In the airport

So Diane and I are in the airport because she always has to be extremely early. So once again I am bored out of my mind so I decided to update this old thing. So this week we're going back for a bloodtest, and an MRI. Which is rather nerve racking, considering the news could be really good or REALLY bad. So we're praying and hoping it's really good, because I'm sick of bad news:)  Luckily we only have to go back a few days, and we'll be home Thursday afternoon.
So anyways people ask me how I am a lot, and about my current condition. So my answer is, Good! For the most part. Recently I have been having a few good days, and then a bad day, then a few more good days then a bad. "What is the bad day like?" They ask in reply, in which I say, "mostly just sick to my stomach, I'll throw up, but basically just laying in bed all day."
The truth is, I'm worlds different (in a better condition) ever since I've been home for the most part. I think there is a healing aspect to the home, something about being there. Or maybe feeling comfortable helps healing. Or perhaps I'm just crazy! But anyways, I could hardly hold a conversation let alone say one sentence/write on my blog at that time at the time I was leaving Memphis. But ever since I've been able to be home and with the people I love, I'm back to my normal, chatty, sassy self!:)
Anyways, this week I've been getting super excited for Christmas, watching all my Christmas favorite movies! I'm definitely not one of those "no Christmas til after Thanksgiving" kind of people. Although I do like Thanksgiving, but I don't like turkey. Lucky for Honey Baked Ham!
But anyways, I'm just severely bored sitting here in the airport... see!  But this next MRI really is scary. PRAYING and hoping for good results. Feel free to do the same:) And thanks so much for all the prayers and service that have already been given, SOOOO appreciated. I feel it all the time. There really is such a special power about prayer, that is a feeling I can't describe when you're on the receiving end of so many. So thank you thank you thank you!
I can do hard things!
