Primroses that bright splash of color in the garden section on these grey winter days. I'm feeling a little grey myself today-missing my sister. The joy that company brings is always replaced with an empty hole once they leave. It always takes me a few days to adjust to being alone. I will be in Scottsdale in the next 2 weeks so I will see her and my mother soon. My mother was not as lucky as we had thought, and does have a kidney tumor. She will have to have the entire kidney removed, fortunately her other kidney is very healthy. Removing the kidney will be considered a "cure" and no chemo or radiation will be necessary-Thank goodness! My guts about this tell me that everything will be ok, I just wish my mother did not have to go through something so major. But all in all we are very lucky.
