Here we go!
Hey all! Barb left me (Anna, the oldest daughter) in charge of the blog today, so bear with me through any spelling or grammar errors! Mom left the hotel room this morning to head over to MD Anderson bright eyed and bushy tailed for surgery prep at 5 am! She should be well into surgery now, they started at 7.She says she's ready for this part of the journey to be over but she is scared (probably more than she'll admit) about what comes after, just like the rest of us here with here with. MDA will have a nurse come out every even hour to let the family know how she is doing and where they're at, I'll try to get another post out every check in and when she's out. I can't thank you all enough for your thoughts prayers and actions over the past few months, it's a great feeling to know we have this much support behind us the whole way through! See you again in a few hours!

Prayers for you, Barb, and your surgery team have been this morning's priority. And praying for family in the waiting room as that's the tough place to be right now. Hope it helps in some small way to know you are being lifted up.

On Dec. 5, 2014, I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. And that's where we start. If you're here for the first time, you'll have to read from the bottom (no pun intended!) up. Go to Dec 2014 and scroll to the bottom of the page...
