"MD Anderson Bound"

I had decided that today was the day I really wanted to hear from MD Anderson.  I got on their website and found a place to request an appointment and decided it wouldn't hurt to fill out the information (just in case my paper work didn't make it to them).  I was able to put in my name, address, phone number and was looking for the box to check for my diagnosis, when my phone rang with a number from Houston, Texas.  I was so excited to hear that the lady on the other end was from MD Anderson.  She asked if it was a good time for her to call and I told her it couldn't be a more perfect time.  I posted on my blog yesterday how I feel God is telling me "He's got this" and He reminded me of that in a big way with me trying to take over this morning to push everything through more quickly.  I am so thankful to say my appointment is next Tuesday, May 21st.  We are so excited for this opportunity that God has given us and are trusting Him for all the details.  I must remind myself when I become inpatient, that He really does have everything under control and His timing is always perfect.  

I had both chemo drugs today for treatment.  My friend LaDonna went with me.  She has a lot on her plate and has 4 kids, but wanted to take time out of her busy schedule to spend with me.  Thank you Ladonna for being a blessing to me today.   Everything went very smoothly and so thankful that I have friends that want to go and spend time with me.  God continues to bless me immeasurably more than I could ever imagine.

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. I have been following your blog and praying for you for a few months now. Kelly's Corners blog asked for prayer for you awhile back & I went to read what you were going through. My sister is a stage IV ovarian cancer survivor of 6 years now and I am now into my 5th year from aggressive breast cancer. I am very happy you are going to MD Anderson and wanted to say something, but it is so hard to know if you should. I am glad God is directing your path. I want to share something that showed up on my facebook page today and I ask myself also why doctors don't mention this more. My oncologist said that there was no clinical data that actually proved nutrition to make a difference. I was in tears watching this. I hope you don't mind me sending this to you. I am a grandma and you can email me if you ever want to at cherlilly12@yahoo.com Here is the video. You might need to copy & paste it?? I'm not too good with computers? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhhCdrYcqf4&feature=player_embedded

  2. Yay for going to MD Anderson! The Lord used them to treat my mom 6 years ago and she's been in remission since. They are AMAZING! Good for you for getting the best care available. My mom would be more than happy to chat with you - even if you need places to eat while in the Houston area. Email me and I can send you her number. They still go every year for her check up. The Lord has created many amazing doctors that work there. I'm so, so excited to hear this. I'll be praying next Tuesday goes well!!
