Update on Mom
I have avoided this post because somehow putting it here in writing makes it even more real, but I need to get it out there so here goes: My Mom indeed has cancer..in "various locations," and therefore inoperable. We are not sure the type or the definite origin but the surgeon who did the biopsy suspects that it started in the lung. At this point we are scrambling to make an appointment with an oncologist so that we can determine the course of treatment so once again we are in wait & see mode.
Mom seems to be doing ok at the moment, I think she is processing the news in her own quiet way. My dad and I are in pro-active mode because it helps to DO something instead of succumbing to feelings of powerless that threaten to overtake us. I'm researching, he's making phone calls, we are both trying to hold it together and stay strong, remain positive.
I ask again for your thoughts/prayers/healing energy as well as any and all information you may have on how to beat this horrible disease. We are willing to consider all options, both western medicine and alternative/holistic. Whatever it takes.
My dear friend Aisling asked if I would post a picture of my Mom so that she can visualize her in prayer so I'm including one above. As I said before, her name is Phyllis..I'm sure the God/dess recognizes her as one of earth's most precious angels...we just pray and plead that she stay with us a bit longer because we truly need her here on earth...ok God? Please?
