Wanted to update you on some good news today.  I finally got to talk to Dr. Neese, my primary care physician, about everything that was going on.  She immediately ordered a chest x-ray due to the breathing/swallowing difficulties I had been having.  Although, praise God for answered prayers, I have been feeling really well the past 3 days.  The chest x-ray did not show anything new and the lungs, heart, and bones all looked normal.  This also is an answered prayer.  I also saw my biopsy report for the first time and it stated that they did not find any calcifications in the 3 specimens that they did lab work on.  That sounds like good news since they had thought there were some there when they did it.  I guess calcifications can be an indication of cancer if there is no mass.  I had the two masses and suspected calcifications, but now we know that was not in the biopsies.  Dr. Neese called me back today after she got the results of the x-ray, and she states she will look at it herself on Monday just to double check everything.  I'm feeling really good today and staying positive about next weeks results.  I can feel God already working through every aspect of this situation, and I praise him for taking this load off my shoulders.  God is sooo good!  Please continue to pray for the doctors and nurses that will be taking care of us during this journey and thank God for good news for the weekend.  Love ya'll.  Shay

We don't know each other all that well but since learning about your diagnosis, I have felt it deeply in my heart to pray for you. Since I am a woman who often awakens in the middle of the night, that special time is used to pray for those whom I believe God leads me to think about...
So I just want YOU to know that I will be praying for you!

We are praying for God's healing power to touch you, for strength and courage to face the days ahead. You know we love you very much. You are such a fun-loving, encouraging person to be with.

And, You, are just the person to do it!On the days you don't feel so whoopie, then we can step up to the plate! We love you, girl!
