Three French Hens

To my son Tommy,

Three more days till Mommy's surgery.  I never knew an event can be so hopefully anticipated and dreaded at the same time.  On one hand we can't wait for what the surgery will fix.  It promises relief from the Crohn's symptoms and a start to weaning off the prednisone which causes so many side effects.  On the other hand, being the holiday season, there is so much that we had hoped to accomplish before the date.  Your mother is worried about gifts and gift wrapping and getting a professional picture with Santa and all the other details your mom does to make Christmas so great.  I am sure those details will work out.  Or perhaps they won't work out but we will get over and through.  The most important thing is your mother and her health.  Dec 12th is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and I have been asking her to pray for your mom and our family.  There are very three anxious and concerned French hens awaiting Thursday.

Sincerely with love from your mom,
