A dear friends mum had surgery to remove a brain tumour today. And when I asked him if he needed someone to be with him, he didn’t say, “no, I’ll be fine”. So I spent the day at the hospital with him and his sister while they waited for the call to tell them that she was ok. The anticipated wait time was 2-3 hours, but it was four hours before the phone rang, and nearly another two before they could go in and see her.
They got 95% of the tumour, but it was malignant, and aggressive. Next up radiation therapy, and possibly chemo.
On the way home from the hospital I learned that one of my uncles has melanoma, and it has spread to one of his lymph nodes.
Please, no more bad news for just a little while…
And here is a picture of a small boy having a massage in a tropical paradise.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend’s mother and your uncle.
I’m so sorry to hear this. Sending all possible good vibes in the direction of your friends.
Sorry to hear. Cancer sucks big time!
It does seem to “pour”…and pour a lot sometimes.
Sometimes what seems terrible and hopeless…doesn’t turn out quite as we expected.
My Brother-in-Law in on his 3rd brain tumor. Had 2 removed. He’s not as healthy as he once was, but he had the first tumor out about 20 years ago. I’m beginning to seriously suspect he’ll outlive us all.
He’s a good man and I’m very glad he’s still making this journey with us.
You never know what will happen.
Wishing peace, healing, and support to a variety of good folks in Australia.
