I must say, it's been a good day...

Today we went to a concert and then to eat at Tutta Bella, authentic Neopolitan pizza, mmmmm.
It was lovely and we had good friends with us, which made it even better.
Two of our friends are staying the night with their 4 month old little one who is completely precious. So tomorrow is going to be awesome as well!

In other good news...
well, first I guess I ought to catch up with the bad news.
In October an MRI showed that my mom's breast cancer had metastasized to her brain and she had four tumors.
Obviously, that was the bad news part.

The GOOD news is that a recent MRI shows that three tumors are gone altogether and the 4th may disappear by the time the radiation effects are fully realized and if not then it may be a good candidate for gamma ray treatment.
So...Yay!
That is somewhat qualified good news.
Here's to hoping, hm?

Wow. I'm not all about holiday spirit or anything, but the good news about your mom should be made into a Lifetime holiday movie (starring Lynda Carter, television's Wonder Woman).

I would cry when I watched it.
