"...not the news we wanted, but we will continue to fight this.." what my sweet Montie said after the doctor told us the report.

Monday morning my surgery was halted so the doctors could see by camera (scope)... They found that the cancer is too far advanced to be able to remove it all without chemo first. So they put in port and will start an agressive chemo regimine very soon.

my faithful friend Beth wanted me to post this too...love you Beth!

Surgery Scheduled...

Monday ~ February 27th ~ 9 am

a million emotions ...trying to stay focused on today...

Isaiah 43:1-3

"But now, this is what the LORD says -- he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you: I have summoned you by name; you are mine"."

Isaiah 41:15-17

"I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them."

The Lord is my Shepherd...

Yesterday we received confirmation that there are 2 spots of cancer showing up on the PET scan... cervical and liver...

My 'case' will be presented by my doctor to a 'tumor board' on Thusday morning -Feb. 9th- this is a panel of specialized doctors to gather together to find the best plan for taking care of this....

We all are managing time...sometimes very strong... other times questioning why and crying for answers.....................Thank you for your prayers!

"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You annoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Psalm 23
