OT: request for positive thoughts

Hi all-

Please send positive thoughts and prayers our way. For those who don't know, DH Bob was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer (mets to lymph nodes) last November and I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer in March (mets to liver and bladder). We are both undergoing chemo treatment and doing our best to rise above.

A special request this week:

Bob has finished his chemo and will have a CT scan next week to check on efficacy of chemo. Please pray for a positive outcome.

I will undergo a CT scan on Wed to check efficacy of my most recent chemo (Doxil) mid-stream. I will also undergo an MRI of my brain on Friday. I was sent to a neurologist because my chemo is affecting me with lopsided neuropathy (more pronounced in my dominant right hand). All was 100% normal and the MRI is "just to be sure." The cancer I have rarely metastasizes to the brain, but this test is scary.

That's about it, folks. Positive thoughts and prayers for healing, peace of mind and so forth are very welcome.

Thanks to all,

-Louise

Louise you have all of my support. Waiting for the results can be very worrisome. In the mean time we can pray for the best.

Louise, you and Bob have my strongest prayers and you are part of a prayer chain from my sister in law's church in California. The waiting is such a draining experience, wish it could go faster.

Louise, thinking of you and Bob and sending lots of positive energy your way.

You have always been about the most positive person I know, even in the face of such serious issues. If admiration helps at all, you should be running marathons soon, with Bob running right beside you.
