Hi blogger friends,

I have been remiss in my updates, but there really haven't been any to write about. Our son just left to go back to college on BAD roads (and tomorrow looks no better). I will be anxious for the next 2-3 hours until he is there. Hard to say goodbye this time. After being home for almost 4 weeks, the goodbye was more of a little rip in the heart! We had such an awesome time over the holiday.

Dan M., a 5th grade teacher, asked me to come and speak tomorrow to his 5th graders about being good visitors with older people. Dan does the greatest thing......he pairs up his kids with people from the nursing home and he takes them every week for a semester of interaction. They talk and play games and the kids take home a wealth of life lessons from these visits. Every year I do a short little stint about understanding the aging process. I am SO happy to be doing this again. It has nothing to do with CANCER!!!!!!  :) Dan's invitation was an answer to I am just sick and tired of ME and health issues. Ugh.

I will be getting my blood levels drawn tomorrow. Please pray that once again, my counts are in the normal range and we can proceed as planned with my treatment #6 next week. I try not to think ahead to all the decisions that need to be made after the last treatment in Round 1. Much will depend upon what the tumors are doing at this point. When I get ahead of myself, satan attacks my thoughts big-time and pulls me down. I have to take one step at a time and keep faithfully believing in my healing. Last night, Dick and I read my Sunday's healing Scriptures out loud felt powerful. I continue to take God at His Word in regard to His delight in healing His children, and I choose to believe He is doing it.

Jesus said, Thus far you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. John 16:24

I'm definitely praying for WONDERFUL results and only ONE stick!!!

On the other note, I grew up in a small town so we used to do something similar to the program you're speaking of and it touched my heart greatly. Many of the people I chose to visit were spouses of people in my neighborhood and they always expressed what my visits meant to the residents. It's such a blessing for all involved, I'm excited you get the chance to go out and be MARY for a day, not a patient to anyone. =)
