We talked....

It's interesting how resilient children are. They survive parenting by mortal humans (though may require deliverance from God later) and usually they're pretty happy about it.

Mini-Me and I talked about our friend. Today we found out that the doctor isn't holding out much hope for long term recovery - but we know how wrong the doctor can be. He's only human after all. I've been up front and honest with Mini-Me about the news. I'm letting her read the e-mails as they come to in box.

Today, the e-mail said that perhaps it wasn't a stroke after all but seizures.
she asked "What's a seizure?" I told her to the best of my ability -- and she said, "So it's like getting a charlie horse in your head?"

Something like that.

You know what I've noticed?

Her faith is amazing. She doesn't realize that's what it is - but it is faith. Pure and simple.

Thank you all for your comments and encouragement. I truly felt good and hugged - She received and understood. Now we just wait and see. Wait and pray.

Kids do take a lot in stride. I did. But that doesn't mean that I've forgotten them even after all these years. I still remember all the deaths of those I knew when I was little.

The way you handle it is obviously helping yours. You go, Mom!

hey, I just wondered how things are going on this front. We had a dear (adopted grandpa from our church) friend die (of pancreatic cancer) a few years back. We walked with him and his wife through the process... it was very very hard and very very beautiful. I am praying for you all.
