Tomorrow morning at 10:30 I will be having a MRI. I would appreciate your prayers. It is the doctors desire along with us that there will be no change from the previous scan. I honestly cannot remember when it was. I lose track after a while. Unfortunately I have so many.

My labs will be drawn at this time as well. If you remember this past cycle was an increase in my chemo dosage. I did 300 mg for four days then 180mg on the fifth day due to lack of pills in the home. Yes, prescription dilemma. I will most likely take 350mg. (already in the closet waiting) the next cycle (Friday eve) deem the doctors approval of my lab findings. My follow up doctors appointment will be on Friday at 11:30.

O the joys of cancer,

Bill and I are praying for you this morning-
Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does He withold from those whose walk is blameless.
O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in You. Psalm 84:10-12
The whole Psalm is my prayer for you this morning- as you place your trust in the one who is trustworthy- Love, Jen and Bill Peskorse

Kate, it is 9:34 and I am already praying for you this morning, as I have just read your blog. I pray right now for joy in your heart, and in Dave's, even during the anxiety of this time. May you and whomever goes with you or drives you feel calmness in spirit. I pray now that you can feel God's arms around you now, during, and after the scan. Dear Lord, we ask that You be Kate's anchor during these worrisome hours. We trust that You will do great and mighty works with this scan she is about to undergo. We thank You always for how you walk with us every day, and the strength you give to Kate and her family. Amen

Hey...prayed today for your scan...What happened w/ the "ode to mom"? (Poem honoring you from your son the aspiring author)...As far as the "joys of cancer..." I didn't know there WERE any! (Just kidding...I know you were being sarcastic [and you GO, girl!]. Praying, too, for normal labs so your therapy can go on with no hiccups. Praying for obvious scan results with no hemming and hawing (or is it hawwing...) about "possible" this or "rule-out" that...that their findings would be definitive, in agreement amongst themselves, and POSITIVE! (...meaning GOOD)...or should I say NEGATIVE (meaning NO CHANGE). Oh, blast it all: All I'm sayin' is that I hope the scan results turn out OK. There. I got my tail feathers all in a ruffle and askew over THAT verbage. WhatEVER! Grabbin' a bite to eat in the workplace, thinkin' and bloggin' 'bout YOU! Hugs! Laura Joback (not that any of you who read these comments didn't already know that...) Who else uses as many "...'s" as me? C ya!
