Miracles happen everyday. They happen all over the world. Some are big, and some are small. Oh how amazing miracles are! I am so thankful that my family has been so blessed to receive many small and BIG miracles.
- a local elementary school surprised my mom with a check from a Relay for Life event they did.
- a local high school presented my mom a check of the money they had raised through various fundraisers.
- on my mom's birthday last week, many people brought her nice (and delicious!) gifts.
- My mom had a pet scan and we got the glorious results today.
Thank you for everyone's support, love, and prayers. We truly live in a beautiful world.
Here are a couple of my mom's facebook posts. You can hear the news in her words.
Feb 2012- diagnosis of stage 4 esophogeal cancer, terminal, 6 months to live untreated, 1 yr to live or longer treated. Non curable. May 25, 2012- results from pet scan- tumor? not there- no where to be seen, big lymph nodes that were filled with cancer? gone. Spots in lungs that were worrisome? no cancer! One lymph node that is 1/2 inch big is a hot spot and there is cancer there. 18 weeks of chemo, continued prayers and I would say I beat the 0% odds the dr. gave me. Non-curable? with faith, and works and prayer and priesthood ANYTHING is possible! love you all!
So 18 more weeks of chemo and possibly surgery to remove my esophogus but I will cross that road when it comes. I feel like I have my answer that it is Heavenly Father's will for me to be here. If you have researched esophogeal cancer you will know that what has just happened to me after 5 weeks of chemo and radiation doesn't happen- there were other forces working for my good besides the chemo and radiation!
