Strength beyond words

My Mom is such a strong woman! How blessed I'm am to be her daughter! She had her double mastectomy and was doing just fine. Then she got a call saying they hadn't taken a clear margin around the tumor. So back she went for more surgery... taking more skin, putting in the chemo port and getting started on the reconstruction process.

That second surgery really knocked her for a loop! She is starting to bounce back now though. On Thursday I took her to check out wigs. It was so much fun seeing her in lots of different styles and colors. We tried blonde, brown, redish and even pink... for more on that story, you can check out her blog here.

She did get some wonderful news this week... she is now cancer free according to the pet scan!!

It's been so cool to watch her walk this path. I'm not sure how she has done it. God truly has blessed her with such courage and strength! What a wonderful testimony she is to those around her!

I appreciate all your prayers and ask you to continue to pray as she is starting chemo in the next couple weeks!!

What a woman of faith and strength that mom of yours is. Sounds like she'll be standing in churches years from now giving testimony to the faithfulness of God.

This is just so uplifting. What a beautiful God fearing mother you have. I will pray that the Lord continues to bless her and fill her with peace and faith during the rest of this trial.

It is neat to see how God is already using her story to help and inform others as well. I love you Mom!!
