A Long Overdue Update

Well I am sorry it has been so long since I have posted on this blog. Over the summer things were just going so well, it was hard to have anything to write about. Over the past couple of months there has been quite a lot to tell, but I just haven't been able to find the time to sit down and write. Well mom hasn't been doing so great as of late. She could really use all of your prayers! Mom has been fighting jaundice for the last couple of months and the doctors can't seem to find a way to get rid of it. They believe the jaundice is being built up in moms liver because the tumors are growing and the bile has no way to get out. Recently they tried a new chemo drug, but it made mom so sick that she was hospitalized for a few days. Now mom is off that chemo and trying to recover. The doctors wanted mom to recover as much as possible so she'll be able to have a nice trip. This next week, all of the Sorenson's are going to Disneyland and on a Disney Cruise. We are hoping that mom will be able to relax and enjoy some time with the family. When we return, the doctors will re-evaluate mom's situation and see if there are anymore options they could try to keep mom with us. Mom is very exhausted and tired of being sick, but she keeps on fighting because of her love for life, her family, friends, and neighbors. Please keep praying for her and I'll let you all know how our trip went and how mom is doing once we return.
