When it rains, it pours

As you know, last month was a bit chaotic for us (to put it mildly).

My mom had surgery for breast cancer, my uncle had a heart attack and my great-nephew was born 3 months early.

It was a bit too eventful for my liking.

Then just a few weeks ago a dear blogging friend of mine lost her baby girl just 5 months into her pregnancy.  I think about their family and cry for them.  I know that each day they heal a little more and I'm inspired by the good they can find in this situation.   They are such a wonderful couple, say a little prayer for them.

I am so very pleased to report back that mom's surgery went well.  Clear margins, clear lymph nodes and after some fantastic new oncotype testing we found out that she won't have to go through any chemo.

She's healing up from surgery and feeling better every day.

My uncle had a heart attack the day after my mom's surgery.  I've heard we lost him completely for a second there but emergency response, modern technology and his guardian angel were there to take care of him.  He has recovered and is feeling better then he has in a long time.

Baby Conner is healing from a surgery to repair a heart valve, weighs more than 3 lbs now and is growing by the day.

We really are counting our blessings every day.

  7. I'm so so glad to hear that your nephew is growing and doing better. He really wasn't that much older than my sweet baby Roo. YAYYYY for your mama. She's a fighter-after all she raised YOU. Wow, what a miracle story about your Uncle. It makes my heart happy to hear about all the good things happening in this world.

    Thank you for your prayers my sweet friend. We're healing every day like you said. The support means the world to us both.
