Resting Place

Sept 9

Romans 8:28 is true. Not EVERYTHING that happens in life is "good," but somehow, when God takes everything "together," He makes it become good.

Imagine if you took the ingredients for homemade brownies and tried to swallow the eggs, and the oil, and the salt individually, it wouldn't seem "good." But mixed up together, it IS good (borrowed from another cancer survivor).

Surgery went quickly, which is oh so good. The pain was more intense than before. Not sure if it hurt just as bad last time, or if the pain from the other two incisions clamored for more attention.

Vic has gone back to work since I am able to take care of myself. I believe he has taken the knives with him to work as I am a little dingy on the pain meds. And some of you brattier people would reply with, "when aren't you dingy". But I love you still. I have table knives that I can use . . .wonder how long it will take to cut an apple with one?

Today is just a resting day and that is what I am going to do!


  1. Oh Dear Lord!! Please tell me Pop took the knives with him! Dingy? You? No way. Not my mother. I am glad you are home and well. McKenzie was happy to hear that you were home. We all LOVE YOU!!

  2. Hi Renee -- I got a couple of weeks behind, and missed being there for you during your surgeries. I'm waiting with ya to hear that they got *every suspicious cell* and you can start healing again.

    I'll try to get the Goosic list to find some living cousins for ya.

    Very Gentle {{{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}},

    Your cousin just up the road in Black Diamond

  3. Thank you Valerie!!! Especially the gentle hugs. lol I've updated the blog with more information on who/what I was able to find on the Fletcher side of my family.

  4. Christy - it runs in the family. Not sure which side tho.

  5. It says "Resting Place," so.... are you "resting?"
    You know you're not, so get in there right now, and lay down and "blow the whistle" to be waited on. Or maybe a "bell?" Anything to drive them all crazy!!! You just sit back, and start "ordering!!!"

    Love you!

  6. Keeping my fingers crossed for clear margins on your pathology report. Remember, 'negative margins' is good. This first time I read Linda's pathology I saw 'negative margins' and thought that was bad :)

    I'm adding you to my blogroll (if that's okay with you).



  7. Thank you, John! I am anxiously awaiting the results and have faith that they are good.
