Vacation Time!

We have been on the go non-stop since about 7:00 a.m. last Friday. And even moreso since yesterday. I can't wait to share with you, sweet blogger friends, upon our return. I'll show you Carson's first time meeting Santa, Hayden's first birthday (my great-nephew), Carson's introduction to solid foods, Carson's first Thanksgiving, and Carson's first (of many to come!) Gatlinburg trips. I can't wait...and your anticipation keeps me going ;)

Now, a prayer request. My mom has been dealing with some vocal issues for about 3-4 (?) years now. It started with "laryngitis" that revealed a polyp on her vocal cords. (I put that in quotes because who knows if that's what it actually was to begin with.) So she had surgery to remove the polyp...but very soon, it returned. So her doc in P'cola sent her to a specialist in Atlanta - Dr. Michael Johns at Emory University Clinic.  -Side note: I can't say enough good things about Dr. J, and I'll just leave it at that.-  Three years -or more- and 7 surgeries later, this thing that they now call a benign granuloma keeps coming back. And each time it returns with greater vengence. Dr. Johns is pretty much the best there is; he's seen the likes of Cold Play, Lauren Hill, and many other big name superstars that use their voice as a way of life. And he has NEVER seen anything like this. He's baffled, doesn't know how to answer questions, doesn't know what to do, doesn't know how to treat it. We're driving back and forth to Atlanta about once or twice every month, and nothing seems to be working. It's a toll on emotions, cars, bank accounts, backs and everything else. If I'm feeling exhausted over this, I can't imagine what my mom must be feeling. So won't you join me in prayer over this? I would very much appreciate it!!
