Today Mom called to say that she got her report back from her blood work. (They did the test a week earlier than normal to see if the tumor marker was still going up. If it was, they would look at doing something different than the chemo meds she was currently taking.)
The tumor marker went DOWN!!! It was at 151 last time and now it is at 80. . .almost went in half. All her other blood work came back very good. All was in the normal range. She will go ahead with her third treatment next Wednesday with the same treatment as before.
We appreciate everyone’s prayers and warm wishes! Please continue to pray that it will drop down into the normal range (20 or below).
I leave you with a passage that I keep meditating on. I love this! This is true of my life. . .
From Psalm 18 (The Message)
But me God caughtâ€”reached all the way
from sky to sea; he pulled me out
Of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos,
the void in which I was drowning.
They hit me when I was down,
but God stuck by me.
He stood me up on a wide-open field;
I stood there savedâ€”surprised to be loved!
God made my life complete
when I placed all the pieces before him.
When I got my act together,
he gave me a fresh start.
Now I’m alert to God’s ways;
I don’t take God for granted.
Every day I review the ways he works;
I try not to miss a trick.
I feel put back together,
and I’m watching my step.
God rewrote the text of my life
when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.
