Prayer Requests

I am thankful for the friends and family that I know keep up with us through this blog. And for the new friends and "blogging family" that I have since starting this blog! I come to you today with a need for your prayers. I have been carrying this around for several days and was afraid to mention it because my mother wanted to wait until we knew more, but then the thought occurred to me that by not telling those closest to me and asking them to pray, it was almost like asking them NOT to pray! And I am a believer in prayer and its power! So, I am requesting that you please remember my dad today in your prayers as he undergoes a CAT scan to further investigate a small mass that his doctor found on one of his lungs last week. I would ask that you pray that the mass not be of a malignant nature and that the doctor will be able to diagnose and treat whatever it may be. And pray for my mom. I know she is worried much more than she will ever allow others to know.

Thank you so much. I'll post an update when we know more about this.
Oh, and please say a little prayer for my two boys. They will BOTH be having tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies next Sat. A wonderful way to celebrate Valentine's Day, I know! It's VERY nerve-wracking to think of both of my babies being put to sleep for surgery! And then 2 weeks of recovery. Thank you so much for your prayers.
Love,
Nicole
