Thanks to everyone who has been praying and sending positive vibes, THATS FIRST....
Now, the dr. called and I am thankful to God it is not the tumor, the mri showed
no change in that, but what it and the xrays did show are new bone spurs and
acceleration of Arthritis in the herniated discs and around them.
This I also have so we know we can deal with this, and the dr. put him on a round of steroids to get the inflamation down and so we have to find a way to deal with it for
him because he does not like to take a lot of meds, but will do so just to get the
pain level down where he can deal with it.
Thanks are inadequate words for the immediate rush of support from you guys, which
has helped me stay calm and focused. You know I am here for you as well.....
Thank you so much from our hearts,
Darlene and David

I have to laugh here, because I am, as promised writing an update, but he got
his x-rays and MRI's this morning, and so far that is all we know. David feels
like we may not hear anything from the dr. until tomorrow.
Thanks to each of you for posting and praying. As soon as I get a report and
we determine what needs done, I will be emailing each of you, as well as
posting a blog....
And, last but not least, this would be the week when we have yahoo problems
and I have gotten no Sparkmail in two days.
Blessings on each of you,

As some of you know, David has had some health issues, the majority of which are
connected to his service in Vietnam.
He mentioned to me Monday night the base of his neck was causing him discomfort,
which is a huge admission for him, because he never mentioned pain even when he
had his open heart surgery. He wanted to wait til August when he is due to see his
primary care, I called his neurosurgeon in Birmingham and also the primary, and we
saw the primary this morning. He sent him for an MRI tomorrow morning. When it
comes to his health I don't mess around.
The dr. does not think his brain tumor is causing this problem, rather the two herniated
discs in his neck, hence the MRI so we will know which specialist he will need to see.
We have also consulted with a neck and spine specialist who sent him for pain blocks
previously, not much help, and who said it was up to him when or if he chose to have
surgery on his neck. The worst would be a possible paraplegic state, which for him
would be terrible since he can't sit still, and/or not being able to speak. The titanium
in his neck would probably keep him from turning his head, so he would be limited in
his activities, like driving a vehicle or riding his bike.
I am asking for prayer for him because any time he has to undergo a procedure, with his
health issues, anethesia is dangerous.
I will keep you posted as to what is going on. It may very well turn out to be something
we can find a simple solution to..................which is my prayer.
Thanks so much,
Thanks everyone. My support here is priceless to me.....I'll post tomorrow after he has
his MRI. I don't know how long it will take the dr. to get the results but, I will post

I know some of you know, and some don't, but I have a mass on my Thyroid also
which is being monitored. I had the nasty dye test, with the requisite magnet
stuck in my face, and was scared to pieces that thing would fall on me.....so just
knowing God healed Connie meant so much that I cried and cried.
You who prayed with me, believed with me, and are my friends, even though I
cannot reach out and touch you with my hand, we can touch hearts. When I thought
I had the "c" curse a year ago, I had no one here except David, and my Spark friends.
You will never know how much your support meant to me then or now. Your loving
kindness gave me courage, but having someone to talk with and know you were praying
made me face my problem with a smile.
Connie has asked me to thank each one who prayed, and believed. So thank you
dear friends from both of us.
Love n' Hugs,

I had asked for prayer for my dear friend, who is also my pastors' wife. She had been
diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, so I was really concerned for her. She has had health
issues for years.
When we went up to visit in June, we went to Wednesday night services and we had
done the talking and hugging thing, and everyone wanted us to move back there, and
as we were getting ready to leave, David went over to her and bent down(she was in
a wheelchair due to a foot surgery) and said something and she began to cry and they
hugged for a good bit and he said God told him to tell her something, only her.
She had tests that were coming up for the cancer and the dr. was very concerned. We
began to pray and asked a lot of other folks to pray for her......
TODAY HER TEST RESULTS CAME BACK CLEAN.....she does not have to even go back to
her cancer dr. for 8 months. She is cancer free...........
The message David gave her was this: Your healing is at hand. It was.
Thanks to each one of you who have prayed for her. God listens.............
