A Little News on Rudy

Sorry I didn't get something posted earlier today. It was just a busy day until about 8:30 and I truthfully didn't feel like writing, but I've been asked by a couple how Rudy is doing so I feel now I must say something.

The update on Rudy has mixed reviews. He came through the surgery and was responsive in recovery and ICU -- knew family that sort of thing which is very good. The down side is that the surgeons weren't able to get all the tumor. I don't know what that mean exactly; what little I heard today had already been through several hands. Also the word is there won't be results from the lab work for about a week. Continue to pray for him and his family. This is a tough time of year to have to be around a hospital.

Also I have a blogger friend who found out that she lost her baby at 11.5 weeks. This is her second miscarriage and my heart hurts for her tonight also. Then Winnie had her first chemo on Monday and the email I got from her tugged on the heart also. I haven't heard anything from my other friend lately about whether her baby is growing inside her or exactly what the prognosis is there or what they plan to do.

So tonight I'm just not in the mood to type something light. Or to find a cute picture to post. I just have a heavy heart.

I guess not that I've said all that I will let you know that it isn't all bleak here. I have gotten some things of my To Do list. Presents are wrapped, I've finished my duty at the Church kitchen, some laundry has been done and some things have been cleaned. There is still more to do, but I feel sure it will happen.

I will continue to pray for Rudy and his family and for your other friends as well.

Sending you loving thoughts and positive energy as you face these losses. Rudy, Winnie and your bloggy friend with her second miscarriage will be in my prayers. My neice had 4 miscarriages and then carried 3 healthy babies to term so she & her husband have a lovely family several years after those early heart-aches.
Hugs and blessings,
