Good News!


First of all I want to say thank you soooo much for your many prayers because HE IS LISTENING!! I had a PET scan on Tuesday and was not expecting to get the results until my doctor’s appointment next week! However, my wonderful nurse Pam called Wednesday evening and gave me the best news I have ever heard in my entire life! She said that my PET scan stated that there was no evidence of any more cancer!! That just made my day! We had popcorn and a cherry lime aid to celebrate that night 🙂

God is just so amazing! He puts people in my life on almost a daily basis that show me His love. I had my heart and lung function test yesterday and I had the same pulmonary technician as I had the first time. Her name was Rachel and she is so sweet! She was genuinely concerned about how I was doing and even got tears in her eyes when she asked me about how it was to lose my hair. She was so encouraging and made it not so bad to have to go through the tests I had to do. Today, Nanny and I went shopping and the girl in Buckle that assisted us was super sweet as well. After telling me that I smelled good, she gave me the biggest compliment that I have gotten in awhile. She told me that she loved my eyelashes!! I did not have fake ones on today either! I just had a little bit of makeup on and she was being serious! I love how good God is!

While doing my bible study the other day, I came across a few verses that spoke to me so much! James 1:2-4 states “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” This is so very true. God has definitely used this time in my life to test my faith and mature me. Although it hasn’t been the most fun time in my life, it has surely been a time that I will always be thankful for. He has richly blessed me!

I don’t have much planned this weekend besides dinner with friends Saturday evening. I will keep you updated as soon as I get the results about my heart and lungs. I think I was more nervous about these then the PET scan because I don’t want to have to worry about damage to my heart or lungs after this is all over. However, I know that God has been so good thus far and that He will bring me through again! Thanks again for your many prayers! Hope you enjoyed seeing all the new pictures I recently added! 🙂

  1. I tried looking at your web site in my iphone and the format doesnt seem to be right. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellular phone layouts are not working with your site.

  2. Brittany~this is wonderful news! I am sure your other tests will be great too. Your words are truly a witness to the glory of God in our lives. Like Sara, I have enjoyed reading your blogs and following your progress through this. God bless you & your family!
