Mom update

So, i've been talking to one of my sisters and my dad and here is what i've found out so far:

The doctors have said that they found a tumor either in or on my mothers stomach, that is the size of a soccer ball. (I honestly don't remember if my sister or dad said it was on her stomach or inside.....i'll find out for sure sometime soon) They know she will need surgery for it, but they want to do other tests first. This weekend she is having a colonoscopy done, and on tuesday they are going to put a camera into her stomach to see what is going on. Of course, they don't know if it's cancerous or not.

It's just all so scary and me being over 500 miles away is killing me.....although, it's not like I could do much if I was there, right? I was holding up just fine until I talked to my dad last night on the phone. Hearing the worry in his voice really scared me, and then he told me my mom said she misses talking to me and Tyler every morning (I call her every morning, just to mainly catch up on family stuff and gossip) and I really lost it. I hung up from talking to him and just completely broke down. Tyler came into the room I was in and kept asking me if I was ok......I hugged him so tight, and just told him mommy was a little worried about things but that everything would be ok.

I'll update this blog as I find out things.......

Thank you all so much for all your love and support!!! **hugs**

Back a few years ago, one of my best friends had a similar problem. She looked as if she were 9 months pregnant. She was in a lot of pain but it was so big that it was pressing on her organs. Maybe they caught your mom’s before it gets as bad as my friends. She really looked like she was full term with triplets. They gave her an I.V. drip of morphine until they could do the surgery. The first doctor she went to misdiagnosed and said she was just getting fat. Lucky your mom, they found hers before it got the size of triplets. She had the surgery in D.C. at Washington Hospital center and last I heard from her she was great. It was not cancer.
I’m sure your mom will be okay. We will definitely keep you both in our prayers. Maybe just to help you pass the time and to help your mom feel good, you and Tyler sit down together and make a get well card for her.

Thanks so much for the support, Pam. How scary for your friend!! Glad to hear all is well now for her, though. I'm sure everything will be ok with my mom as well. I was thinking about letting Ty make her a card.....i'll get on that soon!!
