Twelve weeks and I completed my nutritional approach to improving my body’s health in hopes of stopping the growth and reducing the size of the tumor impinging into my brain. The blood work revealed great results in my nutritional uptake improvement and healing in my gut, but….
what was 15 mm in February (just below the L)
and 18 mm in August, continued to grow to what is now 22mm. (see top right side of MRI pictures)
Because I am experiencing no symptoms, the last 12 weeks for Jon and I were filled with much activity. He climbed his favorite banyan tree,
got a haircut, donating his golden locks for kids with cancer,
helped me babysit,
participated with the 4H archery club,
got to see lots of aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins on my side of the family,
spent time on Grandad and Happy’s farm with the new calves,
who all loved his snuggles,
and the chickens who loved to be held…haha.
Together we hiked the hills,
found heart rocks,
carpeted the fort we started last time,
and enjoyed the waterfalls.
God has so wonderfully provided a place for me to get this tumor taken care of. My 3 little bro’s have become my big brothers in this. Chris, on my right, lives in Tampa
and got me into the Moffitt Cancer Center, had my records looked at, and Dr. Yu, a radiation oncologist, will perform radiosurgery for me. One treatment of intense radiation should be enough to “kill it!”
Thank you all for your prayers and words of life and encouragement. I know that I am not alone, but rest safely in the arms of the One with Whom “nothing is impossible!”
Fear says, “What if???” Faith says, “Even if…”
I know in this life we have challenges, unexpected circumstances, and trials that test us. Knowing that God has a purpose for all that He brings into our lives, brings to me a peace that surpasses all comprehension.
“This God—his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.” Psalm 18:30
