Deeply Saddened

Today has been a really tough day for me. I found out this morning that a person dear to my heart has cancer. About a month or so ago he had a tumor removed from his heart the size of a baseball. At the time, the doctors told him it would not be cancerous, they never are they said, but then last week he got the news that it was indeed malignant. Only in 1%-2% of the cases is it cancerous. And he gets to be the lucky 2%.

My heart is very heavy today. We don't know to what extent the cancer has grown, or if it's spread or if by some miracle they got all the cancer with the operation to remove the tumor. He's got an MRI coming up to help with that information.

I don't know why this has happened to him. It's not for me to know or understand, I think. But I am so saddened that this wonderful person, who is the father of my niece whom I adore, has had this come into his life. Why him? He's a warm hearted, caring, giving person and I don't want to think of him not here. Of course, like I said, it's not for me to know or understand. But it's hard not to be angry or upset. I think acceptance of this one is going to take me a very long time. My prayers are shooting for full recovery on this one, won't you join me?

You're in my prayers, dear one. ~Peacemom
