Still Alive and kicking

Friends....

Thank you so very much for all the comments, prayers, emails, thoughts and consideration that you have given Sean and I in this very dark few weeks of my life. I am very blessed to have all of my family and friends praying for my sister...I have been so busy with her and Dr.'s and now starting 12's again, I don't know which way is up...

But I just wanted you all to know that I deeply and sincerely appreciate all the out pours of comfort and prayer...prayer is what is going to get her through this, and it will be the only thing...We go to the doctor again tomorrow, well your today, to get the results of all the tests she had last week, about the cancer and how far it has gone. The eye surgery went well, but still to early to tell with the water on her brain still and it being swollen worse then it was when she went in the first time...and then the 7th and 8th she has more appt. to re check her eyes and decide what to do from there, and her brain tumor at the moment is inactive, so that is good news for now...bless her heart, just all these things at once and she is handeling things better then me...

Again friends thank you so much for taking the time to read what I have to say, and for keeping my sis in your prayers...we need all we can get in the prayer department...Hopefully I will have better news to give in a day or two...God does work...and I do believe he will here!!

Thank You

cheers to new beginnings,
Irene

  3. Still praying for JoEllen! I'm glad that her tumor is not agressive. I'm going to pray that it shrinks to NOTHING!

  4. I'm sorry you and your family are going through so much. I can honestly say I believe it was the power of prayer that helped my mother get through Cancer twice so I definitely know it works. I'm praying for JoEllen and I'm hoping you are doing ok too. I can only imagine how tough this is. Hang in there. *lots of love and prayers and hugs*
