I had labs drawn on June 10 and met with the doctor on June 11. The Lord blessed with great results again. My white blood count is finally normal! I also had been praying that the Lord would allow my IGM protein count to go down to the 500 range. The Lord answered my prayer and it was 592!(Down from 860 in March). The doctor was very happy, and the external exam showed no swollen lymph nodes. She said that I didn't need to come back for 9 months! She said we'd have a lab 3 months after I had the baby! I was so happy to not have to go back to the Cancer Center this year. It really is an emotional experience every time I go to that place. The Lord has once again renewed my trust in Him, that He is in charge of our lives.

Just wanted to update the blog to say that the Lord is blessing us with another baby! The new little one will arrive in November around Thanksgiving, Lord willing. All doctor visits have rendered normal reports, and I will have a level 2 ultrasound on June 20. Upon hearing the news my oncologist said, "Congratulations!" To which I was glad. She added that she saw no problem with this pregnancy having any effect on the cancer to reoccur. God is merciful and kind to us.

God's Sustaining Grace

On February 28, 2008 I went to my eye appointment hoping to get released. The doctor whom I had been seeing last year was no longer at the practice, so I had to see a new doctor. This doctor said that he saw some "cells" in the eye and weren't sure if this was getting better or going away, since this was his first time seeing me. He explained that with this type of cancer that you can develop cancer in the eye. Not to alarm me, but just to let me know that he couldn't release me without seeing me again (in 4 months.) Well, I was alarmed! However, I didn't ask many questions, which made my fear worse. My 3 month blood check was still over 2 weeks away. I had to give it to the Lord, and not worry about the unknown. The Lord was faithful to get me through the weeks of waiting.

On March 10, 2008 I had my blood checked and praise the Lord, the best yet! Everything was normal except white blood 3.2 (3.5-10.5), which the doctor said was great. My IGM went down to 860! I asked her about the cells in the eyes and she was not concerned, yeah! I will be going back to have my blood checked on June 11.
