Mom Update

In February, my mom had reconstructive surgery done for her mastectomy. Because of her chemo and radiation and everything she had been through, she couldn’t do normal implants… they did this procedure where they took tissue from her stomach to recreate her breasts. In the end, after 16 hrs of surgery, she had a tummy tuck and a new rack... that my husband so lovingly has everyone referring to as "Belly Boobs".

She is doing really well… energy is coming back, hair is growing back (although a different color), and things are good. I thank God for the support, comfort, and healing He provided during these trying times. My mom is an amazing woman and uses what she learned from this experience to help others going through breast cancer.

Someone told me the other day that my mom looks great and is on the back of the Harley like nothing ever happened... I pray that this is something behind us and we dont have to deal with it again. I would like to see her on the back of the bike for many more years to come!
