For those who keep tabs on me and my family via this blog…. Thanks for any prayers you can offer for my mother.  She has been in the hospital all week with complications from her cancer.  It is a terribly uncomfortable and fearful time for her and quite awful for the rest of us too.  Please pray that she will not have too much pain and will find peace in the midst of the transition.  Thanks so much!

PS: Cancer sucks.

For those who keep up with my life via this blog, I just want to say that Mom’s back in the hospital and will be here for several days.  Lots of fluid buildup in her system, so lot’s of pumping said out.  Please keep her in your prayers.  Thanks muchly!
