I stopped to watch- being mindful of transitions of all kinds–from one season to another, life phase to life phase. I used to leap past these moments, without much thought- simply checked out, distracted with food, shopping, kids, internetting, etc. never really appreciating what change usually brings and appreciating the past. Now I try to catch myself in those in-between moments.
All his pre-op stuff will be done in the next few days (in Seattle). We're both a little tired but ready to move on and get stuff done.
Meanwhile.... until surgery next week- Terence is starting a new treatment that will 'disable' his bladder function, so he will have to self- cath every few hours.....this will be less painful for him. He starts today.
Keep him in prayer, it will still be a LONG week while he waits!!!
I enjoyed my trip to Vegas (marking the close of summer) :D...it was a special trip and very fun (flew out for a reunion with my sisters and first cousins), but upon return I hit the ground running, getting ready for this next phase or season of treatment for Terence.
