52. Wishing your son, you & family all the best

As hard as it is, please be sure to take good care of yourself through this difficult time.

My son was diagnosed with cancer a week after he graduated high school. There were many months of stress through surgery, treatment and testing, and years of worrying about recurrence. He is now 37 years old and I just got back from visiting him and his wife and daughter in Japan where they work for the US State Department.

There is a healthy, happy future ahead for your son, thanks to great medical care and the loving support of family. Be sure to celebrate even the tiniest bit of good news or spark of recovery, because those moments will add up, layer upon layer. One day you will look back on this time as a frightening episode in the past and recognize that, as a family, you all survived and thrived.

All the best to you
