Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Now we know what we're dealing with. Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).

Doctor wants Penny to begin chemo as soon as possible, but she continues to battle a fever. It was 101 when I left the hospital at 7:30 PM Monday night. They'd like to begin Tuesday, but probably won't be able to until Wednesday.

Love to all of you.



  1. Glad to know the diagnosis. Prayers are with you.

  2. Read up a bit on the internet......sounds scary but I am sure you can beat it!!!

  3. Penny, we had such a good time at the beach over Thanksgiving. I'm still in shock over your illness. But God loves you and so do a LOT of others. Good luck to you as you begin your treatment. DAVID

  4. Penny,
    I am praying for you and your family as you start this awesome battle. You will also be added to the Daughters of the King prayerlist at Canterbury Chapel and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew list, too.

    Our church has started a prayer shawl ministry and I would love to bring you one when you are able to have visitors.

    Much love,

  5. Just got an email from Doug about your diagnosis. So sorry to hear this, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. You're tough and have a great spirit. I know things are going to be OK for you.


  6. I've been keeping you in my thoughts prayers as I have been every day since I heard of your dianosis, Penny!

    Sending love and cyber hugs,


  7. There is peace in knowing that we have been given the right to come before the throne of the Great Physician and present our prayers. Please know that I will lift you up to Him. May the peace that passes all understanding guard your hearts and minds during this time.

    Charlotte A.

  8. Jonathan,Yall are in my prayers. I believe in Jesus when He said. Ask anything of the Father in My Name and He will Do It. I'll stand in agreement with you in this prayer. Love You brother. Now I'm A- in blood type. If I can help or do anything, just call me.
    Your little buddy,
    Artie Shaul
