Met a lady tonight named Karla Dawson who has Stage 4 brain cancer. She is going at 5:00 am tomorrow morning to MD Anderson to have surgery. Please, please be in prayer for her. She will probably go into surgery around 7:00 am. She is a member of Grace Baptist Church in New Caney, TX. Please pass this prayer request on.

Thursday I went for my 3 month check up at MD Anderson. Examine went well and Dr. Soliman called me later to let me know my blood results, it was 10. Last time it was 7.8, but she said we were right on track. I was still a bit concerned as well as some of my family members because it went up instead of down. So I sent an email to Dr. Soliman to ask her about it. I will let you know more when I hear back from here.
Also, an update on Patti Bailey. She went home from the hospital and is on insulin to help her pancreas not to have to work as hard. So please continue to pray for her and her family.
On May 7 I am going to participate in the "Sprint for Life" walk at MD Anderson. It is for Ovarian Cancer awareness. My sister is coming and my niece Pam is trying to come, both of them were here to help take care of me and Scott after surgery and during some chemo. Anyone who wants to participate can go to Sprint for Life at MD Anderson and get the information and can register online. Let me know if you are interested. I want us all to wear teal and we are working on a design for the shirts now. I have some friends from work that want to walk with me. The more the better.
Again, thank you for your prayers and support.

Please be in prayer for Patti Bailey!!!
About 3 years ago she had a kidney and pancreas transplant. Last Wednesday she wasn't feeling well so they took her to the hospital. They have done some tests on her kidney and pancreas, they put her on antirejection meds. I will be starting a Care Page for her once I get more information. If you are interested in receiving her Care Page updates, please let me know. Send me your email address and I will get you on her Care Page list. I just didn't want to wait, I want my family and friends praying NOW! Always, remember if it was you or your loved one, you would want people praying NOW. So please share this prayer request with your family, friends and also your church family.
Please send cards to:
% Garth Road Baptist Church
8622 Garth Road
Baytown, TX 77521
Also, when you send a message on her Care Page or send her a card, please let her know how you heard about her and where you live. I found it interesting when I was going through cancer, to find out how people knew about me. But most of all it sure was encouraging and uplifting to know that people really care.

Hi Family and Friends,
Just wanted to let you know it is almost time for another 3 month check-up. Next Thursday, February 17th, I go to MD Anderson. I have blood work at 7:15 am and then my doctors appointment at 8:00 am. So please be in prayer for another good report. Once you have had cancer, every appointment gives you an anxious feeling.
My Lord has been so good to me and I thank Him all the time. Also, I thank all of you who have been my prayer warriors. God bless you all.
