I am so blessed...God is so good all the time! I still can hardly believe all the good news of last week...clear bone scan, clear CT scan and cancer markers normal! What a blessing and what a testimony to the power of prayer! I know that I have many prayer warriors out there and I am so grateful for all of them. Our church is doing a wonderful series on prayer...if you have a chance, you should listen to these messages by going to worth your time! Craig and Harold are doing an amazing job!

I know that my battle is not over yet...but I can see the end more clearly now. People ask why I am still going to have to have more chemo with such good results. Dr. Sneed explained that because the cancer came is metastatic from the breast cancer ten years ago...we will have to treat it agressively, so that it won't come back again! I will have a few more chemo treatments, then we will repeat the PET scan and then determine the long term plan. My understanding is that this will be a maintenance chemo plan. I have talked to other patients receiving chemo when I do, and some of them are there for a once a month chemo! I know that God is in control and that He has the plan. I just have to keep my faith and have patience! I can't ask God, the Great Physician, to guide my doctors in my care, and then not follow their advice! I am truly pleased that I had such amazing results this soon! Like I said, God is good....all the time!

The past week was a rough one physcially....very tired and weak and having the "out of body" experience again! I am beginning to lose my fingernails, which I didn't do ten years ago...this is a strange thing to happen...but as I look at them...I just see in my mind all the cancer cells that left with them!

Today I am feeling much better...getting some strength back! The weather is going to be gorgeous...will try to get outside and soak up some Vitamin D....while giving thanks for all my blessings!

Wow! Debbie, I am so happy for your great results!! I'm looking forward to celebrating with you in a couple of weeks. It is amazing what God can do. I'm sorry that you are losing your fingernails. Does it hurt? I sure hope not. I'll keep praying for you and your family.
