Half way!

I finished week #3 of chemo and radiation today!  As of yesterday, I am half way through my treatments!!  The most amazing thing is how good I feel!  If you didn't know I had cancer, you wouldn't be able to tell that I am sick at all.  Several friends have been bringing meals for us during the week, and I feel almost guilty for them to do so.  I told Mark that maybe I should act sick or limp or something when they come to the house with food so that they will feel like they are actually bringing food to someone who needs it!!  

I had appointments today with both the radiation oncologist and the medical oncologist.  You can see in both of their faces a look of wonder.  They are surprised that I am not feeling badly.  The medical oncologist keeps asking me about my  medication to make sure I am taking it correctly. They can't figure out why I look and feel so well.  

And I smile.  Because I know.  I know that you are praying for me daily.  I know that you are praying specifically for the destruction of cancer cells, the protection of healthy cells, and for minimal side effects.  I know that you are praying for strength and for peace.  And I know that our God listens, that He has heard your prayers, and He has answered in a miraculous way!  

So, thank you.  Thank you for your faithfulness to pray for me.  Thank you for putting your trust in an awesome God.  Thank you for loving me and my family.  Thank you for standing with us as we watch God perform miracles. 

And thank you for the delicious food! : )  It really has been a great help to us!

"You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth,"  Psalm 65:5


  1. What an amazing, beautiful, Happy Happy Happy testimony!!!! I mean not have the appearance of one with cancer but rather vibrant, joyful... feeling pretty darn good cept for being tired... and heck, feeling tired seems to be pretty common ground for a variety of things including, in my case a colicky infant that I feel sometimes like a lump of ground up meat. :) Your amazing the doctors and probably even yourself to some degree but still having that awe and gratefulness to God for carrying you through it all. Prayers are being lifted up daily on a constant basis...Heaven is being flooded and God is on His throne covering you and holding you are being held and ever so gently being carried through this storm. * happy dancing all over the house!!!!!*

  2. truly an answer to prayer. Perhaps the doctors will want what you have (if they don't already)--JESUS!
