Chemo - Round 4 - Scan this week!

Dear Friends and Family,

Last week Mark finished his 4th round of chemo. He was a bit sick but not terribly and is very thankful that it is now behind him.

I apologize for not blogging last week and have had some people ask me about it - the week got away from me so quickly!

This week-end went well - every Saturday we have softball games and since Mark has been sick he is the coach and doesn't play. I got to the game late to find my husband running from 1st to second in the middle of the game! What?? Yes, he played a game of softball! Should he have? Probably not. He was very exhausted afterward but I'm happy that he had fun and got to get out there with the guys!

Sunday was a huge blessing to me as I watched Mark sing on the praise team at church as they sang Chris Tomlin's "Our God" and we worshiped together singing "
Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!"

Tomorrow is a huge day for us! Mark goes in the morning for a CT scan. Someone ask me why they are doing the scan and what they are looking for. Very simply they are looking to see if:

1. The cancer is gone!
2. The cancer is shrinking
3. The cancer remains the same
4. The cancer has grown
5. The cancer has spread

Obviously our prayer request is for either number one or two - we know that "God is our Healer" and we know that God has a plan and tomorrow will tell us where we are and what to expect. Please join with us in prayer as we implore our heavenly Father for a great test result and we prayer that in all things God will get the glory.

God's faithfulness and goodness has been constant to us in all things through this time in our life. I can't begin to list all of the ways that God has blessed us and all of the people He has sent to us in our time of need to meet the very need at that very minute!

I will send a post after we know the results of the scans. We covet your prayers for complete healing in Mark's body and for our faith to be increased every day.

We feel the prayers and we love and appreciate you all,

Mark and Lee

"Great is Thy Faithfulness"

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

  1. Thanks, Lee. I was wondering when the scan would be. I'm glad they didn't keep you waiting. I'm praying for a great report tomorrow! Love, G
