CT Results

Dr. S found nothing unexpected on Monday’s CT scan. The only change was that some trace amounts of left over fluid surrounding the lung (Pleural effusion) from January had diminished.
PHLEBITIS~ She gave me a prescription for an inflammation of the vein on my arm located where the IV from my last treatment was. Since I’m programmed for only three more chemos, we decided against a mediport at this late date. Tuesday’s desensitized chemotherapy continues on schedule. As mentioned in Monday’s post, please continue to agree and thank God for strengthening these veins!

Being urged to pray for our Sunday schools while following a prayer schedule in a book on intercession recently, I realized the inadequacy of teaching in the local church today! As a result, “believers” are shamefully uninformed about what they purport to believe.

Matthew 24:24  (ASV) For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

~deceive the elect?


Ephesians 4:14 (ASV) that we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error;

Over the years I have been horrified at the totally ridiculous things people in church believe and do. It seems the only thing necessary is to have a bunch of others frequently repeating the same thing loudly or a video/tweet going viral to make everyone jump on the bandwagon. That’s where I get off and analyze what is being said in the light of God’s Word.

Hebrews 13:9 (ASV)  Be not carried away by divers and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established by grace; not by meats, wherein they that occupied themselves were not profited.

The Bible is the plum line by which we can evaluate all things, but not knowing It is how you are going to be deceived!

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts;

We only want to hear what makes us feel good or maybe to concentrate on one need and neglect the whole counsel of God’s Word. If a preacher is not giving out the unadulterated Word of God, YOU are not exonerated. It is YOUR responsibility to search it out and make sure you are getting a balanced diet!

IMG_5080 ** Had the ct scan that I asked for prayer about this morning. Almost as soon as we arrived home, I replaced the first-thing-in-the-a.m. cup of java that I missed because I could not eat or drink anything when I woke up!

The tech noticed all the bruising on my arms from recent IVs and having blood drawn and commented on how sensitive my veins have become. As a testimony and prayer request:previously in my life group, we prayed for them because a couple were getting scarred and blocked up from being used so much. The lab succeeded in getting blood from one of the affected ones the next time I went for bloodwork, even though they had not been able to draw blood from this vein twice before!

Please pray for continued restoration so they can support the treatment I need.

Ct scan scheduled

To prepare for the original surgery date, I had a ct scan so the doctor could have a heads up what she was facing. The results, although showing great improvement, left me feeling disappointed. After all God would get greater glory if nothing was there, right?

When the operation actually took place one month later, it was obvious how much the Lord had done in the interim! The recuperation afterwards was notably better than average!

So, now, Dr. S has scheduled a follow up ct scan to evaluate my condition in order for us to form our strategy of attack.

In January, God’s Word to me in Isaiah 43 was that the flame shall not kindle upon me. Please be in prayer that anything we need to stand against  be revealed.


Hope~Anchor of my soul

-It’s already been 8 weeks and 2 chemo treatmenfs since having surgery for ovarian cancer! I’ve come a LONG way from initally throwing up that first Sunday in December, not having enough strength to do anything but sit covered by a blanket during “the holidays,” my leg blowing up like a balloon January 3 with subsequent diagnosis of blood clots in my left leg and stage 4 ovarian cancer. (The fluid in my lung contained cells designating where the cancer was located.)

How could this happen??!!!

God was not taken by surprise and has shown His divine intervention and care every step of the way.

Psalm 67:2 That thy way may be known upon the earth, thy salvation (deliverance, sSaving health
