Healing Thoughts Requested

Please keep my sister Stacey in your thoughts and prayers today as she undergoes a day long surgery to remove a large benign brain tumor.  A little less than two months ago Stacey was diagnosed with acoustic neuroma.  She thought she was experiencing some sinus issues.  Fortunately she sought out a specialist rather than go through her family physician's routine procedures and the tumor was quickly discovered.  She will lose complete hearing in one ear with a long list of other possibilities.  However, we are not concentrating on the "what ifs" but rather imagining her smiling face as she recovers.

Last summer Stacey (right) and her two boys visited Illinois for a week.  Here we are at Starved Rock.

As many of you know from my blog, Stacey is also my best friend.  She has supported each and every choice I have made along my rheumatoid arthritis path and as an amazing positive outlook on life and whatever it brings.  I do believe our thoughts are powerful and ask that you take a few minutes today to send healing thoughts to her.   


  1. Hugs and healing thoughts to both you and your sister. Please keep us posted on her progress.

  2. What a scary thing to happen! I'm sending vibes of comfort, healing and warmth to your sister and you, too, Cathy.

  3. You and your sister look so much alike! I hope everything goes well for her today! How wonderful that you are there for each other.

  4. Sending out all the prayers I can send and asking all my "guardian angels" to please watch lovingly over her. You are blessed to have such a wonderful friend in your sister. (((HUGS))) to the both of you. I have no doubt you need the gentle hugs now as well.

  5. Hi Cathy,

    It is so wonderful that you have reached out to others online in sharing support for your sister. You are very blessed to have such a close relationship.

    You're both in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for asking!

  6. Thanks so much everyone for the warm thoughts of care towards my sister and me. I know they are making a difference.
