An Update on Mom

Many thanks to all of you for your comments, prayers and concern about my Mom. She is still experiencing a blockage when she swallows and there are more tests to be done. Today the doctors are running a light down the throat and esophogus looking for a blockage. There are more tests scheduled for next week though I am not sure what they are since she isn't sure what the doctor said. I am believing that whatever they find that it will be something minor and something that they can fix somehow real easy. I'll keep you informed. Again thank you and please keep the prayers coming.

My Pop saw the doctor Monday for tests to check his prostate cancer. He had treatments earlier this year and now need to know that the cancer is in remission. This is a strong man who kept on gardening through the spring and summer while going through treatments. Most of us would have given up on gardening and whatever else during treatments due to the side effects. Not Pop. Keep him in prayer as well.

will keep you in my prayers...sounds like a strong family you have there...my Grandpa had prostate cancer and he kept riding his horse and playing cowboy polo until he just couldn't do it anymore....he did what he loved and it made him live longer and fight harder...

Sorry to hear that. Will keep them in my prayers.
Just in case, I've heard that garlic intake controls proliferation of prostate cancer cells.

Bless them both, Becca. It is sooo hard to endure illness from the outside, but even more so personally.
Prayers are still lifted.

Have a snuggly warm eve. TTFN ~Marydon

I want to thank you for the seeds - I got them! I have a nice spot for zinnia in my garden. Thanks again for them, and for your lovely card, too!
