Not everyone is on FaceBook??

 Tonight I spoke with someone who is a very special person in my life. I was reminded that there are folks out there in bloggerland that may be awaiting my next post and an update. I am on Facebook and I admit those folks get the updates sooner. So, below I am "re-posting" the last 2 updates I wrote on FB on Oct.25 & 26.

It's not pink or pretty, it does not have a color, a ribbon or a balloon. Lets just all say what it REALLY does!! And yes, for the SIXTH time it is roaring it's ugly face! The pathology report showed positive for cancer cells in the fluid from the pleural effusion. Your allowed...say it with me.....
From Oct. 26th, I wrote this the next day.
Thank you everyone for joining my "pity party" yesterday with me :) I truly appreciate all of your kind words, encouragement and prayers. My blog many years ago began with the quote " A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". This journey now brings me to the next step. Tuesday I will have a PET scan and meet with my Oncologist to discuss what's next. Your prayers for discernment and scan results are appreciated. Today is a new day!

I received so much encouragement, kindness and prayer support from so many people. I will leave those comments in the comment section as they are too special to leave out...
Thank you to my blogger friends and family for sticking with me as well. I promise to update sooner :)

Diane Heathcock Have been thinking about you since I got up this morning. Years ago an aunt of mine would tell me that when I was thinking of someone, that meant that you were suppose to be praying for them. I was also thinking Elaine~that prayer reminds me of hands that carry us through so many trials and happy times. I look at your FB and see how many people are praying for you. ~~Think of how you're being carried through these difficult times.'s ok to have as many "pity parties" as you want, our prayers will carry you through them cause we want to celebrate the "good parties"!

Robin Myers Yes it is..... Everyday is a gift and you will have many more to come.... Cancer UG -

Mike Christie Minich Every day is a gift.... every moment of every day! You are our gift. Love you.

Dawn Marie Demet I'm praying your new journey brings you ease, good news and great quality of life.

Julie Witsen Wow u call that a putty party I call it sharing being honest n allowing us to care right back love u my friend just keep doing what u do because its perfect for u this is just a bump n nothing more

Kevin Minich Love you Mom...

Cheryl Miller Konkle My friend, you are such a strong woman in all kinds of ways (spiritually, physically, mentally)! You are an amazing example to me!! I am praying for you, and your family. I was reading the comments from your friends and loved ones from yesterday. I was touched by Billy & Donise's comment, and I am going to re-state it here because it is so true: "We are going to continue to pray for our strong friend who has kicked its butt time and time again! My money is always on you!"

Molly Rene Weeks Love you! You have tons of prayers from Houston! :):)

Heidi Asiaf You have taken a lot of steps and you will keep on taking more steps. You are a fighter, keep the faith.

I am not on Facebook anymore, too vitriolic these election days! But, I wanted to tell you that anger is good--it gives you energy to fight Cancer. So I am with you in spirit as you fight the good fight.
