Deal?

"I'm going to make a deal with God," Mom said, face wet with tears as she leaned on Dad's stoic shoulder as they sat together on his bed in the emergency room. "I'll go with you."

Mom's breast biopsy came back on Thursday morning - it was positive for breast cancer.

Dad went to the hospital for low hemoglobin levels on Friday - Mom's birthday. His CT scan - ordered to look for a bleed - revealed a large mass on his pancreas, liver and intestines.

We await a maternal MRI and paternal PET and biopsy.

Please pray.

I mostly lurk via bloglines, but have commented once or twice. Couldn't read without stopping by to say how sorry I am to read this. I pray that the way forward will be clear and filled with peace in the next few days.

Oh Dear! I'm mainly a lurker, Katie, but I had to leave some words of encouragement. You write beautifully and don't deserve this. My prayers are with you and your family. I hope that you are able to find some peace in these stressful days of not knowing.
