Day 139 - 2/25/19
I have an appointment today to have my labs drawn. I’m preparing myself for the inevitable shot that comes with these labs because of my white-blood counts being low. I’ve already been forewarned that I will probably have to get the shot today because of the surgery coming up soon. We don’t want any delays because of the low counts.
On my way to the appointment, I get the phone call with the results of my MRI. In my breast, there is NO TRACEABLE CANCER. YESSSSSSS!!!! The chemo treatment was effective in killing off all of the cancer in my breast and lymph nodes.
Elation is an understatement! While the sternum area is still in the back of my mind, I’m celebrating this victory! God is SO GOOD! This is an answered prayer. One that I cannot express how grateful I am for it.
I MUST give kudos and thank you’s to everyone that has lifted me in prayer. It is through their faith that this has happened. I’m not taking any prayer, large or small, for granted. This is the power of God at work!
As I sit waiting for the results of my labs, I am on cloud 9. And even hearing that my white-blood counts are low does not bring me down. I cringe as I get the shot, and then I’m happily on my way. I’m reminded that God is faithful—even when I’m not… And I have to thank him for that!
"For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness." Psalm 33: 4 (ESV)
