Good Wednesday morning!!  Yes I am praising and thanking our almighty and awesome God for the great news yesterday!  Doing a lot of "happy dancing" here!  Dr. McClay said that my mammogram was fine.  I had an ultra sound at the same time and it showed that what the mammogram said was nothing.  He said no worries there.  My chest scan showed that I still have that spot on my lung but that it had not grown at all.  He said that there was nothing at this point to be concerned about and that he would see me again in January after I have my full body PET scan.  He told me to have a wonderful Christmas, to eat more, (I am trying) and that he would see me next year!  I gave him the biggest hug!

My prayer requests now would be that the spot in my lung will still go away, and that my upcoming brain scan, which will be in mid-December will be good. 

I have some more AWESOME news!!!!  This Friday, December 3rd is my 2 year anniversary of being considered CANCER FREE!!!  The day I got the gamma knife procedure on my brain was the day to start counting.  Can you believe that it was two years ago that I had 11 brain tumors??  Sooooo much has happened since then and I consider myself a miracle and blessed to be here celebrating life.  I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for all of family and friends.  What a day of celebrating Friday will be for all of us!  This is not only my journey but ALL of ours.  I can't thank you enough and to tell you all how much I love you!  Your generosity abounds!

I will have to share my story of what I felt while waiting in my room for Dr. McClay on tomorrow's blog.

It's December!!  My most favorite time of the year!!  Only 24 shopping days until Christmas!  I have already been listening to Christmas music.  Now it is time to start pulling out the Christmas movies too.

Here is Tyler and Ryan surrounded by a bunch of tissues after one of our 'minute to win it' games that we played at Thanksgiving.  This game consisted of who could empty a box of Kleenex one handed the fastest.  Tyler loved playing in all the discarded tissues after the game.

Tyler 46

Prayer requests:  Continued prayer for the recovery of Steve Ryan.  He has been improving a little bit everyday.  He is paralyzed so we need to keep him lifted in prayer as he deals with that.  Also for little Electra.  Her recovery is very slow too.  And for my friend Lorri Cavins who is still in the hospital.  Pray that her cell counts go up so she can come home.  Also Angel Linda's friend Sharon who is going through such a tough time right now getting started with her chemo treatments.

Matthew 1 verse 18:  These are the facts concerning the birth of Jesus Christ:  His mother, Mary,  was engaged to be married to Joseph.  But while she was still a virgin she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit.  To be continued.....

Have a wonderful day everyone!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Let's see some "Happy Dancing" today!

Christmas question:  Okay yesterday we talked about lights on the outside.  How about the lights you put on your tree?  What color are they?  Do they twinkle?  I have white lights all over my tree.
