Hello & Goodbye...

Good times come and go, 
but the memories will last forever...

Today my heart goes out to my stepdaughter, Victoria.

Got good news and not so good news yesterday.  Good news being that I had my follow up
with my endocrine surgeon and was told that  I am doing extremely well and that I am healing
very fast and that all the pathology reports came back negative for additional cancer.  Good news.

Now I just have to get better 100% and I'll be back to my usual self.  I also have to keep 
monitoring my hormone levels with blood tests, but this is all easy street from here on.

The not so good news is that Victoria, my stepdaughter's grandmother just died yesterday.
Knowing how she felt about her is enough to make me very sad for all the hurting she 
is going through right now.  Brings back memories of my grandmother dying.  Not fun at all.

Life is unpredictable.  Just makes me realize to never take anyone or anything for
granted because what you have today can suddenly vanish in thin air within seconds.

When someone you love dies, something in you goes with them.  Today 
Victoria and her family are hurting.  Death of a loved one is not something I wish 
anyone to have to go through, but it is part of life and unfortunately, at some
 given time we will all have to face it and deal with it. My heart goes out 
to them today.  Remember you will always  have the memories.

She and her grandma had a special bond.  Not everyone has.
I remind her that to the last minute her grandma was loving her, and
will forever be watching over her and making sure she is doing good.
Today Victoria has a guardian angel in heaven, whom she calls grandma.

Someone once told me that the most painful goodbyes are 
the ones that are never said and never explained.

Have a good day all
 and always remember that life is full of surprises.

Life goes on.
Whether you choose to move on or take a chance in the unknown.
Or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could have been..
