Good morning to all of you. Praying for Barbara, Lennon, and others who are suffering with cancer.

A very good friend of mine found out last week that her FIL has lung cancer and they have given him six months. This was the same day she had a CT scan for a small spot on her own lung. She is to see a specialist in the next couple of weeks. Please pray with me that the spot on Linda's lung turns out to be nothing of significance.

I am back on the maintenance chemo drug Revlimed. I take a pill for three weeks and then I get a week off. So far the only side effects that have come back is the fatigue and some insomnia. That is a really weird combo of side effects, but that's what they are! I take pills to combat both of those which make daily working at my full time job hard sometimes. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for me.

Hi everyone, just want to give you and update about Barbara, the doctors her from the hospital and sent her home on Sunday..there is nothing more they can do for her..

She is so weak and frail.. her voice is very raspy..it is a matter of time...how long the doctors don't really know, I told her she had to start eating to get some strength but she told me that she could not although she can swallow it won't go down..she said that they told her she was suffering from dysphagia..an eating disorder..she said that she might even agree to have a feeding tube put in so she can get some nutrition...her blood count is down again...so that is all I know for now...

I will keep you updated..please continue to pray and again thank you for all your support and your prayers..

Wondering how to pray since it's been a while.......any updates? My friend, Linda, is still waiting for an appointment with a pulmenologist. It is scheduled for March 10. Maybe she will find out something then. Please pray that the spot on her lung is NOT cancer!

My daughter, Stacey, lost her battle with cancer this morning. She was my scrapbooking partner and best friend. What a talent!! Fly with the angels now, baby.

I'm so sorry to hear that Lennon isn't walking or talking anymore.

I'm still hanging in here. Went up to the big cancer center back the end of March for my pre transplant stuff. Had a biopsy. Was supposed to get admitted the 6th of april to start the transplant process. Got a call that I had 42% blast cells in my marrow. No transplant at that %.

So they have me doing 4 rounds of a drug called Vidaza. Will have another biopsy after that and see where I am.

Thank you Karen. My biopsy is scheduled for the 13th of July. Hopefully the blast cell percentage in my marrow will be low enough to move on with the transplant process.

Hev, you are coming close to your check date. I am lifting you in prayer tonight!

I have checkups in Omaha on July 25. Last check showed still in remission so they took me off of the maintenance chemo. I've felt better since then!

Thanks Deb and Gramma Jo.

Gramma Jo I hope your check goes well too. Glad you are feeling better. I have been having a lot of nausea. Had to beg for some IV meds when I got my bloodwork yeterday. The zofran and compazine pills aren't cutting it. They have sent off to their in house pharmacy to see about getting me a patch for it. I am hoping my insurance will pay for it as it is very expensive.
