Praise God

Lindy

Thank you for the prayers you’ve covered us with.  We felt an extreme amount of peace today.  Everything went well.  The drive was good and my appointment went even better. 

I received a great report from Dr. Schott at U of M.  The MRI of my brain I had last week showed “no evidence of disease progression”.  I’m still considered stable.  The MRI also showed the two tumors that are still visible do not have a blood supply.  That’s good news.  They suspect the tumor spots that still show up on the MRI are dead tissue from the Gamma Knife Surgery I had in September at Mayo.  This coincides with what Dr. Parney at Mayo warned us about.  He said after he zaps the tumors I could develop scar tissue (dead tissue) in their place. 

When I have my MRI’s, I have them with and without contrast.  The contrast is something they inject me with half way through the MRI and it shows the blood supply in my brain.  We could clearly see that neither spot had a blood supply going to it.  PRAISE THE LORD.  God is good.  I am blessed.  Thank you for your prayers of healing.  I don’t feel worthy of such grace. 

My lab work looked good too.  Slightly anemic, but nothing to worry about. 

Our next plan of action is to get me off the Prednisone (steroid).  I’ve been on steroids since August.  AUGUST!  I’ve tried tapering off them 3-4 times and my adrenal gland has failed me everytime.  Let’s pray that my adrenal gland will wake up and do its job.  I need to get off the steroids. 

The other great news of the day is that we had an offer on our house and it looks like things are working out.  I know nothing is final until the papers are signed, but I dare say our house is sold!  It was on the market for two weeks!  Amazing. 

I go back to U of M in three months for a bone scan, CT of chest/abdomen/pelvis and brain MRI. 

We always end our nightly meal with a prayer.  When Brooklyn was little, we would say Amen and then bust out in this song.  Now Max and Samantha do it.  It was in my head the whole way home today.  Hopefully you remember the song too. 

Amen

Praise the Lord

Amen

Praise the Lord

Glory Hallelujah

Praise the Lord

I’m gonna jump down turn around, touch the ground

Praise my Lord!

    Dear Lindy, I am so happy for the great results. God’s mercies endure forever. I have also been praying for your group of ladies that are going through this journey. My heart has been glued on your friend Kristi and I have been praying for healing because God is able even at this point of her journey. I am truly amazed and motivated by your courage and faith. You are all an inspiration to many of us. God bless you, Lindy. I know that we don’t know each other. I came across your blog one sleepless night in July when you were waiting results on your MRI and I was devestated to read your results a day later. I have been praying for you since and I have asked some ladies in my church to pray for you. I live in the Oswego, IL area in case you were wondering where this weird lady came from (me)..lol. God has given me a heart for prayer since I was a little girl, so it’s no mistake that I have been running across these blogs. My life is being transformed as I pray. It is an honor to pray for you.

  8. Marianne Coughenour says:

    Lindy, you have no idea how many ‘friends of friends’ are praying for you and checking your blog with bated breath. My daughter Rachel has loved you and your family for awhile—how I remember her telling about playing with Brooklyn at Sweet Dreams! Now I pray that your sweet dreams will all come true. Our God is able to do far more than we ask or imagine. Well, we’re asking a lot on your behalf. God is going to amaze us. To Him be the glory!
