The updates from all of the Nick's test are in. We will start with the good news.... The MRI of his spine continues to show clear of any additional tumors. Huge praise!! Thank you Lord.
The results of his blood work was not what we wanted to hear. His tumor marker levels have elevated from the 20's to the 90's (the highest they have ever been). This is an indication of an additional tumor (s). The next step is more CT Scans of the pelvis, abdoman,liver etc. Then we meet with the oncologist again. As soon as I know when that CT Scan is I will update.
As always we continue to pray expectantly for a miracle. When these obstacles arise, we also pray for God to reveal to us what we need to know, so Nick can recieve the right treatment . So we would ask that you pray for ANY tumors that he may have be revealed in the CT Scan.
Yes, we shed many tears and are dissappointed, but we cannot waiver from His path, His will, His plan for us. Trusting that God's plan for us is one of peace, love, joy and an abundant life. We ask the Lord to keep us in His peace bubble and continue to prepare us for whatever lies ahead.
I have been holding Nicks hand a lot more!!! And a lot tighter!! I just want to protect him, comfort him, relieve his suffering and while I can bring some of that to him, it is only in the arms of our Sovereign Lord that he will find the real comfort and peace that his heart desires. Everyday our Father is bringing us through and giving us strength. We continue to cling and never let go.
We love the song "Never Let Go" and we lift our hands high when we sing these verses:
"And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on, A glorious light beyond all compare, and there will be an end to these troubles, but until that day comes, we'll live to know You here on the earth. Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on, And there will be an end to these troubles But until that day comes ,Still I will praise You, still I will praise."
We are so thankful God has you all holding our hand, as we stand upon His rock together.
