and So it Goes......

Every now and then
Just when you think things are calm and going well in your life
that sun warms your shoulders
and clean, crisp air is breathed into you lungs
that your heartbeats are at a peaceful rhythm

without any warning you find yourself having to walk into the mist
the fog
the darkness of the UNKNOWN

That was my weekend
Saturday night I received a call from my youngest child
that his wife was taken to the Emergency Ward
she was very ill with uncontrolled vomiting
and dizziness

(my son and his wife)

The hospital did an immediate MRI
and found this

an unexpected mass growth on her brain

I could not believe what I was hearing
tears flooded my eyes
suddenly that clam heartbeat
took an erratic beating
I felt chilled
and felt like I was trying to "suck in air"

Sunday they performed surgery
to remove this mass

She is now in recovery and the Dr. said the operation
went well !!!
They do not expect any cancer
and she should hopefully have a Full Recovery

I know, I KNOW
that it was due to the many, many heartfelt prayers
and well wishes
on our families behalf

I was humbled and amazed by all the caring people
who "walked with me"
on Sunday

Because soon, Becky will be doing this again

smiling her pretty little face off
back to pursuing her education
in the field of Pharmacy

she is actually an intern right now
in the very hospital she was operated in

Can we all get a Fist Pump Here.

When you have come to the edge of all light that you know
and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown
Faith is knowing
one of two things will happen.
There will be something Solid to stand on
You will be taught to fly

Our family is flying high right now.
