It's Not Over...

I was so looking forward to spending the rest of the year on the beaches of Padre Island in South Texas, soaking up the nice, warm sunshine! And traveling further west again to explore places that I missed the last time through... but sometimes, life throws you a curve ball, and "plans" change.

The Journey has made a U-turn and is on Indefinite Hold. After several very nice days in the Texarkana, Texas area (one day was in the mid-70s!!), I'm back in Indiana.

I'm fine – it's my Mother – she has some medical problems that are far more serious than we were originally told. She goes to the doctor on Wednesday for a scope to determine the size of a tumor in her colon and to take samples to send off to see if it is cancer. We probably won't know anything definite until after Christmas. Once we know what it is we will know what course of action needs to be taken. And we'll do what needs to be done. And hope and pray for a positive outcome.

In the meantime, I'll have the wonderful memories of the many fantastic places I've been these past 15 months and the dreams of the places yet to be seen... It's Not Over!

It is always nice to read your posts, but this news was a surprise. I'm sorry to hear about your mother, and of course, am hoping it isn't anything serious. That would be the best Christmas / New Year's gift for all. I'll say prayers and hope they work.

Thank you, everyone. I truly appreciate the kind thoughts and prayers. The prognosis is not good. We'll know more early next week when the test results come back.

Becky,

I will say a prayer for your mom and entire family. It is always difficult to have loved ones ill over the holidays.

A little Christmas Box for you:
"Sláinte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mná go deo." [Gaelic translation: Health to the men, and may the women live forever!]
