I'm aware (and so grateful) that the dates for meals are all full and Sarah mentioned that others still wanted to bring a meal.  I added two more dates, but please know that if I have to have treatment (i.e. chemo) after the surgery we will still need meals then.  I will try to post a message here if I add more dates, but as things get moving and treatment is determined please feel free to check Ekklesion again (and again), I'm sure there will be many more opportunities!  Again, thank you so much, I am so overwhelmed by your response, just knowing that people want to help has been an amazing relief.  It's just one less thing I have to worry about right now!

We are continuing to plug along.  I'm finding it very wierd to go about my normal daily activities knowing that there is this terrible disease, something fully capable of killing a person (not me though ;), growing inside of my body.  If I hadn't had the MRI I would be going about my daily activities just as I am today, completely unaware of the poison growing inside of me.  It's a very surreal feeling that we just need time to wrap our minds around.

Prayer Request (in addition to previous requests):
God continues to reveal himself to us as we walk this journey and that we may be able to reveal Him to others.

Wow. Just... wow. So surreal. It's good to see the strength God is showing you through your attitude!

I was so saddened to hear the news about your diagnosis but also at peace because I know your faith and the support of your friends and family will get you through! My own friend was diagnosed with BC two years ago and God allowed me the resources that I was able to move in with her to help care for her and her children. So I know there is a long difficult journey ahead but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. Questions or a favor, I'm up for anything! My prayers are with you, your family, and all the others around you!
