I've been up for a couple of hours now in the middle of the night so I'm just spending a little time sparking.
Some of you know from my last blog that I have a friend in the hospital with cancer. The very worst of news came yesterday that there is nothing the doctors can do this time. The cancer has spread and the tumors cannot be removed. Depending on recovery from this surgery there is weeks to possibly 9 months to live. He will be leaving behind a wife and three kids - a 12 year old, a senior in highschool and a college student.
I'll be going to the hospital on Sunday to visit them. They actually live in another city and just here because of the doctor. I just don't have any words to know what to say at this point.
I continue to be grateful that my husband got out of his cancer scare through surgery with no need for chemo or radiation but things like this for my friend scare me that something might come back in the future. I think cancer is a scary thing that never really leaves your mind once it's been there for any reason. My husband had prostate cancer that was all removed and my friend had pancreatic cancer. They thought they had removed it all but that kind of cancer is so bad. Well all kinds of cancer are bad. I hope that one day they find a complete cure for this dreadful disease.
Anyway - I was awake for a number of reasons one of which was a cramp in my hip. We are doing major overhaul at my house and I spent the day moving some furniture and on my feet much of the day. I absolutely love my TP Therapy Grid which is a type of foam roller. I used that for about 20 minutes and I feel much better. Just spending a few minutes sparking and drinking some water before I try and go back to bed.
When I get up in a few hours it will be grocery shopping and then a little baking. We are having a family time this afternoon to decorate both of our trees. They have been up for a few weeks with no ornaments so the cats could play in them without jeopardizing all our ornaments. Hopefully they have that out of their system!
