Our young family battling stage IV breast cancer one day at a time

Khaki it is.  The painting hasn’t started yet, but the color has been chosen.  From the comments and emails it was unanimous to go with khaki.  Thank you to everyone for your advice.

My surgery is tomorrow.  The day is almost here.  This is very surreal.  I feel numb again.  I don’t want to do this.  I know I have to, but I don’t want to.  The hospital just called to say that my surgery has been bumped back an hour so it starts at 2:30 and won’t take as long as originally planned.  Probably about four hours. казино шанс

Dusty will be updating the blog throughout the day tomorrow and for the next couple of days.  Please pray for the nurses, surgeons, techs and anyone else who will be in my path during my surgery and hospital stay.  Pray that the cancer is 100% removed and for a successful surgery.   Pray for Dusty as he stands by my side and holds my hand through this.  Pray for Max and Samantha while they stay at Kathy’s house.  Pray for Brooklyn while she stays with her Aunt Jana.  Pray for peace for my entire family and friends.

Dusty and I can’t thank you enough for your prayers.  Thank you for all the cards and emails I’ve received.  I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to respond to all of you, but please know I got them and I thank you for them.

    I didn’t vote, but I like the choice of Khaki. I’m sure it helped you to have your mind on something other than your surgery.
    KNOW that you are in my prayers. This is another hurdle in this cancer journey. You guys have been through so much in the last year, I hope you haven’t felt alone, as hundreds of people have been praying for you.
    God’s peace to you all!!
    Love, Jana

    Hi Lindy and Dusty,
    We have been praying for you to feel God’s peace in the midst of the storm. We were just driving home and heard a favorite song again–“He Is” by Mark Schultz:
    He is, He was, He ALWAYS will be,
    He lives, He loves, He’s ALWAYS with me,
    Even when it feels like there is no one holding me,
    Be still, my soul, Be still, and KNOW, Be still, my soul
    HE IS.
    May God bless you with a restful night, peace through the waiting tomorrow, and His healing hand upon you through the weeks to come.
    With much love,
    Joni Brookens

    I’ll be praying constantly today — first for peace for you and Dusty in the anxious hours leading up to the surgery and then for you and the doctors and the nurses during surgery, and continually for you and your family after it’s over. You’re SO courageous, Lindy! Love you!

  22. Vicki Zylstra says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Dustin, and your family today and in the days to come. As I write, it is 2:30, your surgery time. I am praying that God gives you every ounce of comfort you need at this time and that the doctor’s hands will be steady and sure.

  23. Holly says:

    Praying right now! Lord, remove every bad cell from her body in Jesus Name and completely restore her to health quicker than anyone had imagined. Give her strength to recover, help her as she deals with this lose and help her to feel your presence as she is your created child of God. Surround them with your peace right now in Jesus Name.

  24. julie sal says:

    Praying right now while you are in surgery for all of the individuals in your path today. Praying for the same healing that Samantha experienced 100%! It’s no coincidence that I had to park on Lindy street (because I was running late) yesterday at school. I was so happy to see you as I was heading back to the car. I’m also praying for your kiddos to be blessed with the time spent away and remain healthy.
