For those who pray

First of all, THANK YOU! I know that every prayer counts. Every prayer is recorded in Heaven. Every prayer is heard. And every prayer will be answered according to our collective faith and the good will of the Lord.

Today as I hopped on my treadmill and RAN (yay!) and marvelled at my cardiovascular endurance despite having had a couple months' interruption in regular cardio training, and ALSO marvelled at the absence of headache pain compared to this past weekend, I felt strongly that good things...healing things...were happening. This whole treatment regimen has been so amazingly tolerable, and I am so high functioning through this process, and it's a very good thing. I think it's a miraculous thing. I hope that it is only the beginning of marvels, wonders, miracles, and healings. Prayer has really been helping me - physically, emotionally, and spiritually - and it has also helped my family, so I thank each of you who prays.

Secondly, I'd like to request prayers for one more thing. Tomorrow I go in for an MRI scan. I know that it is for the purpose of directing the "boost" - the final concentrated radiation zap for a specific target area - and not for the purpose of gauging treatment effectiveness at this point. However, it is a somewhat nervous thing. They could see something that looks like progression. They could see something that is suspicious and unknown because of the amount of radiation inflammation, necrosis, and other things going on in my head right now. And maybe they could see a clean scan. Whatever. But because this is a nervous time, I would really appreciate some prayers to help me have an "accurate and reassuring scan" - whatever that might be.

My husband was diagnosed in Dec '05 with gmb level 4, inoperable. While my love, prayers, and support are constantly with him I feel he is taking a walk I cannot begin to walk with him. He elected to not seek radiation or chemo. The strength of those with this diagnosis and prognosis cannot be understated.

My prayers and warm thoughts are with you and yours always. I have found so inspirational and honest the thoughts you have chosen to share about your journey.
