This Monday, June 24...I am going to have another biopsy, so I probably won't be here for a couple of days early next week.

I'm not too worried about the surgery, itself...but I am terribly worried about the results of the pathology report....which I probably won't have until 7 or 8 days later.

Right now, I really and truly believe that the cancer is gone, and although my intuition has been right on target all along, and I knew that the radiation had killed it....as they could find no trace of it last time...
but the biopsy, will dig deeper into my bladder and I am so afraid that she will find some cells in there.
If she finds an actual tumor, I will know right away, that the cancer has either returned or has never completely gone....but I am positive that there is no tumor there....

Just the same.....I am still scared and would feel very reassured if I knew that my miracle-making friends here at Passions would please say a few prayers for me...

I will be back here as soon as I feel up to sitting at my computer...

Thanks so much.....

~ loving hugs to all

You know I am with you all the way on this, and will be phoning you and/or David to see how things are going.  Being scared is an okay feeling too, as sometimes it allows us to reach out to friends who want to be there and will be, and trust me - we are!

PDV...thanks so very much.  My surgery is going to be on Monday morning so I still have some time left to be here until then.  I just didn't want to post this at the last minute because I always forget things if I leave them to the last minute.

Karilea...thank you so much for your prayers and your support...they mean so very much to me.

Martie...thank you, thank you, thank you...
for all of your prayers and thoughts

Michael...thanks for the miracle making support....My surgery will be at 7:30 AM on Monday, so please aim your miracle making for that time....poor David is going to have to get me there by 6:15 AM and I haven't done mornings in over 3 years....I guess he'll have to carry me there in my jammies.

Nancy...thanks so much for your show of support.  I hope that your sister is doing better...I have been praying for her return to health.

Sharon...thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers....now I pray that you would get thyself back here and do some more poetry.
My surgery is at 7:30 AM...I'm supposed to be there at 6:15.  David will have to carry me out to the car...but at least we're staying in Ann Arbor on Sunday night...if we were coming all the way from home, we would have to leave at 4:30 AM.
The only good part is that I will get home sooner...and also, being the first surgery of the day, I'm not likely to run into too many delays this time.  If you'd like to call....the best time would probably be Monday evening....by then I might even be able to speak to you.

Larry....yes....thank goodness you are back.
I have missed you and Sharon, terribly. And thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts...I am so scared that my intuition is off, but so far...it hasn't been.

Thanks so much for your prayers, Duncan...now go back and get some sleep...

Titia...thank you so much for your prayers.  I think that God will be very impressed at how all of these prayers come from all over the world....
If there is no cancer this time...it will be probable that I will be able to go to Florida in Sept....but I will never say that there is a 100% chance until the day we actually leave, because this is such a scary disease that it could come back at any time

Nan...thanks so much for your prayers and for that adorable graphic...Where do you get those?
I just love the concept of all of us joining hands in prayer...I think we can do wonders that way, and this website with it's miracle making has made a believer out of me.

Marti...thanks for the prayers and thoughts...and I will be sure to let everyone know...good or bad, but I hope that its good....of course, I may not know about the bad until a week later...

thank you everyone for all of your prayers...I feel so much love emimating from this site and I think thats why the prayers work.

Thank you everyone, for all of your thoughts and your prayers.....
I had the biopsy today and my urologist couldn't find any evidence of a tumor anywhere in or around my bladder....
But I still have to wait for the pathology report, which we will get sometime next week.......
I am in some pain now...but as soon as I feel better, I promise, I will be back here again....tail held high.

I just said a prayer for you to have the strength and patience it takes in a situation like this, as I now know first hand exactly how you're feeling.  Today was my fathers funeral and everybodies prayers helped my family and I get through it ok and keep the positive attitude required.  Thank you so much for your prayers in my time of need, I promise I will keep you in mine   {{{{{{{{{HugZ}}}}}}}}}}

Strive for higher levels, if they seem out of reach... Grow, and they will get closer.

My condolences to you and your family, BJ...
I have definitely been in that place and so I know very much how you feel too.
My surgery on Monday went extremely well, and they couldn't find any trace of tumor anywhere, but I still have to wait for the pathology report which will take about a week.
My doctor was amazed because she originally told me that this kind of cancer was refractory to all treatments.
This wasn't supposed to happen....but I am now more of a believer in prayer than I ever was before, and I thank you very much for yours because I will still need them....and I will continue mine for you and yours.
Here is a link to the poem I posted to announce the results of my surgery.
She Couldn't Find It!!!

Thanks so much for caring, Martie...
I haven't been here because my little cold turned into a little pneumonia...
I coughed so hard for about 5 days that my ribs rattled and all of my muscles are sore, but now I'm on an antibiotic and back on my way to feeling better.  Still coughing but not nearly as bad as before.

~ thanks for being concerned hugs
