More Tests

Last Friday Andrea's neurology doctor at MDA printed out some MRIs for us to see how the this "chemo effect" is changing and evolving. He said it may take 18 months for it to diffuse. He also stressed again the importance of nutrition - we are what we eat! Right now the main issues they are trying to help her with are daily fatigue, headaches and shooting pains.

As we pray for each of you in your daily lives, Andrea is encouraged so much from your prayers.

Hi Andrea,

Good nutrition is so much better than chemo. I'm glad they are able to control all of this with healthy food. Thinking about you and praying for you daily.

Love, Carolyn

Andrea and J., I hope you feel stronger for the Christmas holiday. We think about you and talk about daily to our family and friends. J., you have a large family here that are standing behind you even though you can't see them. We love you all and if we can help you let us know and we'll be there within 14 hours. (Longer if I drive, and I'd also get lost) I'm out of school for 2 weeks......Love you all sooo much. Aunt Peggy and Uncle Dan.

Andrea, it is late Christmas Eve and my Son and Daughter just left for the evening which gives me a chance to drop you a thought. As I promised you my Wife and I pray for your strength and healing often. Tonight, I heard a scripture at church and wanted to share it with you. I would like to think of it as a CHRISTmas gift from me to you. Philippians 4:6/7
"Don't worry about anything but pray and ask God for everthing you need, always giving thanks for what ever you have. And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God's peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds." Andrea, trust in HIM. Think about it... the creator of the universe loves you! Wow! Trust in the fact that our Heavenly Father has a plan for your life. God Bless!!!

Merry Christmas!

Your Brother in Christ!

Andrea, This is good medicine! Nutrition is so very important for all of us and we truly are what we eat! My prayers will be for foods blessed to the absolute nurishment of your body so that the fatigue, headaches and shooting pains you are experiencing now will diminish and be gone forever. I will remember you in thought and prayer Andrea as you dine each day as I partake of my own meal for blessings of nourishment to our bodies. There is so much power in prayer and we will hold fast to the one who so graciously gives. I join with you as we look forward with great expectations in 2009! Love, mByr
