So far so good...

Ever since my dad called to tell me about my mom's tumor a couple weeks ago I have been so distracted. I kept having all of these thought of my mom passing away... I am not ready to lose my mom. I still have so much to learn from her.

So, needless to say I have been so anxious all this week for my mom's surgery. Thankfully, everything went well, I always imagine worst possible outcome. But she is great and is such a trooper! 'Cause having knee replacement surgery wasn't enough for the year... Sheesh!

They removed a football sized, 2-3 lbs tumor from her abdomen and the pathologist says that it is NOT cancerous. What a relief.

Thank goodness for answered prayers.

Oh my goodness! I had no idea you were worrying about your mom and that she was going through this. I guess we haven't been on top of things since we've been taking turns being sick. I am glad to hear everything is OK.

My heart is totally with you - how scary. My mom had surgery yesterday. It is an awful thought to think of her not here but it does cross your mind in times like these. I hope all goes well. I love your blog - I am inspired by so many of your projects. I really want to make your crayon tote but I am just in a shlump of voided craftiness. I need to get sewing and I am sure I would feel better!

I don't know, Deb -- Pat has a pretty awesome mother-in-law, too. ;-)

OH MY GOSH! I didn't even know your family was dealing with this. I'm so glad to hear everything is ok. Cancer is sooo scary. It's so sad to watch the families that come into the pharmacy go through all of it. Makes me emotional. I'm glad Mama Newey is healthy and well!
