Early Christmas Gifts

on December 20, 2017

As I left bay #5, I almost bumped into what I thought was a visitor, and she was, but she was more.

“Hi, Remember me? I was here a few months ago. You took care of me.”

I didn’t recognize her face or name, but  I recognized her genuine smile.

“There is something …, but I can’t put my finger on it.”

She waited for a sign of recognition. “You must meet so many people, I’m so sorry. I’m here supporting a friend. ”

I really wish I could have remembered her name. I think what I remember was her fear.

“Oh,, please, don’ t apologize.”

” Susan, I just  wanted to tell you everything  turned out well. They did wide margins and got all the cancer out!”

I was so happy I almost lunged at her with a hug.


Christmas gifts are everywhere.

    We don’t often get to hear the next chapter. What a blessing that she returned to share the news with you!

    My grandson had harsh, bitter cancer treatments at NIH through an experimental program. He was warned that the chemo he received could make him unable to conceive children, but through prayers, time and IVF, he hopes to become a father by September.
