My cousin Rachel

Please read my other post from today too! :D Scroll down for humor and Anna-isms. ;)

I just wanted to thank all of you who posted a comment, and all of you who are praying for my cousin. I really believe in prayer, and my aunt says that she is being strong... so I know all of your prayers are working. :) I told my aunt that it is no surprise, Rachel has always been strong. ;)

Her husband isn't doing quite as well, he is having a really hard time with it all. I told my aunt that I think men in general have a hard time with this sort of thing- I know John was a mess and tried to hide it when I had a caner scare over 4 years ago, when I found a huge mass on my right thyroid. Men are taught at a young age that they should ignore their feelings and just be a man, to grow up, where as us gals are given license to scream and cry from day one. So... if you guys could continue to pray for Matt as well, that would be great, thank you so much!

My aunt Yvonne will be letting my brother know the results of last week's test sometime this week, and she and my uncle flew out to Texas on Sunday. My aunt should also be finding out when Rachel is going to have surgery, so I will let you know.

Again, I can't thank you all enough, on behalf of my family and hers... It really means a lot to me that I can rely on the kindness of fellow bloggers.

Hugs, Mary (mert)

I've been thinking of you and your family. I hope she does well with surgery too. I'm really sorry I haven't been able to visit your blog and comment sooner...work drama and haven't had time outside of work to get online lately. I hope to catch up a bit tonight.

:( I hear you about your cousin's husband... With the cancer issues at my house it has been tough, but we will get through it. I have never seen my husband cry until the reality set in. It has been emotional ups and downs, but with the science and technology today, both he and your cousin will make it through this. I will continue to pray for your family.
