Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

room 6139...the big one in the corner

same room
same doctor
same nurses

i went to see a friend who just recently found out he has leukemia and WOW...i was not expecting the feelings that i experienced when i walked into that cancer unit.

it was like a flood gate opened up and all these memories came pouring out...i actually admitted to his wife that surprisingly the memories were not all bad ones. i guess having spend the better part of 3 years in that environment you learn to make the best of each day.

i just am not sure how to shut them off...i actually went back to past blog entries and re-read a lot of what i wrote (some really bizarre stuff i found...sometimes i wonder who wrote that stuff)

some made me smile...some made me cry
some i remember like it was yesterday
some i had to think about and then it was "oh...i remember that"

there seemed to be a lot about the kids...looks like they were getting hurt a lot??

if i wouldn't have been the one living it i would have to say that some of it seems a bit fictional... time alone is over. kelsey made it home from field hockey camp and i am happy to say (sorry britt) that the one girl on the team that needed stitches from a hit to the head was NOT my daughter. i know...hard to believe.

update on ashley's jellyfish sting. after about 24 hours of being in pain and very sick to her stomach she has recovered just fine, although i am not sure how much actual "in the ocean" time she is getting since the sting.

two more come home on saturday.

thanks for checking in
