From out of the wood-work they came...

Wow. Can I just say, my friends (and family) ROCK?! I've had so many wonderful letters of support, and offers to help, it really is amazing. Thank you all.

I keep thinking: at least he's young. He's healthy. He will fell BETTER after the surgery. He WILL GET BETTER. We WILL travel to China in a year, and pick up our beautiful daughter (who could be born any day now). After that, I want to stay home and take care of my family. I'll throw a party. Everyone who has offered support, and time, and encouragement will be invited. Hell, I might even let people who HAVEN'T OFFERED support come. (I'll see how I feel. LOL)

Today's big shocker - a very dear friend - whom I no longer speak to for somewhat ambiguos reasons - phoned in her support last night. And everytime I tell this story (about how we found out about Tod's heart condition) it makes me cry, so when she called, I was a total mess. It was emotional for a number of reasons. I don't know what to make of it, other than, I guess maybe she still loves us as much I we still love her. (And she call call anytime she wants)

And, as much as I hate to say it, maybe SOME good will come of this mess.

Until then, I will make it through, thanks to friends and family near and far, close and distant, and with luck, by the grace of god.

ENOUGH. On to better things:
I thought I'd open this up to others. I'm putting together a "bucket o' fun" (thanks Jen for the idea!!) for Tod while he is recooperating. If you were to add one CD or book, or movie, what would it be and why? I'll go out and buy a few off this list next week or so.

So glad to hear that you are back in contact with an old friend. Amazing how your real friends always resurface during hard time.
