Still The Same

Not the situation. I do have an update. What's still the same? Me! I'm still the same friend, relative, and coworker you know. I'm still the same, and for the most part, so is my life. There are still kids to care for, bills to be paid, dishes to wash, and resources to publish at work.

Don't tell me to take it easy or slow down. It makes me want to slap you (in love of course). I'll get there, I promise. But for now, I want to seize the day. So thank you for your prayers and keep them coming, but don't treat me like I'm dying. Or I will slap you... Hard. (The truth is we're all dying and not one day is promised to anyone!)

Update: I have good news to report. I've been accepted as a patient at Emory! I almost forgot I was actually going to be paying them with how privileged they made me feel to "offer" me an appointment. "You're in," she said. I'm thankful. Emory's Winship Cancer Institute has a U.S. top-ranked cancer program. It's #1 in cancer care in Georgia and is a designated cancer center for the National Cancer Institute. I'll be seeing Dr. Toncred Styblo.  She is a surgical oncologist recommended by friends who are breast cancer survivors.

My appointment is Thursday, April 16 at 2:30 PM. It's likely I'll transfer all my care to Emory. I've been happy at Northeast Georgia Medical Center, but let's face it, this is Emory. They have access to clinical trials other hospitals don't. 

Prayer requests: 
  • For my focus to help me prioritize and complete important tasks
  • For me to survive this crazy spring break with my crazy kids
  • For Dr. Styblo's wisdom and anointing - I'm claiming complete healing!
Love you. Thanks for loving me.
Emily
