That is the hardest thing I've ever had to type in my life. She and I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. She is scheduled for a lobectomy on June 16. As far they can tell through preliminary testing, the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes or the chest wall. The doctors will know more once they get in her chest cavity.
She is not in the best of health (diabetes, artery diease, 3 coronary by-passes, etc), but her cardiologist, pulmonary physician and surgeon think she will be able to tolerate the surgery.
So if you can spare a prayer, I'd be grateful.

I'm so sorry for you and your mom but she's lucky I guess because it hasn't spread. Your mom is going to need you and all her family and friends more than ever. What you are all going to go through is going to be hard but not unsurmountable. Keep your heads and your sense of humor. That's right keep a sense of humor because if you don't life will become very bleak. Take time every day to let your mother know just how much she means to you and do what ever you can just to laugh, and when she needs it, cry with her. I'm holding you and your family in my thoughts and I wish you all the best.
