Yesterday...our little part of the world cracked a little bit more.  The doctor called and said "it's cancer".  Her surgery did not go as we'll as we had hoped.  They took mom from me at 7:17 for what they estimated would be a 90 minute procedure and it was 11:15 when they got done.  The doctor came and talked to me and was very optimistic.  Said I could see her in about an hour as long as she woke up ok.  3.5 hours later, I was finally taken back to her.

We have been discussing her options from a family standpoint.  But are waiting to hear what stage it is at...that will take a week.

Mom and I went out to dinner last night and she also broke the news to me that she is in stage 3 of renal (kidney) failure.  Meaning...I don't know if her body CAN handle chemo or radiation treatment.

I don't even know what to say at this point...we are badly battered and bruised.  Is it possible to feel like an orphan at my age.  Cause I feel pretty lost right now.

2012 has sucked on so many levels and every time I think I'm about to overcome it, it kicks me in the teeth AGAIN.

Praying for strength and courage.
