Now, I've got to say, I've known Sam and his family, for oh, what? Over 20 years. They live in our little town- have been active in the community and well, as a single parent myself when Andy was growing up, Sam and his mom and dad were/are second parents to Andrew. Andy and Sam were in Pre-school together. They were band and computer geeks together......and Sam and his brother Joe have a been a part of my life, it seems, forever!
(Andrew- my son left, Sam- Middle and their friend Frankie, who lives in my little cottage in back-members of a wedding party 2 years ago for their other lifetime friend, Nathaniel.
Now, I've gotta say, I AM a firm believer in sharing adversities and challenges with others, and "Sending thoughts and prayers out to the Universe" because I think, the more that we pray, care, think about someone in need-the better.
But, I also believe in respecting people's wishes and decisions. And prior to this point, I held my tongue/keyboard. However, Now I can say that Sam is at home with his mom. The tumor is gone. And all looks pretty good! They'll get the biopsy results soon, but the doc's all said it looks GOOD! I cried tears of Joy-so so happy that it looks well for Sam-his future and his family!
The very fact that he posted a general statement on Facebook today about his turmor and surgery AND sent me a friend request gave me a lot of hope and delight that he was, well, still SAM! A BIG relief for us ALL!
Today I spent a good part with my little friend Helen (91) running errands and if you followed my last post about her, she recieved yet ANOTHER bunch of flowers from the Snohomish PD-these came from a florist in a vase this time,,,,,and although the Police officer tried to perform a "Covert" operation-Helen CAUGHT him red handed! Vase and all! So yet again, today we dropped off a thank-you card at the Police Station---I drove, she did NOT, thank you very much!
It was a blessed Day. Sam is home and appears to be on the mend, Helen is acknowledged and respected once again. And Shell got to get out in the RARE Washington Sunshine and pull a few weeds!
Happy Monday! Think Good thoughts! Say a few Prayers!
Hugs, love and a VERY thankful BUS on the Cheek!
(Psssssst, Sam, if you're bored lying in bed and if you somehow manage to read this from the Facebook Linky thing.......I love you and hope you know that we're all hoping and praying for the BEST outcome this week!)
