That I tell you the most recent events in the Because Nice Matters family.
My beautiful sister was married in June, and was hopeful that it wouldn't be too long before she could announce that she was having a baby.
She's wanted a baby since she was 12.
Last month she announced that she was expecting, and she was thrilled.
She has high hopes for twins, and when she started to show earlier than normal, those hopes went even higher.
Last Friday Tiffany called my mom in tears and said that she thought she was miscarrying.
My sister called her doctor and he said, "Don't give up on the baby yet. Come in on Monday and we'll see what's going on."
Tiffany had her appointment yesterday.
What started out as a fetus, developed into a fast growing tumor in Tiff's uterus.
The tumor, if left untreated, could spread throughout her body in a short matter of time.
She is going in for surgery at 6:00 a.m. to remove the tumor and to clean out her uterus.
They took x-rays today to see if the tumor has spread to her other organs.
Tiff won't know the results until she goes in for surgery.
They won't know if the tumor is cancerous until they do the surgery.
A normal pregnant woman has HCG levels in the thousands; Tiffany's are close to one million.
If the HCG levels don't even out soon, Tiffany will have to do chemotherapy.
Tiffany is looking at the bright side.
She said to her doctor today, "You mean there is a reason I'm fat? Besides just being fat?"
He laughed and told her that had she waited even two more months, she would have looked 9 months pregnant.
Tiffany is tough as nails, seriously. And I know that she will come out of this okay.
If I were a person who talks to God...
And I am...
I might be asking for a small break for a little while...
The Because Nice Matters family has gone through more than their fair share the last several months...
It was said once of my great-great-grandma that she was made of sterling stuff...
God's probably just testing to see if we're made of the same.
I love you little sister, and I'll be a phone call away if you need me.
