Oh Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. I know how difficult it is to watch a parent struggle with a devastating illness at a much-too-young age (as my father is now in the late stages of Alzheimer's). Please know that I'm thinking of you.

Joanne said...

Dear Nancy,

This is my very first time on your blog, and I believe that I was directed here to pray for your mom, as well as for strength for you and your family. My Dad was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor 7 years ago, so I know the fear and anxiety that you must be now feeling. They can do so much more now for brain tumors than they could do even 7 years ago, and I will be praying for extra wisdom for your mom's doctors, and for the wisdom for all of you to know what course is best for your dear Mom. You, your mom, and your family will be in my prayers, and I'll be checking into your site for news on her. I have the comfort of knowing that we did everything we could for my dad, we were with him 24-7, and he felt our love very clearly at all times. We are a family of faith, and that faith has sustained us through all that we had to go through. I'll be praying for a great outcome for your Mom, God can work miracles and does every day. Just put your trust in Him, He will never let you down.

Hugs,

Joanne

mamia said...

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear this. I can totally relate to this, I lost my mother when she was only 43 years old to brain tumors. That was 26 years ago and the technology just 5 years later was so good that my uncle survived his with only minimal surgery. My prayers are with you and her, prayers for the doctors, and prayers for everyone in her family.

Lorri said...

Nancy, my heart aches for you, that is hard news to digest. HOWEVER, God still performs miracles and that is what I am praying for. Thank you for calling, it was so good to hear your voice today. I will be on my knees over this!

Carrie Rhoades said...
