The latest...

Just had a phone meeting with Dr. Coscio and here's where we stand:
  • They are still testing the tissue from the biopsy to determine what type of liver cancer.
  • This could have started in the stomach. It is likely James will have a endoscopic procedure to see the inside of the stomach to determine if the cancer started in the stomach.
  • Our course of treatment has changed and is unknown. We could be looking at chemotherapy before surgery.
  • Dr. Coscio is sending the tissue from the biopsy to MD Anderson Pathology for a second opinion.
  • James was cleared by Dr. Coscio to hunt tomorrow morning as it may be his last hunt of the season.

Prayer request

  • James continues to be pain free.
  • The pathologist will determine what type of cancer.
  • James will have a successful hunt tomorrow.


  • Thank God for Dr. Coscio. She is working hard and exploring all options to see that James is treated properly with the best of care.

We should have some more answers tomorrow. Thanks again for love and support through prayer!!!

    You and James must stay focused!! Do as your doctor says, but keep your eyes on the Great Healer!

    Philippians 4:8 ESV
    "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anythng w...orthy of praise, think about these things."

    Simply put...don't allow inaccurate thinking to rob you of God's power and ability in your life. Recognize limited or inaccurate thinking.

    Healing Verses:
    But He said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27)

    "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith." (1 John 5:4)

    Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour. (Matthew 15:28)

    "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." (Mark 11:24)

    God Bless you and yours. A.W.O.Y.A~

  6. My dearest Amy,
    You and your husband are absolutly in my prayers. I know with your up beat, humerous way, and clearly strong personality this is not a battle you can not beat. I was diagnosed with a rare spinal cord tumor, they just knew we were in for a huge fight. Then got downtown and they said it was a big, nasty tumor but was very beatable. Not cancerous, just a bad location.
    You are an amazing women and driven to succeed so beating this obstacle is nothing for you.
    Please know I adore you and if you need me call. I am here for you night or day 832-493-1661.
    Remember what a meeting at the dumpster did for us? A STATE Championship!!!!!!!
    Love you alot,
    Pam Lynch

  7. Amy
    our family is praying for you and your husband. You all are in are thoughts and prayers.
