Spring is here…New life begins again…Winter is over…Change comes…

On April 14th I will be having cancer and facial reconstruction surgery at the U of M hospital in Ann Arbor. I have Squamous Cell Carcinoma in my nose and very close to my left eye. It is possible that I will lose the left eye as the cancer is very close to the eye. I have a surgeon that I trust and he has made that possibility clear to me from day one. He will try to save the eye, but getting all of the cancer is the priority and I agree totally. I will be in the hospital for 7 days after the 8-10 hours of surgery. Then after 5 to 6 weeks I will have 15-20 minutes of radiation 5 times a week for 6 weeks. In addition to that I need to have cataract surgery after all that is over. And, oh yes, when the MRI was read there is a small spot on my brain! Not quite the spring and summer I was planning on. But I am okay with all of that.

I won’t preach, that’s not my job. I take photographs and sing, but I really believe that God is in Charge of my life. He has a purpose in all that happens so I will trust in Him. As I told my church last Sunday, I’ll either wake up with two eyes, one eye or in Heaven and any of those choices are okay by me.

My youngest daughter, Kitten, and her husband, Rob, will be here for close to three weeks. They will take care of the dogs, Duke and Buster and the cats, Frankie, Black, Little Grey Kitty (LGK) and Roofie while I am in the hospital then stay a week as I recover. And there are a lot of people praying for me and I appreciate each one. My friends, John and Carol have provided transportation to my appointments and more, They are my friends from church and are very special people.

So, I’m okay. Actually, more than okay, for I know “No matter what ‘ere betides, God will take care of me.”
