Mom doing well

As my brother, a philosophy major, said: “Things are neither as bad nor as good as they may seem.”

Mom is home from the hospital and recovering well, though we made her laugh too many times, which I’m sure hurts. But all that stress sought release in laughter. Denial? Maybe. Coping? Definitely.

The preliminary news is good – no cancer in the lymph nodes! Woohoo! The bad news: radiation is still on the horizon. The C-word when applied to any family member is pretty darn scary. Enough already.

  1. Thank goodness your mother is laughing and there is no cancer in the nodes but I am sorry to hear about the radiation coming – perhaps it’s too early to ask if she is going to go for radiation – I’m good at blunt, dumb questions that might not even be any of my business.

    Peace and love today and every day.
