Oh, and before I forget:

If you go to McDonalds today and order a medium drink you get a free chicken sandwich. They taste like the ones from Chick Fil A. The boys and I drove by the one on Del Amo and Woodruff and they had a big chicken dancing out front. I had a small gift card to use up, so it worked out perfect for us. The boys really liked the sandwich.


My mom

My mom called this morning to let me know that she is headed back into the hospital. She's having a few problems and the doctors want to observe her and get her a CT scan. Her doctor said it should just be a 24 hour observation. I just spoke with her and she's settled in and very tired. I'm hoping we'll be able to see her tonight. Please continue to pray.

Another update on my mom...

Wow, my mom is doing much better!

We were not able to bring her home today, but she is coming home tomorrow!!!! There was so much healing just from yesterday to today. We've been bringing the boys with us to visit her and today was the first day she really interacted with them. It was a great visit with lots of laughter.

The pain is still there, but not as strong. She had all of her tubes removed today and only needed to use the oxygen. Now we just need to get her some sun so we can get rid of the pale hospital color.

I'm not sure when her treatments will begin. Her surgeon is pulling for radiation. From what I have researched, it seem like an easier route to go. So that's what I'm praying for!

An update on my mom.

Thank you for your prayers. I felt so much peace throughout the day and it was beautiful.

Yesterday morning they were not sure if she would be able to have her surgery. My mom has a blood clotting disorder and her blood was testing very thin. Thankfully her doctor gave the go ahead for the surgery.

My mom's surgery was good. The surgeon said it was a very aggressive surgery and had to move "alot" around. He was able to successfully remove the tumor. He removed part of her colon, but not enough to need a colostomy bag (that put a small smile on my mom's face).

Her recovery was long. Her blood pressure was low and they were concerned. Finally, around 8:00 last night they were able to take her out of recovery and into her own room. She is in alot of pain, but so happy that the surgery is over. She will probably be in the hospital for another five days or so. Her doctors are hoping we can bring her home on Mother's Day.

Her surgeon is thinking she will start radiation treatment in about five weeks. She has never had radiation and she's a little nervous. Her surgeon feels that this is the best way for her to conquer this round of cancer.

She loved receiving all your cards and letters. We were reading them together on Sunday and they were beautiful. Thank you!

Please continue to keep my mom in your prayers. Her recovery will be tough and I would love for her to feel God's love and comfort.

Thank you again for all your prayers, love, and support! I know I've said it before, but I am so thankful to have you in my life.
