Positive Thoughts

My father in law is having his surgery tomorrow at 8:00 am to remove the tumors caused by the mesothelioma. The doctors at the Cancer Institute have agreed to do the surgery and we are so grateful but I'm scared too. There are still serious risks as with any surgery and he will be under for around eight hours. I have been consumed with my thoughts and praying my father in law makes it through the surgery and a miracle happens so he can make it through this disease so I have been neglecting my blog. I'm still here and we're hanging in there. I'd love some positive thought and prayers to come his way.

I know my oldest lately has been feeling like something is going on. We all (both sides of the family) went out to dinner on Sunday and she said, "I miss Grandma Sue, who is my mom and passed away a year and a half ago." This morning at breakfast she told me, "Mommy I don't want you to die." It's so hard for me to realize that this is what my four year old thinks and worries about. I didn't loose any immediate family until I was 29. How amazing is that! I wish my daughter had been that lucky.
