Blech!

So I guess it's now public knowledge...we found out on Thursday that my Mom has uterine cancer...and we are all in total shock.  I can't even say it out loud without totally breaking down.  It's so hard to even comprehend what she is going through in her brain, I can't even understand my own feelings about it...we told my kids that very night and they all just bawled with me..Chris was the strong one that held us all together. 

We decided as a family to have a fast for her and my sister (another story) and my SIL (still another story) today and all of my older kids decided to fast with us.  It was so neat to watch them during the fast and their strength is so amazing to me...Taylor put up a note in the pantry reminding us all to not eat because we were fasting. What awesome kiddos...and we also ordered up some LiveStrong wristbands for the whole fam to where to support my Mom. 

As of right now, we don't know much...just that she has cancer...when they do surgery they will know more about what stage it is and if she has to undergo chemo and radiation...but for now, if you find yourself with some extra blessings...send your prayers our way!  It will be greatly appreciated!

On to my sister...she is awaiting surgery to find out if her Thyroid nodules are cancerous...and my SIL is going through a rough patch in her life too...

In a matter of 2 weeks, my family and life have been completely turned upsidedown...Ugh!

Amy, I'll be praying for your family. Its so hard to get ne like that, and you never really know what to think, when our family went throughthing like that it was important to be positive and take in every minute. You're lucky the holidays are close so your family can be together and spend much needed time together. Please let me know what I can do to help. Thinking of you!
