I thought I should finally share this with you guys because I know some people really care about others here.
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. A few days before Christmas she was going for tests and stuff, and getting radiation and all
that. They figured out they caught it early and it didn't spread or anything and they said she should probably be fine.
Well two days ago was the surgery. They took out the tumor. The area near it was tested and it didn't look like it spread anywhere else.
So I'm very very thankful for her being alright. How they caught it in time because she had regular checkups. And very happy the surgery went
And I'm so thankful for our family. We have a big Italian family, my brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, you know. And everyone
cares so much. 6 of us went to the hospital with her. She was so embarrassed lol. The nurse kept telling her how good of a thing it was.
And while a few of us were with her, there was plenty more at her house. They made sure everything was clean and good for her. A bunch were cooking
all day for her and us. So when she got home that day everything was all set.
Family from states hours away drove here, everyone made time to see her. 2 of them slept over her house to make sure everything was alright until we
all came back the next day, and they are still there. In fact I think there were more people over after the surgery than go over for Christmas. And in
a little bit we'll be going back over.
The day after the surgery she was getting phone calls from all kinds of family friends, anyone that knew her was calling and seeing how she was, a
bunch of people sent flowers and they went in her bedroom and living room. So many people really care. And for that I'm thankful, grateful,
happy...any other words that mean the same thing...
