Results

Twenty-four hours ago I was at the swimming pool with my kids, just enjoying them.  Right now I am sitting in my living room trying to wrap my head around the news I got today:  I have cancer.  It's back.  In three places. 

I will meet with my dr. here in Dallas tomorrow morning; test results and reports are being sent to my team at M.D. Anderson.  We will decide what to do, although I am told that surgery may not be an option and chemotherapy almost certainly is.

What in the world will I say to my sons?  Christ, have mercy.

Praying for you and your family. Remember that even through the darkest of storms, the Son is always shining, even if we can't see it. God bless you.

Sweet Allyson, what can I even say? Only that I am very sorry to hear this news, that I am praying fervently for you, that I am very thankful we serve HIM.

Have mercy indeed. Allyson, you are the strongest and most faithful woman I know. I know it's so cliche, but you CAN beat this. You have before. Twice. I'm sorry that this ugly monster has once again reared it's head in your life. You are a special woman, a beautiful mother and one of my sweetest friends. I wish I could hug you.
Praying, praying, praying...

Allyson,

You've already been through so much, and yet here you are again. I'm praying for you, your family, and your sweet boys. I'm praying the rosary for everyone today. I don't know how long you are in the hospital this go round, but I'm in Fort Worth every Saturday and Dallas every Tuesday. I'll IM you my phone number if you need anything.

There are many things that have been added to my "Why God" list, and this is one of them. I don't understand and it's not fair, for you and your family, but I will pray with faith, trusting without knowing the reason, that HE is able to heal and restore without explanation! I will be standing along side many who will be lifting you and your family's names up to heaven with love and confidence! You may not know many things right now but you can have peace in your heart that your name will be pressed upon God's heart by so many! God Bless you and your family! Lisa Regester
