My mom

So I just talked to my mom and she told me her cancer is progressing to the point where most people at this stage only live for another year. I wish I could tell you how I felt when I heard this but I can't. There are not words to express. It hurts. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago and had a double mastectomy. A couple of years ago we found out the cancer cells returned to her lungs and bones. Just last week she learned that they had spread to her liver and lower spine. She is now going threw her second batch of chemo which after it is all said and done, will help her feel much better. Whats hard for me right now is the though of her not being here. That hurts and makes me want to cry. I love my mom. She is such an incredible woman and I don't want God to take her away from us. She is so strong though. She love God so much and is at peace with what ever He has in store for her. If I had half the unconditional love and strength that my mom has I would be a better man. I don't know what else to say other than please pray for my mom. I don't know who reads this blog anymore but if you do pray. Prayer is powerful. God is miraculous. If he wanted to he could rid her body of cancer in an instant. God's love heals!

  3. Tim, God is miraculous. Even if physical death is what is to come. Over the last two years, I watched cancer take a precious student of mine. But God was faithful - present through it all. I learned alot more about His soveriegnty and provision through her battle. It was hard to lose her, but I know where she is now! I know that the pain and heartache of experiencing this with your mom will not even compare to what I experienced with my student. You all will be in our prayers!
    love,
    Tuttle & family <><

  4. Hi,
    You made this post in February, and it's now October, but I hope your mom is still well. I just came by your blog randomly, while searching really with no aim on google, posts and articles about people who really love their moms.. I've been really worried about losing my mom lately and reading blogs of people who feel the same way seem to comfort me. Anyhow, I pray for the best for your mother :)
    Take care!
