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.

    I'm happy for you regarding the RV - enjoy it!

    I'm lifting Karen and Tommy and you all in prayer. I know how hard it is to have a beloved friend dying from cancer; but like you, she was ready to go to Heaven. Knowing that gave me a measure of comfort, and I hope that you, too, will gain comfort from knowing that Karen is ready. Just think: in (whatever time) she will be looking into the face of Jesus!

    God bless you as you deal with all this.

    The news about Karen is very sad. She seems at peace and my heart goes to her husband and family. I will keep them all in my prayers. May God give them courage and strength to get through this. And may God bless you for being there for them.

    This was a favorite of a lady that passed last year. The church was praying for her and she was content with God's Will. I will still be praying for Karen and for all of you.

    Enjoy your RV.

    sounds like a very strong woman.
    Enjoy your motorhome when you get a chance to use it. Just
    wait until it is a little warmer. HUGS!
