I haven't posted for several days - Tara has been keeping up with the blog; which is great! As we were visiting with some long time friends last night; Scott said something that really sums up how we feel about this whole deal. He said, "we have been so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love that it doesn't leave room for fear." That is it. That is how we feel. Our friends and family are the BEST! And all of you who are praying for Tara that we don't even know are great, also! Since this blog, I have read all the posts - you who have lost a child due to brain cancer - I don't know how you get through something like that - and those of you who are brain tumor survivors - it's nice to hear your stories also.
Out next hard moment will be getting on the plane Wednesday. Tara, Josh & myself will leave Wednesday and return Wednesday. Scott is gone Thursday to Tuesday. We believe we are ready for this - ready to get Tara off her pain medicine - her pain med makes her so tired and loopy - none of us like that.
Scott has returned to his normal life of being a bishop - I think it actually felt good to him to roll up his sleeves and immerse himself in church work again yesterday. There's really nothing more we can do until we leave - so we're just doing our normal life - except it really isn't "normal" because we have such an outpouring of love from everyone. It's wonderful and we cannot thank you all enough. If Tara ever gets a little blue or down (which isn't often) there's always a card or a note or something or someone at the door that picks her up at the right moment.
We'll send news on Friday via Rachel on the blog about how surgery went. I don't know yet how long surgery is expected to last.
We love you all!
