Thank You for the Good Thoughts!

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I want to thank all my Spark Friends for all the good thoughts and kind words and heartfelt prayers sent on behalf of my DIL. She is home from the hospital with new meds that seem to working, finally, to dissolve the long blood clot in her leg.

As if a double mastectomy at age 41 wasn't enough, she had very severe pain from the clot, and of course we were all very scared because of it. She goes twice a week to have blood levels checked to keep the thinning meds at the right level. Still needs some pain pills, but the pain is lessening, slowly.

You know, you can plan your senior years perfectly and make excellent choices for your future, but when the health/life of a loved one is threatened, stress takes up residence in your own life and won't go away. The good news is, the cancer is gone completely!

    Thanks for the update on your DIL Karen. It sounds like the prayers have been answered. Just in case though I will continue to have your family in my prayers at a difficult time like this. It's great news about the cancer being gone.

    I will keep her in my prayers, Karen, and you as well. I am not stranger to stress so I know the feeling. We are dealing with lots of family health problems as well.

I'm so happy for your DIl, for you and for all of your family.

Yes, I agree: we amuse ourselves with our plans to reach perfection but when this type of thing happens to a loved one, our raw selves take over and we are completely vulnerable to the whims of nature.

Hugs, Sandra

    Karen, you have been on my mind so often these past days (maybe because my daughter also had severe blood clots, but your DIL had the added heartache of cancer surgery). Anyway, I am glad things are better...never over, but better!

I miss you tons!
