Smile A Heartfelt Thank-you!

So many of you have been sharing your thoughts and prayers for my sister's recent double radical mastectomy and gall bladder surgery.

I can't thank you enough and wanted to give you an up-date that I posted in our PRAYER WARRIORS Thread in Faith Based Support.....here it is....

ANNIE'S UP-DATE ~ My sister called me a few minutes ago with good news....as good as it can be I guess. She was told before her surgery that her cancer was stage 4...today the doctor told her it was stage 2...would have been stage 1 for the size of the tumor but since it went to 2 lymph nodes it is stage 2. He took 9 lymph nodes and said she should have 17-19 but that's all he could find. I assume her facts are correct? And she understood him correctly.

He told her she would start chemo in about a month but to go ahead and do whatever she feels like doing...no reservations.

So, for now...she rests easy...it has been a long hard month of anxiety on her.

Thank you for you prayers ~ Gary

Just a reminder our PRAYER WARRIORS thread is for everyone...we will pray for anyone of any faith I will tell you that we have seen amazing results there....feel free to visit-pray-or ask for prayers at anytime! The WARRIORS there are awesome...flat out awesome
