It's funny (odd) what our minds rehearse. I always thought I'd be the one to get cancer, not Bob. (If I live long enough, odds are, I will, anyway.)

But that wasn't the point of my comment. ;-)

I love that they've put thought into the artwork at the new cancer center. That's one thing that sucked out my soul as we sat through hours of chemo. The artwork on the walls looked like something from a street vendor. It was nondescript, pastel, lifeless, lacking inspiration.

We brought our own "life" to chemo through our reading material, DVDs, Twitter, and podcasts that kept us company. It sure would have been nice, though, to have had something cool on the walls.

Seems like a petty thing to ask for, given the awesome blessing we've been handed, but I know how much it will mean to the countless people who will pass through those doors.


Hoping you never have to give your "announcement." Hearing one is awful. Especially for kids, even when you're not a kid anymore.


Thanks for the Cancer Center mention Karen. It really is an amazing place. In addition to the artwork, the lighting, flooring, and other thoughtful patient considerations throughout really adds to the overall warmth of the facility and patient experience. You're right- you hope you NEVER have to use it, but it's nice to know it's right in your community should a loved one or friend need it.
