Curious Happenings

Because he continues to have constant swelling in his right leg, Dan was sent for a Venus something to see if there is any deep vein problem causing the swelling.  (That’s the leg where the sarcoma was.)  There is no problem. However, the technician said, “While I have you here, I’m just going to take a look at the tumor.  “Then he said, “There is a lot of fluid in that tumor!”  

I called the oncologist’s assistant.  She said  she will tell the Dr. about it.   Could it be that God is dissolving the tumor into liquid…or is this just a collection of trapped fluid that cannot go further?  What we do know is that the muscle mass of the tumor is not as large as it was thought to be. That has got to be good news.

Today Dan had two MRIs – one for his leg; one for his pelvis. He had to lie perfectly still for about two hours…not an easy thing to do.  We’re hoping to know what we are dealing with before they begin chemo. Please pray for Dan’s healing, and pray for Dan’s medical team that they do exactly what Dan needs.

Tonight God gave me this encouraging message from Matthew 8:27, when speaking about Jesus, the disciples said, “What kind of man is this?  Even the winds and the waves obey him!” And, in Matt. 10:26 – 28, Jesus said, “Do not be afraid of the servants of Satan.  There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known….Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul.  Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”  We are safe in Jesus. There is nothing to fear.  — Anne and Dan
