Good News

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8

I am so glad that our God is not a has-been! He is the Great I AM. God IS our refuge and strength, a very PRESENT help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

I woke up Monday, dreading my doctor's appointment because it seems I always hear bad news. In prayer that morning I poured out my heart to God and said "I am ready to hear some GOOD news!"

The doctor came in and first announced that I needed to return after the CT Scan. She couldn't really help me until she saw the scan. Then she said, "Your blood work came back. Your CEA count is down a bit. That really doesn't mean a whole lot without a scan, but it does mean your tumor is growing extremely slowly."

OK. That isn't the news my heart yearns for..but God answered my prayer and gave me some good news.

Thank you for your support...always.

Friends On A Journey

Hello to all my family and friends. This is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I am still waiting to begin treatment with Kaiser. I have a CT scan scheduled this next week. Wouldn't it be great if it showed NO tumor! I am still believing for a miracle. But I am in God's hands and He never fails.

I thank you all for your constant and continuing prayers. What a great fellowship of believers that we are privileged to journey with. You are all a constant source of strength to me and my family. I cannot describe the feeling of hope I feel whenever one of you calls or writes to say "I am praying for you." I pray that your prayers go up as a memorial to heaven and will return a blessing to you one day.

I love you all,

Beginning Treatment

To my faithful friends,

God has continued to give strength to me during this long wait. I had a consultation with my oncologist yesterday. She is ordering blood work and another CT scan. She has also recommended that I be a part of a Chemo Study for my type cancer. The study combines the regular chemo regimen with one of 3 types of other medicines that curbs new vascular growth as well as other things. I will probably begin treatments next week to drive the cancer into remission.

As always my hope is in my Great Physician who is the overseer in my case.

Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.

God's hands can work where men's hands cannot. He can do what man says is impossible. He says yes, when men say no. He is Faithful Who has promised.

Your friend,
