As Wanda put it, this whole week has been surreal.

Waiting in the examining room, overhearing the good Dr. request a breast cancer kit did not bode well. He was quite professional and direct in delivering the diagnosis and the the treatment options.

Then there was the part about the part about no insurance. Her Dr. said treatment will run in the neighborhood of $100,000. A neighborhood I seldom visit. One can only bless the medical establishment in these parts. She has been promised and received incomparable care. It seems like the HR person (who is being replaced) neglected to provide insurance before the promised effective date. All of a sudden Wednesday, health insurance at work became a priority with management. The policy is not the best but at least it is coverage and with Gods help she will be covered.

So the prognosis is good especially since she has innumerable prayers being said for her. We can only thank the Lord for his healing and His hand in the chemo and radiation therapy. I really do think the Lord works through the drug companies. He does bring good out of evil.

Wanda's big sister, Paulette, drove down Tuesday from Baltimore to be with her. She lost her way only once but as a result got to do the white knuckle drive Rt 58 up the mountain. The "Lovers Leap" drive can be unnerving for someone not used to these roads. She went back Saturday after Fridays fog and rain had dissipated. Can anyone be as comforting as a big sister?

Pray for us.

Oh, yes, may the Lord continue with His help and all will continue to come out right. You are fortunate to have each other.

Oh, no, what a tough situation! But if anyone could make it, I'd believe it would be you two with your strong love for each other :-)

The will power can do as much wonder as faith, so act and feel like you will beat this and I'm positive that you will!

I've heard several friends and friends to friends that even got more worse diagnosis from the doctors but have beaten it anyway - to the doctors surprise, so be sure to fight back!

That is a precious picture. It shows much love for sisters.
I do hope all is going well and worry is gone.
God is still with us and His way is always right.

Take care,

Prayers to you and yours!

So is the insurance being backdated or is it still not available? Or did I miss that?

Sheesh! What a lousy situation! Hang in there!

We, there are many of us, are still praying for you both, and because we haven't heard from you, we are concerned.
You will stay on my prayer list.
Much love to you both, Betty G
