Last September I posted an entry requesting prayer for David the son of friends Ruth &  George and for my co-worker Susan.   http://journals.aol.com/lsfp1960/LindasWorld/entries/2006/09/20/prayer-request/1165.   I got a call from Susan today, she's been out on a medical leave this month, trying to recover from the radiation treatments she had for the lymphoma.  Anyway, last Friday she went for a post radiation treatment P.E.T. scan.  Her appointment to find out the results was today.  She called me from her cell phone to tell me that other than a very small spot in her left breast there was no sign of the cancer on this recent scan.   They plan to do an ultrasound on that spot, since it may just be dense tissue.  She was so happy and she wanted me to let everyone know that prayed for her..how thankful she is for your good thought and prayers.     And David, is about done with his chemo treatments. He is really a fighter and has such a positive attitude. He's blessed to have a very supportive family.  He's of course suffering some of the side effects of the chemo but has also been able to go to work from time to time. Even his work place has been supportive.  Like I said ...he's fighter.  Please continue to remember these two dear people.  Susan still has the suspicious spot in her left breast and David has far to go to be declared in remission.  

It was 55 degrees here today, but like I told Jeannette in the U.K......that doesn't mean a thing. We could have a blizzard on Saturday.  You just never know what the weather will be in the great Pacific Northwest.  Everyday can be a weather surprise !  

Until next time..........Linda

Your concern for your friends is wonderful and I hope the best for them and will keep them in my prayers.    It was in the single digits last night here in S. Illinois and only in the mid 20's at noon time.    I have been reading on my back on a board and cushion as I can not concentrate any other way with my severe stenosis or narrowing of the lumbar spine and arthritis of the entire spine.     I have been working on a pen and ink for a J-land friend for his personal book of poems several hours every few days.    It must be beautiful where you live in Washington State with so much forest and mountains and coast.    I am fortunate that I live in one of the most beautiful area's of my state with fantastic rock formations and lots of forest area as well as lakes.    Much of the rest of the state is flat and treeless.     Thanks for visiting my journal.    mark
