Weak in the Knees.

I got the call from mom and listened to some of the news. I had to wait for the rest because Steph was calling her back. While waiting...I broke down and wept. I mean truly wept. Why?? Because our GOD is so amazing. He is working a miracle.

Let me give you a run down. They were checking the scans to see if the lesion on her ovary and the lymphnodes near her spine are responding to chemo. The doctor seems to think they are which is good news and bad news. The good news, you want cancer to respond to chemo. The bad news, medically speaking...it means that those two spots are most likely cancer. What is strange, is the fact that the doctor is not completely convinced that they ARE in fact cancer. Here's the plan.

Medically, she will continue with chemo but from what I understand we will be doing a maintenance program which means taking out the drug (not sure of the name at the moment) that has been making her so sick lately. This was music to our ears!!! They will rescan her in two more months to see if the areas are still shrinking. We are also TAKING CONTROL of our diets and eliminating sugar. It is what she needs to do and we are fully aware of the fact that it is very difficult to do in this day and age. We know that in order to be successful in this, we must stick together and make it TOP priority this summer.

Spiritually, Steph finally received a direction for prayer today. For so long we haven't had enough information to pray specifically and we really just prayed for her body to be healed. Today as the doctor talked about the "spots" on the scan he said that there is a chance that they are all just scar tissue. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS???? There is a chance that as she sits on that plane today...she could be cancer free!!!!! Here I go again...weeping. I stand so amazed in the Lord's work. I LOVED hearing that the doctors are a little baffled. For once I truly believe that it's NOT because they don't know what they are talking about. It's just...sometimes even doctors can't explain everything. The Bible can. Because of Jesus the blind have seen, the lame have walked and the hungry were fed. I believe that because of Jesus...Stephanie will be healed and restored to complete health. Our prayer for the next two months?

PRAY THAT THESE SPOTS ARE NOT CANCER! PRAY THAT THEY ARE SCAR TISSUE!

I will most likely have more news later, but for now I must go. I have a girls trip to the beach to plan! Which reminds me...I also have to do my Dancing with the Stars workout today too!!!

Thank you all for your prayers and support!! I can't say it enough...Thank you.
