Expect a Miracle

God answers prayers
My oncologist had the Pet/CT scan results today
It is a nothing less than a miracle
I have barely a trace of cancer left, in my spine.
The rest is gone!!!
She said 1 to 5 % show improvement in the bone
& hardly ever as soon as mine .
She even thought I may not NEED radiation
but since I am doing so well, let's make sure
it's ALL gone.
Radiation should start next week, I've been magic markered!! LOL
5 days a week, for 28 days straight, that's it.
I did get Herceptin and Zometa today, which is every three weeks for a year.
Myrecent echo cardiogram was even better than last
one, how does THAT happen???!!!
Life is good, Rich and I are elated.

  4. Deeana,

    Whoohoo!!! Praise God. Our prayers have been answered, my friend. I am ecstatic for you. Excellent and yes, make sure it is all gone.

    Aunt May is taking radiation and chemo at the same time. That is quite a handful but I continue to pray for her as well.

    God is so good and He does hear our prayers. Blessings and love to you, my friend. Mary

  6. I have been following your blog for some time now but have not commented until now. I am so happy for you that you recieved some wonderful news. I can only imagine what you have gone through and are going through right now. A very close cousin of mine has been through chemo and radiation and has been cancer free for a year now. She as well as you have amazed me with your strength through it all.
    One of the songs we sing at church comes to mind. A verse in the song is this.
    "Be not dismayed whate'er betide, God will take care of you: Beneath his wings of love abide, God will take care of you."
    I will continue to keep you in my prayers.
    Blessings to you,
    Judy

  43. I went back to look at the e when you told me at the first. What a different woman you are for the whole journey, huh?! Even stronger, even deeper. (Way shorter hair!) Some of us God takes home, sometimes on a long rugged road, sometimes quick...and then there are those that are left to make a stand. We don't get to know the plan. Must be we're left for a reason. I knew when twice they came telling me dire drastic things, I learned to tuck in under Those Wings. I knew I wasn't given more time here cause I was better than anyone else's loved ones. I figure it must be cause there is more for me to do. I surely knew it had nothing to do with my "thoughts" or lack thereof. And I knew it was way beyond my personal abilities to have brought it all about. Your blog and journey was just part of all of it, your family, friends, everyone's perspective had to shift. How it drew people close, kept others company and gave information and hope to many. What you do with all the rest of your days, that is between you and God alone...and boy, hasn't that been enough so far?! How cool is it Deenz, now ya see what I mean! Walk up to the edge of the abyss and it looks back at ya and all that can be heard is "God is".

  54. Deena,
    I didn't get to check the post last night...so when I got in this morning I was absolutely overjoyed with praise...OUR GOD REIGNS and He answers prayer....What a witness you have been through all this...if there was a nurse or person dealing with you through this journey that was not a Christian when the journey began...they should really be thinking long and hard now...
    And the best part of all is your wonderful attitude through all of it...

    I continue lifting you and Rich up in my daily prayers..that you will continue to improve (loose the little bit that is left)
    and that you will get stronger as each day goes by...

    I also am counting on your hair growing back in curly!!!

    Love,

  59. Deena, I too am a long time reader who has never posted. But to your blog was the first place I came this morning, hoping for news.

    I have also been having a health struggle for the past several months although nothing like yours has been. But mine brought me back to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    I am overwhelmed with love, tears and joy to read your news. May Jesus continue to hold you in the palm of His hand as you deal with radiation and continue to kick that cancer in the butt. Praise the Lord!

  103. Deena:

    I haven't checked in as often as I should, but I am soooooo glad I did tonight. Praise God for His faithfulness. I will join with the rest of your friends in saying that your attitude is an inspiration to us all.

    I have kept you on our church's prayer list (500 or more praying every Wed night) weekly and will write a praise report this week.

    Can't wait to hear more good news!

    In Him,
    Jim's Patty
