I'm so happy to report that my sister is doing well and while the official pathology report won't be back until next week, we have every reason to believe that this was a benign tumor. Below is the update from my brother-in-law. I couldn't have said it any better!

"Anna's surgery was yesterday morning. Everything went perfectly! Anna will be sore and have to take some pain medication for a couple of days and then should be back to her ole self! The surgeon said that looking at the tumor there is NOTHING about it that shows any signs of any cancer. They have sent it off the the lab to be tested to make 100% sure and we should know that some time next week. Basically the Doctor didn't want to go "on record" saying it was cancer-free, just in case, but that look in his eye to us, was basically saying not to worry at all, because it's not Cancer (just like all the biopsies showed)!
So many folks that we all have known & loved over the years have struggled, fought and battled with cancer... so we are overwhelmed with joy that God's sovereign plan for our little family right now was not to have to fight that battle. But what a comfort to know that that same
faithful God would have led us even if the news would have be bad!
Thank you all for your prayers. It's a true blessing to have so many friends and family praying, calling, and emailing... and having the 2 grandmothers cooking us lots of food is nice too!!! But hard on the diet!
Thanks Again, We love you guys,
Anna, Tyson & David!"

And in other news, I have a new phone! Whew - Nokia to the rescue!

Sigh. Of. Relief.
And gotta love how reliant we are on the cell now, huh?

It's really unbelievable! I felt TOTALLY lost without my cell phone. But we don't have a home phone so that makes it even worse. I do have an office phone paid for by LexisNexis but I hate landlines!
