Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Another MRI, results tomorrow I guess

Just continuing to try to figure it all out. The pain is not going away. I didn't even make it to church this weekend, and for me, that's heartbreaking. My family and I were able to take the kids to see Kung Fu Panada on Saturday, so that was a big plus.

But the rest of the weekend was spent mostly in bed. Today, because of new paralysis in my arm, I had a long MRI I had to lie through. But I was so drugged up, it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I do pray we can get this worked out a little by the weekend, so I can see my visiting relatives and attend the Angel Benefit.

John 9:31
If anyone is a worshiper of God, and does His will, He hears him.

"Abraham didn't focus on his own impotence and say, "It's hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child." Nor did he survey Sarah's decades of infertility and give up. He didn't tiptoe around God's promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That's why it is said, "Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right." But it's not just Abraham; it's also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God."

Hold on, Cari! This is quite a ride you're on but thankfully, you know Who's at the wheel. :) No back seat driving, now...just sit back and let the One who knows The Way, is The Truth, and gives us Life, get you to your destination safely.

You cannot understand how your positive attitude, your fight, your honest and your faith are changing me.
