My day started with great news about my dad. He is no longer hooked up to a ventilator or a feeding tube. One of his doctors said yesterday "surprised healing". I love it when God shows off and there is no explanation to someone's healing other than Himself, the Great Physician. My dad will probably be in ICU for a few more days then he will be moved to a floor to begin some rehab. I am so thankful for the progress he is making each new day and the hope I hear in my mom's voice when I talk to her. I know the prayers of many on his behalf must have gotten to God's ears and He has shown my dad and our family mercy and grace during these past few weeks.
I went back to my surgeon yesterday and he explained things in more simple terms about my CT scan and my cancer markers going up. He said this new chemo I am on is a great one to use and for the first 3 treatments I will see my numbers rise, then after the 3rd treatment they should plateau and start to decline. He told me not to worry about the CA 125 marker (cancer marker) and trust that this chemo will work.
I am thankful it is the weekend and that I am home with Tony and we can relax and be together.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
