Back Home/ Need a prayer

Well we just made it back from our State Weekend and while it was a good weekend we did lose a game which cost us the opportunity to play in the finals. I must admit the anticipation of losing was far worse than the actual loss. The team that beat us is from Brentwood. We know some of their players and parents personally and so while we were devistated to lose it was nice to see them win. After winning 4 state championships in a row we definatley had a big bulls-eye on our backs but the Brentwood team and their parents, who had plenty to celebrate were very gracious. Our coach, whom I adore, looked at our boys when it became apparent that we were going to lose and said "We win with class and we will lose with class" Our boys handled it very well and I was very proud of them. The team that beat us went onto play in the championship game and lost to Knoxville futbol Club, another team of kids and parents that we like so while I am personally sad for my kiddo and our team I am happy for those that won. Overall it was a good weekend, experiencing several emotions and a little head-ache from it all.

On the surgery front. I went for my pre-op Friday and I am currently sick with conjestion etc. I have to get to the doctor tomorrow and then call the surgeon to let them know what the doctor says and then they will decide whether or not to proceed or change the surgery date. Please pray that the surgery can stay as scheduled. I need to go ahead and get this mass out and move on with the holidays. For those of you that asked, there is still a small percentage that I may have cancer. I did not interpret the biopsy results correctly the first time. They will not know for sure until the pathologist reads it after they remove it, however, I feel confident that everything will be just fine and my doctor is very positive as well.
Hope you have a great week!

Sorry about the loss, but sounds like your son's team knows about losing with class. I didn't realize you lived in TN (me too) Middle TN to be exact. Wow small world.
