Day by Day Cancer Is Being Defeated!

I have hope to return to Sfantu Gheorghe where I see this ancient church and fortress from my apple green house

Dr. Akbani’s words were music to my ears!  After carefully studying the CT Scan results today, he looked at me with a huge smile on his face as he said, “The swollen lymph nodes are almost gone!  Your spleen is REMARKABLY shrunken in size!”  He went on to say, “I am 100% confident that we will win this battle.”

What competent oncologists know is that the spleen swollen to twice normal size can be a symptom of lymphoma. I did not have spleenitis!  My body was crying out trying to tell us that I have lymphoma.  My lymph nodes were so large as a result of fighting the aggressive lymphoma in my body.

Four more rounds of aggressive chemo will take place before September.   The battle is not over yet.  Please, keep praying that I will be free of extreme fatigue, nausea, sleep well at night, and become all that God wants me to be.  Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for me.  God is honoring the many prayers for my healing.

God has provided me a lovely room with bath at Broadway Plaza near Dr. Sol Akbani’s office at Arlington Cancer Center in Arlington, Texas.   Though the chemo treatment is very aggressive, I have no side effects from the chemo (except for losing my hair).   God is teaching me much about trusting Him, about being patient…waiting on God is a choice.  God is faithful.  We may not like all of His answers to some of our prayers.  But He is God, our Creator and our Good Father.   He will provide what we need and more IF we will step out of the way and let Him be the pilot…not the co-pilot…The Pilot.  Easy to do?  No, but it’s worth it.  — Anne

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Melissa, Suzanne, & Alva help take care of me now. Last Summer, they brought Let's Start Talking to Sfantu Gheorghe, Romania! God is good!

Beautiful central Romania
