Recovery is Underway

My boss's husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor just over a week ago. On Friday, he underwent 8 hours of surgery to remove the tumor from his brain stem. Tensions were high and the anxiety was palpable, and I am thrilled to say that he made it through marvelously. He is currently in recovery in the ICU. He is in a great deal of pain, but he is not totally paralyzed (one arm has still not woken up) and he can talk (they thought he would have to re-learn how to talk). So, life is good!

Caroline is camped out at the hospital keeping him company. This has been an incredible journey for their family and an amazing experience for me as the studio manager of her business. Never again will I be able to say that nothing will happen on someone's wedding day. There is always a chance that life will get in the way of business, and you just have be ready to be flexible. I'm grateful to be on this journey with them.... learning as we go.
