Rough Week

This last week has been a tough one. On Wednesday my mom found out she had breast cancer. The doctors said it was a rare very aggressive and invasive type. That hit us all very hard. On Thursday she met with the oncologist and surgeon and they told her that they did not think it had spread and they wanted to due another surgery right away to find out. That brings us up to today. She had the second surgery today and the lymph nodes and breast tissue came back negative for cancerous cells. Praise the Lord! That means the cancer had not spread. So, there will not be a need for chemo or radical surgery. They do want her to due a 6 week treatment of radiation, but compared to what she was looking at this is all good news.

As for the adoption news. We are still waiting for our fingerprinting appointment.

This last weekend we went to visit some new friends in Fort Wayne. The Cramer's are paperchasing for their second daughter from China. They have a three year old that they adopted a year and a half ago. She is a doll. The next day I heard Mike telling several people about the precious little girl he met. I think he fell in love with Kendall. We got to see pictures and a video from their trip to China. It sure makes it seem more real. How cool.
