WELL,HELLO-----------------------

Hello everyone.You have no idea how
wonderful it is to be able to sit here and
blog again.I have just about forgotten how.
Seriously.
I am on my way again to a terrific comback.
Thanks to our sweet Lord.I was sick for weeks
after the chemo .I could not feel better.After a
couple of trips to the dr and one to the e.r I had
given up.They thought it was too much oxygen or
the
chemo.
Thank God for my little daughter.She was not
willin to give up.She called my lung dr and took me in.
I was really sck.getting only half the oxygen i needed.
The tank i had with me doesn't flow without being inhaled
into.I remember little,but I do remember telling her i was too tired
to puff.
I can only imagine how she was feeling.In Dallas traffic
with a sick mom.
We made it to the dr.He quickly stepped in.
I was in the er and icu for 8 days.I only remember very little.
But this is the good part.I made it and--------------------this dr has started
doing the operation I had.It was in Houston,remember?It was a lungreduction.
This is where people like me who have copd or emphazemia
can have another chance at life.Ev eryone but Houston turned me down.
And Hoston would've,but they found the cancer and because they had nothing to loose they went in to get the cancer.Can you believe the cancer is gone?Gone!!I asked the Lord to reach in and get it and throw it away.He did.
Well,i have broken all kinds of records and am still breaking them.At the hospital my dr was interducing me to some more drs telling them how remarkable i am.
We all know I am not remarkable,it is God that has done it all.
I am a puny little thing.But i can see where God is using me to give more
people some more time here.
My dr also put me on a machine at night.I look just like a mosquito.ha
And i hated it at first.Now,I love it.It helps me breathing muscles rest at night
to save energy for the day time.The air that comes out of it is so creamy and rich.I know that sounds crazy.
I know my blog has been full of sad stuff so long and i will probaly only read yalls from now on.But i am so happy to be back among you all.I want to thank you all for standing by me and praying for me.God is here and he never lets us down.

Update on Ann

Hi Everyone,

Ann had to be rushed to the hospital several days ago due to complications with her COPD. We're hoping she'll be able to come home in the next day or two.
She has been very ill from the radiation/chemo treatments and has not been up to blogging. Her body is weak and she's had a hard time breathing. But the good news ...the last test showed NO CANCER!! Now we pray they can get her COPD under control so that her body can recover from the treatment.
She loves you all!! I know she and her family would appreciate any prayers.

Laura
