I want to add my thanks to Mary Kay for starting this thread and thank you to Kathy for including me on your list for prayers. I am doing quite well right now. My hemoglobin is down a little but my hematologist has said that will happen with the type of anemia I have. It is not so low that I feel tired all the time so that is good. And not low enough to treat at this time. so as long as I get it checked and watch for the symptoms of a rapid loss I am fine.
And Ritzy thanks for the idea about keeping a list by the computer I am always writing down the prayer requests on little pieces of paper and try to remember to put them in my Bible but sometimes they get misplaced and I really hate to do the generic "and bless all the people I promised to pray for" that our minister in the valley sometimes adds to the end of his list on Sunday. so now before I read my Bible and do my prayers I can come here or look at my list and be reminded. This is a wonderful thread. Thanks everybody for contributing to it. Ann
I will keep all your intentions in my prayers. I ask that you pray for Laurie. She's had breast cancer, a reconstruction that didn't take and now she's got some kind of lesion on the chest wall. Since she's had so much chemo and radiation, if it is cancer, she can't have any more. She had a PET scan last Wednesday and we're all waiting to hear the result.

I like the idea of a prayer thread. I will for one pray for those mentioned. Just so that it is not all bogged down with bad news right from the start. For those of you who knew about my friend who was in the horrible accident with the frontal lobe head injury. She came home friday. She has some memory issues. But other then believing she is 11 years old instead of 23, from time to time. She is alright the only one having a hard time adjusting to things is her fiance. When he tries to kiss her she tells him he is old. Thank God though it could have been so much worse. Rachel
Mary Kay -- I'm glad you suggested this place for the prayer requests. I also have one.
Our awesome DD (who is in the pic with me) broke her foot the end of her Junior year in high school. For those of you who know what this is she had a Jones' Fracture. Yep! Not fun -- she has since had two surgeries. She plays soccer and is such a great athlete that still got full ride athletic scholarships to college. She is now facing a third surgery. She hasn't been in any pain for 2 1/2 years and in May her foot just started killing her. The doctor is suspecting tendon and nerve damage. After several attempts at therapy, the pain is still unbearable and tomorrow we will make the decision with the doctor. She will red shirt this fall, but may never play again.
She is such a wonderful person and doesn't deserve this. But that is life. I know.
