prayin..

Getting down on my knees
To pray
Is usually not my thing
But at this time
Its more than necessary
When you hear those devistating words
"Your mom might have cancer"
It changes your outlook on life
You are down on your knees
Prayin'
Faster than you can say "down"
Hearing that your life may change in a few days
Will change your outlook on life
No matter the outcome

Pretty terse verse there, Elle ... I truly hope it is not based on your personal experience ... ?

Well that sucks. I was in your mom's position a few years ago ... scary. And rather annoying, actually.

You're in our thoughts. Keep us posted.

Elle, I'm so sorry to hear that. Even with all the tension and such that has gone on between you, when you face something like this, you find out what really matters - and it isn't usually whatever you fought about.

Keep prayin', darlin'.

Keep an upbeat outlook, Elle. I was in a similar situation in 1986, diagnosed positive, had surgery, etc. Am checked on regularly but with what medicine can do these days, I'm still in here being a noodge about getting everyone to answer the challenges. :)

will keep in thoughts and prayers. Hopefully they will have answers soon.

But, in the meantime keep a good attitude-tell your mom to keep a good attitude and SMILE at her, it will make a difference.
