Thank you so much for the sentiments, heartfelt words of encouragement and passionate prayers for us as a family and on behalf for Sally and extended family members. We are so blessed to be a part of the Body of Christ. You have demonstrated God's love towards us in the midst of this storm and we THANK YOU for that!!
You don't know how much it means to us - and even as hard as it is for us to be so far away...we have felt God's sustaining power and strength in the midst of the storm.

Update on Mom:
**She has been sleeping a lot mostly due to some of the medications she is currently on. Tim had a chance to talk with her briefly last night when she was awake.
**Two tumors have been found in her brain - a 1" by 1" mass and the other a smaller spot.
**a complete body CT scan has revealed a spot on her lung.
So, here is what is to follow. On Monday, a biopsy will be done on the spot on her lungs. If the results come back that its the same type of cancer she had previously back in 2001, then the options for treatment are good.
However, if the biopsy report comes back as different than the type of cancer she has had, they then must call in a specialist to do a biopsy on her brain to determine what kind of cancer she has and what her treatment options are.
Depending on the test results, will determine how long she will stay in the MN hospital.
It has been advised from the doctor that Mom will need help and assistance from her family. Her family is working on what will be in her best interest and for the follow up care through surgery, recovery and treatment.
Tim and I have been discussing what he should do and we both agree that it is important for him to go and be with his mom and to assist his sisters in anyway possible.
Tim will most likely be flying out on Thurs Jan 9th. for an undetermined amount of time.
Many people have been asking how they can help us in this situation, and for those who are wanting to do so, we could really use help in the expense of this unexpected circumstances. His expenses will be quite significant which covers the cost of his airfare, food/lodging and on the ground travel expenses incurred along the way.
