Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Best wishes to all for a season of peace and love, no matter what you celebrate....or whether you celebrate at all.

Slightly anxious time here for two aging parents. Our younger son Doug The Canaussian who lives in Toronto, Canada, had a hand operation a couple of days ago. Some time ago he was diagnosed with a vascular tumour in his left hand which although it isn't cancerous behaves like cancer, so is treated as such. Chemotherapy didn't work so he went under the knife to remove several tumours, and also had reconstructive surgery including bone grafts. He no longer has a left index finger, it's gone. Apparently the surgery went well and doctors are pleased.

Seems he is one of only 50 cases known world-wide. We always knew our boys were special - but that's not how we wanted them to be unique!
