I can do all things through Christ

On May 1st we took my husband Bob into the emergency room for a headache that he had been having for about 3 weeks.  That morning he just couldn't go to work and decided he needed to go in and see what was going on.

After doing a CT scan they found multiple spots on the brain, after more testing they also found spots on the lungs.  After the biopsy he was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma.  The doctors have been very encouraging about the treatments that are now available for this type of cancer.  We just finished the radiation on the brain and on June 1st we will find out the next phase of treatment.

There have been so many blessings already in this new journey.  At first they told us he had lung cancer that had spread to the brain, the doctor was very surprised to find out what it really was and said this is much more treatable.  Bob has no neurological problems that you normally see with this many tumors, God has placed them all in areas that haven't affected anything other than the headaches.  He is in very good health other than this now which is a huge plus for him.  We have also seen blessings with help because Bob has not worked at all this month and we are not sure when he will be able to go back to work, he is the only income for us, but God has provided in so many ways. Each day we see new blessings.

We are praying that the Lord will use the new treatments to heal Bob of this and that we will be a testimony to each person we meet along this journey.  We would appreciate your prayers as we walk through this.

The Lord will fight for you;
You only need to be still. Exodus 14:14
