I took my 9 year old daughter to adoration this evening after VBS at the Parish where I work. We stopped in to say a quick prayer for mrangelmeg who had some disappointing news from his Dr. Appointment this afternoon.
We have known for about a month that the tumor on his ear was growing again. Mrangelmeg was hoping they would just cut it off again like they did last time, but the Dr. says we will have better luck with a micrographic surgical technique this time around, which should afford us a better shot at a higher rate of cure.
So the angelbaby and I went in and wrote out a prayer for Jesus, asking that Mrangelmeg gain peace and healing as we move forward with this new treatment for his skin cancer.
We realize that as cancer's go the kind he has is very mild and he really isn't in much danger, except for having and ear that will really rival Evander Holyfield after that unfortunate fight with Mike Tyson.
Anyway, the Angelbaby said a quick prayer for her dad, and then sat quietly reading a book about the Our Father while I finished my prayers. It had been a long time since we had made a visit to the Blessed Sacrament together. We both thought it was really nice. And we got to leave a prayer in the basket for dad.
