Wonderful News!!

Three wonderful things happened this weekend, one day after another:
First off, on Saturday, my best friend graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara with her Bachelor's Degree in psychology. She earned her degree in only three years...working her ass off this last year to make sure she got it. See, her boyfriend of several years was graduating this year and they wanted to graduate together. The cool thing was that they got to choose their order, so they received their diplomas next to each other.
Congratulations to you, sweetie. I love you and am so proud of you both.

Next came Sunday....Father's Day!
There is a special bond between my dad and I...we are so alike in temperament and life philosophy. He is wonderful and has done so much to shape who I am today. Without him being the incredible dad that he is, my life would be so different.
I love you so much, Dad!

But...as proud of them as I am, the news that we received this morning has my feet flying several inches from the floor...

Final results from Mom's tests are back in and
No Cancer!!!!!

Ok, not quite true...there is a small benign tumor on her right ovary, but it isn't harmful. Still, she is probably going to have a hysterectomy done just as a precaution.
But she is going to be ok!!!

I got my BA in art from The College of Creative Studies division of UCSB. I started my first year in a Winter quarter but wanted to finish the degree at the usual time of year so I took slightly heavier courseloads and graduated in 3 1/2 half years. I would have had a 4.0 GPA too if I hadn't ditched out on jazz band rehearsal on that one wrong night. Oh well A good GPA was always the furthest thing from my college priorities anyway but it would have been cool to have a 4.0 just to say I did.

Your friend chose their school well as not only is that a good school for a lot things but it's just a downright fun and beautiful place. As an artist it was always inspiring in that way.

I figured you had to have an exceptional dad. As well as an exceptional mom. And that's exceptional news to hear thet she's non cancerous! I'm glad that scare is over.

One trait that can sometimes sort of bug me about my dad is that when it comes to bad news (particularly medically oriented) he has a tendency to sheild it from me. I'm not sure if he had something bad going on healthwise that he'd even tell me. I know he did that a lot when it came to my moms health status. But I think he at least has some sense for when it becomes absolutely necessary to tell people about something like that.

I think his intent with that behavior is to prevent people from worrying and I can sort of see that as worrying of the stressful kind is definitely is one of the most unhealthy activities you can possibly engage in. But I don't like that the type of sheilding he's sometimes done can also prevnt me from showing a healthy concern and possoibly from actually doing something to help if I can.

But it really is great news that your mom is OK.

She loved it down there and it was very much the perfect choice for her. I almost ended up going down there with her, but ended up on a different path.

Words can't express how happy I am for you right now.

and for your sister as well. Of course the rest of your family...

All you need now is that last little piece to fall into place and all will be perfect.

curious082385 replies on 6/20/2006 5:38 am:
Yes, just waiting on those last few puzzle pieces. Things aren't all better yet, but this just lifted off a huge weight and makes everything else easier to deal with. The whole family breathed a big sigh of relief yesterday morning.

Yes she is very much the center of our family. The thought of her being sick or of losing her was unbearable.
Thank you for stopping by.
