Update on Grizelda

I appreciate so much those of you who have been praying for me. I believe in prayer and I have felt those prayers sustaining me. Thank you. Today I had an MRI and Friday the doctor will tell me if Grizelda is still hanging around or if she accepted my invitation to leave. I don’t mean to be inhospitable, but I think she’s overstayed her welcome and will be more than happy if she’s left.

I didn’t mention it here before because I looked so ugly I couldn’t bear to think about it let alone write about it, but we did the skin cancer treatments on my face during December and I am about back to normal now. The scabbing only lasted a week this time and the big red splotches are now disappearing, but the doctor told me we’d need to do it again in about September. I’m not looking forward to that but maybe next time it won’t be as bad. Maybe I should talk the doctor into waiting until October and I can do it for Halloween. I’d fit right in!

Thanks again for your prayers. I’ll let you know what I find out on Friday.

I didn't know you were going through all of that again. I'm sorry, Sherrie! Is the skin cancer related to Grizelda? And was that the only treatment you've had or was this the second time your face has been treated? It seems like you mentioned it before. I hope and pray that Grizelda is gone for good! :)

You will be in my thoughts and prayers. The waiting is the hardest part sometimes. I can relate to the skin cancer having just had a "spot" surgically removed last week; my third in just over three years.

I have a male friend who had similar skin cancer treatments, but he didn't tell me it was skin cancer. He just told me his doctor was mad at him because he is supposed to go in more than once a year (and it had been just over a year since he last had the treatment). But he did tell me that he looked like he had leprosy (I didn't see him). I'm the same way sometimes; sometimes, there is enough going on in our lives, that it is easier to just not think about some of those things.

I sure do hope that Grizelda took your invitation and vacated the premises. I will keep you in my prayers on both fronts. As always Sherrie, your blog inspires and lifts me; you are going through so much, yet you take the time to share. Thank you~
