Prayer Requests - October 14, 2011

Just wanted to share some prayer requests with all you prayer warriors. All are cancer patients:

Leah Adams - waiting to find out what Stage she is in. (liver & lymph nodes)
Bonnie Bryan - in hospital, has a couple of fractures in back along with cancer
Joanne Nelson - ovarian cancer - in hospital right now, in pain and fluid still in lungs and abdomen.
Owen Ivey - haven't heard a recent update, but continue to pray for him.

Again, it seems like you hear of another cancer patient almost daily. I am sure you folks out there know someone with cancer or has gone through cancer. When you pray for these folks, also pray for their family, friends and medical staff. The support group is very important. The greatest support is our "GREAT PHYSICIAN". I don't know anyone can go through cancer without the Lord. Let's share HIM whenever possible.

4 Month Check Up - October 6, 2011

Went this morning for my 4 month check up. First of all we went to work at 5:30 am to do our first run, then it was off to downtown Houston to MD Anderson. My blood work was scheduled for 9:30 am and that is exactly when we arrived. We don't get in from our 1st run until 8:30-8:45 am but we did make it on time. Then my doctor's appointment was at 10:30 am. Not much of a wait today. Everything went good, one stick for blood and then nothing new at the doctor's office. Dr. Soliman said everything looks good. I got called later with my CA-125 results which was 10.9. I love getting good news. Praise the Lord! What a "Great Physician" I have!!!!

While at MD Anderson I picked up some information about the 2011 Online Quilt Auction (Oct. 26-Nov. 9, 2011) you can go to It is raising awareness and research funds for gynecologic cancers. Check it out.

Some symptoms you can look for in Ovarian Cancer: 1)Bloating, 2)Pelvic or abdominal pain, 3) Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and 4) Urinary symptoms (urgency and frequency).

Endometrial(Uterine)Cancer Symptoms: 1) Bleeding after menopause (experienced by over 90% of endometrial patients), 2) Irregular vaginal bleeding before menopause, 3) Unusual vaginal discharge, 4) Change in bowel or bladder habits, 5) Pain in the pelvic area, and 6) Pain during sexual intercourse.

Again, please get a simple blood test CA-125, it can save your life. Cancer is an awful thing to experience and it is awful for your family and friends.

Thank you for all your prayers and support.
