Hey, guess what?! I'm not writing about my kids today.
Actually, I 'm not writing about me either.
When Miss M was almost 2 weeks old, a dear old (as in since high school) friend called apologizing for not calling sooner. It was the start of the school year and my friend is a teacher and also has a daughter in elementary school so I knew she was busy. "Don't apologize for being busy," I said.
Then she said, "No, things have been nuts." After a summer of trying to determine the cause of her husband's health issues, he had a brain tumor removed. The surgeon went in expecting a cyst but when he came out of surgery he said he didn't like the look of it. They were still waiting for the pathology report as we spoke that day.
I didn't call the day they went for the results and I left a voicemail the following day, but I didn't want to bury them under phone calls so waited.
Today I found out he has class IV Glioblastoma Multiforme, a very aggressive form of brain tumor
I am asking you to pray for my friend's husband (He's in his 40s) and for her and for their daughter as well. While the prognosis for this can be daunting, I know that he is planning on fighting it with everything he's got.
I'm far away so I thought the biggest and best thing I can do is to pray and to ask others to pray too.
