Thanks everyone for your prayers.
Instead of brain surgery, the plan is now that they will biopsy Betty’s lungs. This will give them a better handle on the type of cancer that Betty has. If she has large cell cancer, it can be treated with radiation.
This is good news. The procedure is way less invasive than the brain surgery and means that Betty can go back home sooner.
Let’s keep those prayers coming!
This morning, I twitter spammed every one of my followers to get them to pray for Betty today. I believe in the power of prayer! In other words, I sent all 88 of my 89 followers on Twitter asking them to “Please RT. Pray for Betty, she has stage 4 cancer & is having surgery today.” I asked one of my followers to do so yesterday and Barry (@planobarryb) did. (By the way, Barry draws a terrific and funny webcomic called Don’t Feed The Geek and you should check it out.)
Anyway, getting back to this morning, only one follower retweeted: @the_USO And, now, I know why I support the USO, because – not only do they serve our military men and women well, but they are nice people.
If you’re on Twitter, please ask your followers to “Please RT. Pray for Betty, she has stage 4 cancer & is having surgery today.” If you’re not, please pass on that Betty needs prayers.
Let’s make a miracle happen.
UPDATE: I’m wrong…I wasn’t looking in the right spot…There are a lot of Retweets… Here’s a list:
Just in case you didn’t see the articles from yesterday, here’s the short version: My friend, Betty, has stage four cancer. After 10:15 PST, she will be having surgery to remove two lesions from her brain. I’m asking that all of you who read this, please stop what you’re doing and say a prayer for Betty.
