Calling all warriors!

Okay friends. I am asking all of us to be pleading with God for His perfect (and hopefully expedient) timing for a trip to Houston to see Dr. Brown, my radiation oncologist.

I just got off the phone with his nurse. (This is the first time I have talked to her since reaching out over a week and a half ago.) I explained the whole scenario to her and asked if we could move my already scheduled MRIs (of my full spine & hip/pelvis) from late May to as soon as possible so we could potentially pursue more radiation on my spine due to the intense & continual pain I am experiencing.

She said she would see what she could do. Oh warriors, I am praying that God would provide a miraculous opening for these MRIs so we could begin the process of full healing as soon as possible. We are hold until then & this is not good.

The biggest reason I am reaching out to all of my prayer support is that I am in so much pain. I desperately need this procedure or at least a better assessment to understand why I am in so much pain. I am weary of sleepless nights and days in bed. I hate living on narcotics (and laxatives). This is not abundant living - this is surviving. I am so ready to play on the floor w Lil' A. I am ready to be present and not simply focusing in the pain. Alexa Hope has been oh-so-patient with her sick mama but it breaks my heart nonetheless.

-- We are pleading for God to provide a way to remove any remaining tumors in my body so we can pursue full-on holistic therapies.

-- We are asking for MRI openings at MDA. We are asking if it is God's will to be treated at MDA, this would happen quickly.

-- In the waiting, we are asking for wisdom in how to better manage my back pain. We are praying for His sufficient grace to cover me when the pain feels like too much.

-- We are asking for a successful, complication-free, complete removal of the tumor in my calf on Wednesday. We are praying over Dr. Kim Smith & her staff.

-- We are asking God to miraculously protect my body from the spread or growth of any more cancer so we can begin the aggressive holistic therapies that can encourage my body to heal.

-- We are asking for more of Him - more of His grace, His mercy, His power, His presence. More of Jesus. We are asking to see more of You!!

Love you warriors! I'll keep you updated with how God answers our requests.
