The C word

This week before the big move to Utah my mom found out through a routine mammogram and subsequent biopsy that she has breast cancer. It is a very surreal thing to find out about someone you love.

I mean you could never tell from the outside, and she wasn't really having any signs.

Just another reason why you should always remember to do your self-breast exams and make routine visits to your doctor.

She meets with her Oncologist today to find out a treatment plan. She has a lot of really big decisions to make, but she has some really great friends and if I do say so family to help her through it all.

Tomorrow I fly out to Utah with Fiona, I haven't seen Chuck since Saturday and I miss him like crazy.... but at the same time I feel nuts going across the country right now.

However, thank goodness for prayer and modern technology. I can communicate with God and ask for his help in a situation I feel helpless in. Plus I can communicate with my mom everyday in a variety of ways.

I am thinking of starting a blog on behalf of my mom so we can keep people up to date on the progress and everything that is going on without her having to tell 100 people 100 different times.... it gets to be stressful.

For now, prayers are greatly appreciated.
