Joyce --

Prayers going up for you and your Mom!! Like you, I have seen some of the most awesome things come from the power of prayer!!

Oddly enough, I was reading an article LAST NIGHT about balloon kyphoplasty, and it's supposed to be a fantastic procedure for relieving pain.

Blessings to you and your family -- give your Mom a gentle hug for me!!

Joyce, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom!! :( I am close to my mom--she is 91, and believe me, I can't imagine NOT having her with me. Certainly I'll say a prayer for your mother and for God to give you the strength you and your family need in this time. I know that she can be healed--I've seen too many miracles , and have experienced one myself--prayer and faith can produce many great things!!

I know she is going to be glad to see you tomorrow, and I will be thinking of you as I knit tomorrow!!

You are all treasures I'm posting from my Mom's house...it has been a long day! She took the news much better than the rest of us did...she is one tough lady...of course, she'd have to be since she's been walking around with a tumor and a crack on the spine without alot of complaints, right?

The doctor has postponed the procedure scheduled for tomorrow because he wants to do a consultation with her before doing it so, she and I will be in Raleigh at 3 p.m We talked with her family doctor late today who had discussed her case with the orthopedic doctor and he recommends an appointment with the onocologist prior to have the procedure so steps to shrink the tumor can be taken in order for the procedure to work. We'll know more after the consultation tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the doctor also said that although the MRI showed a "possible" spot on the liver, blood work is usually haywire if there is a problem with the liver and the liver labs done on Mom a couple of months ago were excellent...so, that sounds like good news

Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers...I'm going to work a little on my niece's baby blanket for a while before falling out

I'll keep you posted....Joyce

Thanks Hilde...I had signed up for a needle felting class this coming Saturday, but had to cancel...they will offer it again soon...your clog embellishments have intrigued me...I'd love to make something for Dawson with a frog needle felted...anyway...you all will never know how much I appreciate your support right now because this has really been a difficult time for me...somehow though, I began to feel some peace after reading your posts.... Bless you all.

Joyce
