Isaiah 53:5 “The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
Well it is scan time again. We are leaving for Michigan tomorrow morning. I am so anxious to see what the results will show. Bailey has been doing so good with the new DFMO medicine she has been taking since December and I am praying like crazy she will be able to continue with this treatment. The plan is to do scans on Wednesday and Thursday, get results then decide what’s next. If scans are clear we will get to come home immediately and she will continue taking the DFMO with scans repeated every three months. If the little spot near her liver is still there or any new spots appear, she will have to stay in Michigan and get 5 days of chemo the week of February 4th along with Nifurtimox then we will get to come home to recover before having to repeat chemo again. Of course we are believing in CLEAR scans and NED (No Evidence of Disease) status again!
Bailey has been doing fantastic these past two weeks. Her counts have started to recover to the point of not needing any transfusions. She has not been this way since August of last year so this step in her journey is very welcomed. Her immune system is still pretty low so she hasn’t been able to attend school but hopefully in the next few weeks (if chemo is not needed) she will finally be able to go! Thankfully she has been keeping up with all of her schoolwork with Mimi (during the day while I am at work) and she made Honor Roll! I am so very proud of her….sometimes it is so hard for me to wrap my head around this amazing little girl I have. She has been through so much more than most people ever endure in a lifetime yet still she smiles, laughs and finds joy in the little things. She really is my hero!
Please say some prayers for us as we travel and of course for clear scans. Our faith is in the scripture and God’s promises…I know her healing will come to pass because He has already paid the price on the cross. The facts and/or our circumstances may change, but HIS word and HIS promises will always remain. He has already paid the price for Bailey’s healing so we are declaring that she will live a long and healthy life free from this horrible cancer. She will be a testament to His promises. We will not fear what our future holds because we are putting our trust and faith in the ONE that holds our future. This little girl of mine has such big faith…she was meant for great things and she will fulfill God’s will for her life….despite what statistics say. Thank you for your continued support and prayers…NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!
