Prayer for my mom

It is past midnight and I am not a nite owl so this post may be a little scattered.

I would like to ask you to say a prayer for my mom. A few months ago she found a lump in the back of her mouth/throat. After many doctor visits, She has been diagnosed with Adenoid Carcinoma of the minor salivary gland (hard palette). The ear nose throat specialist has sent her test results to Vanderbilt for review. She should be hearing from them this week. The treatment for this type of cancer is normally surgery to remove it and then radiation treatments.

My parents have been talking to an oncologist in Fl. The good news is that this cancer is completely curable. If it is caught early enough it can be completely cured. It is not a type that goes into remission. Please pray that it is confined and the treatments will cure it.

It was only a few months ago we watched Kiah go through eye injections. God touched her and her vision went from 400/20 back to normal.

The oncologist they are talking with in Fl. is actually a man that Wendell went to school with. Not only is he an oncologist but he actually wrote the book chapter on adenoid cystics of the trachea in the Radiation Oncology textbook. We serve an amazing, all knowing God!

The road to recovery will not be easy or short but I have a tough mom and an Amazing God. Mom is working on starting a blog. I'll post the link for it when it is up and running.
