The dreaded word...


Cancer.

My mother will be undergoing surgery Friday AM to remove a mass in her colon.
We received the shocking phone call on Tuesday afternoon. The numbness and the whole "this can't be happening thing" is starting to wear off and the reality of it all is beginning to sink in...
We are praying for the successful removal of the cancer and a benign lymph node biopsy report to follow.


If you have a moment, please say a little prayer for Millie. Thank you!
Kindly,
Brenda

Brenda,

It is very scary to hear the "c" word when it hits someone in your family. Be assured, that while it may not seem so, God is definitely in control and can do amazing things. My mom and my grandmother both were diagnosed with colon cancer 2 mos. apart in 1999. Both had resections. Mom is now 74 and her mom will be 99 next week. The surgeons/gastro. specialists can do great work. Milly is now on my prayer list and so are you. I totally know how you feel and what you're going through. While I have been following your blog for some time as well as ordering from you, I feel as though I have come to know you as a neighbor.

My fingers are crossed that things will go well for your mother. My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2004, so I know how shocking it is to hear the "c" word. I will be praying for you and your mother and to a quick and speedy recovery. Let us know how things go tomorrow. Take care....

My Mom is a 36-year colon cancer survivor. She had colon cancer in 1974. She's now 85. My thoughts are with you, your mother and your family.

Sending good thoughts and prayers to you and your mother. My father had a malignant tumor removed from his colon quite a few years ago. We were all so scared, but he came through it fine, went through chemo and radiation, and is now 89 years old.

I hope all goes well and your mother has a quick recovery.
