Results

I've finally allowed myself to breathe and the news is slowly sinking in. I am happy to report that by the grace of God Lucy received a good report today.

Thank you all for the blanket of prayer that you covered our family with today. Your prayers are what kept us moving today. I will be honest and say that for a long time I have felt as if these scans we're going to be ok. However, starting this week doubt had begun to creep into my mind. By noon today I could hardly breathe. The weight of fear that weighed on my chest made it hard to even move.

We know that today was only one step in the journey of many, many miles but we are rejoicing in today's victory. Praising God for His gentle mercies and answered prayers. Thanking God for the miracle in my sweet Lucy.

The tears are streaming down my face as I imagine how light your heart must feel! We continue to pray for strength for you all and especially complete healing for Lucy!

Thank you for sharing your daughter's story. By doing so, your faith has touched so many people, including me. May God continue to watch over Lucy.

  31. That is wonderful news. I know you are so relieved and are so humbled by God's mercy and love. My husband has an MRI every 6 months to check on his tumor so I know exactly how you feel. My advice to you is, rather than focusing on when the next MRI is, focus on life and living it to the fullest. I found that I would get through one MRI only to begin worrying about the next one and that was not fair to myself or my family......the worry was consuming me to the point that I was somewhat removed from my own life. It certainly is easier said than done, but every time we go and his tumor is stable then we make a little more progress with our emotions. After what we went through, I don't know if we'll ever totally forget about it from one MRI to the next but we've certainly come a long way. I am counting on God to give me and you that peace which only He can provide. Many blessings to you and your family!

I am a mother of 1 child who is perfectly healthy...I sometimes think to myself I am worn out this is hard but you probably would laugh in my face because clearly I have no idea what hard is do i?. Reading your blog has made me cherish every moment with my son because you never know when it may be you that is dealt the news you never want to hear. I admire you and hope you know its ok to break down at times. I'll keep sending the prayers up for your entire family :)
