We got the pathology report back today. Unfortunately the news is not encouraging. The Oncologist says it is Stage 4 and in its final stage. The cancer is everywhere, including 3 tumors in her uterus....which is why she is bleeding. We did get a hold of the Oncologist at Banner Desert and he is reviewing all of the test results before he decides if it is in Shelley's best interest to transfer her.

Hi Shelley, it's Carrie McCall. I love you! I wish I could make everything better. You are my favorite person, and I love your family. Thank you so much for being such a beautiful person and someone I have ALWAYS wanted to be like. I miss you guys. I wish I could be there and be able to help, I feel so frustratingly useless here in Las Vegas. I'm sure Haley is trying to help as much as she can. I could never put into words how much she loves you. We are praying and fasting for you and your family. We are praying for Elder Conway as well. I'm coming to the Valley in a week and I would really love to be able to come visit. Rest up and take it easy. I love you!

Shelley and Mike, bless your family during this moment. I wish I had a joke to make Shelley laugh and Mike ask tons of questions. Instead how about trying distantvisioning. OK, close your eyes and view the beautiful aqua Atlantic with coconut palms lining the beach, soft sand between your toes and a tourist in a thong who forgot to shave their butt. Ouch - my eyes are burning. What is in your medication??? Love you. Cousin Susan

I can't tell you how concerned we are for you, when we heard about your illness we were so shocked and heartsick that you have to go through this. We have been praying and fasting for you and thinking about you constantly. I've decided that if you have to be sick, you are living in the right place, because you are surrounded by people who love you and are anxious to help your family while you are getting better. I will be in touch with your ward and see if I can get on the list of people waiting to serve you and your family, I'm sure it's a long list of people who are anxious to do anything possible to help. You are a beautiful and amazing lady who is loved by many. Heavenly Father is listening to thousands of prayers in your behalf.
love, Shelly Haggarton
