Terri came home (well... to our house) on Thursday.
She is getting plenty of rest & plenty of spoiling from all of the wonderful people that know & love her.
The pathology report is due tomorrow, and her follow-up with the surgeon is late Tuesday morning. We will know more then, hopefully.
Yesterday she conserved her energy so she could go with us to our usual
Saturday night restaurant, New York Pizza, in Anderson, SC. The owner
& staff are like family to us & she wanted to be able to show
them she is doing well... (and, enjoy their awesome pizza!).
We sure have good luck, Karma, angels, God, good spirits or
what-have-you on our side. This has been such a whirlwind couple of
weeks & our true friends have emerged once again to give us support,
love & assistance. We could not ask for more (well, that she never
had the tumor might be one request, but we learn from adversity...and
we cannot change what was).
(I guess it makes me feel a bit like a wimp with migraines... LOL)
Friends have offered to help at the store & refuse payment, one
thought I should not have given her a discount when she bought her items
at the end of the day, another said she would be insulted if we even
offered to pay. But their help is worth a lot to us all. To Terri so
she can feel less stress about the coverage at the store, & Dad and I
so we can at least take a few hours off each.
Dad is a real trooper, he has worked just about every day (except
Sunday) for 2 weeks. I am grateful to Phyllis for helping me watch the
shop yesterday so he could have a break. I was able to get a couple of
hours off Friday morning thanks to Mary for being an extra set of eyes
at the store & a real help for anyone looking at the stamping
I have tried to keep up with updating everyone about Terri's progress,
but it is not always easy to find the time when I have the energy.
Please forgive me if I missed anyone, it was not intentional.
Yes, this post will be cross-posted to the store's blog...
If anyone wants to help out at the store, please email the store (
email@example.com ) with days & times so we can have a written
list. A few of you have told me days, but I for some reason cannot
remember when they are...
