A Call For Prayer

I haven't posted in a long time, but this news warrants a post, and plea.

About a year and half ago, July 2007, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time, they suggested that she have a double masectomy. After much thought, she decided, yes, let's do that, get it all. She went through chemo, radiation, losing both breasts and her hair. She finished chemo by February 2008. Every six months she is to get a body scan to make sure they got it all. The first scan was good news, no signs of cancer. The second scan was not such good news, they found a small spot near her neck area, but she only needed radiation, not the dreaded chemo again. We could deal with that.

Then a month ago she got a rash in her chest area, the doctor gave her antibiotics but it just wouldn't go away. So they did a biopsy. This is where is gets hard, and where I get scared. The biopsy came back positive for cancer cells. A new body scan shows what we all feared, the cancer is back. It is back in her chest, which means it is stage 3. Although it is not in her organs, its on the move. The prognosis is now that her condition is chronic. She will need to have chemo again, and radiation, and the worst yet, they think she will be dealing with these two things for the rest of her life. They hope to get her back into remission with this new round of treatment, but the reality is it has spread, and its no longer just breast cancer. She hasn't given me lots of details because she knows me, I will quit my job and move closer to her if I feel it's warranted. She doesn't want me to do that, but I can't imagine not taking advantage of every moment if this something that is going to take her from me.

I am scared, I love my mom, and depend on her a great deal. She has been there for me in ways and times when I didn't deserve it. She has never falterred in her love for me, or her belief in me. She is the only person in this world who loves me for me no matter what I do or how I screw up, and I am terrified of losing her.

I just can't lose her, so I am asking you friends to pray, pray like you have never prayed before, for my mom, who is far to young to be facing this horrible disease.

Thank you...
Lisa
Jeney came to my house last night, it was fun. She was armed with some awesome photos of my room when we were 14, most noticable was the glaring photo of Ricky Schroeder on my wall...AWESOME

IKEA help

What do you do when you have to take apart something you got from Ikea to move it, only you no longer have the special tool they gave you to assemble it?

My Mom

I have an awesome Mom. I can always count on my mom to come through for me when I need her. She is a good friend and a wonderful mother. Never has she not been there for me when I needed her for anything, whether it be money or just someone to talk to. In fact she is the only person I know I can turn to at any time and know she will do everything in her power to make it happen, whatever I need.

I love my mom.

SAD

David Cook's brother dies
David Cook has lost his 36-year-old brother Adam to a brain tumor, David announced over the weekend.
Following is the report from Usmagazine.com

David Cook's 36-year-old brother Adam has died, the 'American Idol' winner told the crowd at the 12th Annual Race for Hope 5K event in Washington, D.C, Usmagazine.com reports.
"I actually lost my brother yesterday to a brain tumor, and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else right now," the singer said at the fundraiser for brain cancer research. The elder Cook battled the tumor for 11 years.
"I lost one today, but I gained 9,000, and I will be here every year that they will have me," he added.
Cook was the honorary chairman for the event, and his team raised more than $97,000.
'American Idol' judges have rallied around last season's winner, offering their sympathy and condolences.
"Adam Cook was a part of our extended 'American Idol' family who supported his brother wholeheartedly, even through his own fight. My heart goes out not only to David, but his family as well," Paula Abdul told PEOPLE in a statement.
"I was incredibly saddened to hear the news. I met Adam Cook a few times at 'American Idol.' He was an incredible guy, and right now my thoughts are with David and his family," Simon Cowell added.

--------------------------

David recently canceled one of his tour concert stops for a "personal" matter. Cook's brother was an inspiration to him during his run on A-I a year ago. And anyone who watched any of those shows and saw the interaction between David and his brother can realize what David went through the past year.
Like Simon, our thoughts and prayers are with David and his family now.

Jeney reminded me of my love of kermit

Its not easy being green.
