prayers and praise (May 12 update from April)

Hello everyone! I hope this finds you all happy and well!

I am writing to ask for prayers for my upcoming scan; it is my first one in 6 months, this is the longest I have ever gone since I have been diagnosed. My scan is on next Tuesday, May 19th at 9 in the morning. I just ask for God’s amazing power to continue to be revealed that there are no tumors or cells of any type that indicate cancer. I am also asking for prayers for peace, as scan time is always a bit of a more anxious time. I am not sure when I will get the results but as soon as I do I will post and let you all know. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for this.

And I would just like to share another praise of God’s goodness and love! Last week out of the blue my doctor called on a Friday night and wanted to share some good news with me; she knew I was resistant to start all of the hormone therapies and shots I am scheduled to start at the end of May but also knew that I was going to hesitantly oblige. Well she called to apologize and explain that as she was double and triple checking my records that were originally sent over from Mass General back in 2013 that there had been a mistake on her part; my tumors were less than 1% positive for hormones. They only do this therapy if your tumors are more than 1% positive, which most women are. I, however, fall into that tiny category that are not so the medicine would not benefit me at all. It would give me all of the negative side effects but have no benefit for what I have, and I would have been on it for 10 years. Therefore, now, I do not have to take it!! I have felt a hesitation to start this all along but did not say no completely, as I will do whatever I can to keep fighting and go on. However, God knew my heart, as He knows all of ours, and He took that difficult decision right out of my hands. On a random Friday night out of the blue He granted news to my ears that just elated me! I was happy and dancing like a young girl who had won homecoming queen all over again! Isn’t God incredible?! I looked up and said “now you’re just showing off!” and smiled and smiled! And then I thanked Him and praised Him for His undeserved blessings upon us.
So we are rejoicing and thanking Him, and in awe of His goodness and love for us. Thank you for continuing to believe in this amazing miracle with us and please keep praying.

Love and God bless, April (:
