Last night we went over to the Lunds for dinner. They are some pretty good friends of ours and we had a good time. They have twin boys that are Noah's age, a boy that is Jackson's age and a 3 1/2 yr old little girl, who is just a doll. It was so nice to get out and do something to get our minds off of things. It seems like the last year or so we are really getting to be a lot more social and going out with a lot of other couples. Its pretty strange especially cause we really haven't been that way with a lot of people.
While we were there, John got a call from his Mom who had received the Dr.'s reports on her diagnosis. She has Lymphoma type B, which is a pretty common type. They found a mass on one of her ovaries, splatters on her lymph nodes, and they see a dark spot on her lungs that they aren't sure what it is. They recommended an Oncologist, and to get in as soon as she can. When John talked to her, she asked what she should do next. I think she is in shock. All she could talk about was moving to Phoenix, and John just kept telling her to focus on getting into a Dr. She promised that she will call on monday first thing. I know that feeling of numbness and shock, you really don't know what to do next. If our Doctor hadn't made arrangements for Marcus for us, who knows what we would have done. So John will double check on her and make sure she is getting on it. It sounds pretty serious and she might to have surgery. We are keeping positive and hoping that we can be of some help to her. Marcus seems to have taken the news o.k., and thinks he can be a good support for her. It has been a long week, but we made it through o.k. and we look forward to tomorrow when Marcus's friend has his mission farewell , and Marcus goes to get his Patriarchal Blessing. Hopefully it is a sign of a good week ahead.
