Big Day

Tomorrow is kind of a big day. I have a CT Scan scheduled in the morning. I have never had one, so I don’t really know what to expect. A CT Scan is CT, or CAT scans, are special X-ray tests that produce cross-sectional images of the body using X-rays and a computer. CT scans are also referred to as computerized axial tomography. Two weeks ago I had an MRI and I am still awaiting to hear of the results. It can be a struggle at times waiting for results, but we continue to remain positive that everything is going to work out just fine. I also received news about my appointment with my Onconlogist on August 23. At times I wish everything would happen a little quicker but I have to trust the process. I am thankful very thankful for our medical system here in Canada. Yes, it is not perfect, but to think what others must go through, causes me to be thankful. I would appreciate your prayers for tomorrow. I am not afraid of the scan, and I am not too consumed with the ‘what ifs’ but they are there. They are always there trying to wreak havoc in the back of my mind. I fight on a daily basis to take those thoughts captive and remind myself that He is with me and that He is good!



The Day After

I woke up today well rested and quite hopeful. There are still so many unanswered questions about what will happen but today I have peace. The kids don’t really understand what is happening. We sat them down yesterday and did our best explaining what is going on with me. I think Nola understands a little but the boys are oblivious. My diagnosis seems to hit Jamie in waves. She feels things on such a deep level but she remains hopeful. I think she has more faith than I do. Monday I have an MRI and hopefully will meet with my cancer specialist sometime early next week. When I think about the future there are mixed feelings. It can be overwhelming at times thinking about all the changes that are going to happen to our everyday lives yet we continue to declare over our situation that God is good.
