Latest Journal Update


Hi everyone! My mom had surgery this past week and I would love for you to pray for her to recover quickly! She had a growth removed from her eye and had a biopsy done and it showed that she had skin cancer there. Surgery was last Thursday to remove all skin that had skin cancer. The surgery lasted a long time as they took some, tested in the lab and then took more, until they removed all of it. They had to remove more than they were planning on and had to go into the tear duct, but the surgery went well. She is doing well. She is the strongest woman I know. She has kept her head high as she has had that eye shut since surgery and it has stitches on the whole eye lid. Friday is her follow up at the doctor to remove the stitches and allow her to open her eye. I am nervous about her having this appointment. Can you please pray for God to provide her with the comfort and strength to handle this difficult appointment? I am so thankful of my mom. I am even more thankful that we have a God who loves us and takes care of us. I am so thankful that I can count on Him to watch over my mom and heal her. My mom is so special to me. Thank you for praying for her. I took the kids to see her tonight for the first time just for a minute, and Ellington was so cute. She just kept saying, "Grandma, why do you have only one eye?" Then she was making a cute little face to imitate her..it made us laugh for sure! "Arrrrrrrh" Is what she said when she got to the car, guess she thought that Grandma was being a pirate! They have been so concerned about grandma not feeling good! 

On another note, we had a good Halloween and hope you did too! We took the kids to our church Trunk or Treat and they enjoyed handing out candy to everyone. This was the first Trunk or Treat that we have done since doing it with Parker and Haley. I remember Parker started handing out his own family out of his treat bag. It was so cute! Emerson and Ellington were so entertained with handing out to every child that they didn't even have time or care about walking around to get their own candy!

I just got word yesterday that I have basel cell skin cancer on the side of my nose close to my tear duck also. which doctor did your mom's surgery? i'm waiting for my doctor's office to call and schedule the apt but it sounds just like what your mom went through...the part that they send if off to the lab then if they take more they will then send that off to lab. I hope your mom does well w/ her follow up visit. any info you can share w/ me would be great. i'm very nervous - I've never been in an operating room before... thanks.... ez.gourmet@yahoo.com

I will be praying for your mom. I had similar surgery on the left side of my face. I'll bet she and I have the same surgeon! It is so carefully done, and it is such a blessing that they can check cell-by-cell to determine when all of the cancer cells are removed! What a cute comment by Ellington! Keep us posted about your mom, okay?
Love, Linda
