My radiologist said I would hate him by week 3. I do.

I can't express how miserable I am. The effects of the radiation on good tissue are starting. My throat hurts so much and it feels like there is a ball stuck in it. I can't swallow anything solid and I have problems with liquids. The skin on my neck is also hurting.

Today I had radiation treatment 10 of 34.

In the better news, today I got a handmade prayer shawl from the ladies at Trinity Prebysterian Church in Starkville. It means a lot to me as a symbol of God's goodwill and of theirs. And besides that it is a beautiful blue.

Hi Aunt Mary!!

I just wanted to say Hello and see how you are feeling today. I hate that the Chemo is taking such a toll on your body. I've seen how it affected some of my family members and it's no fun at all.

I bet the prayer shawl you got is georgeous. It's the little things in life such as the shawl, prayers, family, and great friends that make it all worth wild. That is when we see and realize the TRUE BLESSINGS THAT GOD HAS BLESSED US WITH!!

I want you to know that you are in my daily prayers. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.

By The Way:
I am the girl that graduated from Ole Miss, but hates Ole Miss. Your wonderful and dear nephew said that you'd know me by that description. LOL LOL

My real name is Debra Wilson and your oh so wonderful nephew, Jay, is one of my very best and very dearest friends.

Have a Super Terrific Day!!
Hi, Aunt Mary!

It's so cool that Debra commented! She's a lot of fun! I got to meet her in October 2006 when I went to visit Uncle Jay during October Break.

Right now, I'm getting ready to go to the French Senate building to watch the US election results come in. I'm really thrilled I get to see the Senate building! The press is going to be there. I might get interviewed. At first, I was thinking I wouldn't talk, that I would stutter over my words and they would just make fun of my accent, but then I thought of Jeremiah 1:5-8 NIV:

5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart [...]"

6 "Ah, Sovereign LORD," I said, "I do not know how to speak; I am only a child."

7 But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD."

We're all praying that you feel better! You're a wonderful woman! My Mom remembers looking up to you when she was just a little girl and you were 19. Fun, smart, chic, and beautiful, you came to take her out, and she loved just being next to you. You're still amusante, intelligente, chic and belle, and we all love being around you! Thank you for being a wonderful role model!

Have a great day!
