"The Battle Continues"

Thank you for so many prayers, cards, flowers and your thoughtfulness during this long span of fighting in my life.   I can tell you Tony is my hero.  He has been by my side every moment except the time he's been with his mom.  She has been moved into a hospital in Gravette and she's not responding and is basically laying in a bed.  Please continue to pray for Tony and the grace and strength he needs everyday.

My strength is still gone and I continue to have nausea and vomiting everyday.  We went to the doctor today and the plan is for me to stay on IV infusion saline drip twice a day at home for at least 10 days.    I will be having a CT scan next week and also see the doctor on Friday.  They have taken me off the clinical trial while my body tries to recuperate.  My throat is beginning to heal but I have to chew and swallow very slowly.  I basically have no energy or appetite and I am now dealing with severe back spasm pain as well. My  lack of communication through text or phone calls will continue for awhile.  I know many want to text, call or visit but for now my mind and body need rest.  I still believe in God's healing power and I know He can do amazing things.  He's already blessed me with an incredible life.  The battle has already been won for me so know matter what these next few days, weeks, months or years God has ordained for me, I will choose to honor Him and give Him the glory for the great things He is doing.  The tapestry of my life may be confusing and hard to understand right now but I know when God is done with my life here on this earth, we'll all see His plan is always perfect.  

Thank you for your outpouring of love and prayers!

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

  4. He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
    That shadows a dry, thirsty land,
    He hideth my soul in the depths of His love
    And covers me there with His hand. - Fanny Crosby

    What a comfort - He's protecting you and loving you.

  5. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
    John 14:27

  6. When my Mom was going thru her battle with ovarian cancer her words were "God will either heal me here on earth or I will be healed when I enter heaven, either way it's a win/win situation for me." You have the same strength, grace and courage. Praying for you!!!
