Tough Day

With things going so well with Jack, I just knew I was experiencing the calm before the storm.

My mom had surgery today to remove the tumor. The tumor is a glioblastoma, probably the most lethal type of brain tumor to have. The prognosis is poor and the news has been devastating to all of us -- especially my father.

I've spent the last eight years doing everything in my power to keep my son alive. His very life depends on me and I have been able to deliver. Now I find myself in the position of having a parent who is teetering on the fine line between life and death and there is absolutely nothing I can do to keep her here. I know we've all got a 1 in 1 chance of dying, but what my mom's got is a really sucky way to go.

Onward we march ............

Big prayers for your entire family. It is awful to have a parent diagnosed with a terminal cancer. We will continue to pray for healing and comfort.
