God Delivers

Well, the past 24 hours have been filled with lots of ups and only a few downs...Jay has been given a miracle...they seem to have gotten all of the cancer out of his abdomen.  Praise the Lord!  He has been in some pain, but nothing that a few different kinds of pain killers couldn't handle...he has been up and sitting in a chair and has taken a few steps in the room...he has done amazingly well...except right now he is having a fever spike...101.8...not really sure why that is, but we are all watching him closely.  He says that he doesn't feel bad, just HOT.  So, here I sit in the room with him...placing cold rags on his forehead and on the back of his neck.  Doctors don't seem too alarmed...it's fairly common to get a fever after such an invasive surgery...so it's not time to panic...just time to give it to the Lord and do my job...be by my man's side. 

So, a miracle has been given to us...nothing surprising because God is capable of absolutely anything...but I am overwhelmed that it appears that my honey gets a break from this disease.  The doctors have said that they were able to get it all...they are confident in that fact.  There is a part of me that still wonders if this is just for a season...but regardless...God is in control and it doesn't matter that we've heard it before, "We got it all..." I am celebrating this miracle in this moment...God is so good.

For those that are praying...please pray that Jay is not developing anything serious and that the fever goes away and there are no setbacks.  But most importantly, in your prayers...thank Him for the miracle of time.

May the Lord receive all glory and praise!

Jamie so glad you were able to drop us a note to let us know how it went.  Indeed a wonderful, blessed miracle for Jay.  Sure the doctors will keep a check on his fever spike and he'll get it back in line shortly.  We got it all.....indeed celebrate the moment dear.  The City of Hope indeed has given Jay and you that. You both are in my special prayers. Will thank the Lord for watching over Jay.  Arlene (AJ)

Well praise the Lord that they got the cancer!  Jamie, this happened to my husband after his bone marrow transplant, a fever.  I am trying to remember the reason, they said it happens to everyone.  Be straight forward and ask the doctor, just right up front, why he has the fever, you have a right to know.  I think it does happen after an invasive procedure.  They told my husband to EXPECT it, that he absolutely would get it.  And so he did.  After a few days he was released from the hospital though.  And he is in remission now from two cancers, praise God.  So thank God your husband is cancer free also!  And if the doctor's say his cancer is gone believe them and rejoice!

Praise God!   This is such a blessing to all that know and love you two.  My home group here in Modesto is still praying for complete healing and continued blessings on both of you.  Keep us all posted on Jay's recovery and know that we are here lifting Jay up to the Lord.

Love you Sister,
