Quick Update...

Yesterday afternoon some guests came into town to film a special story on our family. We got together last night for some of mom's good lasagna and to share our stories with the film crew. Even though there were ten of us we still had leftovers (as you probably know, mom doesn't know how to cook for a small number of people). We laughed, shared childhood memories, and shed plenty of tears. Before we knew it, it was 10pm and we were all exhausted.

After a late night, mom woke up this moring feeling horrible. She spent all day in bed with Kathy by her side. As the day progressed she began feeling worse and worse, but since she's supposed to be having chemo tomorrow we were hoping she'd be able to make it through the day and wait until tomorrow to see the doctor. By about 5:30pm her fever hit 102 degrees and we all decided that mom couldn't wait anymore. Angie and Shannon are taking mom down to UW Medical Center and the film crew is shortly behind. I'm sure they had no clue what they were getting themselves in to when they called and said they wanted to do a story on our family. We always seem to be on a rollercoaster of emotions.

We'll fill you all in as we know more, but for now Dad and I are headed to be with mom at UW.

Praying for the best,

I prayed myself to sleep last night and through the day. I am here at my moms house sharing what I read. I can't help but to get thick in the throat and cry. I hope that your momma is feeling better today.
