A wonderful surprise
Trish and I were sitting in our room this morning and I saw a man walking by Ashley's door. I was just about to say to Trish, hey look at that guy out there, he looks like Sammy. Just before I spoke the man came into our room and looked right at me. I said Sammy?? and he just smiled and said surprise. I asked what he was doing here and he said he came up to spend the weekend with Ashley and I. He knew I would be alone with her all weekend and thought that I might need some help. WOW!! I was blown away. That is one great friend who will leave his family and fly 700 miles to come sit with me and the Gherkin. Thank you Sammy and thank you to his family for the wonderful surprise. He was able to sit with Ash while I took Trish to the airport and he did a fabulous job. I think Ash really likes him.
Our meeting gave us lots of information. Some good, some not so good. The "weenie cancer" is not as bad as it could be, but also not on the completely "weenie" side. I won't share all the details right now, but will tell you that Ashley will begin chemotherapy on Monday or Tuesday. It is an 18 week course so she still has a long way to go.
Thank you for checking up on her, I am sure when Trish gets the chance to post she will say more.
