Prayer Request for my mother

My mother had her follow-up scan last Thursday to see how effective her treatments were from the bone marrow transplant and chemo.  She last finished chemo in November and had her bone marrow transplant following.  The standard procedure after transplant is to re-scan 100 days post transplant which was last Thursday, Feb. 11th (which was the first birthday of Lourdes). 

Her scan showed two new tumors present.  It was just heartbreaking for our family to hear those results.  Seeing what she went through, but maintaining hope that it WAS FOR a reason, then only to find that it wasn't, is just devastating.  She was so anxious for the scan.

They want to follow-up with a higher resolution scan tomorrow morning at 8:00.  There is a small chance that the tumors are benign cysts (highly unlikely given her past history).  The doctors recommend a stem-cell transplant and chemo again which she is unsure what she will do.

Once again, I am asking you to pray for a miracle tomorrow morning for her.  Please pray that God will show off again and that her tumors are clear.  PLEASE and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  19. My Mom went to Jesus on my birthday after I was married in the ICU so we could be together. She had cancer. I kept feeling, all during those terrible awful days, that there was a meta-narrative, a bigger story exploding around me. I didn't understand it, I didn't want it, but God was so much bigger than I could see and understand. And now, 8 years out, I still feel that great unraveling of the story that someday we will understand. Praying for you, for your Mother. May God be near.
