we have an answer - sort of

The nurse called Craig this afternoon and read the radiologist report to him. He was able to see enough of Craig's upper lung in the scan to know that he did not have these nodules in November. So what does that mean? It is new. It could be cancer. Or an infection. Or a number of other things. Craig will need to see a pulmonologist to see what the next step is. We are hoping to hear from the urologist over the weekend with his recommendations for dr.'s.

This is hard; I won't lie to you. We have been hopeful, praying, believing that the cancer is gone. And it very well could be. But oh, that fear just wants to creep in! All the what if's, the questions, the unknowns. I know from last January that thinking about anything past today is crippling and I DO NOT WANT TO BE THAT PERSON! So, I am walking around my house, taking my thoughts captive, praying all the scriptures that we have plastered everywhere and refusing to give up hope. I feel like it is all we can do since the alternative would be to give up and wallow in fear.

This family is going to have some battles ahead. But God has been growing our faith these past months, probably just for this. Your prayers strengthen and encourage us. Please don't quit!

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3

With love and so much gratitude,
