Worried Week

Last week my family and I got the news that our 89 year old Abuelita (grandma) has colon cancer.  And today the doctors performed surgery to try to remove the cancer.  Please keep her and my family in your prayers during this time....I'd really appreciate it.

My Abuelita lives in El Salvador, that's where my parents are both from. I feel good knowing that my dad has been by her side for the past 3 weeks.  It saddens me to think of someone going through something as scary as this alone.  She's a strong lady in heart and spirit. I just hope that her body is strong enough to handle the stress of the surgery....


***UPDATE:  Abuelita made it through her surgery this week!!  She woke up and asked my dad for something to eat, which is a good sign :)  Thank you for all your support and well wishing for me and my family this week.....Looks like we are going to see her celebrate her 90th this year!! Hooray!!!

Liz, So sorry to read about your abuelita. The fact that they could operate on her at 89 makes clear that she is still a very strong woman. Sending lots of positive energy and thoughts your way. xo, t.
