So I dropped my mom off at the hospital yesterday for an endoscopy. She has been have trouble eating and swallowing. We hoped it was just heartburn. Our hopes were dashed.

It's esophageal cancer. The prognosis is not good. We don't have all the specifics yet. An ultrasound of the esophagus is scheduled for Monday and a PET scan is scheduled for December 11. The PET scan will tell us if the cancer has spread to other organs.

This is her second battle with cancer. Twelve years ago this December she had a bone marrow transplant for leukemia. Her road has not been easy since then but she was cancer-free. Now here we are and this time she is facing an evil that will not be as kind. She's only 55. Please, if you are the praying type, we could use some prayers for her. Prayers for quick reports and quick treatment.
