mom update

Good news:  Mom's tumor is shrinking and chemo is doing its job. Hallelujah.

Bad news: Mom's cat scan last week still revealed cancer in her lymph nodes, so no surgery yet. Her doctor said two more rounds of chemo and then they'll do another scan. Counts (especially her platelets) were too low to do chemo this week, but we're all hoping for the green light next week.

Mom's spirits remain high. God is teaching us patience and to continue depending on Him. I keep reminding myself this is a marathon, not a sprint...but, UGH. I wish my heart would listen more to my brain.

Until next time...
