Good and bad

Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Will Rogers

(twin fawns / Julie Cook / 2016)

Aren’t they precious?
Twin little fawns…
just so sweet…


When they get a little older,
they will eat all of my flowers and plants…

So they are both good and bad…

Much like today…

both good and bad….

The good news is that the Oncologist told us the battery of tests and scans show
no cancer in Dad’s lung’s or bones…just in the muscle of the bladder wall…

But there is a relatively large ascending aortic aneurysm…which is bad…
very very bad….

The good news is that he thinks a regime of chemo and radiation
may be successful on the cancer…

But we should now go see a Thoracic specialist…
I’m sorry…
I forgot,
how many doctors does that make we need to see?

The good news is that I took an arsenal of prescribed pills last night hoping
to be able to drive to Atlanta today without withering in pain…

I did indeed drive, with the pain being more tolerable…
but the pills made me feel as if I was going to
either pass out or throw up…or drop my head hoping for lala land….

And that mind you…. is with just one pill,
I have to work up to 3 a day…

The good news is we head to the radiologist on Monday
The bad news is we head to the radiologist on Monday

The good news is that this Oncologist thinks a combined treatment could have some success…
The bad news is that dad is wended just walking from the bathroom to the den,
having to sit down before passing out, and that is hoping he doesn’t fall en route.

Hence why he now travels outside of the house via wheelchair….

The bad news is that Dad is feeble and frail—
As the question begs…
Can he tolerate what now awaits come Monday…

The good news being…
we will just wait wait and see…

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ,
after you have suffered a little while,
will himself restore you and make you strong,
firm and steadfast.
To him be the power for ever and ever.

(1 Peter 5:10-11)

    I will keep you in my prayers as always. Today I’m taking my niece to visit my sister who is no longer able to recognize my other niece – this has occurred very quickly as I was there only a couple of weeks ago. This turn of events is very hard on my nieces. the good news is that my niece and I will enjoy the two hour drive together. I hope you are able to have a restful day knowing that all of us rest in the hands and heart of our Lord.

    • Thank you Lynda—I know this loss of memory and recognition is hard on all of you–especially you no doubt as you watch a piece of yourself, your own sister, fade…
      very hard indeed—so prayers to Canada as well!!!!
      Hugs from a very hot south…still! Looking forward to Fall

        Julie, you will find this interesting I think. My sister is also adopted but I never think of that; it just came to mind when you mentioned “a piece of yourself”. Yes she is a piece of myself even if not biologically! We are all a piece of each other.

      • Really?? That’s wild– and like me- dad is dad and that is all 😌

  4. Reblogged this on Talmidimblogging and commented:
    Pray for comfort and piece of mind!

  5. Continuing to pray for you and your family.

  6. Just give it all to God and His will be done! That’s all any of us can and should ever do. πŸ™‚ ❀
