Jamie's Thoughts

I want to thank everyone for all the phone calls,cards and personal visits on my behalf. I know many of you are fasting and praying on my behalf and I want you to know how much I need and appreciate your faith. Kent and I are exploring many other options for us to look into as we journey along this "Trail of Faith." I have truly felt all of your love, faith, strength and support, very literally! I have had some special experiences as I travel on this journey, and through this trial of my faith I have come to rely on the basic truths of the gospel and the sure knowledge I have that my Savior lives and that He is my advocate with the Father. One of the most imortant things I have learned to date is to have faith in my Father and that He will direct me for good. In the D&C 6:36 it says "Look unto me in every thought, doubt not, fear not." I have a testimony that this principle is true, so please, as you include me in your prayers think positive thoughts and know that the Lord will take care of me according to His Will. I love you all. Jamie

Update to all of our faithful friends and family

Aug 13th-Jamie receives potential diagnosis of pancreatic cancer after a brief hospital stay where she underwent a biopsy of the pancreas. The results, unfortunately were inconclusive and is scheduled for a second one August 28th where they will biopsy the liver. The Doctors are fairly certain that it is malignant but are unsure as to how far it has progressed. We will have more information after the August 28th results.

Jamie, Kent and Family will be flying to Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland on September 3rd for a second opinion. Johns Hopkins is a teaching school and are up on the latest cutting edge technology. Jamie was fortunate to get an appointment with John Cameron who is a leading US specialist on pancreatic cancer. Luckily, she will stay in comfort with Ashley and Todd who live there.
