Just a short update..

Well, here we are. This is the week that we have been waiting for since my dd started college. This is graduation week. This is also the week that my Mother finished her radiation treatments and she is very exhausted. I have been having some difficult days. I will admit that even though I don't normally cry too often this has not been the case for the last month. I have days with my Mother when she is alert and content but there are days where she is exhausted.
 I spent a few hours yesterday getting the last of the decorations for the graduation party. I have most everything purchased but dh and I went to see about getting him a few new things too. My dress still has not come for Saturday so I am holding my breath that it comes and that I like it!!! There has not been much time to shop so I ordered it over the Internet, I will let you know if this was such a great idea!
 Tomorrow we are headed to Columbus to see about an alternative treatment for my Mother. We have exhausted all the conventional treatments so we are looking for a little hope in another way.
  I would like to thank everyone for all your kind words but most of all your prayers. I know that we are having a miracle each and every day that my Mother is pain free. It is hard to believe that we have only known that she is sick since March 28th and that we are now told she has very little time. We continue to pray for miracles each and every day and we will not stop looking for  help until she tells us to stop. Please remember us as we are traveling a difficult road and there is no road map for us to follow. I appreciate all of you more than you know.
 We are so happy and proud of our daughter and when we graduates we will be sure to take lots of pictures to share with you.
  May the Lord bless and keep you safe. Blessings until we meet again.

You remain in my thoughts and prayers. Try to enjoy the graduation even if the dress isn't perfect.

Keeping my fingers crossed for your dress to be perfect.
And also keeping your Mom and all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Are you coming down to OSU James Hospital? They do very good work there.
