Two simple sentences, and yet they left me speechless. I hoped it was true, I believed it was true, but to hear the actual words blew my mind! I felt as if my heart actually stopped for a split second. As surreal as it was to hear the words, "You have cancer," last May, it was just as mind boggling today to hear that there is no sign of the disease in my body. I feel like I am in shock again. I lay on the floor and breathe deep. I am alive. I am still alive! I get to go on living!
Thank you Jesus, for hearing my prayers, and the prayers of so many others. Thank you that you are good, and you would have still been good even if the results had been different. I love you!
Then I call Mark, and my parents, and frantically send text messages to everyone who was waiting with me... what an amazing group of family and friends! God has surrounded me with so much love and support!
My brother, Cary, responds to the text message with these words, "The PET scan may be normal, but that doesn't mean YOU are normal!" I love that he always makes me laugh!
My friend, Debbie, calls from California, laughing, crying, dancing... and then she says to me, "Welcome to the CANCER-FREE club!"
I am cancer-free!! I survived!! Thank you Jesus!
"I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!" Isaiah 65:24
