Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry

I have a busy week ahead of me.  I have a brain MRI tomorrow morning and a CT scan of my chest and abdomen next Wednesday.  The MRI and CT scans are to see if the cancer has grown, increased, or spread.  Overall I’m feeling good, but I am feeling more fatigued this week. My chemo dose was increased this past cycle and I noticed I was more tired than previous cycles.  But the side effects are not as bad as my other chemos.  I am looking forward to my week off of chemo, which starts this Friday.  I’m also excited because it’s Anabel’s 2nd birthday on Saturday and it will be a fun weekend with Janie’s mom and brother visiting to help partake in the festivities.  Special thanks to Gerrit Benson and Mat Leslie for visiting this weekend and playing in a golf tournament with me and Tom Michaels.  This weekend was full of special moments and ringing ears.  In regards to my upcoming medical tests, all I can do is pray, hope and try not to worry.  I ask for your prayers, positive thoughts and positive vibes for the days ahead.

    My dear Kevin, once again my heart is crying for you and praying the Doctor’s can put your cancer in remission. Kevin I know you believe. “He that cometh to GOD must believe that he is: and is a rewarder to them that seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

    Love, Richard

    Always and in all ways in our heart and prayers. Such a special time for a 2 year old, fun times AND exhausting times but this is such a precocious stage of her life. Enjoy and Kevin-let life unfold as God has ordained. Love you all!

  3. Good luck with the tests Kevin, praying for positive results

    Kevin, just wanted you to know that you are not alone. You and your family are constant in my prayers. I pray that you will experience God’s faithfulness as a provider for all your needs. He assures us of His faithfulness in Isaiah 49:15,16:
    “Can a woman forget her nursing child,
    And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
    Surely they may forget,
    Yet I will not forget you.
    See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
    Your walls are continually before Me.”

    I believe the “engravings” on the palms of our hands are a gift from God to remind of us of His promise that “He will keep in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him because he trusts in Him.”
