The Power of Prayer

As many of you know, Lo had her surgery yesterday. I am updating all of you via my blog simply to attest to the power of prayer. For those of you who weren't aware, my sweet mother-in-law Lo was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of the year. I feel that at times, some things are too sensitive to post on a very public blog. But now, I would like to thank each one of you for your prayers for us. Prayer is so powerful!

Her surgery went well and we were told that her lymph nodes were clear! She is now on her way to recovery. We went to visit her briefly last night and I will say for some who just had major surgery she looked fabulous! During her recovery, she will be very well taken care of by family. This is a very strong family unit and mainly because of her. God is so good to us and we pray for a fast recovery with as little pain as possible.

We are encouraged by all the survivor stories that seem to come from everyone and everywhere. Many of you have experienced this battle yourself or with family members or friends. I'm sure you would agree with me that it this cancer doesn't discriminate and can happen to any of us. May we all thank God for our health and our many blessings! And thank you again for all of you who keep us in your thoughts and prayers!!
