Do you know the name of the beach Addie?
Yup, in Adelaide. It was just a short story on our local news station. All the men had their bowler hats on and their very best black suits. They were sitting on the toilets that they brought with them, with their pants pulled down around their ankles and reading the newspaper. Our newscasters were laughing so hard they had difficulty telling the story. There were about 20 men. No mention of the beach name.

Last night as Son #1 was walking here to my house, he went by my daughter's house. A childhood friend of her son's was standing outside. He said that my grandson told him that my daughter was definitely going into surgery this morning.

I have been through some really tough times in my life. But this waiting and waiting is so hard. I will call around seven this morning to find out if it is true. I want her to have the surgery before I go in for my surgery tomorrow. I need to have my blood pressure down.

6:22. My daughter just called. We had a short and quick conversation. They just came to take her to surgery. She should be done and out by 2 p.m. The surgery will start around 8 a.m. I can feel my BP going up. I need to get myself calmed down. I am shaking.

I have never been one to skirt around words. Cancer is cancer. Died is died. But these past few days, no one has used any of the words they don't want to hear. As a result the doctors realize that the questions not asked show that they don't want to consider the worst scenario. I could use a good strong tranquilizer right now. This is so hard. To hell with trying to be strong for others. Just knowing that all of my DC Family is praying for her gives me a feeling of help. Thank you all for yor caring support. I feel so helpless right now. I want to scream at the doctors to hurry up and give me some answers. I want to be there in the OR so I can hold her hand and tell her it will be all right. I want to hold my little girl.

Thank you Margi. I just hope they can get all of the tumor out of her brain and that it is benign. Just waiting for two p.m. I should have some answers by then.

Thank you PF. I am waiting for a return call from Winthrop. I need a tranquilizer. I can't go to my surgery in this state tomorrow. I just need one. If I can get calmed down, I can get myself under control. I am so worried that they won't be able to get all of the tumor out and it may be cancerous. I was doing so well all weekend holding it all together for everyone else. But when I got that phone call this morning, I just fell apart. It came as quite a surprise to me. I never break down like that. I am always the strong one. But not this time. This is my first born. The one I fought so hard to keep.

I watched my son's BIL die last year of brain cancer.
