The PET Scan is in!

Alan got a call from Dr. Ross today with the PET scan results. She said that the PET scan looked really good and that there is no "definite" tumor. This does not mean they are ruling out tumor, but it does mean that there is a less likely chance that it is tumor. This also means that they will not have to shoot Alan with a real strong radiation which is wonderful!!

I can't help but be a little skeptical of the results just b/c we have been given great news in the past and then shot down again. I pray that these results are correct and that God has taken care of Alan. We need something to be in our favor. Unless something changes, and we all know how that can happen, Alan should be starting his radiation Monday in Little Rock...still for 5 weeks.

Can I just say that this is the worst roller coaster ride I have ever been on! Too many ups and downs and loopty loops!! Just to make things a little worse, I have lost my wedding ring!! This is the most precious piece of jewelry I own. Alan had the whole set made for me. I have a really bad gut feeling that Carson has dropped it in a trash bag, commode or some strange place. We have turned our house upside down looking. I think I'm going to have to break out a metal detector! O yeah, I never did a post on this, but a few Mondays ago on our way to LR, a little ole lady backed in to my car!! I have had this car for 6 years and I have never had the first scratch or dent! I just don't think I can take anymore.

Another Thank You to everyone! For your prayers, strength, kind words. It takes our wonderful Lord, Friends and Family to get you through these difficult times and we appreciate everything.

God Bless You!! I'm praying for you guys and you are always on my mind. :) I just want you to know that I understand completely how you feel about your wedding ring. I lost mine last November. It's so devastating. It so much meaning and to know that it may never be seen again is so sad. :) I have to remind myself it's just material, but it's still hard. I'll pray that your ring show ups SOON!!! BIG HUGS love you guys bunches
