some good news and update to prayer request

Hey guys, great news today. My mother in law's Pet Scan results ruled out stage 4 cancer. Praise Jesus. We still don't know if the cancer is in the lymph nodes (which would be stage 3 and require chemo) until the surgery. Her surgery is tomorrow at 9:30 here in Slidell. Please keep praying. We leave Thursday morning for China.  I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of this. She means so much to me and I want to be here to help her because I know how scared she is of surgery. She's never had surgery. It's just hard for me. I'm the caretaker : ) I want to hold her hand and be by her side. I know the rest of our family will pull together and be there for her. It's just not going to be me and I don't like that.

We are believing that the cancer is not in the lymph nodes and that she will not need chemotherapy. Please join us in prayer for her surgeon to guide him and give him wisdom, for no complications to the surgery, no cancer in the lymph nodes and for her to make a full and complete recovery.

Thank you for praying for her. Please also pray for peace for her and for us.

I love you guys and appreciate your prayers.

Prayer Request - update

Thank you guys so much for praying for my mother in law. She feels your prayers. We found out yesterday that the CT scan showed No Metastasis. Yeah ! So, it's just in her colon. Based on what pathology had said we feared that it had metastasized to the colon from somewhere else. But it hadn't. Thank You Jesus. She has an appointment with the oncologist on Friday to find out what kind of treatment she will receive and prognosis. It will probably be surgery then chemotherapy. We'll know for sure on Friday. She has been out of pain for the most part this week. She firmly believes it's because everyone has been praying for her. I cannot thank you enough for your prayers. We are believing that she will have a good prognosis. Please join us in that belief.

There is a chance she will have surgery while we're in China. Please pray for us all to have complete and perfect peace about all of this.

Much love to you,

A special prayer request

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. Psalm 30:2

Dear sweet friends please pray for my mother in law. She has just been diagnosed with cancer. We don't know much more than that right now. She's having a CT scan on Monday which will give us more information. Please take this to the Lord on her behalf. Pray for complete healing of her body. For strength as she goes through the most difficult time in her life. For her family to continuously lift her up in prayer and surround her with love. For her to know just how much she means to us. 

I can't thank you enough for praying for her. She is so special to me : )

The latest......

in our quest to radically follow Jesus and make a difference in the lives of the least of these.

Have you ever heard of withthisring.org ? 

Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.

Proverbs 24:12
