Update on Mom

Thank you dear friends for your prayers and support.

I talked with my sister, the neurologist and the neurosurgeon this evening. Mom definitely has a very large brain tumor...but the steriods that they have placed her on have brought back some of her short term memory. (Yesterday you could tell her that she had a brain tumor and she would respond, "Oh...that isn't good" and then go back to what she was doing and not remember what she had just been told. Something to be said for not having any anxiety about it.)

We have decided that we will go ahead with a biopsy on Friday...which will tell us what kind of cancer it is. Armed with that information, we can make the next decisions.

I am headed to Dallas on Friday and will be able to be there with my sister and Mom during these times.

I am grateful that I have such a good prayer support group and sweet friends...since this was a new addition to some of the rather stressful things that have been happening lately -- I guess I could have been overwhelmed with it all. But by the grace of God -- I feel great peace and am just trusting the Lord to carry me through what each day holds. Trying not to think too far down the path -- becauase I don't know what is there anyway and wouldn't want to get ahead of God and HIS plans on all of these things that are going on in my life.

I love you all...and will try to keep you updated once I get there.

  6. Well obviously if you need anything - I'm way down on the list. LOL! I have been praying for you and your Mom. I got to thinking about ya'll at church last night and prayed. I really don't know what to say or do to help you but just keep telling you I love you and pray, pray, pray. Keep us posted.
