hello there! i apologize i've been absent for so long.. i wanted to update you about my mom. it a happy post so don't worry :) she ended up having a radical hysterectomy because the cancer was spreading so quickly. after the surgery, we thought it may have spread deeper based on what the doctors said - placing her at a possible stage 2 or 3. last friday we got the test results back and found out that the cancer did not spread beyond her uterus and was for the most part contained! i sat there in the doctor's office totally dazed and in disbelief as he told us she was okay. she is stage 1a-b (i guess they use letters now in the stages of cancer) and that is the best we could have hoped for!
our Lord delights in healing, and is ever so capable of miracles. He is a compassionate and loving God, He kept the cancer from spreading and healed my dear mom! our hearts rejoiced and we are so grateful. we celebrated a lovely mother's day: i gave her a bunch of yellow things ;) and we took her to her favorite restaurant.
i just want to thank this community of friends and bloggers: for all the messages, the emails, the comments, the willingness to step in and do a guest post for my blog (shout out to rose who made my mom a sweet get well card and grace who stopped by with a bunny!) there was such an amazing amount of support which really kept me encouraged throughout the crazy 2 weeks from when we found out, to the surgery, to getting the test results. your positivity kept me positive and gave me hope for my mom. i wish i could give all of you a great big hug. it is amazing how close i feel to this blog community without having even met you. so from the bottom most deepest part of my heart: thank you dear friends.
see you next week :)
