Houston we are a go...

Jodi went into Salt Lake again today for one last MRI before the surgery. The doctor said there was no change in the tumor so everything is cleared to go. Jodi was originally scheduled for surgery in the afternoon, but was moved to first in line. She has to be at the hospital at 7:00 am, surgery is scheduled to start at 8:30 am. If everything goes accordingly the process should take between four and five hours. The doctor drew a picture for Jodi today of where her incision would be located, she told him she would really appreciate it if they left as much of her hair as possible.

My dad or myself is going to update the blog throughout the day tomorrow as we have any news during surgery. We are still grateful for every prayer and hope they continue in abundance especially during our nerve racking day tomorrow.

To get her mind off of her life changing event in the morning, Jodi along with myself and Mom went and had a day at the spa. Exfoliation, massages, steam room, and pedicures...it was unanimously decided that having this pampering could be very easy to get used to. It was nice to get away and have a fun distraction with just the girls. We missed our sister Kristi and hope that next time she can be there with us!
