not what we expected to hear

Mrs. Carolyn (Daniel's mom) went for her Cancer check-up on Friday after a year of being Cancer free. We had a concert in Cape Girardeau that night that she and Bro. Elwood were planning on coming to. We were setting up for the concert and getting things ready when Daniel got the call from his parents. They had found cancer again. This time it is in a couple of her lymph nodes and there is a tumor near her gallbladder. Last time it was too bad to operate on so they tried chemo. This time they will try that same chemo again, but they will spread it out over time since they have found the cancer early enough and it isn't as aggressive. She has had a great spirit about it and today she starts her chemo again. It's not the news we expected to hear and we really didn't have time to take it all in at that moment, but we are ready for the challenge. I hate that we are now 8 hours away, but we can pray pray pray and that is what we will do!

So sorry to hear that about Daniel's mom.


On another note, if you were in Cape Girardeau, you were a mere 30 minutes from us!! We shop and eat there all the time.
