Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately this is not a happy post. Both of my sisters have found out that they have cancer, one last week & one this week.

My sister Tammy who lives in CA had emergent brain surgery yesterday for a massive brain tumor. Her husband & daughters noticed that she was slurring her words & not acting right so they took to the E.R. the night before. She showed no symptoms prior to this, so we are so thankful that they acted so quickly. I've only been able to get little bits of information from my parents, but they said last night that the doctors thought they had gotten it all! I asked some co-workers to pray yesterday for her & the power of prayer worked!!! Now, I don't know what's happening next or how she is doing today, but I keep praying.

My other sister, Tammy who lives here in VA found out last week that she has Breast Cancer. Fortunately they found it early, so they think she will be fine. She goes in this Friday for a lumpectomy, then will have 3-6 wks of radiation then have reconstructive surgery (her husband is looking forward to implants), but she hasn't decided on that yet.

My boys don't know yet, as I haven't seen them & I don't want to tell them over the phone. Their uncle on their dad's side passed away from a brain tumor a couple of years ago, he was only 40. I will not be seeing them until late Christmas Eve, as they will be with their dad. I don't want to have to tell them all this on Christmas Eve, but we are going to my sisters house on Christmas & I know that there will be talk of both she & my other sister.

My Husband's sister was just admitted to a detox center in South Carolina last night because she is addicted to sleeping medication, which she has not had in a little & she is going through withdrawals.

For those who are wondering, I do have 2 sisters named Tammy, it wasn't a typo. :)

I haven't posted anything to my FB page, because I don't want my boys to see it, I know they won't check my blog though.

I have been crafting through the midst of all this (keeps my mind off of things), so I will be sharing some projects soon.

If you would keep my family in your prayers I would really appreciate it.
