I had planned to post some knitting pictures today. But now all I can think to post is a request for prayer. If you are the praying type, please pray for my Mom.
Last year my Mom's cancer came back and she went through chemo all winter. She was feeling so much better and had energy and was looking like she had beaten it again. She battled breast cancer in 1995 and beat that, so we knew she could beat this one too. My Mom is the strongest person I know.
Now she has something else going on, but we don't know yet what it is. Something is affecting her memory and cognitive abilities and she is worried. I am worried, my siblings and their spouses are worried. She went for blood work earlier in the week but didn't hear anything back from those tests because the small-town doctor is away. My aunt, who lives in the town where my Mom lives, decided to call around today to try to get some answers and was told to get my Mom to a hospital in a larger center right away. On a Saturday. That is both a relief and a worry. They wouldn't say that if it was nothing.
So today, instead of mindless drivel or knitting pictures, I'm asking you to pray because that is all I can do aside from worry. And worry doesn't help. I don't know what tests they are doing, I don't know how my Mom is feeling or if things got worse since I spoke with her on Thursday. I don't know anything. But I can pray, and I can ask you to also.
So please pray, if you are the praying sort. Pray if you aren't. Because me worrying isn't helping.
