Let the healing begin!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments and prayers! It has been so inspiring to know others are keeping us in their thoughts as we go through this journey.
The surgery was difficult but it went well and they removed the whole tumour. For now the doctor just wants him to heal from this and then we will see what further treatment he needs. The first few nights were difficult in the hospital but with a little medical help last night he slept for the first time! What a blessing!
I am so thankful that this is the March break and I am off from work. We had planned to go to Ottawa to see our new granddaughter but those plans had to change. She is planning to come up and visit us later this spring. So while I waited through the surgery, I sewed this little Amish Puzzle Ball for her. There were others in the waiting room with us and we had a great discussion on what other populations would benefit from these little balls...so many ideas!
In the days before the surgery the kids wanted to make something for him so when he woke he would know we were there. Of course what wraps you in love and hugs better than a blanket? So they went to work, they found the perfect pirate fabric and started to tie.
