My Mama- Update

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you. ”

                                                                                                   2 Corinthians 4: 7-12

As always, life has a way of throwing us a curve ball.

I guess it would be unnerving, except we know the Lord has a plan. He knew our life before we took our first breath. There are no surprises and there is no unknown with Him.

So, I posted a bit back we had disappointing news concerning my mom’s recent surgery.

This will prove to be a challenging time.

Her doctor informed me following her surgery he had also found a softball size mass in her abdomen. While she was still under anesthesia, he sent the mass for an initial lab test and it came back as positive for cancer.

Since then, we have found out it is also in her lymph nodes and lungs.

Her “official” diagnosis is Stage 4, Grade 1 Endometrial Adenocarcinoma.

I’m sharing all of this because she is scheduled to have a Hickman catheter placed this week, followed by her first chemo therapy treatment.

We’re currently researching all we can on this form of cancer and it’s treatment.

Mama, as always, stays continually strong.

I’ve had my moments…I’ll admit, not so strong.

I’ve tried to journal all of the things we’ve experienced the last few weeks.  Cancer is a whole new world for me.

Please pray for her. Please pray for our strength and that the Lord would show us just how to minister to her during this time.

I just wanted to share.

With my love,

Tracy
