I received a welcome call from our family tax preparer. He graciously answered all our questions concerning some last minute year-end tax savings we could take advantage of. Terry and I discussed and weighed the pros and cons but ultimately decided to take advantage of the tax deduction to offset a one-time heavy tax load we will have to deal with for 2011.
The second even better phone call came in mid-afternoon from my hubby. He had just received good news from his doctor at his follow-up appointment. The biopsy results confirmed the growth in his hand was completely benign. No cancer! And no need for any drastic treatments to combat any further cancerous growths. He will need to go through some extensive occupational therapy, since the orthopedic surgeon does NOT want him moving his fingers, hand or wrists at all for several weeks.
Thanks to God and everyone who offered prayers on behalf of Terry. And thanks to Rachelle for driving him to his appointment today.
