Surgery is scheduled!!!

During August we have met with Anna's plastic surgeon and oncological surgeon and have scheduled her surgery for September 26th. Anna has decided to get a double mastectomy after consulting with the surgeons and looking at the various factors involved. We are trying to do as much as possible to prevent any chance of the cancer coming back in the future. From the beginning Anna has felt like this is the right thing for her to do.

After the surgery Anna won't be able to lift anything over 8lbs for 4-6 weeks. This generally wouldn't be an issue if Ryker & Daphne didn't weigh 30lbs each. This is going to be tough. This is going to coincide with Mabey's Pumpkin Patch and Anna is going to be limited in the amount of activity she can engage in during that time. She really will miss not being able to work the patch. This is something that she really enjoys.


  1. WOW. Anna, what a brave choice. I'll continue to keep you in my prayers. Especially on the 26th.

  2. We will continue to pray for your family, especially on the 26th! Love you guys.

  3. You are the bomb!! You can do this! We are all so proud of you and lucky to know you! We'll continue fasting and praying for you! Love you bunches!
