Bitter Sweet Day
Friday, February 10, 2012
Today was our big day and we got to bring home our motorhome. It is as easy to drive as our van and I am sure we are going to enjoy it a lot. Folks have been stopping by to look it over and of course we are happy to show it off. We have some shopping to do to get ready for our first outing but we will be ready by the time DH gets done with treatment.
The low note to our day was finding out that Karen's pet scan showed that the cancer has spread all thru her body and the dr is not optimistic, in fact they are already talking about hospice. I haven't been down to see her tonite but plan to get there tomorrow sometime=-my brother is coming for a visit so that will keep me from going till he leaves for home. She is thinking of trying to make it to Massachusettes which is where 6 of their 7 children live but not sure she is up to the trip. I know this is hard for her and Tommy. He is just devastated. I pray that we can give her the support she will need in the coming weeks. Right now she seems to be the strong one and she is helping all of us hold it together. She has told us she is not afraid of death and knows she is going home to be with her Lord so we all take comfort in that. Please keep Karen and her family in your prayers.
