Hospitals....

Well all weekend I have been staying at San Jacinto Methodist hospital in Baytown with my mom who was once again diagnosed with cancer. I think everyone who knows me knows that I have a phobia about hospitals especially when its due to horrible circumstances. But I have put that fear aside to be with my mom. I have stayed with her overnight ever since I arrived here. And needless to say no sleep because every time you dose off another nurse comes in to do something. My mom has been through so much in her life that it kills me to see her having to go through this all over again so soon. The doctors say that it is not good, they did a scan on her liver and that turned out to be cancer as well. They have started the process to get her into MD Anderson hospital in Houston. She will again start her chemo treatments and radiation Monday. Once they get her into MD Anderson they will do a PET scan to determine if it is in the bones if in fact it is in the bones they will do a bone marrow transplant which they have already put her on the list to receive one. My mom is the strongest person I know and she will fight as hard as she can, but ultimately it's in Gods hands and at this point in her journey all we can do is pray, pray and pray so more. Thanks to all of you who have offered your support and prayers. We love y'all and ask to please keep praying for her!

We are praying, too....I think about it often during the day and it makes me sad/grateful/hopeful/ all in one. I'm up for a trip to Houston whenever you need!

Nathan lifted you and your Mom up in prayer in the morning service. She has a lot of people thinking of her.
