Strength in the Lord

Hey, Y'all,
I wanted to post a couple of pictures today to prove that there is life after chemo. Two wonderful ladies in my life are cancer survivors. My life-long friend daughter, Teresa, and my 22 year friend, Ina Ray. They are both very strong ladies, and true believers in the Lord and His mercies. 
Teresa with sister-in-law, Sharyn, while she and Tom were on vacation last month. Look, Teresa has hair! Two beautiful ladies!

My beautiful friend, Ina Ray  

Ina told me that the chemo she was taking just before this picture was made always made her sleepy, and as soon as they had finished administering the last installment of the chemo, they insisted on celebrating with her and taking her picture. She said that is why she looks so "out of sorts" in it. Ina still has Herceptin to take in her port every three weeks for the next year, but it is not supposed to have any side effects.  Ina has gone back to work every day now. She still has radiation to take for six weeks. I know that both Ina and Teresa covet your prayers. Teresa is dealing with melanomas now on her skin, and continues to have some health issues but her faith is strong. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. More later. Bye for now.

What a heart warming picture and story, I have a great fear of cancer I try not to think about it but I feel after reading your post why worry what we have no control over.......or may never happen.

Take care.

Ina and Teresa's stories are encouraging, and yes, I will pray for them.
