Good News

We just returned from Dave's doctors appointment, and we have received some good news. The tumor hasn't grown much. We were also waiting on a second opinion about radiation as our next course of treatment, and that is a go, so no surgery for awhile. Luckily the tumor grows slowly, so we have time on our side. Thankfully, all of the prayers, good thoughts, and positive energy must have been heard and answered! We are truly grateful, and so very blessed.

I will leave you with a poem that I wrote for Dave awhile back, because, well...I love him so much.


For David

Hold out your hand
and place gently in mine.
The feel of our fingers,
our souls intertwined.
Can you hold on
when my spirit drifts away?
I promise to come back,
I have just lost my way.

Reach out and find me.
Don't ever let go.
We wonder some days,
but our love,
it still grows.
There are those moments.
We're weary and worn.
they can hurt,
leaving hearts feeling torn.
Repairs will be made.
Cried tears always dry.
We trip
and we stumble,
and yet we still try.
On this journey together,
our love never dies.

Hold out your hand
and place gently in mine.
our souls intertwined.

I'm so glad to hear his appt. went well. It is a relief to know it is slow growing. I wish both of you more success with his treatment.

I do understand how you feel, though for me, it is with the canine world. I'm so hopeful this treatment will be further researched and used for humans and glioblastomas and other brain tumors.
