An update

Thanks to all of you for the prayers! My mother-in-law's surgery went very well. The doctor removed her kidney and the adjacent adrenal gland. He said that the cancer had definitely spread to the surrounding blood vessels so she is official stage 3 and there will be lots of future follow-up. If anything else starts to grow, they will attack it quickly and aggressively. He also said that chemo is not an option right now because they don't know where in the body the cancer will develop next. So it's basically a wait and see what happens, and we will continue to be hopeful.

And now I have to run so I can take cupcakes to daycare for my girl's 3rd birthday. Sigh... Three already.

Prayer needed

My mother-in-law, Judy, has had a few health issues here lately, and found out last week that she has a tumor the size of an orange on one of her kidneys. The doctor told her it was invading the surrounding blood vessels and they plan to remove the entire kidney. He is 98-99% sure it is malignant.

The surgery will be on April 17th, and she could use any prayers or good thoughts that anyone can spare. I’ll keep everyone posted on how it goes.

It takes so little to make me happy

First time EVER. Yay, Kels!

I'm so happy I'm willing to overlook the fact that her teacher spelled the word "potty" wrong.
