Stepping Up to the Plate

I'm not the type of the person who just drifts through life, not wondering all the horrible 'What If's?'.

-What if someone I love gets into a horrible car accident?
-What if one of my kids gets sick?
-What if I find out I have some dreaded disease?
etc., etc.

Sometimes, I think about these things far too often than the 'average' person should.

I was shocked none the less to find out last week that Mark has cancer. If anyone should have seen a big, bad thing coming, it should have been me, right? But I really didn't. We're not sure exactly what type yet, but we're pretty sure it's cancer of the throat.

He's dealing with it amazingly well. Me, on the other hand . . .
I really thought I was strong, but now I'm feeling not so much. It's so much up and down, I feel a little insane.

Good has been coming out of it though. I hope it comes out all good in the end. Please keep us in your thoughts. We're having to step up to the plate.

Oh Renee. I am so sorry.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you SOO very much right now.

When you left that comment on my blog yesterday, it really kind of worried me. But I didn't want to pry.

Please keep me posted. I will be thinking about and praying for him everyday. Seriously.

Sending lots of hugs and love your way.

Oh Renee, I hate to hear this. I will be adding you and Mark to my prayers each day.

My Dad had neck cancer (similar to throat, I'm thinking). He had a rough time (the radiation was tough in his saliva glands),but he is doing wonderfully now. Just keep the faith and stay positive!
