I'm Gonna Need Some Cute HAIR!!!

Well, the verdict is in and after much testing, it looks like chemo will be the drug of choice. It's not the path I would have chosen for myself, but I can't even begin to explain the peace I have. I know that your prayers that have gone up on my behalf have been a sweet aroma to our Father and they are going to be answered in a glorious display of His splendor. And I can't wait!

In the meantime, I have a prescription for a "cranial prosthesis"! Isn't that the funniest thing you've ever heard?!!! I will be looking for me some cute HAIR this week!

Thanks for letting me share my journey...what great therapy! You have been such a blessing to me and your faithfulness to pray inspires me so. Many of you I have never even met and it's as though we have been friends for years. God is such a creative genius! Isn't it fascinating that we are made in His image? Oh, I love Him so.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Blog Buddies! And what a whirlwind it has been! Yesterday, we did 5 back-to-back Christmas Eve services that were incredible. It was a light-show spectacular and one of the most awe-inspiring worship settings BAF has ever created. And what was really cool was the display of God's glory that filled the sanctuary as each and every team member used their gifts and talents to help create an experience that truly magnified the Lord. It is absolutely amazing to watch God use His people in such creative ways. He is genius!

I pray that you all have had a very blessed Christmas! And I want you to know how grateful I am to each of you who have prayed for me and with me in these last several weeks. God has been faithful and your prayers have definitely been felt. Even with major surgery, God has allowed me to be a part of all the wonderful things I had hoped not to miss. I will keep you posted, but for now, please know that you are some of the sweetest "flakes" in my snowglobe and I treasure each and every one of you!

Good News!

Hey Blog Buddies!

Thank you, thank you for praying! Lots of good news! Lymph nodes are definitely clear, margins of the tumor are clean and I get to go on my trip to LA this Wednesday!! Woohoo!

We still have a few hurdles to jump. The tumor was a little larger than they anticipated, so I meet with an oncologist next week and we'll discuss what the treatment will be. Since I've already hogged quite a bit of your prayer time, I hate to request more. But you've been so faithful and your prayers have definitely been felt. So if I could ask another favor, I would love it if you would join with me in agreement that God would guide and direct each and every doctor on my team...that every decision they make would be ordained by Him. And that way, no matter what the treatment plan looks like, I will know that God Himself fashioned it for my good and His purposes. My job will only be to follow the One who loves me so.

Love you guys!
