Praise Be To God!

Since Dave's last appointment with the ENT specialist, we've been bracing ourselves for the worst. As she came into the examining room this morning, we were ready to hear those awful words. Instead, we heard, "Good news!" The results of the blood test did not reveal lymphoma! He did have slightly elevated white and red blood cell counts. But not to the degree to indicate cancer.

We still do not have an answer as to what is causing the enlargement of the lymph nodes. The next step is to see if maybe a dental issue could be causing an infection. If it's not dental in nature, then the specialist will proceed with the surgery to remove two of the lymph nodes.

I can't offer enough thanks to those who have taken the time to pray for us and send healing, loving thoughts our way. It amazes me that people who have never even met us, would support and lift us up during our time of need. Thank you!

Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
- Psalm 103:1-5

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so exicted and I can feel your relief and joy in your post. I love it. You must feel like such a weight has been lifted, shew!!

Of course I will keep praying for you guys since you still need to find out what is causing this. MMMMMM, God is so good. My church has been praying over a lady who had stage 4 cancer & the doctors said they could do nothing. She called last week to say she was cancer free. God is so wonderful, his healing power still thrives!! So happy to hear the great news today.

Love ya,
