I pray nightly for my friend Katie and her fight against colon cancer. This week I prayed even more than normal because on Tuesday she went in for another scan to assess where her tumors stand. Her previous scans have been encouraging either by shrinkage or no growth - today that story changed. Today, Katie had to hear words of 'growth' and in two places. I encourage you all to visit Katie's page and share words on encouragement and stories of triumph! I know that with Katie it won't take her long to regain her positive footing, but these words she heard today certainly won't be easily brushed aside. Today she begins a new chemo that will hopefully help in shrinking those mean-ol' tumors into nonexistence. Please pray with me that the side effects will be few and the effectiveness abundant. And rock a little purple this weekend in your wardrobe in honor of Katie and her 17th round of chemo.
Now to lighten the mood a bit, let's enjoy a picture of Katie and her husband Ryan with their spoils from The Great White Elephant Gift Exchange of 2006!
