Mom Update

I haven't blogged too much about this lately, because I hate to be a Debbie Downer.

My mom is going to St. Louis this evening and having a double mastectomy tomorrow morning.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I'm cautiously optimistic, because it appears we've caught the cancer early.

Due to our family history and the way the cancer has formed, she has chosen to go the route of having both breasts removed. I 100% support that decision, and while it may seem extreme to some, I think its the only reasonable option.
