MRI Monday March 29

Hi everyone,

Please pray for mom's upcoming MRI. It is scheduled on March 29th around 1:00 p.m.

We have enjoyed visiting mom and others have as well. Thank you all for the sweet cards, calls, visits and prayers. Mom doesn't say much anymore but she smiles and speaks many words through her sweet eyes. She has lost feeling/movement in her right side, but that left side is very strong and she can still squeeze a hand :) Dad and GiGi (grandma) have been amazing and so strong during this time. Daily, they are devoted and care for mom. Our families strong christian faith is what continues to keep us moving forward. We also love and appreciate, Anna, our helper that comes out to be with mom and take care of the house on Tuesday's.

We have had enjoyable weekends with her....we make a lot of yummy meals and Claire and Lyla love seeing their Mimi and Poppy. We usually get to see all the aunts and uncles and great grandparents too! Since I've (Brooke) have been on maternity leave w/ Lyla...Claire and I and little Lyla get to come down more often during the week or for an earlier weekend. It's been wonderful to be here with mom and dad. She'll still give us a laugh or two every now and then :)

Claire loves fishing and riding the four wheeler w/ Poppy! This weekend she enjoyed making "arts and crafts" with some of mom's old school items. So cute...she made mom a card and beaded things for her.

Mom has had lots of visits....especially from her school buddies. Thanks girls for making her Tuesday's special!

Continue your thoughts and prayers for mom....we are thankful for friends and family like you all. Everyone has been so supportive and kind throughout this trial. We love you all! The Forrester Family/Kasbaum/Mottern's

update-march 8

Hi everyone!
Mom had chemo again today and met w/ her chemo dr. here in Tulsa. It went well and dad said that they plan to do an MRI in approx. 3 weeks. Hopefully we'll know more about the 2nd tumor then. Continue to pray for her to be healed and regain strength. She's not able to move that right side at all, but has high spirits! Thank you all for your continued love and support for our mom and our family. Love, The Forrester's, Kasbaum's & Mottern's
