A Different Scan

Last night, we are all in the kitchen getting dinner on the table when my sweet daughter notices an appointment reminder on the fridge that says PET/CT scan...Thursday at 12:30. She begins to stress/panic and asks me what wrong with the dog??? Why is Rascal having a CT scan?? Oh, Honey. The PET scan is for me....and has nothing to do with pets - more about the type of technology used for imaging my lovely insides!

So..I'm not raising rocket scientists (thankfully, oldest daughter married one...) but I do have a scan tomorrow and would appreciate your prayers. This is a routine - if anything is truly "routine" - scan done every four-six months to check my lymphoma.

I have noticed while browsing blogland....there are many prayer requests among friends - many that are very serious. What a privilege it is to "bear one another's burdens" in prayer!

I've also noticed the weather is really goofy. In the last couple days, there has been snow directly to our the west..and even directly to the south - in North Carolina!! but we saw not a flake! Not that I'm really sad but it was strange. And could it be any colder??!! When you think temperatures in the 30s are, "hey, not so bad!!" that is NOT a good thing!

  1. Hi Jennifer...

    I will most definitely be keeping you close in my prayers. I'm praying for good results! Keep the faith!

    We have temps around 19 degrees right now and I'm freezing! I would like to see a little snow, but I am not a cold weather kind of gal!

  2. What a cute story about Emily!

    We will be praying for you tomorrow and for great results!

    We love you!

  3. i'll keep you in my prayers for tomorrow as well! the weather has been really strange here too. we did get snow monday but that was it. speaking of cold weather, on friday it was around 8 degrees if i remember correctly and on saturday it was 15 degrees and it felt balmy outside, LOL.

  4. I will have you in my heart and in my prayers tomorrow.

  5. Praying that everything goes well tomorrow!

    We got a little bit of snow, but it's all gone now!

  6. That was a funny story.. but not a fun thing coming up. I'll be praying that all goes according to His plan, and that YOU are perfectly at peace in His will. He loves you SO much, and I think He sends each of us your way to make SURE that you're wrapped in that blanket of love tomorrow. Praying..

  7. Hope everything goes well!! Let us know when you can!!
