Paige is going to have surgery in the morning. I noticed a lump on her right shoulder blade two weeks ago and the doctor thinks we need to get it out right away. We don't know what it is (one doctor called it a cyst, one doctor called it a tumor) - but it will be sent to the pathology lab for tests. The doctors were both very reassuring that the chance that it would be cancerous were extremely slim, but it will be a big relief when the labs all come back clean. Normally, I wouldn't post things like this until I have good news to report, but I figured we could use a few extra prayers right now. My dad and brother came down tonight to give her a blessing - it was beautiful and the nervousness I have felt all day because she needs to be sedated has gone away. I know things will be fine - I am so grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost - I have been reminded in an incredible way this week why he is also known as the Comforter.
