There's not going to be a round two of this...

My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer March 27, 2007 and went to be with Jesus on May 27, 2009. My mom never smoked a day in her life and died from second hand cigarette smoke...so sad.

My hubby seems to have some breathing/hacking coughing issues so they did a chest xray which showed some sort of spot on his lung - thankfully his new doctor is very proactive and decided to do a CT scan of the chest also - they called this morning and there are actually 3 nodules (2 upper left & 1 lower left) all under 5mm (a pencil eraser is 6mm so these are tiny) at this point there is no way to biopsy without cutting him completely open so the protocol is to wait 6 months...the medical field recommends another scan in a year but we're so thankful for our new doctor to be so caring and proactive that they are going to do it at the beginning of December to have us "good news" by Christmas.

I'm telling the devil that we're NOT going to have a round two of all of this...we are NOT going to walk in fear concerning any of this no matter what we've been though or what this looks like in the natural! Get thee behind me satan...you have NO authority here in our household! My husband is healthy, healed and fine in Jesus name...We will walk by faith and NOT by sight of 3 tiny nodules...my God is bigger than whatever is thrown at us!!!

A busy week...I can't wait to get some rest!!!

Well - this past week has been an UNBLEIVEABLY busy one for us. It started last Friday night with Larry's niece Lauren's wedding...

Brothers - 'Gary & Larry' - can you tell???


Momma June & Larry


Larry & his niece/Goddaughter/namesake in German 'Lauren'


Lauren & Paul...aren't they adorable!?!

We were suppose to go to Relay for Life after Lauren's wedding but we never made it, we had a funeral at 10am Saturday morning for a friends husband - an unfortunate accident really...so sad.

Church Sunday morning, packing and prayer Sunday night and off to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on Monday morning to attend a Minister, Leadership & Helps conference.
We had 3 days of classes and much fun...


We came home Thursday night and left Friday morning with Heather to attend another Friday night (never have I heard of a wedding being on a Friday night and we've now attended 2 of them in the last 2 weekends...weird!) wedding in Quincy, IL for our friend Matt Miller from the S.H.A.R.C band.

Heather with the S.H.A.R.C band. Congrats Matt & Brecket!

We topped off the weekend with a day in Hannibal, MO. We had a great time...touring Mark Twains boyhood home, the Museum gallery, the Rockcliffe Mansion, Mark Twain Riverboat cruise, the Mark Twain Cave and finishing off the day...swimming!!!












I look forward to having lunch at Darnell Dam tomorrow and then going home to get some rest from this busy week!!!
