Tomorrow Can’t Come Soon Enough

Tomorrow is the big day! We have been waiting for Friday, August 21 to come for a few weeks now. Jamie and I will be headed to meet with my Oncologist at 8:30AM. It has been a few weeks of ups and downs as we have had to wait for this appointment, but we remain hopeful and optimistic. I don’t know what to expect as I have never been in this position before. What I do know is we have a list of questions we want to ask and we are told it will approximately 2 hours in duration. My hope is we can start treatment as soon as possible. The concern the doctors have are the spots that have been found on my lungs and liver. So when we meet with the doctor tomorrow, we should have a better understanding of what our approach will be. Many people have asked us what kind of treatments I will receive and the answer is, “I don’t know.” There are a lot of options out there but until we have a clearer picture from my doctor we don’t know how we will proceed. We need wisdom in our decision making. We want to make the best decisions that will help me be free of cancer. I have made significant changes to my eating habits which I believe will be a part of the healing process. I am amazed how good I feel with making these changes. My energy levels have increased and I eat now for nutrition, not comfort. Jamie and I have been blown away by all the love and support our family has been shown these past few weeks. It is humbling to know you and your family are loved so deeply by so many. There has been a lot of music we have been listening to that has carried us through some of our dark and difficult days. There have been passages from Scripture that have sustained us when we have felt the walls closing in on us. One passage in particular has meant a lot to me the past two days. Hebrews 6:19 says, “So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.” Hope has truly been our anchor throughout this journey.
