First of all, thank you to those that continue to check in on our family. Saying I appreciate your love and prayer support is a serious understatement!
Gavin's recent MRI was awesome. In the words of Gavin's oncologist: no tumor, no changes, all good.
Praise God for His continued mercy on Gavin!
My heart always sighs in relief when we get good MRI news. I had a fairly difficult time in the waiting period between the scan and getting the good news several days later. Not hearing anything made me want to believe that everything must have looked good. But, there was a little (okay, let's be honest here...rather large) part of me that desperately needed the confirmation. I'll go a little further with my transparency and tell you that I was shocked by how wrapped up in the need-to-know-how-it-looked emotions I still was almost five years out from diagnosis. I guess I thought that if we were nearly five years out, I'd feel much more confident about it all. Perhaps the scans would have simply become routine by this point.
Yeah, not so much.
I'm a work in progress, carried along by a God that is patient enough to keep on working on me for as long as it takes.
And know that He wants to work on you as well.
May we all be open enough to let Him do a good work in our lives.
