Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Biopsy Results Are In

So, I decide to see if the grandbabies can meet us at the indoor McDonald's playground knowing I won't be able to meet them out much after the chemo/radiation begins (at least not anywhere where germs are rampant as they tend to be in the winter.) 

Gastro doctor called while in the madness of the playground so I stepped outside.
"Hi Michelle.   Dr. Curtis is out of town.  I'm his partner and calling to tell you your results.  I know he probably told you what the chances were."

Me:  "Yes, he told me 99.9% he thought it was cancer.   But I'm sure you called to tell me that it was the .1% not."

Doctor:  "Well, that was hopeful (cheerful voice) and I wish it was true but no, I'm afraid you do have cancer........."

What a hard job that most be.   To be the doctor who has to tell folks that they have cancer.   Hoping I made his one call a little easier today by a little humor.   I know this didn't catch God by surprise so no need to fear.  Appreciate all the prayers and show of support.   Pray tomorrow that they find 1) I'm totally healed and the cancer has miraculously disappeared and/or 2) it's only in my colon. 

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.  Psalm 31:24

We are praying for you and the family Michelle. You are a quite a miraculous person so I expect nothing less than a miracle young lady! As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure that CAT scan is going to have a sign where that mass used to be that reads "Sorry, wrong house!" LOVE you.
