Back Home With Megyn

Wow! It’s been a loooooog time since I had the chance to touch base. As some of you know, my adorable little girl, Megyn was diagnosed with Leukaemia in late October. In fact, looking below, I can see that it was the day after I posted the "Agents: What is the benefit? And who is Avon?" blog entry that we ended up rushing her to hospital to find out she was so ill.

There is a lot I can say about the medical system leading up to her diagnosis, but I won’t. Suffice to say, if you ever have to take your child to the doctor because they’ve been ill for a while, DO NOT accept the “it’s only a virus, she/he will get over it” line of fobbing off the system seems to prefer as a recognised form of medical care!

I don’t want to get into that line of discussion, because it upsets me very much. What I do want to say is Meg is responded to her chemo treatment astonishingly well and we thank everyone who has prayed for her and those who have continued to pray. As I write this, she has swine flu and a couple other viruses. Yet she is so well, she amazes everyone.

God is indeed an awesome God!

Megyn sends her love to everyone who has taken an interest in her, and promises to update her blog when she feels stronger.

Since I haven’t had much time to market my new book, Divorce Etiquette, I will take the opportunity to remind you that it is out now, and available from The Wild Rose Press.

I love to hear from my fans, so feel free to drop me a line at

  1. So glad to hear Meg's on her way to getting better. It's shocking that she still managed to catch a flu virus while in hospital for treatment. But your girl's a little fighter. Glad she's come home again, though. That's where she belongs.

    My thoughts and prayers remain with Meg. Her quick reaction to the treatment is positive news. Think you got there just in time.

    Big hugs, Steph xxx

  2. I am so happy to hear about what God is doing in Megyn's life. I just printed this to give to my grandchildren. They've been praying for her.

  3. Thanks, girls.

    Chicki, give your wonderful grands a huge THANKS and a big hug from us. They are truly blessed children.

    I praise God everyday for His goodness and grace.

    Meg is a real giggly girl, and when she was first ill, she stopped giggling, it was as if she'd lost the ability. Then suddenly a couple of weeks ago she started really giggling again. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear her non-stop giggles!

    Then today, for the first time in WEEKS, she shipped along the corridor at the hospital. I was stunned! She hasn't had the energy to do that since late September.

    She still has a long way to go with her treatment, but the consultant told us yesterday that the sensitive tests they did on her shows she is low risk. We now have to wait for the results of today's tests to see whether she is low risk in the low risk category or a higher risk in the low risk category (if that makes sense).

    Since I know Jesus has already healed her, she will be low, low risk!

  4. This is just wonderful news, Monique! So glad Megyn is faring so well.

    You're all still in our thoughts and prayers.

    Huge hugs
