FINALLY...An Answer for Mom

For the past four months our family has been collectively holding their breath.  Each of us in our own way, waiting for the results of numerous tests that would lead us to an answer as to the nature of the 2 masses in mom's skull.

After viewing the biopsy slides here in Arizona, the doctors decided to send them off to Johns' Hopkins in Baltimore. Hoping that more of a research based hospital could give us an accurate diagnosis.

Well, the results are in:
No Cancer
No Fungal Tissue
No Infection

We are praising God for those words yet still do not have a definitive answer, yet a wait and see what happens in a few months when she will again undergo a CT Scan with and without contrast.

It is believed that she may have suffered some sort of skull trauma years ago that caused a bleed in the skull itself and that the tissue that shows up on scan is nothing more than old accumulative blood and tissue. They do not believe they will see any sort of change when they repeat the scan in a few months.

So, today, I personally thank you for your prayers, thoughts, comments, and words of encouragement during the past four months.

I believe I will now begin to breathe and maybe even start blogging again.  It is amazing how your body reacts to stresses and you don't even realize it until after the stressor has gone. I slept well last night, woke up refreshed and even felt better this morning.

Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14


  1. Hi Cindy, Praising God with you for this great report. I often wonder how many walk around with some sort of illness and don't even know it or know our Healer. I love this verse too.
    Blessings, Noreen

  2. Rejoicing with you in this news, Cindy! Thanks be to God.

  3. Am I a big weenie for falling on my knees, with fat tears rolling down my face, saying, "Thank you, God"?
    No words...just gratitude that your mom is fine.

  4. Hi Cindy,

    You visited my website/blog the other day and left a kind message and I came on over to do the same for you. I see this message about your Mom and immediately prayed and once I reached the portion where she is CANCER FREE I rejoiced.

    I pray that they find out exactly what is going on but by then I pray that she experiences the touch of our Great Physician, Jesus.

    Blessings and peace to you!
