DEVASTATING NEWS!!!

I just learned today that my very best friend in all the world has cancer/lymphoma. Doctors discovered a mass behind her pancreas but were staying cautiously optimistic until the results of the biopsy came back, which was this afternoon. I was with her when the doctor came into the room. Of course, her family was there as well. We still don't know if this is stage 1, 2, 3, or 4 cancer, though, as they still have to do a bone marrow test and await the results of a chest x-ray to see if it has spread. Please join me in praying for my precious friend, Debbie Stinehart. No, she is not a member of SL. I've tried to talk her into joining, so maybe she will at some point. Anyway, I thought I would pass onto you a link at which you can get periodic updates if you like. Not totally sure I will be able to figure out how to make the link work on this blog, but I'm going to give it my best shot. If I'm successful, it would be wonderful if you would drop her a note of encouragement in her guest book. Thanks, everybody, and I love you all! Here is the link--I hope: CARING BRIDGE

Dear Shar,
I am so very sorry about your precious friend, and I am lifting her up in prayer. Thank you for letting us know, so we can all be in prayer. The Caring Bridge site is wonderful - - I've followed two people on there who've battled cancer. It's nice to be able to leave an encouraging note and let them know you're praying for them. ~ I'm sure your friend is thankful to have YOU, since you're such an upbeat, positive person. ~ Love, Patti Jo (1 Peter 5:7)

So sorry to hear about your friend. My husband and I will keep her and her family (and friends) in our prayers.

I'm going over to Caring Bridge right now.
