Hello to all my dear friends! Last week I had new scans on my chest and brain AND got the results today, all but one spot has gotten SMALLER!!!! This is the first time I have had news like this! I am elated and feel so happy, my Mom (if one more person asks if she is my sister I will smack them, lol) was so happy and when she told my Dad he was all smiles! He was not a good man to me when I was growing up or even well after that but since cancer entered my life I got more hugs (that I forced) and nicer words, no love ones yet. My youngest brother begs me for things he can do for me. I am down to 81.4 pounds now but she is giving me a pill that should make me hungry, she has offered to give me a prescription for marijuana but I keep telling her it is not legal in our state, lol. Mom and I didn't even plan the color we had on and Dad is hesitant to even put his arm around me but he is coming around. Anyway, just wanted to pass on my GOOD news for a change! HUGS to you all! This pic has my youngest brother in it too.

I am so grateful to our dear Lord for making you better. We trust that all the spots will get smaller again and again and disappear altogether. I wish you well and healthy in this coming New Year. May God bless you and all your loved ones.

Debra, I am so happy you have gotten some good news for a change! Our prayers will be ongoing for our Lord to eradicate this disease from your body and rebuild your strength! Speaking of your dad, my father could never say, "I love you", but I knew as I was growing up, he did. It was small things he did, and the look in his eyes. He was a very stern, strict father, that somehow felt it was not "manly" to show affection. Perhaps his own upbringing, and hardships made him that way. He could not even say, "thank you", as if it would indicate a weakness in him. I know he loved me, and I miss him very much. The picture of your dad smiling with his arms around you, was one of definite love for you, regardless of any discomfort he may have in in expressing affection!!
This is a great picture, too, with your brother and mom! Your family love you dearly, including your dad, cause all their expressions say "LOVE" so loudly! Just listen, my dear! Love surrounds you, love is cheering for you, and even from all us Cuties!!
Hugs, Angel

Dear Deb: Awesome news. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.
Merry Christmas and may 2014 be a year for you to regain your health and hopefully your Dad will show you how he feels, but too afraid to. I also have a father like yours, so I know how you feel.
