Overcoming

As most of you know, Reggie has a tough battle going on himself.   He decided, before going through a complicated surgery, he wanted to go to L.A. again.   Since my schedule was pretty open, I went with him (thanks to my sister's flying privileges and his mom's hotel connections).

It was a great trip.  We went everywhere....here are a few pictures from the trip:






We got back from L.A. and all of a sudden it's spring break!  Amanda and the kids came to St. Simons to visit.









It was a great time!   Now I'm in Atlanta and just had an ultrasound of my pelvic cyst.  We've decided to keep watching it.  If it keeps growing or staying the same, we may have to remove my ovaries, which will send me into menopause with no hormone therapy.  OH NO!!!!  Anyways, I thank God it's not more cancer!

Meanwhile, Reggie had the same bad news and considering a second opinion at MD Anderson or John Hopkins.  His face, more than likely, may be paralyzed and require a feeding tube based on the news he received at Emory.   He has a very complicated surgery that lasts two days to look forward to, along with several months at a rehab center.  He desperately needs our prayers, for both strength and healing.

Thank you all for your continuous prayers and support!  My next scans are May 10th to see what progress has been made with the Tarceva.   I will probably update before then with update on Reggie though.

Psalm 107:19-21
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.   He sent forth his word and healed them, he rescued them from the grave.  Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds of men.
