Just my thoughts....
The more the better...

 Friends and fellow WCites,

     My wife Lisa  and I are in need of some heavy duty prayer help. She may have lung cancer. I hope not.

     About 3 months ago, while at the local movie theater, my wife accidentally inhaled a piece of popcorn. We gave it little thought at the time. Over time, it has caused her an infection, pneumonia, a hell of a lot of coughing, some pukin', 3 CT scans, and lots of irritation and soreness.

     This past sunday, she started coughing and kept it up till she vomited, and being a nurse, she refused to go to the ER. After about an hour and 15 minutes of solid coughing, I and her mother finally decided she was going to the ER, like it or not. Nurses are the worst patients. They treated her with codeine, and ativan by injection and sent her home.

     Tuesday she had a bronchoscopy. They didn't find any popcorn, we are fairly certain she coughed it up on sunday, I saw it in the bag she was pukin' in. But they did find what the Doc called "inflammatory growth". He biopsied it, and we'll have results in a few days.

     He is treating her with breathing treatments, steroids, codeine, and an inhaler. He advised us that this will fix her, if it isn't cancer.

     Seth, if you read this, your 2 cents is appreciated.

     Friends, please say a word or two of prayer for us, add her to your prayer list at church, every little bit helps.

     This may be an odd request, but feel free to email her spirit lifting messages, if you feel comfortable in doing so.
