"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10
Welcome to Sara's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Sara and her family have appreciated all of your prayers, support, and words of hope and encouragement. Sara has had worsening lower back pain for several weeks now. She recently had an MRI which revealed a mass on her spine as well as lesions on her spine and pelvis with initial indications of cancer. In order to get an official diagnosis a biopsy and CT scans will be performed.
CT scan: Thursday April 26th at 11a PST (1p Central) Biopsy: Thursday April 26th at 2p PST (4p Central)
Prayer Requests: 1) It is Sara's first and foremost desire that God receive all of the glory and honor through this. 2) Complete healing 3) Perfectly performed biopsy and CT results of no spreading of the disease, and even better, that healing has already taken place! 4) Quick diagnosis and treatment, including clear guidance to the right doctors 5) That whatever issue is present would be easy to treat 6) That the mass can be easily and quickly removed in order for Sara to be free of pain 7) Peace, joy, and strength for Sara and her family (Restful sleep for all, special grace for Sylvie as she doesn't understand what's going on, etc.) 8) That Sara would be restored to complete health so that she can do everything she used to do with Matt and Sylvie (bend down easily, play, and run)
Already Answered Prayers: 1) Good blood work results 2) Matt and Sara's Moms were able to fly out immediately to be with Sara and her family
Sara and her family are also thankful for the blessing of Matt working for such a wonderful company that he was able to fly out immediately from a business trip in order to be with Sara upon hearing the news of her situation. Also, by God's design, Sara's brother is an interventional radiologist so he has been able to help guide Sara's steps through this and serve as an intermediary between Sara's family and the doctors.
Sara and her family want everyone to feel free to reach out to any one of them. They love the calls, texts, and messages of encouragement. :)
