A Reminder for Monday

If you're like me, you check this site several times a day looking for news, background info, or a provocative thought from Greg. Hoping to take advantage of this ongoing curiosity, I wanted to remind you to be praying for Greg tomorrow.

You'll recall that tomorrow Greg takes his first intravenous iron (first a small dose to check for allergies, then a larger one if the first one 'takes'). He and Christine will also meet with Dr. Perkins, the oncologist, to learn the results of the tests taken last week.
I asked Greg tonight what they were hoping for in tomorrow's meeting. He and Christine are hoping and praying that the spots on the liver are really something other than cancer (such as scar tissue from hepatitis that he had as a teenager, unlikely as that might be). And, as he pointed out before, if it turns out to be liver cancer instead of colon cancer spread to the liver, that is ironically a good thing. You can also pray that Greg will not have an allergic reaction to the intravenous iron.
Of course, pray that God's will would be done and that Greg and Christine would have the peace of Christ in the midst of uncertainty and danger.
