Update on my Mom

  1. Thanks to all of you who have written with your support. For those who didn't see my earlier post, my Mom had surgery today for a tumor on her C5 vertebrae. They used a piece of her hip to rebuild the vertebrae and keep it from collapsing. Unfortunately, the tumor is mets from breast cancer. They didn't even know she had breast cancer until today.

    A sad thing is that I have asked her about getting mammograms before and she said she "never had and never would" that she old enough that it wouldn't matter if she did, or something to that effect. She is 72.

    I just started my nursing orientation this week and luckily they let me take tomorrow off so I can fly to Indiana and see her.

    Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
