Yesterday marked milestone's in Joy's recovery. Solid food was on the menu and she was able to eat two meals. She challenged herself by walking to the patient lobby. Then celebrated by making a 10 second phone call, while standing up. As the night drew to a close she looked forward to room mate free ward. However in the early morning hours that changed. The Lord allowed another break through in Joy's recovery.
To give Joy a sense of security, every night, after visiting hours, we left our texting up on our IPod 's . This would allow Joy an instant connection if the need arose. Most nights I slept right through the messages, however last night the Lord woke me at just the right time. Shortly after 3 a.m. she sent a message about her new roommate. This was the first time Joy had come face to face with the nasty disease of cancer. It made her start to look at her situation with acceptance and she said the words "I have cancer." On and off for the next 3 hours we prayed and talked. A new level of acceptance was born in this incredible woman, another step in her journey of recovery taken. Yes, while there is the diagnoses of cancer, our heavenly Father has one of cure. You sweet friend no longer have cancer growing in you, because you have had removed. On this Mother's Day 2011 there could be no more sweeter gift from our Heavenly Father.
Trusting you will still go home tomorrow. We will pray for mercy with travel and pain.
Praising with the break thru's and lifting up the request for "Faith."
