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,
