Excellent points.  But since it takes 5-7 days for confirmation anyway, why schedule more testing until they know for sure?

Wishful thinking?

Don't know, but the times that I've had a bad mammogram, I left the radiologist's office with an appointment with the surgeon. When a friend's breast cancer was discovered, (she got her mammograms at Thompson Cancer Center) they did a needle biopsy on her before she even left the office from having her mammogram. I switched to TCC because it's a "one-stop" place, everything except the surgery itself is done there. The surgery is done at the hospital across the street.

I would like to request prayer for me, as well as my boyfriend.

As I've mentioned before, I have been laid off twice since January 2009. I am currently working as a waitress at the local Waffle House. This allows me to have gas money an grocery money, as well as some bill money; but it is not enough (I'm making about 10.00/hour less than my last job). I have just created a Linkedin account in the hopes that it may catch someone's eye. Keep my job search in your prayers, please.

Also, my boyfriend is a plumber. Business has picked up some in the last 6 months; but he has done something to his back. He has not been able to work in a month, and he has no insurance. I am worried to death about him. He has had back problems off and on for years; but nothing this bad and this prolonged. He's been to the ER twice and a doctor once; but no one wants to give him an X-Ray or MRI. Please pray that he gets some relief from his pain.

I fully believe that God puts us through trials for a reason; and I am leaning heavily on that belief right now. I know He has a purpose; and that purpose may never be revealed to me, but it's getting harder and harder to keep my spirits up.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers.

I've mentioned this before, but when I was going through a really horrible time, several years ago, I opened up an email that was one of those "chain letter" things which I never respond to, but for some reason I scrolled all the way to the very bottom of the page - past the sender's name and info.

Underneath the sender's info was a line in italics....

If God brings you to it, He will get you through it.

I have no idea why I scrolled through that email on that particular day, but I am so grateful that I did.

Have faith...

in the meantime, I will send prayers for you and yours.

I'd like prayers for Monte Rice (uncle by marriage). As some of you may remember, Monte has been fighting Prostrate cancer for a few years. It came back earlier this year and after trying different treatments, it's not showing any signs of remission, and is spreading.

I don't think he has long, but the family isn't talking about it.

This is more for his spirit, family and friends.

Thanks.

The mother of a childhood friend was taken to the hospital today.  When her family found her, she wasn't breathing.

I don't have any new information.  She's in the ICU at the hospital down the street.

I got a cryptic message on Facebook that doesn't make any sense.  I don't think they expect her to survive. :(

My friend Josh is in the hospital. He's only in his early 20s but he has an enlarged heart and needs a transplant. He's been in the hospital for about 18-20 hours now. We're all kind of bummed out at the college right now.

Just an update, Josh may have been bitten by a bug while on a missions trip to Honduras that is causing all this. He's on morphine now and watching a game on TV.
