This has been a difficult two weeks for Lyra and me, with daily radiation treatments. Monday we noticed that the lump on her left jaw, that has been around for almost 5 months and was considered to be due to TMJ, had suddenly gotten much bigger. Several doctors had looked at this and not considered it significant. The doctor that examined it today believes that it is a tumor and we have decided to start radiation on it Monday. This means that we will be continuing treatment through the holidays. I will be moving Lyra's computer this weekend so that she can use it easier. Please continue your prayers and bless you all.

David,
You know you guys are in our prayers. I am so sorry that you face such difficult challenges. May you have the courage to manager this experience and the peace of mind that restores your faith. Love to you both.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Thank you so much for the update. These are very challenging times for you both, but as you know, you are not alone! We are all praying and rooting and anything else we can do to support you and to help get you through all this crap! Damn it all to Hell! Yep, I'm angry! Yet in my heart I do know  that:

For everything
There is a season,
A perfect rhyme,
A perfect reason.

...but only God knows why

~ You gentle and beautiful lovebirds will get past this and continue your love song!

Love to you both
Linda

Hang tough there little Chipmunk!
Lyra and Dave..hold on to one another
and gather in your strength from the love you share.
Know that the prayer circle here at PiP
continues...
and always will...as long as need be.
You both are in our prayers daily.

*~*~*~*~*

Faith can move mountains,
love unbreaks the shattered glass;
believe with all your heart, my friends,
and watch the shadows pass.

Lyra and David, I have been reading your note off and on all afternoon and hardly know how to respond expect with prayer and lots of hugs and love.   Marti

May God who blessed those who came before us in history and in life,
heal Lyra, who is ill.

May the Holy One have mercy upon her.
Strengthen and heal her;
O Lord, reduce the pain and bind the wounds.
Give skill to those who help in healing.
And speedily restore her to perfect health, both spiritual and physical.


Amen.

I know that this is a very difficult time
for both of you....I won't write flowery
stuff....cause no matter how flowery I write,  
the simple fact is you both are facing a very
difficult situation,  one which
only our Lord has control of...  One which has
caused you much heartache and pain in
many ways....

I admire you both...you have guts,  you have
not quit,  you are still trying hard,  as
a husband and wife to work through this as
best as you can...  That courage is the most
beautiful gift you possess and have given
to us through your words and Lyra's poetry.

Hang in there Dave and Lyra....My hopes are
for you,  my thoughts daily of you,  and
my prayers have you in them each day...

Barry

Lyra and Dave~
I have to echo Barry as well.  He has said it
all and spoken my heart as well.
You both are now and will remain in my
thoughts and prayers.
Much love to you both.

I would like to tnank each of you for all of your caring and for your prayers...
David has moved the computer into the bedroom, but I'm still having a hard time typing  because I'm so out of practice and I am also very exhausted.
The treatments have taken away all of my energy  and have hidden my muse someowhere.
I am also still in a good deal of pain, supposedly from a back injury I received during my physical theraphy on my left leg.
I am taking a lot of pain meds which have taken away my appetite... and therefore, my energy.... but I still haven't lost any significant weight... which would normally be bad, but in this case is good!
I'll try to keep in touch as often as possible, but my muse is still away, so please parden my unpoetic poetry for now...
I know she will return eventually and we will once again make some beautiful words together.
Again,  thank you all so much for thinking of me....  I can't even begin to tell you how much I've missed you... although I bet my muse could, I've she would re-appear.
many loving chipmunk hugs to all of you

Lyra
