Update on Lori Zoll Pharr

at 11:02pm on September 23rd, 2009

I received an email from Lori Zoll’s dad this morning, and he wanted me to pass the info along to you. Here goes:

Deb : This will be the second hardest e-mail I have ever sent. Lori’s earthly journey is nearly over. Lori’s faith is ,as it has always been , very strong. She is in no pain . A few days ago the hospice nurse told us the doctor is not at all encouraged, and that Lori will become progressively more tired. That surly has begun to happen. Please continue to pray her Mom and I are finding this very hard to deal with. Our hearts know that God is in control but our minds keep asking why. Has the hospice nurse, so correctly put it “This really stinks” The love you have all shone for Lori is truly sent from God, thank you all very much. God is good Blair

Please pray for Lori and her family. I hate that this is happening to her!! Cancer bites! Sending big hugs to all of you. Deb

Just an FYI to let you know that Lori Zoll Pharr’s blog has been updated today. http://helplorifight.blogspot.com/

She is extremely tired and very weak. Please continue to keep Lori and her family in your prayers.

New and Revised www.ainsworth1985.com Website

I finally started working on the New and Revised www.ainsworth1985.com website today. I found this website from someone we went to high school with. She is using for her website. It’s called: Weebly.com. ~ Thanks Susan Sargent Sharp!
I have only been working on it for a couple of hours and I think it looks good. It’s short, sweet and gets the point across. There is still a lot of work that I need to put into it, but at least I have one up and going for alumni from the Class of 1985 to take a look at.
If anyone has any suggestions or pictures that they would like to add to the site, let me know.
Here is one of the messages on the Home page:

Day 1 of the horrible news

Today mama drove herself to the hospital and the Drs did all kinds of tests. They took lots of blood, did a ultrasound, CT scan and chest x-ray…. they completely ruled out her gallbladder. needless to say the doctors determined that she has colon cancer that has metastasized to her liver! She is in room 232 at Conway hospital….

Please keep Lori and her family in your thoughts and hope for a full recovery.
