Hello everyone, sorry for the sporadic disappearing act. These past few weeks have been spastic/hectic to say the least. Three Sundays ago I got a call from my Dad that seemed relatively routine until the end of the conversation when he told me that my Mom had skin cancer. The way that he said it & the fact that he saved it til the end of our casual conversation really threw me off & I felt like I was trapped in a bad dream. I of course went into full panic mode because that freaking C-word just has a way of immediately knocking the life out of you. Fast forward through all my hysterics & tears I bought a plane ticket to come home the next weekend after they preformed her procedure to remove the skin cancer from her face.
My Beautiful Little Momma & I
I'm so lucky to have such a great support system & have really been blessed with truly great people in my life. After speaking with many people I was shocked to hear how many of them knew people who had been treated for skin cancer & were now living normal healthy lives. As reassuring as it was to hear that, it was still "MY MOM!!!" & it was happening to her so I was still very on edge. I'm proud to say that 32 stitches later she is cancer free & doing great :) It was so great getting to be with my family for a couple of days & to see my Mom in person & see that she was ok! Moral of the story, I hug everyone I love a little tighter these days because you never know what the future holds. Thanks so much again to everyone who kept her & my family in their prayers, it was a great comfort & meant the world to us!
