Good news!

Happily, after all the dithering about whether or not I should knit a chemo cap for my kids’ swim teacher’s mom – they had good news and after surgery to remove her kidney, she should be good to go and will not be needing chemotherapy! The cancer was relatively small and had not spread.

I could see the relief and joy on his face as he told me the news, and I am very, very, happy for their family. We are all set to resume swim lessons with him in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the encouragement the other day. Jim was surprised that everyone voted for knitting the hat.

I told him it was just ’cause he’s not a mama. It’s okay though – he does a good job in the Daddy position.

    Yayyy! I think you should knit the hat anyway and give it to one of those foo-foo boutiques that does cancer wigs for ladies who can’t otherwise afford them. 🙂

    It’s true. Mama’s what to nurture and care for people. Daddy’s want to hunt, gather and play with legos.

    It’s all good.
