Tuesday's Update

Hello again. THere hasn't been really too much going on in the past few days. Unfortunately, I'm not keeping food down like I would like to...but I probably just need to be patient, and realize it's all a process.

I was a little more tired after Church on Sunday--and I slept quite a bit. Whenever I sleep a lot, we worry that I might be getting the C-Dif infection again...but I think it had just been a big weekend.

Tomorrow I will have an endoscopy--a scope of my esophagus. That is what we did in August where we first discovered I had the tumor. It is a more precise test than the cat scan, and so if there are still parts of the tumor there, it will show that. We are not done with all the tests yet, and even though the cat scan results were terrific, it is STILL a process. :)

I have been able to do a little more of my Church responsibilities...and it is so nice to be able to do something for someone else. You feel like you are contributing again, and that is a good feeling.

I can't believe tomorrow is December 1st. Christmas will certainly be here before you know it. I am learning to order things online...and hoping to simplify that way. The trick of life is always to try to learn to focus on the important things and not get caught up in the "thick of thin things", but it is a lesson we have to keep re-learning. Have a great day! I love you, Louise


  1. Yeah - I made it to the first of the list to comment! Yes - the thick of thin things.....I keep doing that even though I know better:) You are contributing so much to so many people - by just your great example of faith. Here's hoping this week will continue to be one of good news....happy on-line shopping! Love you, Janet

  2. Louise,

    Good luck with the endoscopy tomorrow. I am hoping it all looks great!


  3. Hey Louise. Good luck tomorrow. I'm utterly confident it will be just fine. And don't worry about being tired or the swallowing--that will sort itself out in time. We are enjoying the snow here and another little adorable kitten that just arrived at our doorstep last night!!! Love, Sue
