My MRI came back clean and clear! According to my doctor, I have a brain and it is healthy! I am so relieved. Thank you everyone for your prayers and positive thoughts. I can now concentrate on my surgery tomorrow. As I sign off for tonight, I am in high spirits and am ready as I can be for tomorrow. We will arrive at the hospital at 5:00am and my surgery is at 7:30am. Todd will update my blog as soon as he can regarding the surgery and how I am doing. I am looking forward to tomorrow when I wake up after surgery and know that there is no longer a tumor in my lung. What a glorious feeling that will be!

I am praying for you tomorrow and always! I know you will do fine. If there is anything I can do for you, even if it's just someone to chat with, don't hesitate to call me. You are a strong willed person and I admire your positive attitude. You are a true inspiration!

That's great news! We are pulling for you and praying here on the East Coast. You are in our thoughts. Cancer is just rampant and it hit very close to home this year for me with my dad. We also did a blog- such a great thing and was a real spirit lifter for him (and us all really). Sadly we lost him in May but his case was one of the worst kinds he could have had. There are so many success stories so please focus on those and know you have one special man I've asked to watch over you! We do all need to think about what we can do to help with this horrible disease. In the meantime, we are thinking positive thoughts for your recovery and results.

Your friends in Falls Church,
Stephanie (and Dan) Scheel
