    Good Thoughts Needed For A Friend

    Some of the oldies may remember our Friend Deborah Williams...For you newer Gals, Deborah fought the beast and held our hands as we shared the same journey several years back. She now is facing another challenge. She has been dealing with stomach problems for quite some time, and recently went for several tests to try and determine the cause. One of the blood test (chromogranin) seems to indicate possible trouble in the intestional tract. She will be having a colonscopy on the 11th and sure could use some powerful support and prayers from all of us here.

    I have lit a candle for her and invite others to do the same. Deborah, you are in our hearts...Please let us know how you are doing.

    Blessings.
    Rachael

    Thanks Rachael for your post concerning Deborah. Hoping for good results from this upcoming test and Deborah if you read this please know we'll be thinking of you.

    And I meet with my surgeon Friday 3/11 hoping to schedule surgery to relieve the back problem causing my leg numbness and extreme pain. I just suffered through 2 weeks in Fort Myers Florida (it was difficult, but I persevered) haha, will keep you all advised.

    Will send good thoughts and lots of prayers that all goes well for you on Friday, and that your back troubles are soon a thing of the past! (I'd say "behind you," but that is redundant, right? )

    Many blessings always!
