Thursday Thoughts

Good morning, friends!

I'm doing a little bit different type of post this morning because I need you to send up your prayers and good thoughts for my husband, Mike, today.

A favorite picnic spot - Ecola State Park, Cannon Beach, Oregon.


He was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago, and today he is having surgery.  Anxiety - producing in the best of times, but you can just imagine how we are feeling in these crazy times.

Mike loves golf!

Once he has healed from surgery, there will be additional treatment, but the doctor feels Mike's prognosis is good, and I'm focusing on that!



One of these days, when all of life gets back to normal, 
we will be walking on our favorite beach again.

Hopefully, Mike will be back home by Saturday and on the road to recovery.  Meanwhile, you'll understand if I'm absent from blogland for awhile.   Thanks for your friendship and your good thoughts and prayers.  It's so appreciated!

I'm joining LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color for "I Like Thursday."

I am so sorry that your husband has cancer. I am praying for both of you, that his surgery goes well, he heals quickly and that you both have peace during this difficult time. I will keep praying for you two. Take care.

I know exactly what you're going through since you know my husband just had cancer surgery less than 2 weeks ago (seems like ages!). Of course you and Mike will be in my prayers for healing. Come back to Blogland when you can. We'll all be here like we are here for you now! Peace.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

sending all my positive thoughts to you - I know you will not be able to be at the hospital with him this week and I am so sorry about that - that makes it even harder to have to have the phone at your side to get updates from the nurses and then from Mike when he can phone you - I'm thinking of you both

Carole @ From My Carolina Home said...

You certainly have mine! Best wishes to your husband for a full recovery. Take care of yourself too.

I have said a prayer and will continue to hold good wishes for your husband. Prayer for you as well. This is a difficult and scary time for you both. I am a Cancer survivor (since 2013)! Have faith.

Saying prayers for him now and will continue them for both of you. We'll miss your posts but it's more important for you to focus on what's going on - and we understand. Both of you take care..

Linda said...

Oh Diann, I'm feeling for you and holding you both up in prayer. I didn't see your post till today, so I assume surgery took place yesterday. How hard it must be for you, not only for Mike's surgery, but to have it taking place during the current world situation. Keep us posted as you are able, but please don't feel you have to respond to our comments. Big hugs to you.

Hi Diann! Oh, I am so sorry you and Mike are having to deal with this right now. (or anytime, for that matter). Yes, please focus on the good prognosis. I will hold you both closely in prayer. It won't be long and you'll be walking on your favorite beach and he'll be swinging the golf clubs. {{Hugs}} Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with or vent whenever you need to. I'll be checking in with you to see how he and you are doing. ~smile~ Roseanne

Oh many prayers for Mike and you. Are you prohibited from being at the hospital with him? I know that the hospitals here prohibit any family members.

I can appreciate your anxiety - not a time when I would want to be in a hospital. Will be sending prayers your way for a successful surgery and recovery.

Diann, many good thoughts coming your way. I hope everything goes well. Please take care of him and yourself. Healing prayers and hope from Baltimore --Mari

Oh, wow, that's stressful, especially with all that's going on. I'm so glad he got into the surgery itself! I know places were looking to cut back on any surgical procedures. You're in my thoughts - be safe.
