Hello everyone! Yesterday I had a PET scan to restage my cancer. I'll post the results as soon as I find out. Next week I'll find out the results of my stomach biopsy. I'm suppose to make an appointment to see the radiation oncologist to start my next go of radiation therapy.

Earlier this month I spent a week up in Pennsylvania at my mom-in-law's house. I flew up, without David, so we could spend the week shopping in the amish towns. She lives close to Lancaster. We had a wonderful time! It is so beautiful up there ~ totally different than Texas. The weather was nice and cool which was a nice break from our 100 degree heat down here. The amish are amazing people. I never get tired of looking at their farms, their absolutely beautiful children and the horse/buggies they ride in. It's a totally different world than ours. I saw one amish guy on roller blades which was a surprise. We spent one night in Intercourse, PA which is right in the middle of amish and mennonite country. Mennonites are similar to Amish but not as strict in their lifestyles. I bought lots of goodies and lots of yummy smelling candles.

My cousin Brooke had her baby on mother's day. I haven't had a chance to go see her yet. I need to take photos of her and post one on my blog.

I FINALLY got David to transfer his medical care over to MD Anderson. He has an appointment tomorrow for a MRI and will see a doctor next week. I plan to go to both with him. Please pray that the MRI shows no new tumor growth. (For those who don't know: David had a golf ball size tumor removed in 2000 and more tumor removed in 2005. He went through radiation after the last surgery in 2005). I'll keep everyone updated on his status as well. Just keep praying for him please!!
