I am writing from the waiting room of the hospital in Tennessee.
My mom was rushed into the ER on Mother's Day with chest pain. They discovered that she had a substernal thyroid goiter that is wrapped around muscles and arteries. Its serious. They won't know if its cancerous until after the surgery.
They had to take a few weeks to find the three specialist that would be needed for her surgery...here we are now.
She got to see all of her children and grandchildren in the past couple of weeks. She is at peace with what ever God wills to happen, but we are praying that God allows Mom to be with us for many more years (she's only 62).
The past several weeks have been very difficult. My parents don't have insurance and it has only added more stress to an already difficult situation.
We are doing a novena to Blessed John Paul II for a miracle. If you would like to join us in praying the prayers right now as she is in surgery, you can go to the website that one of her friends created www.susanbrindle.org
Thank you for your prayers!
Please keep my family in your prayers and especially pray that the surgery will be a success
