Tami and Dad update

Sunday, May 12, 2013

For those who have asked, Tami is doing incredibly well. She did have a double mastectomy, and the pathology report did show that she had the inflammatory breast cancer tumors in the other breast, contrary to all the scan and blood work tests. So she is relieved she trusted her own gut instinct on this, along with the advice of her surgeon.. She is recovering so well, and her attitude is marvelous. She thanks everyone for their prayer and support.
(She is at for anyone interested)

My beloved Dad is moving ever closer to that final threshold that we can see. Hospice has been very helpful, and my Mom is coping as well as one could hope for. Dad just celebrated his 87th birthday this past Monday, and we were so aware these were the last birthday cards we would ever get him. Those caused a lot of tears for each of us.
It is our faith that gives us strength and hope, knowing that the love we share does not end with death, but lives on always. I keep returning to the reality that when we were in our mother's womb we never knew what awaited us. That birth was a death to all we knew. And this death on earth that each of us faces, will be a birth into something we do not yet know. Yet I place all my hope and trust that it will be good, loving and more "than we can possibly dream or imagine". Thank you for your prayer and support.

    Your last paragraph is so beautifully written. I'd never thought about birth and death as being so closely tied together. That really bears further contemplation. As always, my prayers are with you and your family. So glad Tami is doing so remarkably well. She obviously comes from great stock! Blessings on you.
