A Slight Setback

Well my mom had a slight setback this week.  She was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon because part of her incision is infected.  They wanted to keep a close eye on the infection to make sure they could get it cleared up using a cream because if that didn't work they were going to have to go in and surgically remove the infected part.   Luckily the cream seems to be working and they discharged her this afternoon.  The bad news is they have postponed her chemo treatments which was supposed to start this Thursday.  The oncologist said that once she starts chemo her body will not be able to fight off an infection and that she needs to be 100% healthy before they start it and it is just too risky.  So we wait now for the infection to heal completely and then find out when her chemo treatments will start. 

1 Chronicles 16:11
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

Wow, it must be a really rough time for you and your family. I'll say a prayer for you.

Also, your store is really cute! I wish I would have found your site a couple of weeks ago. My younger son turned one on Sunday!

Still praying for your mother and for your endurance, too. It's a strain when someone you love is sick. Trust you have extra strength and peace today.

Saw your post on the Sits thread.

I am sorry your going through this struggle with your mom. My mom had breast cancer and also ended up with an infection in her incision. I was in high school and it happened the night before my graduation, she was barely discharged in time to make it. I remember how stressful it was and how it seemed unfair on top of all her other trials.

Please take care and I hope you and your mom find some peace so she can heal up and continue her fight.
