As many of you know, my Mom is recovering from surgery. She was diagnosed with peritoneal cancer and underwent major surgery on September 21st.
October 20th she will see the Oncologist to set up chemotherapy. They want her to take chemo every three weeks. She is also doing several cancer fighting homeopathic things on her own.
Her main prayer request right now is that the fluid that was building up around her lungs will subside. They had to drain quite a bit of fluid off before surgery, during and afterward. They are monitoring this and said if it became a chronic problem they would put a shunt in so that it could be drained at home. She really doesn’t want this to be done. Pray that the fluid will not be a problem at all. She goes to the lung Dr. this Friday, the 14th, for him to check this.
She is doing well mentally and spiritually. She is amazing. Her faith in God through all of this has really grown. Her life is in His hands and she knows that she can rest in that – even though the road is a long one ahead.
I will keep updates on how she is doing here. Please feel free to ask questions and check on her often. Also look at Encouraging Crumbs for Mom (coming soon). You can leave a prayer, a scripture, something encouraging for her. (She has especially enjoyed people sharing scripture that they are praying for her!!) She really really appreciates these things to uplift her spirit. I will see that she either reads them here, or will print them off for her.
Thanks everyone for your prayers. They mean so much!!!
