this is life.....

my sister Judith, has just found out that she has squamous cell carcinoma on her nose. She had a piece of tissue taken out last week, cancer is in the margins... now the Drs want to do a punch biopsy in 4 weeks when she has healed to see how far it has gone. She is scared. I know exactly about being scared like that. You lie awake, alone with your thoughts. no-one can take the fear away. You can talk to many people but you alone are the one who has to deal with this.
Judith my sister and I have had our differences over the years. We have grown apart, come back together, gone our separate ways and moved away... but we come back together when there is a family crisis. This time it is my turn to support her through a frightening time in her life. I try to be strong, but I don't feel like I am. I feel helpless. I worry. what if.......
Please, please keep her in your prayers and thoughts.

then there is my brother-in-law - (my SoulMate's brother).. who has just found out he has a brain tumour and is having surgery on Tuesday to remove the tumour - please keep him in your prayers and thoughts also.

Prayers and the loving thoughts that go with them are the most powerful thing ever.... we say 'all we can do is pray'. yes that is ALL we can do. And it is enough.

G'Day Rob,
Tough times eh. They come to us all sometimes. (((HUG)))
I had a squamous cell carcinoma removed from my arm. It was a small one and is o.k. now. Always pays to check up on everything. I pray both your loved ones heal.
Isn't it funny that sometimes we don't think we are so close to people until something happens and we need to pull together. That is healthy. I often looked at my kids fight when they were younger, but let anyone from outside say anything against the other and they stood together.
