Thank you all for the emails and for the comments here on my blog. And especially thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

We now know that mom has a brain tumor. Right frontal lobe. At this point that's about all we know. She is scheduled for a biopsy on June 12. The three week long wait for the biopsy is necessitated by the fact that she is taking Plavix and that needs to be stopped for two to three weeks before surgery. Once they get the biopsy, they can determine the next step.

We met a neurologist and two neurosurgeons today. All seemed like very kind, caring men. We also met two wonderful nurses. Mom will be in good hands.

And we know that she is in the best hands.......she is in God's hands. Please continue to pray.

Oh my gosh, I mean my jaw literally fell opened when I read this. I just don't know what to say. Please know I am thinking of you, your family and of course your mother. I am so glad you have your faith. Even though I am far away,I hope you can feel the warmth of a hug through the computer. I hope all goes well in God's plan.

I'm continuing to pray for your family. Your mother has such wonderful kids to take such good care of her. That goes to show what a great job your mom did raising all of you. Hang in there.

Oh my. What a shock for you. I will continue to pray... three weeks seems a terribly long time.
Your mom is indeed in the best hands: God's.

I'm sorry to read of the diagnosis for your mom. I pray that this is something that can be treated very effectively. I know you were looking for answers. I'm sorry the answer isn't something easier. How good it is that your mom has such wonderful kids.

I am very sorry to hear about the tumor, but I am thankful that you have met the doctors and nurses and are confident in their abilities. I will pray that the biopsy and any necessary surgeries go well. Your mom is the matriarch of a wonderful family!
