Tomorrow Bubba's Mom goes in for her second breast cancer surgery in two weeks - after her surgery on Good Friday, the pathology did not show clean margins, so the surgeon is going back in tomorrow to take out more tissue. This is her third fight with breast cancer - it is a scary disease that not only has physical ramifications, but also plays mind games that can make one an emotional wreck. When Bubba's Mom got the news this week that there was still cancer in there and more surgery needed, she was rightfully scared and upset. The word quickly went out amongst all our friends and family (don't you love e-mail??); and the love started pouring in. People called, e-mailed, even came by to see her to say they love her and are praying for her. All week there has been a constant flow of caring thru her house and into her heart. She told me tonight, "I feel like I've been wrapped up in a giant quilt of love!" What an awesome feeling! She can go into that surgery tomorrow morning with peace, knowing that there are so many people praying for her and thinking of her, and that Jesus is holding her in the palm of His hand. And the surgeon will get ALL that cancer out this time, and she will be a three-time champion in beating this damn disease! Go Mama! I love you!
I Could Use Less Excitement, Too
