I have been waiting for my pathology report, so today I went to see the surgeon and he told me the pathology report had come back. I was very excited. And then when he told me the cancer they had taken out was 99% dead I was super happy!! Thank you for all your prayers and fasting.
As you know we have been waiting for the pathology report for a while. When they took the cancer out of Scott’s arm they sent it to the lab to test it and see how well it responded to chemo treatment. The deader it was, the better! If the cancer responds well, the survival rates of the patient are increased. Everyone responds to chemo differently. Some respond very well and the cancer dies almost completely. However, this is more or less rare. We know people who only achieve 30%
Today, receiving the news of Scott’s cancer being 99% percent dead, how wonderful!!! I was in awe at the amazing blessing. What on earth did we do to deserve such a wonderful blessing?! Once more, I will type words of thanks for your prayers, because they mean so very much. But truly, the words aren’t enough to express the gratitude. Every fighter needs a cheersquad! and every champion needs friends to celebrate with. We are grateful for you fighting this battle with us!! How humbling to know that Heavenly Father is so aware of us. I stand all amazed. So, so amazed.
Explanation from above. Scott is referring to our belief that the Savior Jesus Christ not only took upon him our sins so that we could be clean and forgiven, but also suffered the pains and afflictions of all people. Scott has mentioned recently how many sad stories there are here at St Jude. How hard it must have been for the Savior to suffer for all of us. I personally agree. It is more than I can understand, but I am grateful that he did, and that he knows and loves us each individually. He knows our pains and our joys.
Matthew 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
and Alma 7:11-12 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people;and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
Miracles are happening for us! Thanks, for your many many prayers! I am overwhelmed with Gratitude. I hope to write more on my thoughts and feelings over the past few days soon. But this post is already too long and it is getting late. My love to you all
