This is the face of cancer? Really?

This guy, this one, in the pacifier and the overalls is going to have his head opened up tomorrow. Today, Thomas put the pieces of a model brain back together while the neurosurgeon tried to explain this to us.

It passed me by in the office - I was busy trying to keep Thomas from breaking all the model innards, although really, I could imagine myself saying, "Oh, don't worry, honey, he'll just put it on our tab."

Now, though, I keep wanting to vomit, thinking of it.

My two pastor-friends and my 70-something neighbor lady all swore when they heard that the cancer was back, and that, my friend, is the only correct answer to that news.*

*i do, however, appreciate your good thoughts and prayers during the surgery and recovery.

I've never commented here before, but I've been following Thomas' story through your blog since Gordon mentioned him many months ago. I just wanted to tell you that I too will be praying for Thomas tomorrow, and for you & Scott, too.

May God's blessings, grace, and healing be with Thomas and his doctors, and with you, tomorrow.

Another stranger here, but I have posted before. My mother is friends with Scott's mother.

My thoughts and prayers are with little Thomas today. May the surgery go smoothly and a quick recovery to follow.
God bless,
