Thanks Be to God

March 14, 2007

I went to St. Louis yesterday with my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, and my wife. My mother-in-law has now completed two chemotherapy appointments and she was getting a PET scan to see whether the treatment is working. She was diagnosed with Lymphoma and had an orange-sized tumor in her abdomen around her aorta and vena cava.

Good news! The tumor itself has shrunk by 50% and its activity level has gone from 13.8 to 2.5 (I don’t know much about the interpretation of those numbers, but my wife does and she is VERY pleased).

My father-in-law has been convinced that she will be fine. “She has real strong faith and she’s meaner’n hell,” he says. Her faith is an example for me. She has accepted and expressed that “either way, I will be healed. Even if that means going to be with God.”

Well, we all agree. But we like this kind of healing better. Those test results were very good news. The doctor was upbeat, so were we, and we pray for continued healing.

Thanks be to God!
