Vintage Lionel Trains Caboose
How time does go by. About 10 months ago I found my Mom near death, put her on a plane and brought her home with me and to the hospital. I had visited in March and had no idea she was not well. At age 84 mother had worked until May, 2011 when school was out for summer.
What I found in May was quite frightening as were the days and months that lay ahead. God is good. We were given wonderful medical staff in a terrific hospital. Doctors did not hide the fact they held little or no hope for any recovery. We finally got a diagnosis of Lymphoma and although there is no cure, at this time after finishing the second round of chemotherapy mom is in remission. The words thankful, gratitude, humbled, do not begin to describe how I feel.
Times were hard, not over yet but despite the mounting bills I am thankful for the here and now. Isn't it amazing how much we can learn from adversity and trial? I know many of you know just what I'm talking about because you've either been there or are there now. Let us pray for the strength of one another.
