My son, Ian, called me at work about noon to give me a report on the doctors visit for Don. He says the doctor thinks it is a benign tumor, but it could be malignant. Most of the tumors in this area of the brain are benign. They are going to watch it for 8 weeks and then make a decision as to what needs to be done. Don is travelling home from Birmingham now, and I will get more details when he gets here. My smart son, the one who I birthed, who learned at my knee for many years, who takes after me in so many ways....recorded the visit and will send me a copy of the recording. So, I can hear the whole thing for myself. Yes...he's a smart one, a real keeper. I feel real good knowing he is using that way too expensive recording device that he just HAD to have to stay current in all his classes. And, truth be told, he knows I would ask way too many questions that he would have to answer, so this is a much easier and more efficient way.

I'll fill you in when I have more info. Thanks for caring and praying!

Love and prayers!

You forgot to mention how handsome he is!

I'm amused again - this time by your son. I was just going to say that I thought the idea of recording the visit with the specialist was the greatest thing, then I saw his comment! He is your son, for sure!!

That is good news about the tumor!

HE is, of course, the most handsome young man you have seen in a long time. Girls swoon when they see him...each hoping THEY will be the one he chooses as his very own. But, he has his own set of standards. And he has set them HIGH. He has too many wonderful qualities to mention here...but the one that impresses me most is his HUMILITY! :)

Very smart idea. I would never have thought of recording the visit. Keep us informed on the medical stuff.

Happy Nurses' Week!

Humility or's a close call.
