Arlene!..By His Sripes

Malachi 4:2....But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;

As you know, it has been a tough couple of years for us. Actually it has been 3 years, but the 1st one wasn't so bad, with the exception of the ugly word cancer and all of the surprise and fear that goes with it. The reason the 1st wasn't so bad we thought everything was taken care of. Unfortunately, it wasn't. The doctor gave me the wrong medicine. Of course it wasn't the doctor that I have now.So today I went to get the Avastan that I get on Thursdays. The port I have has not been working properly for the last 3 weeks, so I kind of had a panic attack at home. I was in the tub and didn't have the strength to get out. Thank God I waited until Barry got home so he could help me out. I have to say that was the 1st time I have cried, but it was so hard. I realized I was nervous over the port because if it did not work today, I would have to have a test to make sure it was in the the proper place and if it wasn't I would have to have it replaced, which meant a minor surgery.
I got there and the blood came flowing out quickly. Thank the Lord. Then I had to know if the blood levels were good enough for the Avastan, they were fine. I got the Avastan. Today was the last day that I had any appointments and I was out of some of the medicine. Debbie, his office assistant, said you really need to see him. I said I am so tired I don't think I can hold my eyes open long enough to sit there. Sometimes it is hours. Debbie loves us so much, she put us in right away. God's favor.
The doctor walked in the room shortly and shook our hands. How are you doing, he asked me. He said you look good and I see that you are wiggling your feet. That's a good thing. He checked my eyes and asked how I was walking and then checked the strength of my legs two different times and then said you are strong. He then had me lay down and he checked the liver. He was elated at how good I am doing. He said you are doing amazingly well. He also told us after checking to see if I was having headaches and so on he checked my eyes to make sure there was nothing there. He said the brain tumors are no longer an issue because they are gone.
He looked at Debbie and told her, this lady is going to make it. Translation: You shall live and not die and declare the works of the Lord. Psalms 118:17 (KJV). I didn't die, I lived and now I am telling the world what God did. Psalms 118:17 (The Message Bible)
Just last week even though I already knew I said to Barry, it would just be so good to have this healing validated. The Lord told me that he had already validated it, but still it is such a good thing to hear it from the doctor. Look what the Lord has done!
