It's seems lately we have had a lot of request for prayers for cancer patients/victims. And yet here is another one...

My MIL had skin cancer removed next to her eye approximately 2 years ago. In the past few months, the same area had begun to swell. She had other family issues to handle and decided to ignore it. A couple of weeks ago a friend of hers told her the swelling looks worse and that she really should have it checked out. So she did and she was told the cancer had returned but now it was deeper into the skin to the point where it looks like it was going under the her eye heading towards her brain. She didn't realize that skin cancer could get that bad. She is having surgery tomorrow to have it removed. Because it is so deep into her skin a plastic surgeon needs to do the surgery and then replace what he takes out with fatty tissue from a another part of her body.

Now, I may not get along with my MIL all the time, but I do care about her, she is the mother of my husband, my children's grandmother, and without her her mentally handicapped brother and youngest son and his family would be lost and homeless. She is very scared about the surgery. Unfortunately, my MIL does not have the best of luck when it comes to doctors, hospitals, and especially surgery. She is one of those people that if something is going to go wrong, it goes wrong for her.

Please send prayers and positive thoughts tomorrow for a successful surgery and quick recovery time. I appreciate it and thank you all.

Prayers are coming. My father just had to have some minor surgery to have a different form of skin cancer removed from just above his eyebrow. He had the stitches removed the other day and the doctor said his head looked beautiful - so there is hope.

Finally saw my MIL last night. She looks pretty good, still swollen, but not too noticible. My kids didn't even know she had surgery on her face. We also didn't tell them, they're too little, no use in worrying their little minds. I say another month and no one will be able to tell at all.

Thank you again to everyone for their prayers and positive thoughts smile
