Note this was going to post on Monday but in respect for my mom sharing with all of our family, I waited. Since this post, my mom has gotten additional news that the cancer has not spread from her rightside to her left. An answer to prayer...we will continue to pray that they get ALL of the tumor next Thursday during her lumpectomy - thanks in advance for your prayers. We know they work!
Since I wrote last we had a whirlwind week at the lake. My cousins from Texas had planned on coming
up for the week so the kids and I planned to join them. What we didn't expect was my mom found out
she has breast cancer and my Grandma Wetherbee being rushed to the ER and being
placed in a medical coma on a ventilator due to pneumonia. BUT God is good all the time and there were
so many things to be thankful during the proverbial "Storm" that
without further a do I will share what I am thankful for this week....
141. Just 24 hours
after being in a medically-induced coma and on a ventilator, my Grandma was
released from ICU to go home. Miracles
happen everyday folks...this is one of them! Praise Him for answered prayers.
142. Mammograms -
they provide early detection of breast cancer and because of that, my mom's cancer is not only treatable, it is also most likely curable.
143. Great Doctors
with great wisdom and bedside manner
It is easy in the storm to get the "woe is me"
attitude but it can always be worse and God NEVER lets us go....even when the
storm seems to bad to pass through, God is always there to lead us
through. I am thankful to know Him and
love him.....God is good all the time, nothing is a surprise to him and he
always goes before us. That is a
comforting thought! How do I thank Him
enough....by giving my life to Him and sharing His good news with others....
