Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

We are definately thankful for the blessings the Lord has given our family this year...with my generally good health being one of the biggest!

It has not been an easy year....many changes....but we have each other and the Lord.

I want to say Thank you to you, my blogging friends and prayer partners.  I hope you have a wonderful week getting ready for and enjoying Thanksgiving.  We will be celebrating with our family also!

Wow, Wow, WOW!

Do you have your cup of tea?  Sit down...this could take a minute.

I flew into Greenville on Wednesday.  I have been having some drippy nose issues, but thought it was just the cold, because, it is COLD here!  On Sunday I went to church and out to dinner.  On the way back to Ro's, I noticed a lump on the left side of my face by my ear.  I panicked.  Oh no, I cannot have a tumor there, I am on vacay, and I don't want to get stuck in a hospital.

I should mention before I go any further that my oncologist had told me that my scan shown stable. 

I immediately called my oncologist at HOME no less!  He said, there is no way he could imagine that it was a tumor because of my CA 125 count.  I said, I don't understand.  He told me that my last CA count was down 5000, points!  5000!  I absolutely could NOT believe it!  This is a miracle to me.  Obviously, the avastin is helping me.

Ok, so back to this lump.  He asked me where it was, what it felt like and he believed it was a plugged salivary gland.  He put me on an antibiotic, and it is all cleared up.  Whew!!  That took a few hairs off my hair I tell ya!

Anyways, we are praising the Lord for His goodness to me.  Rejoice in the Good Days!!
