♥ news ♥

mamaw ended up going to the doctor yesterday for her MRI because they were worried the weather would be too bad today....it was a good thing because they actually closed the office today due to ice. dr. horn (her oncologist, who just happens to be her homeboy, ha!) called this morning to let her know the spot was so small he could not positively identify it as cancer. given her history with the two cancers however, he did think this is most likely the case.

her next step now is to return to his office on monday and have a biopsy by needle aspiration. if they are not able to get the biopsy that way, they will have to make an incision and do it surgically. this isn't great news because we know the cancer is more than likely back, but it is much better news than we thought it would be. it's always so touch and go and the waiting game is torture. i talked to mam and pap both this morning and they are in good spirits considering all they have on their minds. so now, we wait.

But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure. Romans 8: 25

Dealing with the effects if the fall (Genesis 3) is something that we will never get used to. We can only wait in anticipation for the glories that are waiting for us. I'm so glad that this is going to be a "smaller" deal than it could be. And I think you are right, God does give certain incidences to certain children of his because they are the ones who bring him most glory in it. Your memaw is probably that one, and that's a good thing. I'll be praying for you all. Looks like we are not going to be at school any this week, so let's think of a cool field trip we can take 3rd grade to like paradise cove...
