Surely God is My Help

March 9, 2009

I’m posting an email that my Mom sent out to family and friends this last week. She will be having a Pet Scan on the 17th and then will discuss with the Dr. what the next step will be. No matter what, we have a Great Physician that is in control. He is actively at work in our lives and He is still on the throne. Thanks so much for your prayers!

Surely God is my help; The Lord is the one who sustains me. Psalm 54:4

Many of you have asked that I keep you updated as to what is going on and the results of the “tumor marker” blood test taken last Tuesday. It was to give an indication as to the effectiveness of the chemo drug I am currently taking. The cancer center called this morning with the results which were not good as the numbers had more than doubled instead of going down as we had hoped. I am to take the chemo treatment next Tuesday the 10th, and a Pet & CT scan have been scheduled for March 17 followed by my regularly scheduled chemo treatment.

I appreciate your prayers for God’s hand of healing, wisdom for my doctor, and God to be glorified. Truly He is that “friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

Thanks again for you love, prayers, and acts of kindness.

In His care,
