Update on mom...kind of.

I drove into Abilene late last night and was able to help mom out through the night. She's doing much better today, not in a lot of pain, just tired and a little uncomfortable.
The doctor called this morning and confirmed that the tumors were cancerous, however, he could not be any more specific. He told my dad yesterday that they would send the tumors for testing and the results would be back in 2-3 days. So, when he called this morning I was really anxious to hear the results and a little impressed that the tests had come back so quickly. Instead, he said they needed to conduct further testing at their "other" lab in Dallas and that we wouldn't know those results until Monday or Tuesday of next week.
I'm trying to patient but it's really hard. I am not by nature a patient person. I'm trying to stay positive, but that's really hard too. Mom, on the other hand seems to be very peaceful and calm about everything. I know that is a huge blessing. Thanks for the prayers and words of encouragement and I'll update when I know more.

May I bring your family dinner?

I can put the author (the one visiting our campus from The Valley) on a plane Saturday and then shop & cook this weekend. I could bring food by the house Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday night...whatever works for your family...just let me know.

Still praying,
