On your knees...NOW

When the surgeon call and tells you that he can't reassure you that it's not cancer. That he doesn't know what the lump is...I GET ON MY KNEES.

Matthew 8:3
Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!”

Celebrating 3 years NED!!! Praise God! We Glorify you, Jesus🎉🎉🎉

I thank you God, Lord of the universe, designer and maker of ALL that is in the heavens and ALL that is on the earth. You are a MIGHTY God!! Today we were able to enjoy Your amazing sovereignty in the heavens!! What a beautiful event...a solar eclipse!
Praise God! I Praise you Lord for today you are so real in our lives!!
I praise you that you not only made my children, shaped them, and breathed life into them, but you watch over them. You care about the lives of my children....down to every detail of their life. It is IN YOU that they live and have their being. May the power of Christ rest on them, and may they always shine for you!
I pray that their hearts will always trust you no matter what they see, that their thoughts would stay fixed toward you, and that they follow you all the days of their lives.
The surgeon felt the lump and suspects that there may have been some sort of infection...but he's not sure. He wants to keep an eye on it and give it time. He also ordered an ultrasound to further investigate. We have been down this road before and we choose to believe our faithful God! GOD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD.[...]

On our knees🙏🙌❤️

Natalia Sofia has been loving her new school and enjoying life as a "normal" middle schooler! Last Saturday, she woke up and came over to me saying..."mom, did the cancer come back?" As she pointed to a lump with a dark bruise on her forearm. No doubt, the question shook me up to the core. I quickly regained my composure, and answered with a wide smile..."Noo, you must have hit yourself without knowing!" As a cancer mom, you know which is the next step to take....
Mental note: quietly observe...NO jumping the gun...NO.MATTER.WHAT.PRAY. A few days went by and then the arm pain began. Since her treatment, Natalia lives in daily pain. I admire the strength that ONLY GOD gives her to do a lot of the things that she does WITH pain. She usually forgoes meds and pushes through. Recently, due to the high doses of chemo drugs that she's received (from the 60's-80's), she's been diagnosed with neuropathy (PAINful weakness in her extremities).
Last night her pain was excruciating, and she asked for pain meds..."a ten plus" she shouted, as I ran to get her relief. In addition, she has been overly tired lately and experiencing frequent headaches.
Per her pedi's request, I took her today to get her lump looked at and run a CBC blood panel. Unexpectedly, her white count is a 1.2 from being normal Aug. 7th!!!
The doctor felt the lump and said it's hot to the touch, ordered X-rays, and another lab panel from the hospital....and we wait.[...]
