Tonight at dinner was great! Almost like old times w/o me making the dinner. (Big Praise there!) At our home we have a tradition of going around the table and each sharing what our "High" of the day was and then what our "Low" was. It is great to hear the responses from our younger ones. You really are able to grasp what is important in their world. It also opens up the lines of communication. Aunt Dee Dee & Grams have been able to see the dinner hour unfold. I hope it has been a blessing to them as well.
Carter - "high" last night (Monday) was that he got to play football at afternoon recess.
His "low" - he said "I didn't have one". Yeah! That was a relief to mommy's heart.
Cole's "high" on Monday eve was that there is a mole problem at school and that he along with the other boys made up "traps" to get the moles. Something with sticks to stop him in his tracks - I presume. (Don't you just love boys?) Watch out mole at CCS. middle Our middle child is on the loose.
He also did not have a "low" last night. A delightful surprise to me.
HighCarter - football again, Cole: playing football with the older boys at recess
Stuart: He "sang" the whole time during the family dialogue. He was happy to see us all together.
LowCarter: Did not finish his math paper in the time allotted.
Cole: The mole is still there.
Stuart: I would assume it would be he does not like mommy going to another part of the house. (ie: he is used to seeing me lying in bed in the Master Bedroom & checks on me often) If I am not there, he cries loudly"MOMEEEEE". Not knowing if & when I will return. (I am usually in the bathroom, little "S".)
Daddy: His low every evening is "Getting out of bed in the morning." Yes, the Indiana family knows that he is NOT a morning person.
OK - For all those praying & needing some details . . . .
1. Doctors appointments in the next few days. We should find out the extended pathology report at that time & also know what treatment to go forward with. Pray that we have wisdom in what questions to ask and to decipher ALL the info being brought to us. I only wish we could carry a Google search engine with us to the appointments. Praise that we, are having another set of ears at each office visit
2. If & when to seek a second opinion in regards to a cancer doctor. Hematologist, Dr. Leonard White, will be overseeing my care from this point on since he is the specialist.
3. We will let you know of any needs as they arise.
4. I am feeling quite well. I think I am in a fog. But a peaceful one. PRAISE: No intense headaches like before.
Much love, your friend,
