Clear Margins

My Report: Long day today, but good. Saw all 3 doctors at Baylor. Both surgeons thought I was healing up nicely. Dr. Grant said that I am NED – No Evidence of Disease. He cut out all detectable cancer and Margins are clear. He is making me do some arm exercises with a weight over […]


I never dreamed that I would ever have cancer. I have always been pretty healthy. This was something that I never thought about or feared that I would ever struggle with. I have prayed with many people that have suffered with cancer, some were miraculously healed, others were healed through doctors and medicine, and others […]

First Follow Up Appointment

I Went to Dallas yesterday for my first follow up appt. I was exhausted but am healing up well. Of course I told the doctor that he was torturing me. He stuck a big horse needle in me full of saline. Very uncomfortable. :/ He just laughed. (Maybe not laughed exactly, but he didn’t seem […]

Day After Surgery

Day after surgery and it wasn’t as bad as I had anticipated. The doctors and staff here have been wonderful. It’s nice to be at a Christian hospital and to be prayed for by several different people. I still have quite a bit of pain, but I’m ready to go home in the morning and […]


From John: The surgeon came out at 11:45 and said everything went well…no surprises. PTL! Thanks so much for your concern and prayers. She will be in the hospital for a day or two. The pathology report will not be completed until early next week. The findings will determine her treatment plan. Please pray that […]
