Cancer Update . . . I'm in better hands now

WOW!!! Where do I start . . . No RADIATION!! 

Dr. Holladay was so kind, no Doctor can ever tell you 100% the cancer will not return. But he said my cancer I have has a 99% it will never return. Because it was so self contain. He also went on and on about how wonderful Dr. Castango is. He said she the best GYN Oncologist in Atlanta and he should know he has worked with them all. He was in Atlanta's top 20 doctors for 2008. By the way she also thinks he is the best! When he hold me the news my first words out of my mouth were "Praise the Lord". Without missing a beat he said "I am just here to help HIM". I was blown away again by God's faithfulness. 

From day one He has had me in His hands. I can feel the warmth of His breath on my neck when I am soooo scared. The dots are connected by His faithfulness in providing for all my needs.

I told Tom that I can't believe that is it. That's it!! Are you kidding me?, He said. He puts life so much in focus for me. I was cut open down the middle, everything was taken out, a lot was removed and then some things put back in. BTW, they took out 11 lymph nodes and there was no sign of CANCER in any of them!!! Then Stapled back together. My hormones were removed, I didn't lose it and change into the BIG green monster. Like some women do. No, hot flashes. I am a little moody, but I was that way before. What women doesn't have their moody days. I am going to have to be tested over the next 2 years and then yearly after that for CANCER. I am not CANCER FREE as of yet, they do say they are 99% sure they removed it all. PTL!!!!

The way I (the both of us) look at life is different. When you are told you have cancer and that it is a FAST growing kind, so many thoughts run through your mind. First, my heart and soul went straight to the Lord. On my i~touch, I have a CANCER play list, this song is at the top of the list. The words express my journey and heart as I(we) am facing CANCER straight in the eye:

  • It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
    It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
    So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
    I'm in better hands now

    I am strong all because of you
    I stand in awe of every mountain that you move
    Oh I am changed, yesterday is gone
    I am safe from this moment on
     
    There's no fear when the night comes 'round
    I'm in better hands now

    It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
    It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
    So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
    I'm in better hands now

    Its like the world is silent though I know it isn't true
    Its like the breath of Jesus is right here in this room

    So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
    I'm in better hands now
    I'm in better hands now

Thank you all for your faithful prayers and support . . .

Resting in HIS arms,
Trina
