Brain Surgery Scheduled!! Please Pray!!!

Yeah...so we just got back a little bit ago from taking the kids up to the hospital to see Mom. Thankfully, she is basically the Mom we all know and love, thanks to getting some much needed necessary medication. She looked great and felt great! A whole 360 degree change from the state she was in Friday evening.

Anyway, we were all there when the neurosurgeon came in to talk to Mom. She will be having surgery on Wednesday morning at 7:30a.m. It is expected to take 4-6 hours. They will be trying to remove the largest tumor on her brain at this time, then she will be in ICU for maybe a week. Then comes about two months of recovery, and after that they will go in for a second surgery on the next tumor. The largest one is in the front of her head and is the one causing most of her problems right now so it is the one they want to address first.

I am so scared, y'all. I may come across as being strong, and maybe I am...but inside I am just a scared little girl who's falling to pieces! There was a guy the same age as I am (34) who just passed away after having brain surgery for cancer. He went into a coma and never came out of it. I am absolutely terrified of this happening to Mom!

Please, PLEASE...pray to whatever God, Goddess, or whoever you believe in, and if you can get anyone you know to pray for a perfect stranger, please do!! It means so much to us and our family...THANK YOU!

Okay...I think I'm gonna break down and cry....I don't feel very strong right now.

Hate to say that I haven't been around often enough to realize any of this was going on. Prayers and good thoughts are on their way to your entire family...

I read your comment on Os's post yesterday and thought I'd stop by. Hope you don't mind.

I will definitly keep you and your family in my prayers. Right now, my mom is battling with Liver Cancer and it's sadly gotten the best of her. Doctors have given her a mere few weeks left with us =( So I know all to well how devestating cancer can be.

This isn't her first bought with it though, she's beaten it 3 times before, as has my grandma so it can be done. Just keep her spirits up, keep praying and just know that God and everyones thoughts are with you.

You don't know me, but if you need to talk, I'm here anytime. =)

I know you're scared, but thank goodness she is finally getting the help she needs! My daughter goes to her youth group tomorrow night and I asked her to please give a prayer request for your mother-in-law. You and your family are in my prayers also. Good luck tomorrow.
