Happy July everyone! It seems that June went by in a hurry but I cant complain. Summer has been good to me so far!
I talked to my gastro at Mayo a few days ago and got some good news. My CT looked great, the drains are still in place, there is NO abscess, and the abscess cavity is healing! Praise God. I can leave the drains there for as long as I need to and I don’t have to check on them for another month! It’s been a slow and painful process, but after every doctor visit my colon is losing more and more of the grip it had on my life. I am no longer controlled by my colon; I am living a healthy and prosperous life and refusing to let sickness take hold again. God has been faithful and I believe He is only just beginning my full healing in every area of my life.
Now I can’t wait to get my MRIs done and see CLEAN, CANCER-FREE results! We are praying that my tumor markers not only be down but that they be gone; now and forever. I believe with all of my heart that God told me “cancer for a season” and that season is over. Cancer was a part of my past but it is not my identity and I give it no control over my future. “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” A SOUND mind, in Jesus’ name.
Thank you all for your continued prayers. We believe in a big God so we are believing for big things!
And speaking of big things, 3 months ago I got out of the hospital from my last stay. When I left, I was barely strong enough to step up to get into the car. Now, just 3 months later, I ran with Bryan this week. I RAN; up and down hills, outside for the first time EVER with my husband. And, it felt good. For the first time in a decade I am working out and running and it feels good. Thank you Lord, I cannot describe what joy I feel.
How great is our God.
