Last Sunday night, we were preparing for hernia surgery.
This Sunday evening, we prepare our questions for the oncologist. 
I never thought I would be blogging about a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and the victim of this cruel disease would be my best friend, my sweet husband.
Everything is still a blur and we desperately hurt, 
but our God has never left our side; no, not for one single moment. We've been posting on Rob's Caringbridge site and Facebook, but my deepest thoughts are for an audience of One. 
And my great Comforter tells me...

I am the Lord your God,
I go before you now.
I stand beside you
I’m all around you
And though you feel I’m far away
I’m closer than your breath
I am with you
More than you know

I am the Lord your peace
No evil will conquer you
Steady now your heart and mind
Come into my rest
And oh, let your faith arise
And lift up your weary head
I am with you
Wherever you go

Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m everything
Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m your everything

I am your anchor, in the wind and the waves
And I am your steadfast, so don’t be afraid
Though your heart and flesh may fail you
I’m your faithful strength
And I am with you
Wherever you go

Don’t look to the right or to the left, keep your eyes on me
You will not be shaken, you will not be moved

I am the hand to hold, I am the truth, I am the way

Just come to me, come to me
Cause I’m all that you need.

A one day old & a one year old
Two celebrations of life
Distance hurts a grandmother's heart
Empty arms ache

Dear Jillian,
Tomorrow is your big day! 
Mommy, Daddy and big sister, Samantha will welcome you into the world.  You, sweet thing, are wonderful and fearfully created by your Heavenly Father and He cannot wait for everyone else to see his beautiful treasure. So sleep tight in your mommy's tummy, little one; just one more night before you put your mark on the world and forever capture our hearts. 
We love you, Jilly Bean! 
Your Gigi and Baba
