Worse

There are worse things than finding out that your baby has Down syndrome. Like finding out your husband has cancer.

Wha- Really? I haven't read this anywhere yet...have you shared more or is this the first blurb you've put out there? I'm going to do some digging.

In the meantime, I WILL be praying--it's what I know, it's what I believe and it's the best I have to offer.

BIG *hugs*!

Oh Lisa, I don't know how you were even able to type THE word. ((((hugs))) and tears ```

Jen said...

Oh. Oh oh oh oh. Lisa. I don't even know what to say. Other than, it's just not fair. And what you said. Fuck cancer.

Lisa,
I don't know if this might be an encouragement to you.I found this lady's blog today and in this post she talks about her husband having colon cancer in Dec.2003 and him recovering.

Oh Lisa, that is terrible news and I am so, so sorry. Life really sucks sometimes.

Lisa,

I am sad to hear this news. I can only imagine how I would feel if my wife were told she had cancer. You are right - I would prefer to take many more children with Ds over cancer but God doesn't give us a choice in the matter. The fact of the matter is that we all live in an imperfect world that is filled with hurt, pain and death. And this is why I believe that there is more than this. Fight on!! I read often and consider Finn's family part of ours.

Carla said...

Oh God, Lisa. What the...
You're right, you have paid your dues. This is just not fair. I am so sorry that you are having to deal with this.
Your family will be in my thoughts.

Your right... bad things happen way too often to great people.

You & Michael are in my thoughts.

I just didn`t want to leave without letting you know that I am really sorry. Yes, cancer sucks. A friend of mine just won the battle, but she will never be able to get pregnant. She went through chemo and that stuff, and she won.

You as the family will, as well.
Sending you strenghth and prayers from germany,

Claudia

Michelle said...

I'm so sorry...and many positive thoughts being sent your way. My best friend's father is going through this very thing.

Jeanette said...

Lisa, I am heartbroken to read this! I will be praying for you and Michael. We are walking side by side with a dear friend right now in her fight with Caner. Keep fighting! HUGS!

Kim said...

Lisa, your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I'm so glad to know you have such a strong support system locally-they were amazing when Finn was in the hospital and I'm sure they'll be there for you again.

Hugs to you....

Hang in there and whatever you need just let me know. Thinking of you lots lately.

I loved your “random thoughts” blog... I love the way you write and I love reading everything you write. You are so incredibly intelligent and talented. You were spot on with this…
"And I don't believe that Christians are spared anything - not pain or suffering or sickness or loss or death.” Nobody is spared those things. Nobody. Anyone who believes that is kidding themselves. Heck, I wish it was true but no such luck : )

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!
