HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Well, today is my daughter's 14th birthday.   Happy Birthday Hailey!!

Today is a good day.  It is a good day all around.   We are celebrating my daughters life and we are thankful for every additional year each one of us receives! 

 I was pretty bummed the other day when I wrote my post, but today is a new day, I'm Happy!  Jerry and I have had many conversations over the last couple of days and Jerry has been a huge encouragement to me.  Jerry feels very confident in the fact that he is healed.  That God has already healed him, and that he needs to walk in that faith.  Last night, in our "Life Group" that we are part of, the people there blessed me in ways that they don't even realize.  I have been depressed and less than encouraged lately.  I want my husband to be in my life for many many more years and hearing the Dr say the things he said to us was discouraging.  Last night in our life group I was reminded of God's healing power and that God is in contro…

FAITH

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. ~ Hebrews 11:1,3

This is the scripture that Jerry has been reading over and over these last few weeks.  Our dear neighbor sent this to us in a card, and I don't think she knew that it would be so impacting to Jerry and I.  We both are familiar with scripture and we "know" what the bible says, but this scripture was very powerful to us.  Jerry has been reading it every day.
Before our appointment today, Jerry kept saying "I think God is telling me to walk by faith, not by sight".  I almost hated hearing him say that....cause I knew that if that were true, that if God was telling him that....that it meant that the tumor was still going to be there.
Well, Jerry had his MRI this morning.  The tumor is still intact, and in fact, it appears t…

One Year....

Wow, I really can't believe it has been a year since this roller coaster ride started.  It has been quite a ride, that's for sure.  Jerry and I have learned so much over the last year, not just about health issues, the food we eat, what an Oligoastrocytoma is, or even about medication....we have learned how to cope.  We still struggle with the coping mechanism, but when one of us is down, the other is up....it works out OK that way. 

    A year ago today, Jerry and I were sitting at the hospital wondering what the "mass" in Jerry's brain was and wondering if it was anything to worry about.  We didn't know if it was an infection, or a tumor.  I remember being scared and confused and I remember Jerry was sitting in his bed talking on his phone to his employees, still running his business, hospital gown and all!

    Another memory I have is when Jerry's mom brought our son up to the hospital to see his daddy.  It was an emotional moment.  Brayden was 11 mon…
