Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars.~Unknown

Just wanted to take a second to give a quick update. I am out of town with Travis for my anniversary, but I have kept in touch with everyone all day. They took mom back for surgery at about three. I started getting reports that she was out about three hours later, but I think it took her awhile to wake up after that. I think she had a bad few moments both going into and coming out of the surgery, but I'll let her share the details of that if she would like.

I finally talked to her tonight about 9:30, and I just could not be more proud of her. She sounded so calm and peaceful. She made me promise her that I wouldn't cry, which was virtually impossible. She said she is pretty drugged up, and that the only thing that was uncomfortable was the port, whatever that is. Everyone say a quick prayer that I will be able to help her change her dressings and empty her drain. This mother - daughter love is going to be tested real fast:).

I love my mom. Even more than I realized. The second I heard her voice tonight, all the emotion came. She is the most amazing person I know. I am so proud of her. She is strong, she is positive, she is loving, and she will beat this. Most likely with a smile on her face. I wouldn't trade her for the world.

Thank you for all the prayers today. I think we all really felt them. I will encourage her to update when she feels up to it.

  1. I'm so glad everything went great! What a huge relief. You are amazing Cyndi! Not to sound like a broken record, but you will remain in our prayers. We were saying family prayers last night and I spoke about you. When I was finished, Daxton asked me "Mom, who's Cyndi?" I told him "you know Cyndi, Jaxon & Emory's grandma." Then I went on to tell him what was going on and his response to everything was, "Is she still going to have Christmas?" I am sorry this is happening to you right before Christmas but like Katie said earlier, this will probably be a very special Christmas for you and your whole family. We love you! I hope your recovery goes smoothly. Merry Christmas!
