"Be strong in the Lord..."

The CT was today, and because the last one was not that great, and I went a month with no chemo this time, I was a little worried, but "ye of little faith"...the scan was so good!!!I have been on cloud nine all day! Of the 12 tiny tumors on my liver, they test the two largest and these two had shrunk 1/3!!!Also, everything else was presented in a favorable way. I have been in prayer of thanksgiving all day. My oncologist hugged me three times and he was so excited, and said he thinks this is the right chemo, and he also said he is presenting a paper in New York next week about this particular drug combination.

I am still on the daily pill, and this is what gives me the bad side effects--- my fingers cracked, nausea, food tasting bad. Food having no good taste, is one of the worst . Water tastes bad. But, I have lots of energy, and that is good.

Ephesians 6:10, 18 says, "...be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power...and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests..."

Thank you for all the prayers, and thank God for hearing our prayers and giving John and me more days to be together.

    Yippee! I wish I had gotten the word before the children went to bed. We could have done our "Hallelujah Dance"! We WILL do it tomorrow for sure. I am so excited; I think I'll be pinching myself all day tomorrow. Praise the Lord, and I thank Him so that we can lay all our troubles at His feet and allow Him to do His wondrous miracles. I hope John is prepared to keep up with your energy for the next several years, because I think that is what God is telling you, Bev. You've got lots more work to do on this planet. We love you both.

    God is good - always. Be Blessed!!!!
