Please pray for my cousin Pat

I just received news that my cousin Pat is probably on the final leg of her journey with pancreatic cancer.  They have taken her by ambulance to a hospice facility.  She is a wonderful born-again Christian and we know she will be with her Saviour, but we will miss her here.  Her husband of more than 50 years is there with her as is her children...both doctors.  Please say a prayer that Pat will know the Lord's presence with her and for comfort to her family.

God is control and He knows.

In Beautiful South Carolina!

Just popping in to say Hi and that I am having a wonderful time with my friend Rose in South Carolina.  We visited the Biltmore on Thursday.  It was spectacular but exhausting.  Thank you for all the prayers from you about my health during this trip.n  I think I am doing pretty well.

What the Doctor said...

Saw my oncologist today and I am again "stable".  No new tumors and some minimal shrinkage on some.  This was wonderful news!  However, there was a bit of negative.  I absolutely have to stop losing weight.  The problem is not what I am eating....it is that it doesn't stay with me.  So we are going to try a new medicine for the bowels and hope that the weight loss stops. 
I laugh at this a bit as anyone who knows me knows that I have struggled with weight all my life..  Doctors always said LOSE WEIGHT.  So now I am losing it, and they say STOP! 
I am thankful that I now can focus in on my vacay.  I will be MIA from the blog for a while, but I will be back.  My hubs is going to hold down the fort at home....that should be interesting!!

Talk to you sometime in May....be safe and enjoy LIFE!

Another CT Scan....

I really do try not to complain.  I tell the Lord that I am so thankful to be alive and I really am.  But sometimes I get soooooo tired of tests.  It seems like so quickly the time goes by and it is time for another CT scan.
So I ask for your prayers..I really want the scan to be stable.  My big girlfriend's vacay is coming and I want to be well enough to enjoy it.

The only problem I really suffer from is fatigue.  And I really never know when it is going to hit.  My hubs will say "are you done?"  and I say, "so done, stick a fork in me".

I am so surprised at how much I have grown to dislike clothes shopping.  I used to love it.  But since losing so much weight I needed everything.  And that takes time.  I am so done with that too!

Well, keep me in your thoughts Thursday and then again on Tuesday for the results.  I will let you know I promise.
