My Mom Has Cancer

My mom has cancer.

I typed it, and it still doesn't seem real.

Mostly, I don't think that it seems real because cancer and my mom just don't belong in the same sentence. And, in my heart, I know that sentence will be changing. At some point, hopefully sooner than later, that sentence will be changing to "My mom had cancer, and beat it."

She has surgery to remove the melanoma and possibly some lymph nodes on November 6th. Due to the nature of the melanoma, it is quite possible that the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. I think I understand her right in that they are removing the lymph nodes regardless. The melanoma was .95 cm, and melanoma is known to spread at 1 cm. Her melanoma was only .5 cm away. I pray it has been caught in time.

I am sharing this with you because I am a true believer that prayer is powerful. The more people that know about my mom's situation, the more people that can pray for her. So, if you're a prayful person, please say a prayer for my mom. Please pray that the cancer hasn't spread, and that she will be cancer free after this surgery.

On a side note, I wanted to also mention that my blog updates will be fluctuating from here on out until after the delivery of my baby girl in January. I just can't promise daily updates right now, but I do promise updates from time to time.

Thanks for sticking with me.
