seems a little perkier (definitely quacking more),
but I'm not sure if it is the beginning of his
recovery or the meds and diet changes that are
helping him. I took this photo of him in the sun
He's going to
see Dr. Otka on Wednesday for his ultrasound.
Hopefully we can rule out cancer and continue to
help him along towards recovery. I'm definitely
going to be stressed for a while with worry.
I went to
church yesterday and when the pastor asked where we
saw God this past week I promised Young Matthew that
I'd speak up for great friends like Jenn and Kat,
for all the messages of love and support and in
Pastor Wanda's emails, which have all kept me going
through this extremely difficult time. But when it
came time to speak up, all the words just got caught
in my throat along with a thick lump of pain, so
Pastor Wanda spoke up for me and uplifted Young
Matthew in prayer along with everyone else who
needed it, and then someone I've never met before
came over to my lonely little pew and put her arms
around me and handed me a tissue and hugged me
through his prayer. I wish I could have stayed
afterwards to thank her, but I had to race out the
door to get back home for his second feeding of the
was really nice...
In other news, Mr. Moon-Moon needs some minor
surgery on a cyst on his inner, right eyelid. He
goes in next Tuesday 1/31 to have it taken care of.
He's been on meds for a couple weeks now, but it
didn't help any, so surgery ought to take care of it
for him. Poor fellow...
