Surgery day

Right now joe and I are driving into Osu for my neuro surgery. It is a beautiful fall day and if I didn't have to have my brain operated on today. I'm sure I would have taken Jacob to the park or stayed at home with Lauren since she is running a fever. Anything but the first option would be fine with me. Overall I have tried to keep a positive outlook considering this surgery. My doctors have been very positive. We have so many family and friends who are praying for us and we feel comfort in that. It is hard to think where we would be without our super system here in Columbus.
I remembered I last week when joe and I traveled down 315 on our way to meet the neuro oncologist we were both in tears because we were so unsure of what the doctor would tell us about my cancer. Today both of us are much more calm heading into what maybe the most important day to save my life and health for years to come. I never thought I would get this awful disease. I never thought the cancer would have spread to my brain. I never fathomed that cancer would make me a kinder mother, spouse and friend. For those life lessons I am grateful. Joe or Kate will update this blog when my surgery is finished.


  1. Lynn, I'm sure soon you will be able to enjoy many, many beautiful fall days with your kiddos for years to come. You're in our prayers.

  2. I love you and I am praying for you and your family today!

  3. Praying for you and the surgical team, Dale!!
