How long has it been? A month?

How long has it been since Don was diagnosed .. a month, two months? 
Nope, just last week. How could that be? How can a week be so long? 

We have been very high strung and I for one, am getting tired from it. 

We are starting to settle into reality. It's been surreal to say the word cancer. 
To see the word oncology on the signs pointing to our destination.

 Nurses, computer screens, appts., probings, parking, lots of people. 
Lot's of decisions being made with long term consequences. Do we really have choices? Or are the decisions already made? 

Don has a GREAT attitude, he makes it so easy on US. He doesn't complain or whine about anything. 
It's almost like a mystery ride .. wondering what will happen next? 
All the while, trusting that the engineer has it all under control. 

I'm pretty sure I don't understand the train that's coming down the track or how we will be effected by it. 
We will have to take this journey one day at a time. 

A friend said that the Lord's grace is here for us today and if we live in today we are amply supplied with the strength we need, it's when we try to take on tomorrow as well that is when we find difficulty in coping. 
So - here today and that is all.

I love how matter-of-fact you are. That you can take it all in -- curiosity and humor intact, little to no drama, watching what God is unfolding day by day -- is such a gift. Thank you for letting us "come along" as well.
We love you and are praying.
