Rejoice with us!


I’ve got good news! Amazingly good news! News so good I’m excited and exhausted and I’ve got verse after Bible verse rushing through my heart and mind!

O magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together.

My latest CT scan showed amazing results! I’m still in a bit of shock from the good news. My latest CT scan showed no visible cancer. No evidence of disease. The radiologist’s report says my left lung looks normal. I believe, oh Lord, help Thou my unbelief!

No cancer.

No words.

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good. His lovingkindness endures forever!

Sing aloud to God our strength;
shout for joy to the God of Jacob.

“Open your mouth wide and I will fill it”


So, what does this mean? What happens next? Well, I continue on the meds, I continue with the clinical trial, I continue with loads of appointments and tests, I continue giving thanks …


I am so thankful for the good medical care I receive, for the researchers, for the funding, for the new meds which are making such a difference for so many cancer patients.


I’m thankful I can get out and enjoy the beauty. I have good days and not-so-good days, but my energy level is increasing and I am thankful.


I’m still dealing with various side effects and feeling tired and weak much of the time, but I’m breathing pretty well and I’m generally able to do more things with less rest. I’m still working on my physiotherapy, doing my daily shoulder exercises. I’m feeling less pain, and thankful for that.

I am so thankful for the many, many of you who continue to pray for us, encourage us, bring us food and other gifts, and bless us in so many ways. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


Even if you’re not usually the praying type, we invite you to join with us in giving thanks, in praising the Lord who is so very good and who gives so generously, so abundantly!
