Remission and Flat tire
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
What a combo huh? Today we received the greatest news we could…Daddy is in remission. For those that don’t know - Daddy has small cell lung cancer. It was diagnosed while still in the limited stage (meaning it had not spread). We don’t know how long this will last…but I intend to celebrate it every day that it does! We go back for a check up in three months. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers
Now on to the flat tire - As we were leaving the doctors office, I thought the car felt funny and wondered if I had a flat tire…then the car seemed to be ok so I drove down to the bottom of the hill to the gas station to get some milk. (about 1/8 mile) Daddy went in to get it and after he came out I backed out to leave….I felt something again and put it in drive and went about 3 feet and knew something was wrong….got out and checked – and yep - flatter than a fritter! And off the rim…I don’t know how bad it is damaged…my husband – who came to rescue us – took it back with him to work to see if he can fix it. I will know when he gets home. (and yes, I actually can change a tire myself, but it’s much nicer to just be able to call hubby to come do it for me – and besides…Daddy didn’t want me to change it and I had to agree or he was going to try to change it!)
The flat tire would usually just ruin my day – but not today – today it just made me laugh. Nothing compares to the fact that my DADDY IS IN REMISSION!
edit - for those wondering - tire was ok and it is back on the car!
