Only ten weeks ago

Only ten weeks ago

It's is difficult to comprehend that just ten weeks ago my daughter Lorelei was struggling to breathe.  She had a massive (11 cm) conglomeration of cancerous lymph nodes in her chest that was pressing on her lungs and making it very difficult for her to breathe without coughing.  (For comparison, a softball is only 9.75 cm in diameter.)

Today, after only five rounds of chemotherapy, she had a pulmonary function test and it revealed that she is operating at 135% of normal lung capacity!  Pretty good evidence that those tumors are shrinking.

Tell me that is not a miracle. 

And next week (on April 24) she gets to use those super-sized lungs to coach her Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team to victory over the Sacramento Kings which is what she wished for when Make-A-Wish asked her to wish for anything she wanted. She's likely the Thunder's biggest fan.

I like to think that God knew all along she'd need that extra lung capacity to yell at Perk.

Lorelei Decker will coach the Thunder April 24 2012

Hi there! This has been a crazy month, and I will just defer to the majority on the next book. I flnaily figured out flickr (yes, I'm a bit slow with this) and joined the group. I'm set for the next go-round. We've had a tough month with the loss of two good friends and our family involvement has been very intense. I look forward to getting back to cooking and experimenting, and now photographing! Debra

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
to tell someone!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has
83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I
had to share it with someone!
