It's Time for More Prayers!



We hosted a dinner party last week for some neighbor friends. Instead of a big flower arrangement for our dining room table, I decided to feature a miniature bouquet at each place setting. Amber medicine bottles served as the vases. Vinca blossoms and fresh rosemary sprigs provided jaunty color. The mini-decorations were a hit!

Please keep us in your prayers this week. Mr. Jim will get an updated CAT scan this afternoon. Then we will meet with his oncologist on Wednesday to find out the results and decide on where we go from here.

On Tuesday, I will have a biopsy near my right eye. I’ve seen a total of six doctors for an ocular swelling condition, and I decided to allow the last doctor to perform the surgery. We assume that it is a benign inflammatory condition, but it is best to rule out possible underlying diseases. She will also take a little tuck on my eyelid to correct droopiness that has occurred in the past few months. Realignment of my right eye will have to wait for another time and another specialist.

We appreciate your warm thoughts, prayers, and friendship! I will provide an update later on this week, as time allows.

  9. Prayers and comfort for you both. So many of my friends are having the eye tuck for droopiness that obstructs sight. My sis is quite certain that I could benefit. Perhaps some year. I am sorry that you guys are dealing with multiple issues simultaneously. Praying for a good report for Jim and a good one for you, too. Love that you are hosting dinner parties! Those med bottles come in handy sometimes! Very pretty individual bouquets.

    I love your dinner party flowers! I'll bet that these individual arrangements were enjoyed even more than a larger centerpiece would have been.

  22. Dear Dear Donna... You know I am praying for you and Jim. I really hope this eye thing gets resolved soon. You have had your share and more!!
    It's good that you can distract yourself with something as normal as a dinner party. I think I would just have my head under the pillow.
    Hugs

  26. You both continue to be in my prayers! My dear, little mother is going through some eye issues. One surgery down - another to go in the near future. It keeps us all running but we are doing what needs to be done, as you two are. Sending bunches of hugs!
