First of all, I have been overwhelmed by all the love and support I have received from all of you across blogland.
It was my mom who encouraged me to start blogging this past year.
She has celebrated my blog with me every step of the way…my first follower, winning giveaways, and reading lots of comments. We have had a ball.
But I would have never imagined that this blog would end up bringing me such comfort and encouragement during this difficult time. I look forward to checking my blog throughout the day and reading all of your sweet words and prayers.
Today my mom had her biopsy on her liver. All went well. We were a little concerned about her heart handling this procedure, but she did wonderfully.
For anyone who doesn’t know the background, my mom was diagnosed with a heart condition on April 24th of this year. This past summer she has been on several medications and was waiting to have a surgery on her heart this September. Over the summer we have watched her health decline. She had lost almost 25 pounds, couldn’t eat without becoming nauseous and was becoming VERY weak.
My sister finally got her to switch doctors because we knew something wasn’t right. Within 24 hours she was diagnosed with stomach cancer that has spread to her liver.
This past week has been the most difficult of my life. But it has also been the sweetest. I have spent so much time with my mom. Every second has been precious.
My sister and I are taking turns staying with Mom and Dad. Tonight is my turn. I can’t wait. I am treasuring these moments.
Here is a picture of my parents. I thought I would give you some beautiful faces to go with the names, Doug and Wanda.
Next Tuesday afternoon, we will be getting the results from the biopsy. We will find out what type of cancer it is , what stage she is in, and what the treatment options are. I am not looking forward to it.
Pray for my sweet husband. He has been playing Mr. Mom a lot lately. And it is not easy taking care of those four boys!
I have to add a picture of my boys. I have this picture in my sidebar, but I wanted to show it to you bigger. This picture was taken one Sunday morning at McDonald’s. I was trying to get a serious picture and it wasn’t easy.
Then I told them to do a silly pose…
Oh, my goodness…they make me laugh!
I am hoping to post again soon about some shelves my husband made me a couple of weeks ago.
I have actually had more time to blog than I expected. I spent 5 1/2 hours at the doctor today. My sister and I like to get our laptops out in the waiting room. It helps us to get our minds off things for a while.
Thanks again for all the love I have felt from you these past few days. God bless you for blessing me!
