My mother made the foolish mistake of giving me access to her account, so it is not on her behalf, but on my family’s, that I hijack it now.
I must first say that the surgery this morning to put the port in went beautifully, and we are now home and resting. We have new news in that her PET, brain, and abdominal/pelvic scans have been scheduled for Thursday at 2pm.
Those of you who know me well know that the relationship that I have with my momma is something special. My sisters and I are so blessed to have been raised by such a fiercely intelligent, generous, loving woman, and I am grateful to be able to count that same woman as my very best friend. The days from here on are going to be full of challenges that are unexpected, but not unwelcome. The amount of difficulties that she has faced in her lifetime have bordered on comical at best, and Biblical at worst. We are readying ourselves for the coming months, and we are so thankful for your thoughts, prayers, positive energy, good vibes, and whatever else you have inside of you to give.
My main reason for borrowing her quill, though, is to say thank you. We have been overwhelmed these last few days by love and prayers and such good food! It is humbling, to say the least. Reading over the comments on her last post I was struck by what Emily Ralls said – What a blessing to see the Body of Christ spring into action when our earthly bodies fail! We have been blessed beyond words by your generosity. I have never doubted how valued my mom is by all of you, but it is undoubtedly powerful to see and hear that truth from so many.
With many thanks,
Emily (along with James, Sarah James, Jacob, Abigail, Amber, and Megan)
