I want to thank everyone for praying for Tom during this bout with cancer. It wasn’t easy to move right after he had his last chemo treatment, but God worked it all out for us.
One of the first things we had to do when we got to New York was connect with an oncologist so that Tom could have his follow up PET Scan to see how effective the chemo was. We heard from the doctor’s office today and the scan came back good. No cancer was evident and he is now in remission again.
He will have a check up in July with the doctor to discuss follow-up treatments. There is a big relief in my heart today and I celebrate the fact that it is gone.
With cancer, I live in the now – it’s gone now and life will get back to normal. The unfortunate part of it all is that this type of cancer has a very high recurrence rate. As far as the medical profession is concerned it’s not “if” it will come back, but “when.” That’s the medical profession.
The medical profession doesn’t always factor in God. The hope I have in God is that Tom will not have to go down this road again. I can’t and I won’t let the medical profession rob me of the joy of a good report with the underlying warnings of recurrence.
Thank you to all of you, who have prayed during this difficult time – it has helped us more than you know. I thank God for His part in all of this. I thank Him and hold on to the hope that Tom will not have to face this again. With God all things are possible. With Him we are made whole and we are healed. For this I am grateful.
