Default Update on my mom

Some already know from me posting about her before but my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer in September of last year. She went through 6 weeks of chemo and radiation treatment in October through November.
She had her surgery to remove the tumor on February 13th. The surgery went well and the dr was pleased with everything. It has, however, been a difficult recovery for her. She does get up everyday and tries to do something, some days she does too much because she's just stubborn like that!!
Anyways, right now her iron is extremely low so she's having to go in to get iron through her port. It's hard to find something for her to eat that taste good to her. There are things that sound good to her but when she eats them it just isn't.
Her next surgery will be April 14th and after she has recovered from that she will go through 4 months of chemo. I've been warned that the second surgery will probably be even harder on her. I'm not ready for that at all. I thought I was braced for how she would be after the first surgery, but when I walked into the hospital room I lost it!! I know no one looks good right after surgery but I guess I didn't anticipate her looking like that.
I appreciate the thoughts and prayers from everyone and I ask that you just please continue them. Even though things have been rough and I've been though something I wouldn't wish any person to see their parents go through, I am so blessed that things are this good. It could be so much worse. I think about those that the hope for them seems out of their reach. I think about those precious babies & children that are battling cancer and what they go through.
I absolutely give all the glory to God for watching over my mother and healing her day by day!!

"Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits-- who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion," -Psalm 103:2-4

Hi Amy, I am glad your Mum is doing as well as can be expected, it's a long road to travel and I have been on it too with my Mum. We are thankfully now 5 yrs in remission but reading your thread made me remember like it was yesterday. Your Mum will get through this, she sounds like a strong lady. xx

Amy, so good to hear from you and get an update on your Mom. As hard as the road has been on her and you, I am thankful she is doing as well as she is. I thank the Lord for answered prayer and will continue to remember both of you!

Thank you so much everyone! You have no idea how much I appreciate your prayers and concern.
She seemed to have a better day today so hopefully her getting this iron is giving her somewhat of a boost!
