As many of you know my husband has cancer. Its Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and it’s the type that won’t get fully healed by medical science, which leaves God room to work a true miracle. Tom had a PET Scan last week. During his last check up with the oncologist the doctor found a lump on his neck. He said he didn’t think it was anything, but wanted to make sure with the PET Scan.
Working in a doctor’s office I can obtain test results without any difficulty. I purposely didn’t last week because I was teaching on Friday and Saturday for the first time in over two years and if it was bad news…well let just say I didn’t want to know. But yesterday was another story and when I got the test results I was so relieved. It said that there was no evidence of recurrent lymphoma. This is really good news. The doctor confirmed that today.
I lay hands on him when I wake up in the morning and prayer for his healing. Often I pray and I hope that the Lord is listening. Today I was able to see answer to prayer come to fruition. We have a busy calendar filled with wonderful opportunities for Tom and chemo treatments at this time would have been so difficult for him.
I know that one day after one of these PET Scans the doctor is going to tell us, “I can’t believe it! It’s a miracle, the cancer is totally gone!” Amen! But until that glorious day arrives, I celebrate the news that it hasn’t spread. I’m holding my breath no more, but just living life as it comes…one day at a time.
Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness and for answering my prayers. Thank You Lord for a good report. Amen.
