My mom is being very strong (as she usually is). She is hopeful for a less serious form of cancer that is treatable. Of course we all hope for that and will pray for it. I can't help but let my mind wander at all the possibilities though.
On Saturday her ward gathered together at the church and began a fast for her and another woman in her ward who also has cancer. She said many people joined in on the fast and all knelt in the relief society room to open the fast with a prayer. It is touching to see how many people care about her. I know she is wonderful but so many others know as well. It makes me feel very lucky that I get to have her as my mom.
