*Update 5/30* Prayer request for a friend...
MY mom's best friend and a fellow knitter just found out she has cancer...on Friday she will have her lymph nodes ?sp removed and to see if it has spread...after the operation she will be hit with chemo and radiation...

the cancer is around her lung and a tube that is making it hard for her to breath...they also think it is around the main artery to the heart...they were hoping they would be able to go in and place a stint to open it so she could breath and rest again...she has a horrible cough as well...but they can't, they fear that could cause it to spread even more...

she is ready to do battle and very brave...my mom is falling apart though and it's hard 'cause she is down there crying...I'm up here crying...I wish gas wasn't high I'd leave and go home but I can't...

Linda told mom today (when she stopped by from the dr) to make sure I knew she was going to fight this and when I come in this summer I was teaching her magic loop... even if we had to prop her up with pillows and blankets...anyways if you guys could please add her to your thoughts and prayers...she has a long battle ahead of her...

I'll be praying for her, and add her to our prayer chain as well. God does answer our prayers.

mom's friend went today for the results of the Lymph nodes...they had already told her they were 98% sure they also had cancer cause they were swollen...so she just knew today it was basically to confirm that and move on with chemo and radiation...but the dr in shock said it showed no signs of cancer

So chemo and radiation have been put on hold...she goes back tomorrow and they will go in and take a sample of the mass that is around her lung/heart/tube area...he told her today not to get to excited 'cause again they are 98% sure that it is cancer in there...

Thank you guys for keeping her in your prayers...please keep her there...
