Here is the note I received in my email today:
Sorry I'm not writing you individually but just wanted to let you all know that I could use your prayers. Last Tuesday I went to the doctor as I was having some slight bleeding and bad stomach cramps. The doctor examined me and found a grapefruit sized cyst on my ovary and although the cyst has liquid in it, it also has a solid mass that he's concerned about. I asked him what he thinks it is and he said it may be ovarian cancer. That day I got a mammogram he requested and then Friday I had a 2 hour MRI on my pelvis and abdomen. He said the cyst is pressing on my bladder and back so I'm pretty uncomfortable. So I've been sitting here for days waiting for the call from the doctor whether it's cancer or not. Needless to say I'm scared to death. Either way I have to have a full hysterectomy, either by him (the GYN) or a oncologist (cancer surgeon). I haven't called you guys cause I'm sleeping a lot of the day and worrying the rest of the day. I'd appreciate it you guys could remember me in your prayers. I love you all and will let you know as soon as I hear something. Thanks.
I am asking you today, to please say a prayer and pass along this request - I am going to write to Barb and tell her that I have done this on her behalf. I don't remember how old Barb is, but I remember her to be about 50 so she is still quite young and as you can see, also very scared.
Thank you all in advance,

**Sat, 11/27, was NOT a good day, lol.
But the leftovers are gone now! I hate throwing away food and it gave me a day of 'tapering off' so it too is good.
I finished up the slivers of pies (just like drugs, you can't stop cold-turkey, sorry for the pun) and the homemade sweet-potato casserole.
Today the desserts are gone or frozen and the fruits and veggies are back on my plate! The only pies left are Ray's - I do not put him on my foodplan, that choice has to be his.
Bring out the scales!! Time to weigh and measure portions again!!
Up another .2 but this too is ok! I am actually still within my Maintenance Range of 5 lbs - with .8 to spare!!
OMG, I felt a small belly this morning!
**Sunday, 11/28, the scale was kinder to me! 117.7 today! WooHoo!!
(11/25-117, 11/26-118.9, 11/27-119.1)

I started yesterday at 117 - this morning I was 118.9 - you know what? I think that is awesome and I thanked My Lord for my bounty yesterday!
What is 2 lbs in the grand scheme of things? I saw, I conquered, I ate, lol, about 3500 calories near as I can tell.
Today I return to my normal eating habits again. That 2 lbs is temporary!
I will NOT crash diet!! Neither should you! I will eat my normal daily foods and try to incorporate more freggies and fish - they are natural calorie burners.
We cannot undo what was done yesterday - nor would you really want to, I am hoping you had fun the same as I did - we just "pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again!"
P.S. After consuming 3500+ calories yesterday, mostly sweets - my life is going to go on - I sure hope yours will too!
Catch you on the "flip-flop"
