Up and up

One of our dear friends has just discovered he has a malignant brain tumour. He is very courageous.


The tumour has grown from 5cm yesterday, when they did a CAT scan, to 13cm today. Due to the speed of growth, they cannot wait for the brain swelling to go down now as they originally thought they would be able to and he is to be operated on first thing tomorrow morning.


In my pic there is a tiny wee bird flying high up almost at the top of this enormous swirling cloud that could tumble it down in one mighty gust of wind, yet it carries on up and up in spite of the appearance of seemingly insurmountable odds. As long as there is breath, there is hope....This is where I see our friend at the moment.


He is in our hearts and our prayers.
