When the world stops

***UPDATE***
I have wonderful news now (1 week later). Pip and her parents have gotten the best news possible. No radiation or chemo is necessary. There may be a 2nd surgery in 4-6 weeks to get the remaining tumor (if it doesn't shrink on it's own). Otherwise, HOME. Can you believe how great that is?? Thanks for the prayers and well wishes!



Have you ever had your world stop? I hope not. It usually means something terrible has happened. A phone call. A knock on the door. A doctor telling you something dreadful.

I received the phone call. However, my sister and her husband received the dreadful information from the doctor at some point yesterday.

My 14 year old niece was diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a small orange. She was taken into surgery this morning. Brain surgery.

I absolutely love that girl. I remember the first day I held her. And, I remember the last time I saw her she was at my son's birthday party in January. At 14 she's already grown into loving cardmaking and I'd gotten her a scrapbooking kit for Christmas.

If you pray please pray for her, the doctors, my sister and brother in law.

If you make cards, do so and send them to me. I will get them to her. She will LOVE them.

This is her- isn't she a beauty!

Thanks!
