If you are praying people*

If ever there was a time that our family needed prayers it is now.  Yesterday afternoon Derek’s mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  We are rather shocked to say the least.

She is having surgery today to have a piece removed and after that we’ll know more.

I don’t have many words to say about all of this at the moment.  That could be a lack of sleep.

If you are praying people we could use some of those right about now.


*Mom is out of surgery and everything went well.  The doctor took about a superficial 2″ piece of the tumor out, but left in the deeper portions in.  The tumor is likely malignant, but we won’t have the definitive answer until pathology comes back.  She won’t start treatment until that comes back and until she has a chance to heal for a week or two.

We are still waiting to go in to see her.  I’m tired of waiting.

    Sending prayers. You are all in my thoughts today. Please take care of yourselves too. It’s easy to forget to get enough food/drink/sleep when a family crisis strikes!
