I don't need cash for Christmas....update 11/13

I can see everyone is already complaining about the upcoming 'I can't afford Christmas for my kids' posts. Our family doesn't need cash, or presents, or anything like that. But if you pray, or meditate, or send out good vibes, whatever it is you do, you can do that for us. I would just like to have SO home for the holidays, alive and well. He's going to have brain surgery tomorrow to remove a tumor and it will possibly leave him paralyzed on one side. He will need to be in a physical rehab center for weeks. And our baby is due in two weeks.



**Thank you so much for all the prayers!!!! According to his mom (she's spending the night at the hospital tonight) He is recovering from surgery very well and very quickly and already talking and moving his right side. Crazy good news!!!  Now all I can think is, " That dr can take his '6-8 month time frame' and SHOVE IT!"  So happy right now, and really appreciating the power of prayer and the fact that my SO is always so positive and strong and full of faith, and STUBBORN! lol*****


 11/13/12-update : they got all of the tumor that they could see. he is recovering nicely in inpatient rehab at our local hospital so he was able to be there for the birth of our son on Monday! And he will be coming home on Sunday.

I get it. The librarian asked my daughter what she was asking Santa for. She said she wanted a liver for her nana. I'm sorry you're going through this.

I know what you mean. The best gift of all is family and having them healthy and well. Many people forget that. I'm sorry you have to endure such stress with your husbands surgery and I pray that it all goes well. **hugs**

Last year I was having trouble because I was ill and on medical leave so Christmas was not really going to happen. I explained it to my dd who was 6 at the time and she looked at me and said, " don't worry mommy, you don't have to buy me anything, all that matters is we have eachother and we are happy" boy did she make me cry.
