When The Lord Answers...

Ephesians 3:20-21 "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." NKJV

When the Lord answers, He answers in a BIG way.  We're seeking a second opinion and the doctor that has offered to give us an opinion for free, has just informed us that he will be presenting Jay's case to a board of doctors next Thursday so that we may receive counsel from not just one, but many doctors.  I don't know how many doctors, but it's more than just one and that makes me so happy.  The Lord really is looking out for my Jaybird and He is showing me, and hopefully Jay, that He is in control of this situation.  I have a peace in my heart that even I, a believer in Christ, don't understand.  And that is exactly how it should be.  I don't know what the consensus will be with these doctors, but I've been praying for the Lord to give us an answer that will really tell us without a shadow of a doubt, what path we should take or if we should accept that there may be nothing further that we can do.  I believe that we will have that answer very soon.  In the meantime, God IS in control and I am leaving it with Him.  He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think!

For those that are praying for us, please pray for the Lord's wisdom for the doctors, peace for Jay, and ultimately the Lord's will be done.

Hi Jamie, I was sent your way by way of AJ.  I can relate so much to a lot of what you are going through.  My husband had Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma (of which they told him there was no hope) and then bone marrow cancer leading to AML (leukemia) a few years later.  He had a lot of chemo for the first cancer, and then for the bone marrow cancer leading into leukemia he had a bone marrow transplant (stem cell transplant).  He is alive today because it worked, praise God.  The bmt worked on both cancers, and now he is in remission from two cancers!  During his treatments, he has probably had chemo more than 60 times (maybe way more), but today he is doing better than he ever has.  Let me give you the latest entry on him:

So like, don't give up Jamie.  I share in your praise to the Lord, that he has given you the panel of doctors to look at your husband's case!  I will be praying!
