A miracle has happened!

Today, God showed himself to me again. I received a miracle. My Surgical Oncologist called today to inform me that the initial pathology reports were wrong. The cells they found were NOT cancerous. Further testing showed NO cancer. There were seven biopsies done in my sinuses and they were all cancer free! I was shocked! I could not believe it. I am still in a state of disbelief. No surgery as of now. The doctor wants to biopsy again in 4 weeks to be sure, but as of now I am cancer free. This makes me a little nervous, but this is where I just have to trust God and lay all of my worries at his feet.

These past couple of days have been extremely tough for me. I was so angry and could not understand what God was trying to do. I was so afraid for the surgery and the possibility of loosing my eye. I was more scared than I was before chemo and radiation. I had so many emotions going on at the same time that I could not communicate to my loved ones how I felt. It was so overwhelming. I cried and cried. We prayed and prayed especially for the protection of my eye.

This morning I woke up to find my right eye dialated. It was very scary. I thought for sure it was the end of the road for my eye. That the cancer had finally found its way in. They had me immediately go to an Opthomologist to have it checked out. After a thorough examination the doctor determined that the patch they had placed behind my ear to prevent nausea after surgery caused the dialation. I guess it is very common. And she also determined that my eye had no damage from radiation. It was a good as could be.

As soon as we got home and we pulled into the garage, my dad came out with the phone. My doctor was needing to talk to me. He said he had more good news! No cancer!

Yes, this has been a crazy couple of weeks. A lot of ups and downs. I thank all of you for riding this rollercoaster with me. I thank you for all of your prayers, support and love. In four weeks, I hope to give you all good news again. Hallelujah!

So, we're still on for the 10K in the Spring! I am so happy for you - I am crying tears of joy, in front of a co-worker, which I never do.

See you soon!

This is so awesome. I told Jeremy last night that I had a feeling once your doctors met today that maybe the news wouldn't be quite so bleak. I had no idea that the outcome would be so wonderful though! I just had this feeling that I should check your blog this afternoon. I will continue to pray for positive results and a peaceful heart as we enter this holiday season. I am so thankful for you Sue!

With Love,
Michelle E.

Sue, We just learned of your site & I've been checking it 2 times a day...what a glorious day for you! Your faith and belief have guided you over yet another hurdle. I hope you are celebrating with your beautiful girls and Jason. We think of you so often...remember carrying our baby, Sam, around in the Snugglie at your wedding? He is now a 13 year old head of wild curly hair!!! Jack is almost 10...time certainly flies by. Would love to see you...maybe we can get together next summer when we come up to Dad's by Eau Claire...keep your faith and love flowing...they are on your side! Kari (Karrmann) Sides & family
