Prayers for Maria's Mom

Just a quick note to ask all of you to pray for Maria's mother. We found out today that Maria's mom has breast cancer, and she'll be needing to have surgery very soon to have some of the cancer removed. We don't know a whole lot yet, but she'll be meeting with doctors and surgeons on Monday - so please keep her in your prayers, and in your thoughts.

Victim of dog abuse?

Koko has a huge swelling on the side of his face. We were afraid it was cancer, but the vet seemed to think that it was a sialocele (salivary gland cyst from breakage of the duct). Joel reminded me that I had accidentally kicked Koko in the head a couple days ago, so this is probably the cause. The cytologist thought it was a hyperplastic lymph node and didn't see evidence of the salivary gland involvement. We have a surgical consult next week. He's a sad baby.
