How special!

Betty Sparrow is using her cretativity to delight and bring awareness to cancer patients in the area.

There will be a lighted drive-thuu service on Saturday Sept. 5 at Mossy Oak Mall in West Point at dusk showcasing her artwork on the luminaries she has helped raise money for The American Cancer Society. Betty Sparrow will have about 100 lighted luminaries displayed for about an hour and a half.

Last year, her luminaries were part of special cancer walk in Washington D.C.

Love her ❤️

Just another…


So, my tumor markers went up two points to 11. I know, I know, they are down from 20, but going up is a little disappointing. I begged Dr. Howard to do another chemo embolism, but since they are not showing up on my CT, we are going to wait and do another scan in three months to see what’s what.

I hate waiting!

Waiting is one of those virtues I NEVER ask God for help with, because He gives me plenty of opportunities to learn it if I pay attention!!!!! UGH! It is DEFINITELY one of the first lessons you learn with cancer!

But what a BLESSING to be in the low tumor marker numbers and thank the Lord for a short day of chemo! Every other Monday is just three hours, compared to six hours the following week. UGH!

HEE HAW UPDATE: Apparently, Hee Haw is gone for the time being from the RFD-TV channel (no one else is picking it up, either, PTL). Someone at my house is quite sad about it, but I am HAPPY!!! WOOPWOOP! But believe me, the corney jokes and the horrible music will live on at our house until someone is too senile to remember the words!

You can pray for me! I was told this week that I will have a lifetime of HEE HAW, “as long as we both shall live!” (Lord help us!) 😬

I love this…

Tuesday marked my five-year “cancer-versary.” I can hardly believe it has been that long. It seems like yesterday I told Yvonne Hitt that I needed to tell her something, and she assumed I was pregnant! 😄 I had been to several doctor appointments, so that was a logical assumption. And I laugh every time I think about it! I love Yvonne!

Today, we are in Tupelo at a doctor’s office. We see a lot of doctors and nurses and go to a lot of offices.

The sign above is in Dr. Jeffrey Howard’s office. I have come to realize many of my doctors and nurses follow Christ. While that may not be important to everyone, I think it is quite special! ❤️

Not as scary as it looks 🤪

Not as scary as it looks! I have always had a bad cough brought on by allergies as far as doctors could tell over the years. In 2020, I have officially been coughing all year. I have been taking strong medicines to get it under control  and it finally ended this weekend. The folks at the cancer center suggested it might be chronic bronchitis (that lasts forever!) So I took the lung capacity test at OCH Regional Medical Center this afternoon. I hope we can solve the mystery. I am tired of coughing my head off — especially getting a tickle in your throat in the middle of the night and you cough hysterically and wake up everyone! 😝 It wears you out! Pepper always asks if I need water or cough medicine, then rolls over and is snoring again in seconds! He is amazing! His powers of sleep are truly remarkable! #GODISGOOD
