It was my prayer that this post would be announcing a completely normal colonoscopy.
In spite of our prayers for this "cup" to pass over us, God has chosen that we will walk through the fiery trial of colon cancer. That was my mom's diagnosis following her colonoscopy
this past Friday.
Are we disappointed? Yes.
Are we afraid? Yes. (Just being honest.)
Are we hopeless? NO!!
HOPE HAS A NAME AND THAT NAME IS JESUS CHRIST!!!
So here is where we are. My mom has a CT scan of her abdomen Tuesday morning (August 2nd) at 8:30 a.m. to see if the cancer has spread past the outer wall of her colon. WE ARE PRAYING MIGHTILY THAT THE CANCER IS CONTAINED IN HER COLON. She will have to have surgery to remove a part of her large intestine, where the tumor is located, but if the cancer is contained she probably will not have to have any chemo or radiation. THAT IS OUR PRAYER!!!!!
We also need God to open doors to the surgeon that He wants us to use. We are looking into several options, as we want the BEST care possible for her. So we would appreciate your prayers for wisdom and guidance and open doors.
Again, I thank each of you for praying. We are fixing our eyes on Jesus and are DETERMINED that what the enemy meant for harm, GOD IS GOING TO USE FOR HIS GLORY!!!!!
Bless you all, and please agree with me and my family in prayer for my mom, Donna.
