Today is a "Victory Day" for my mother who has been fighting for her life since her diagnosis of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia on September 17, 2008.
Today was a "Victory Day" because my mom had her Hickman line/Port surgically removed from her body. Since September 18th, 2008 she has been living with the tangible and uncomfortable reality of her illness through her port. Now she is free from the discomfort of foreign objects hanging out of her body, free from flushing her lines daily and free from weekly re dressings.
Today is a reminder of God's faithfulness.
It is a reminder that God has prolonged my mom's life and used modern medicine to do so.
Today is a reminder that God is in control.
After spending a total of 70 days at this Hospital since September my mom is feeling tremendous thankfulness, relief and high emotions about what this season has been for her.
As you can see in the picture, my mom is looking and feeling good. And her hair is growing in curly, the opposite of her previously straight hair!
I personally continue to be thankful for your heartfelt concern, encouragement and prayers.
If you have not been invited to follow my mom's blog and would like to do so please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invitation.
And if you feel led, please lift up a word of praise for the miracle that has occurred in my mom's life.
