“Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
I'm weary and tired today. I want to crawl away. Pretend its not happening. I feel like I'm in emotional/spiritual bootcamp and I'm tired. My instructor is trying to get my eye contact, hold my gaze, and keep me going...for my own good. :) Or maybe He just wants to catch me on my way down.
God's word and laughter have been good medicine...and I'm hoping the nap I'm about to take is the cherry on top. :) But thats just me. And that's just today.
I'm sure my mom has a different story...full of hope and joy. :)
In hopes to keep all informed...
The news today is that my moms brain tumor is benign and they will try a
non-invasive radiation treatment to shrink or stunt tumor growth. Its a dedicated, daily-5 week treatment. This will hopefully put off surgery for a year or two. The brain surgeon at UCLA said most definitely the priority has shifted to the breast cancer. He feels the breast cancer must be treated, first, before they attempt anything for the brain tumor.
She is already experiencing some loss of function/feeling in her face from
the brain tumor. sigh... This makes me so sad.
If the loss of function gets worse, they will go in right away and remove the tumor.
Here is what we are praying for, of course if and only if it falls into God's will...
We are praying that she retains function, beats this breast
cancer, and that the radiation would work in shrinking the brain tumor.
Tuesday is her appointment with the breast surgeon.
Hang with us friends...it looks like a long road ahead.
