2nd UPDATE FRI. Tumur benign, drain out and 8 stitches to come out in another week. They think nerve affected will get better soon and then bottom lip will hopefully get back in place The nerve had to be raised to get to the tumur thanks for all your prayers. God is so good to me!

_here we go again my friends.When I had the P.E.T. Scan 2 weeks ago. They found another tumur in my neck and throat. Surgery will be next week on the 9th. It will be done as out patient at the hospital. I will come home with drain tubes in my neck. It is still small and they do not think the cancer will be in it yet but said it had to come out NOW.. I'M really thankful they are watching me so closely.please continue with your prayers for me. The leg is still not healed internally. Lots of edema and having to wear a compression stocking on it. Hugs to you all. Lillian. Home with drain. Can only swallow liquid or cracker soakeed with liq.. Hooray for ice cream and jello. PAIN like I HAVE never had through anything. Very strong pain pills needed this time.. Daughters taking times staying with me. Can not talk and extremely crooked grin.Hope it doesn't stay that way. Love you all !

Wonderful news that it is benign. Praying for that pesky nerve to heal and for pain to cease. Yes, God is good to us all. Even should he answer no, which he didn't this time!

I love you Ms Lillian and would wish that we were closer. I'd stay with you a spell and my DH could make you some homemade ice cream. He only make vanilla, chocolate, stawberry and banana, the last being my favorite. He usually makes 4 1/2 gallons at a time, so you'd be set up for plenty 'meals'! Hope the pain leaves soon.......

Sorry that I haven't seen your post Miss Lillian, but more sorry that you are having to deal with yet another surgery. I am happy that you are being closely monitored though and pray that the tumors are simply benign. I will definitely be praying tomorrow on the 9th for you.

Lillian, hard news to hear for you and for us too. I'm so grateful you keep us updated so we know what to pray for. And your leg and neck are certainly a priority. Rest in His arms and be at peace. He is in control and loves you so much more than we can comprehend.

Lillian...I had a salivary gland removed abot 15 yrs ago and had to have a drain in my neck for 5 days....I had a lopsided smile for awhile as my one nerve had to heal...the drain was not painful, just an annoyance...I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers...much love!

I now have that lop-sided grin. Hope it goes away soon. Thanks for telling me this. You give me hope

Oh Ms. Lillian. Not what I wanted to hear. But that is not up to us. The Lord has been watching over you and He is not about to stop now. I never did like the saying "He never gives us more than we can handle." When I hear that, I always picture the Lord up in Heaven looking down at me saying "oh, I think DebB could handle a little bit more." and zap, I get hit with something else. hehe. But our Savior is merciful and caring and I just can not see him doing that. I prefer to turn that saying around to "Nothing happens that the Lord and I can not get through together." So Ms. Lillian, we are going to add the cuties into that mixture also, because we will be stormin' the gates of heaven in prayer. Hugs.

I think it won't matter there and we won't remember! But, yes, now we wonder why. Lillian, I am so sorry there are more medical appointments and procedures in your future. Be sure not to wear loud green, cause I don't want to mistake you for Frankenstein with those tubes coming from your neck! I know what a positive thinker you are and the close relationship you have with the Lord, so I'm thinking it's just one more thing to get through. Love ya, girl.
