First, T H A N K Y O U ! What an awesome response to yesterday's post about Patrick. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers for such a wonderful young man. His family was humbled and grateful to read through all your kind words, prayers and comments. The biopsy went well and unfortunately it is "the best of the worse". It is cancer:: Hodgkin's Lymphoma. And while the family is devestated and heart broken they are also very grateful that Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer with good cure rates. I'm not sure they know the stage of Patrick's cancer but there is hope for complete remission... and that is what they are praying for. They will allow his body 4 or 5 days to recover from surgery and then begin with the chemo/radiation regimen to kill the cancer.
Second, every time I post I laugh at myself: "One picture a day and few to no words." What was I thinking? I am so incapable of that. I didn't even really try. So, instead you get one to two pictures everyday and lots of words! I hope you all are ok with my failure. I find it laughable.
So... the mugs. I've always wanted "diner mugs" and now I have them! I love them so much I figured they were "post-worthy". We are hosting a small group in our home on Monday nights... I could think of no better reason to finally buy the mugs of my dreams. Thick and heavy, sure to keep your coffee warm and they just plain feel good to hold! I looked online for these babies but wasn't willing to fork over $5 each. These came from the local restaurant supply store for $1.25 each. Score!
John Martin. This child that I love is still killing me. It's really in his favor that I find him so unbelievably irresistible, otherwise I'd find a baby bootcamp and send him for a week. Look at those lips. Ahh.. kissable. Anyway, we're still hoping for some sleep soon. One tooth has broken the surface of his gums and I'm hoping that now we will have some good sleep... until the next tooth rears it's ugly head! Thanks for continued prayers for him. He is still crying it out and I'm sweating it out!
