The Time has Come!

Today I leave for Spokane and will stay the night as I do the preparations needed for my surgery.  I report to the hospital at 6 am and my surgery starts at 7.  It is a LONG surgery, but when there are updates, Larry will post on the blog to let everyone know how things are going...I am nervous (insanely nervous), but ready! 
I feel strong, supported, hopeful, loved... and I am ready to kick cancer's butt!

You are ALL adding to my strength and your prayers are being answered...please keep it up and know how much I appreciate you!!!

in 1 week you will be amazed at how far you have come in defeat of this. You don't have to be a strong woman because you are in reality a woman with Great strength!
We are all praying for you and the many helping hands that will carry you through this. We pray for your husband and little girls so they know that this is what you need to do to spend MANY more years together. Hope is like a butterfly-it flits and darts but is always within reach -if you hold very still and open yourself to it's presence. Our love to you and your family

You have been in my heart and prayers constantly all weekend. I am praying that all goes well and that someday all of this will be some great motivational story that you share at Stake Conference - a memory of strength, faith, and fortitude that will be in your PAST! We love you and our prayers are with you, please keep us posted, we love you!
