Good News re: Mom!

The Dr. is guardedly optimistic that Mom just has a bunch of cysts on her pancreas. It may also be that the ducts are too narrow and hence causing pain and digestive issues. Can I get a resounding Alleluia???

A huge thanks to RJ and L for caring for Mom this morning. And I heard that several friends sent Mom a huge bouquet of flowers. She really has an awesome support network.

The biopsy results should be available Monday night.

Doing a happy dance!!!

How to Help Mom (for now)

Welcome to the Updates on Mom postings. If you want JUST postings about mom, please click on that category in the box to the left.

Any of you who are here know STeuber (I do keep some things nebulous since blogs are public). Hi – I am Marianne, her daughter. If you need to reach me for any reason – and this info is public and shareable – I am at:

mariannedecher (@) comcast (dot) net.

503 X 348 X 2668

(Written like that on purpose so trolls and auto copy systems don’t spam me. If you contact me and I don’t know you, please give me some clues that you actually know mom and are not a spammer. Thanks).

As is typical with what Mom will be going through in the medical system, there will be much hurry up and wait. Waiting for calls. Waiting for procedures. Waiting for results. The best thing to do at this moment is to send her a card with, “I’m thinking of you” kind of messages. If you need her mailing address, please contact me.

Btw – for the awesome folks who have offered to bring meals (a few have coordinated with mom directly) – please make it low fat, as fat bothers mom’s guts. And *thank you* for your kindness.

Thank you for your interest and support. It takes a village to rally The Mom back to health!!! (This is our fight song!)


Mom and the Yap Trip

Mom did not go on the Yap trip. 🙂

There are friends and family who want updates on Mom’s health. Please go to the “categories” box on the left side of the screen and click on “Mom” to read just about how she is doing. (That category box shows up on my PC but not on my smartphone btw)

I will also continue to post about our recent trip to the island of Yap. If you want to follow just that, click on the “Trip of a Lifetime” category.

If you click on “Home” in the top menu bar, you will see everything I post as it is posted in a hodge podge manner.

Thanks for stopping by.
