Thank you, dear Lord!

Rebecca is home.

Charleston Ballet Theatre is performing Cinderella this weekend. A few children were picked to be the roman numerals on a clock. They dance a very small part in the show but what an honor to be one! Holland is midnight, a most important number, wouldn't you say?

I feel guilty being at the ballet while my niece is in the hospital, while my sister and her family struggle with their many decisions concerning Rebecca's cancer. Yet, Holland has a responsibility which she signed up for before her cousin became sick. She will honor that responsibility and dance her best. I will take in the show and applaud and love seeing my daughter on stage at The Sottille Theatre and hopefully get lost in the magic of the ballet as always. However, I believe my thoughts will be with my family.

From my sister's pastor

After a second surgery last night to reduce swelling...

"Rebecca is still resting this morning. She is breathing on her own and is able to recognize mom and dad and respond to commands. The doctors are still monitoring her swelling but are pleased with how things went last night in surgery. Please keep praying today. Pray that she will be able to rest and that mom and dad get some rest as well."

From Rebecca's daddy...

"Just spoke with the doctor. The doctor removed a tumor the size of a lime. The tumor was sent for testing. Results will be available near the end of the week. However the doctor believes it is medulo blastoma and is likely cancerous. If so, she will start on radiation and chemotherapy. Survival rate is 70 percent. We are doing fine. Thank you for your prayers and your support."

Please pray for my beautiful niece, Rebecca, today. She will be having major surgery this afternoon. Rebecca had been feeling sick for a few weeks and Saturday, after being taken to the emergency room, the doctors found a tumor. I will post further information about her when I can. Thank you, my friends.
