We are sitting in the waiting room at Methodist Hospital…surounded by many friends and family. I am reminded this morning just how loved my dear mama is…thank you to everyone for your encouragement and prayers!

Sleep eluded me last night, but provided lots of opportunity for prayer. We all arrived at the hospital before 5AM, and so far all has gone according to the schedule.

Mom was taken back to the operating room around 7AM and the surgery is expected to take 4 hours. I will update my blog as the day progresses.

Blessings to you all for your prayers and encouragement!
