Fireman Birthday and a Prayer Request

These last two weeks have been trying. My mind has certainly been distracted as you will see later in this post . . .

Last week I couldn't get photos to upload. Today I noticed a teeny-tiny box asking me to agree to revised terms of service -- geez, that was all that was holding me back.





So here's the fireman jacket for the handsome 2-yr old junior fireman.








And here's his birthday card to go with it.







And then . . . my serious news. I told you in my last post of my uncle's untimely death. I feel fortunate to be in a position that I was able to spend some time with my aunt in this difficult time. During my stay, I took her daughter and my cousin Lisa, for some medical tests. That was Wednesday. On Friday she got the results. She has a brain tumor. I can't tell how frightening and devastating that news was. However, once the initial shock settled, we were told that this type of tumor (acoustic neuroma) is benign and non-cancerous. Thank you Lord! Nevertheless, it is still a sizeable tumor that must be removed in a very serious surgery and this is immensely frightening.
If you have the inclination to remember Lisa in your prayers, I would be forever grateful.

HI! My name is Kay & I had an Acoustic Neuroma 13 years ago when I was 25. Needless to say, medical technology has come a LONG way during that time and even though it is still a very serious surgery, the Dr.'s have learned a lot in that time. I do have some residual effects (my tumor was extremely large) but I have a great life! Check out my blog at threecurlygirlies.blogspot.com - you, or your cousin can contact me there. If you would like, we could then swap #'s (not publicly) - I would love to chat with her! She will definitely be in my prayers!

Yeah, thanks Lord, for the tumor! I bet Lisa really looked forward to her surgery and is enjoying the pain and nausea. Praise Jesus!
