for a few years now, and while they said they would leave it up to God, it still was hard. Just a few months back they were thinking about going into the foster program so at least they could help and love a child who needed it very much. Now they are preparing for their own little one and she is very excited and I am sure very nervous. I haven't talked to her directly yet, she text messaged me (oh the wonders of technology!) with the good news a little bit ago. So I am very excited for her and her husband. I'm sure they will be wonderful parents.
Times they are a changing. Just goes to prove that just when you think life is standing still, we get a jolt and realize that maybe it's not so still after all. Sometimes the changes are good, sometimes they are bad and sometimes nothing changes at all; or at least that we know of. We just have to deal with them as best as we can and know that either way, like the weather... just wait 5 minutes and it'll change.
