Bad news or good news?

I experienced a third stroke the second week of May. Every time this happens I have to have a MRI of my head. It's really awful because of the noise this machine makes. Still, it has to be done to assess the damage the stroke has caused. This time the MRI showed a brain aneurysm.

My thinking is this: even thou the stroke was "bad news", finding the aneurysm was "good news". The doctor does not know how long I've had it but thank God, I can have surgery to repair it. So on Wednesday, May 31st, I'll have the surgery.

Meanwhile, the pink rose bush I gave my Mom is blooming like crazy. Usually those nasty, little green canker worms eat the leaves, delaying the blooming until early June.  My Mom passed away twenty years ago. I'm so thankful the rose bush is still living and over four feet tall!! This may sound strange but the blooming rose gives me a very good feeling... kind of like she's watching over me. You know? 

I  hope everyone is doing well.  My posting is erratic but that's the way it goes.
