Walk With Me

Life is full of twists and turns; some delightful, some bittersweet, and then there are those you wish you could just read about—for someone whose name might be familiar but not your friends or family and certainly not yourself. You could tsk tsk and shake your head in sympathy and then go about your own business of chores and work and fun.

but life isn’t always like that. And sometimes those unfortunate things happen to you or your family or your friends.

Last November, my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer. It took all of November and December before a plan could be made for his care—waiting is hard—what should we do? Should we visit with granchildren? They are more likely to have a respiratory illness and that would delay any sort of treatment. Church? Should we make plans for things we’ve always wanted to do–but then when could we do them?

After anxious days that turned into weeks, he finally had a definitive treatment in mid January. Now we must wait to see if that treatment was effective.

Waiting is not easy and neither of us really want to exercise our patience.

His next appointment is in early May.

We haven’t changed much about our daily routne; things just seem to take longer. His siblings call frequently to inquire as to his status and he is looking forward to his next family reunion in late September.

But there is more to the story.

    He’s lucky to have you by his side and family to ask how he is…
