I had news from Lyra this morning, here it is............

Thank you for setting up that thread for me. I just found it. I really appreciate all of the love and the thoughts and the prayers and tomorrow, I will respond to them. I am too tired right now. We have spent the entire day in Ann Arbor, but it has been very profitable. In the morning we met with the radiation oncologist and I also had my radiation simulation. He thinks that he will be able to shrink the tumour with radiation. This afternoon, we met with the chemo oncologist and I am going to have some chemo which will be a radiation sensitizer...it will make the tumour more sensitive to the radiation. The radiation will be every week day for about 7 weeks, so I won't have too much time for online poetry, but I will try to write some during that time, if I can find the energy. Radiation will make me very tired and nauseated. The chemo is not supposed to make me as sick as last time, because it isn't a very large dose. He also said that it would probably not make me lose my hair, but might just thin it a bit.

As you can see she really appreciates all the positive thoughts and energy you are sending her. Please continue to pray for her she really is a very very special lady, and I’m proud to call her my friend.


Love and warm stuff
As always

Marsha,
Thanks for letting me know how things are going. It makes it seem less frightening, knowing that people are taking steps. I'll keep praying.

PRAYERS FOR YOU DAILY LYRA
Angels

Angels unaware, walking side by side each
day always showing us the way.

  Never leave my side, God has sent you to me, to
be my companion , my guide.

Give to me this day, the strength I need to see
me through, is all I pray.

Everything that's bright, you bring to me from
God above, He is my light.

Love from Him, is always here to set me free.

Shielded by His love, protector in the night,
forever to eternity.


Floria

Best of luck with the new treatment Lyra. My prayers are with you all the way. Be better soon sweet lady.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?

Nancy, Duncan, Tracey and Smartchick....
thank you so very much for your prayers...
My hair thanks you also because chipmunks aren't supposed to be bald.

I promise to do my best to get well.  Knowing that all of you are praying for me will really help.  My husband always tells me to keep my tail high.  I will fight this and I intend to win because I am a devil of a chipmunk!
I love you all

Lyra ... you have a wonderful attitude, and that is half the battle in itself. Keep your tail high, and take care.

I'll be praying for you.

Best wishes,
