Prayer request

We found out recently that my 26 year old sister, Adrian, has a large tumor on her kidney. On Monday, she will go in for surgery to have the tumor removed along with her kidney. The doctors say that the tumor is most likely cancer, but we wont know for sure until the tumor is biopsied. If praying is what you do, please pray for my sister and our family. If not, please keep us in your thoughts. Thanks.

Alisha,
where is she having this done? In Lima? Ft. Wayne? Will you be able to go home?
Please keep us updated on her condition.
I am a prayer and I will continue to pray for her.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers.

Lis,
Adrian will be in Lima at St. Rita's. I will not be flying home. I thought long and hard about it and decided not to because it really doesnt matter to Adrian either way if we are there. She doesnt have the ability to comprehend her circumstances. Also, the doctors have said that the surgery is relatively low risk and they have done it successfully many times over. I just dont feel like my (our) presence would make a bit of difference in a positive way...and may even impact things negatively because of the conflict between me and mom. I know I will regret it terribly if something bad happens, but I'm praying too and keeping faith in God's plan for Adrian.
