   Balogreene  Prayers for PianoGirl. I am late to this, but her daughter Stephanie died July 22 of cancer, it is very hard on her. And, Piano Girl, if you read this, I live in Fairfax Cty, we aren't that far apart, if you need. L can get us in touch.

   MeiDei  Enjoyed the visit there, thanks for the link. You gals are on my prayer list, you will get through this - one way or another - easy for some, a bit different for others but you will prevail. Just remember: ALL negativity is like noxious weeds that choke & prevent you from blooming where you're planted! Live, Love. Laugh!

   Hikergal  Prayers continuing! Every 2 weeks I take my blood out for a spin(aphereris/platelet donation ) I sit in the chair for a few hours and watch silly movies and say prayers. I pray some one closer to you is also donating so if you need them they are available,I pray for healing and health for the recipient of my platelets,I watch funny movies in the off chance some of the happiness bleeds thru ; ) Mostly I pray for the day donors are no longer needed.I give prayers of thanksgiving that I have the time and health to do this.
I step out in Faith each time thankful I can give and pray my little bit helps.

   MeiDei  Thank you Hikergal for filling a void - from your lips to God's ears. May your thoughtfulness be multiplied back to you full measure, pressed down and overflowing.

   Wrightwinger  Side effects are rough for chemo. After all, it is a kind of poison that affects cancer cells more than, but not exclusively, regular cells. The good news is that if successful, the hair comes back! Still praying for you!

   Gerty  So good to hear from you, Miss Mags!

I have always disliked being told I was "brave" for suffering the trivialities of growing up---from physical to emotional pain. So you can imagine my surprise that after all these years, I have come to realize what true bravery looks like. It is you, going through this crisis, keeping in touch with those who admire you and posting this picture of yourself...these are perfect examples of bravery!

It is an honor to know you, Miss Mags. May God bless you and the Holy Spirit give you extra strength!

   Magdalene  Oh Gerty. Not brave, not strong, just doing what I know I have to do to even have a chance of beating this. It's my honor to be included in this Connection with people like you who will pray for me and lift me up before the Throne of Grace.
In my travels through this I have come to be administrator of a thread on a breast cancer forum with others who are starting chemo in July. I have such a burden for these women, some of them in their 20's and 30's, many with small children and jobs to have to go to, some of them even having recurrences of the cancer at that young age! If you think of me, lift them up to the Lord as well, they so need His comfort and peace.
You all are awesome. I'm just doing what I have to do. Thank you, Connection.

   Gerty  I have not heard anything either, but I am interested in knowing!

If she reads this, I hope she is just resting and reserving her strength for the time when she is ready to let us know.

Prayers still with you, Miss Mags.

   Gerty  Lord, I try to have hope for the salvation of our Country. It has been increasingly difficult to do. There is so much "tearing down" taking place.

Can anyone deny that the present president has made a mockery of the Office to which he was elected?
To what end is the breakdown of our Country's boarders?
Pink slips to military LEADERS--even those on the battlefields? Who determined which of those officers were to be fired? And what about the Generals who have recently been "uncovered" for all kinds of charges--and let go?

These are just some of the present day perils, Lord. Please give us the strength and wisdom we need to get through these times. I know we will--eventually. Good will always triumph over evil!

   Straitpath  Sit back and watch it happen. It is like watching the rerun of a football game where you thought your team would lose and then your team scores three touchdowns in the last ten minutes. You know who is going to win as you watch the rerun. God is in charge. Scriptures are being fulfilled before our eyes. It isn't fun and we must do our best, but good is going to triumph.

   Straitpath  There is at least an oral traditional prophecy in the Mormon Church that at one point our Constitution will hang by a thread and the Elders of Israel will save it. I take the Elders of Israel to be righteous men of whatever religion. I am not too upset by what is happening in the country because I recognize it is in God's hands. In the meantime I financially support good office candidates and appreciate knowing from you who is worthy of such support.

   Magdalene  I expect to be absent for a while as I start chemo Tuesday. I will also have to have radiation and 5-10 years of hormone suppression therapy. After all that I still have a 40%+ chance of recurrence in ten years.(With surgery alone it was 83% )
I really do appreciate the prayers and I'm trying to remain optimistic.

   MeiDei  You & my best male friend will be starting the same journey on Tuesday...my prayers will be with you both through the coming months.

Keep positive, smile & remember there are so many of us who survived stage 3 & stage 4 well. Listen to what your doctors say - but well know Who has the ultimate word! : )
It's not going to be as bad as you may be anticpating - a couple of days off between chemo sessions - pamper thyself!

Your experience will not be wasted, think of it this way - as a gardener you have to plant the seed, water, supply sunshine before you can harvest. You are the seed, you need to keep hydrated (! ), bask in His Light - the fruit you will bear will be the seed to share with someone that will follow in your footsteps in some future time & place.

As a good friend reminded me: He didn't teach us to swim to let us drown! Keep kickin' gal, you'll be floating with the rest of us "thrivers".

   Magdalene  MeiDei, what you said above about the experience not being wasted, is almost word for word what my oncologist said to me Tuesday. It is already coming to pass. Thank you so much for your faithful encouragement.
TXknitter, you brought tears to my eyes that you've shared my concerns with your prayer warrior pals and praying for me. I am so humbled by the sheer volume of prayer coverage that blesses me daily. Gerty, Gram, WW, and all the rest of the Connection who are bringing me to the foot of the Throne, my eternal thanks to you, be assured I feel each prayer you send up. I am so blessed, so blessed.
P.S. So far no major side effects! Thank you Lord!
