Good news so far from Mayo!!

FANTASTIC Valentine's Day News so far for Carole!!

We received the news so far my Mom has passed all preliminary protocol stuff [heart, blood thinning, lungs, etc] SO FAR, There is nothing eliminating her right now from being a candidate. On Weds, the selection committee will decide once & for all as well as once they receive cytology biopsy results.

Her doctor will call her Thurs or Fri. If she is a candidate, she will be bumped to top of list due to the fact it is a tumor. Also, she will become a national figure because of the rare nature of the cancer!

We have our flight booked for Saturday, so we will be going home to await the results. Depending on what they reveal will determine how soon we return for her to begin aggressive radiation & chemo.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers, keep them coming!!

This is the best news. I am sooo happy and relieved. I was so concerned, due to Carole's age that she would not be a candidate. This is the Best Valentine's Gift for my friends.
I Love You Cindy and Carole have a safe flight home. My prayers are unceasing.

"With Christ all things are possible"

Life without Christ is a defeated life that ends in tragedy, a hopeless venture into outer darkness.

With Christ all things are possible and through Christ we can do all things.

Christ is the answer, the key to salvation and the power of God that purges us from all our sins.

With Christ all things are possible and without Christ life is one continuous series of failures and defeats.

Christ is the answer and Christ is the victory that overcomes the world.

All power in Heaven and the earth is given to Jesus Christ and with Christ all things are possible and nothing is impossible.

My hope is in Christ and my salvation has been sealed by His blood and my redemption by His death on the cross of Calvary.

Let us than put our whole trust in Jesus Christ for our salvation and our redemption. Amen.
