wednesday's least favorite thing: the c-word

what do you do the morning of the day you find out not IF your mom has cancer... but what kind of cancer she has?
work a few hours as if my entire world isn't going to change in the next 4 hours?
think about how beautiful she will be in her pink dress on my wedding day in just short 5 months?
continue to be relieved that the pain that has been cursing her for the past 4 months is finally gone?

we are all being very optimistic!  i am trying NOT to think of the probability, prognosis, staging, statistics, and measures that i studied for years and discuss with patients on a regular basis...  but also can't help it!

we will continue to live!
we will continue to laugh!
we will continue to love!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Rom 8:28
