All States are Signed On

Yeah....thank you for the united effort and support....we now have someone in every state praying for us and different countries keep rolling in.

The emails, blog and phone calls have been awesome, each time I read or hear someone's message I smile, tear up a little bit and feel warmth shoot through me....all the wishes and prayers are helping us stay strong and be ready to put up a fight.

Lisa herself is in fighting shape. She's been marching around the hospital all day, practicing surgery on her medical doll and chanting her rally cry of "Live Strong, Beat Cancer"

She's not complaining she's hungry anymore, but that could be because we are force feeding her on the hour a nasty liquid called "go lightly" to make her go...uh, well, not so lightly; they want to clear out the colon and intestines. Unfortunately she's been doing this since 4:00 and we've not seen any action. Considering the doctor said she needs to be off all meds, foods and liquids at 12 midnight, I'm curious what they are going to do if she doesn't start "moving".

Surgery is scheduled for 8:30 tomorrow morning which means she'll probably be taken down for pre-op around 7:30....which means both Mike and I are spending the night, because it's Mike's normal night to stay and there is no way in heck I'd be able to leave my warm cozy bed and be her by 7:30 in the morning.

So...that's where we stand...we'll keep you all posted.
