HUGS with Gratitude and Anticipation!

Before you leave I want to share our personal blessing with you. At times I'm baffled about coincidences and the timing of life events.  My husband has had a brain tumor for well over ten years. Recently we were told there is a change in the tumor. On Wednesday, August 10 he had surgery for a biopsy and debulking of a brain mass. You may be thinking, "How is that a blessing?" It is a blessing because the surgery went well and he was taken out of ICU to a regular hospital room Thursday afternoon. He may be coming home Saturday! It will take a while until the final pathology reports come back. We know it is a high grade tumor but we are hopeful that it will respond to radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

  1. Oh, Linda! I am so glad hubby came thru the surgery & is well enough to be moved. May God lay His healing hands upon the remaining issue. Prayers are lifting for you both.

    Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

    Have a beautiful weekend.
