So Long

I wrote on here a few months ago about my mother-in-law, Jodie, being diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of last year. Today she had surgery to remove her tumor. Scott and I woke up at 3:30 this morning so we could pick her up and be at the hospital in Fayetteville by 5:00. Its been a long day. According to her doctors the surgery went great and she seems to be recovering very well. She's actually going to go home tomorrow and Scott and I plan on spending the majority of our time with her for the next few weeks.
If you think about us please keep us in your prayers for fast healing and that her biopsy comes back with clean margins. I would greatly appreciate it.

While we were in the waiting room I couldn't help but notice three huge canvas paintings of Iris's on the wall. I just sat there for what seemed like forever, anxious and nervous about the next few hours with nothing to look at but those paintings. It made me think about the beautiful Iris's that were planted in my back yard this week and I feel as if every time I look at them now I'll remember this day. A day of fear and sadness but also a day of celebration for a new life that, hopefully, just kissed this cancer goodbye.
