Can Insurance Play Doctor???

Well...my secondary insurance is playing doctor again. Last week they had rescheduled my PET scan from Friday to Tuesday (today) because they wanted to see the results of my CT scan before they approved my PET scan. Well, I got the call last night that my insurance did not approve the PET for me to do today. I am not too sure how to read in to this, so I am trying as hard as I can not to. So, I will still be going tomorrow morning for the results of my blood work, CT scan and mammogram. Hopefully my oncologist will tell me what to do next. Whether or not we will reschedule the PET and try again, or just not do it. We'll see, but continue to pray! I know God is in control, I just need to not be so stressed or worried.
Love to all,
Holly

We signed up!!!

Yes, Jonathan and I signed up for a 5k run. It is Saturday December 6th in Downtown Ft. Worth. It benefits the arthritis foundation and we will be wearing reindeer's and jingle bells on our shoes. Well, at least I will be doing that, not too sure that we can get Jonathan to do that:)! We are well on our way to losing the weight we wanted by January 1st, and are very happy about it. It is supposed to get somewhat cold this weekend and I am so excited about that as well.
Also, on another note, today marks the 4 year anniversary since I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and I am proud to say that I am a survivor!!! I went today for blood work and I go tomorrow for my CT scan and Friday for my PET scan and a mammogram. FUN huh?!?!? All this testing, and I get no present in the end...well, if I am still clear, I guess you could say I get to keep my health.:) I went for blood work today, and no lie, I usually go in there and they have to stick me like 6 times before they find my (deep) vein. Well, I went in today and they found it on the first try YEAH!!!!!!!!!. However, I had to request the nurse that pokes the chemo patients because she has been the only one out of four phlebotomists(blood suckers, I like to call them) that can find my vein. Besides that she talks to me and makes me forget what she is doing, until I laugh and it jiggles the needle...oh well. Enough about that, but I would like for you to pray for me in the coming week. I do not get any results from all of my tests until Wednesday, and I do get SEVERELY nervous. I may not show it, but I get jittery and I can't think about anything else the whole week. Such is life every six months...besides all that, what do I have to fear, GOD IS IN CONTROL!!! He knows me and knows the desires of my heart and He is the ULTIMATE PHYSICIAN. But, I am still human and I need to get over my nervousness.

On another note, Jonathan and I are going to the A&M game in Waco when they play Baylor this Saturday! I am VERY excited about that, so for at least three hours, I will think of something other than test results. Gotta love those AGGIES!!!

I hope you all have a GREAT week and God Bless!!!

In Him,
Holly

Who's your Leader?

So, with the day of election at hand, I thought I would give my two cents as well. I must start off with saying that I am a McCain/Palin supporter. I am a republican. However, I have heard many people very distraught over the fact that Obama might win the campaign. As much as I might not like it or believe he is the wrong choice, I must say that I am at peace with it BECAUSE, I know that God is still on His throne. The Bible tells us to be submissive to our leaders and government officials because God knows who they are and what there heart is all about. God is in control. Nothing has happened that He was surprised by. He did not wake up one day and say "whoops, I didn't mean to do that." No, God is sovereign and He knows what we need and when we need it. I am not saying that Obama is right for our country, don't hear me saying that at all! What I am saying is that God is right for our country and He has our best at heart.
Now, just so I am clear, this is not an Obama endorsement at all, I did not vote for him, nor would I vote democrat due to my Biblical foundation on the issues of abortion and gay marriage as well as my overall moral values.
Saying all of this...If you have not voted...GET OUT AND VOTE!!! Stand for your beliefs, even if they do not align with mine, let your voice be heard!
God Bless, and God Bless America!

Father, I pray for our next president, I pray that He would fear you and do the things you would have him do. Allow our country to come together during these times of crisis. Let Your light shine through us so that those that don't know you, but know us, will come to know You because they know us. AMEN!
