To my friends,

I don't know HOW to say a proper thank you for the prayers you have prayed for me. I KNOW what prayer involves, first of all you have to actually stop and THINK about me, then you have to take your valuable time to ask God to help me, and to heal my body. I want to say thank you for that. I can feel your prayers, especially during the discouraging times when I'm feeling sick and wishing I didn't have cancer. When that happens I picture YOU asking God to help me. And I feel better!

I have presently had 6 treatments of Chemo. For me, that has involved a very sick tummy, a mouth so sore that you cannot brush your teeth (hope I don't lose them all) ha! ha! I do have a mouthwash called "swish and spit" (ha!) that helps some. At least it makes my mouth "feel clean" and that's good! Ha! Ha! So far my hair is "hanging on for dear life". In fact I took a real chance and colored it.... Red, of course! Ha!

My first 6 treatments I had done at the Eisenhower, Lucy Curci Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. I was away from home for almost a month. During that time I want to thank John & Terry for providing us the use of their beautiful desert home during that time. I will always love them for doing that for Roe and me at the time when we needed it the most.

Roe and I arrived back in Charlotte a couple of days ago to two happy little dogs, Tuppie and Muffie. The little "doggie kisses" and those wagging tails made everything "all better"! Ha!

Today I met my new doctor that will be taking care of me. He took blood and has put me on antibiotics as my white blood cell count is so low. I guess they don't want to take any chances of me getting an infection. Please add WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT TO YOUR PRAYERS FOR ME. I need MORE of them! Ha!

I keep repeating the verse in the Bible that says:

Fear thou not for I AM WITH THEE,
Yea, I WILL UPHOLD thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10

I trust the God I have served for 50 years, I trust Him with ME. Did you know that YOU can TRUST God with YOU? What PEACE that brings!

My next chemo starts this Wednesday, the 5th. I thank you for your continued prayer in my behalf. God bless you my friends. You are LOVED by ME!
