This was a really heartfelt page, from a deep place inside me - much of my journal work is like that, but on this occasion it felt pretty much life-saving! As you can see below, it began with a very simple painted background - the hint of print was an experiment with text transfer from an old book which didn't really work! Not important in the end.
And if that all sounds very negative, don't panic! Himself continues to do well, although progress is a tiny bit at a time. I made this page on a very bad day that's all. We don't know yet whether the lymph nodes were involved, and whether more chemotherapy lies ahead, but that's all in God's hands, and for now we're just getting him over the massive surgery. What I may lack in bravery I make up for in persistence!
