I took a few days off to go to Nashville this weekend. As some of you know, my step-mom is battling Stage 4 cancer. I talked a little bit about it a couple of months ago, but decided to stay quiet about it on the blog since then.
After chemotherapy on her body and radiation to her brain, it appears that the treatments may have come to an end. We have found out that neither treatment was successful and that we have almost run out of options.
There isn't a day that goes by that several people aren't praying for her. Praying for healing... praying for comfort... praying for whatever will make the situation better in the eyes of the world.
Of course, we all wanted her to fight this horrible beast again, but God had other plans. We often do not understand God's plan, but we have to recognize that he is in control. I will admit, it's extremely hard to accept that truth in times like this, but I still believe he is in control. We sometimes do not understand his plan, but one day it will make perfect sense to us all.
Emotionally it has been a tough week, especially for my Dad. My step-mom is stronger than all of us put together. That's something I have admired since I was a kid. She' one tough lady!
Please continue to pray for my parents and family.
