I just went to St. Louis this past week for my 15 month check up. And need to update you all.
First things first, my MRI was completely clear! No tumor forming. No need for radiation of any kind! My brain even looked better and more settled than it did a year ago which, at that point, was 3 months after surgery.
It was an extremely positive and affirming visit. I have felt really good, especially these last few months. Physically and otherwise. To have doctors tell me that I am healthy and to continue doing what I’m doing was reassuring to say the least.
All is well! Praise God!
There is something about going to a place that is almost frozen in time for you. Something really special.
That’s what St. Louis is for me. My time capsule. A place I will continue to go back to each year for checkups, as far as I can see, only to rediscover, and potentially dig up for the first time, just what the month of October in 2018 meant to me and for me.
I was able to go to dinner with the manager of the hotel my family lived in for the month I was in and out of the hospital.
Her name is Stephanie. She went above and beyond with her compassion, helpfulness and care for me and my family in our time of severe distress. I love her. She will forever be apart of my story.
And know that we are not the exception. Every resident of that hotel is a recipient of her love and kindness
I am so glad we were able to honor her...and eat some delicious Italian food.
Remembering is important. Remember how present God was in our situation...and to see it with fresh eyes again. It’s a blessing I do not take lightly.
Even when I don’t see it, You’re working.
Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working.
It increases my faith and overwhelms my soul. And there is so much peace there (Matthew 11:27-30).
I am so grateful. For my doctors. For my hotel staff I got to see. For you.
For every way God is continuing to reveal Himself to be and show me He’s not done with me yet.
He’s not done with any of us. Far from throwing in the towel for our lives.
There’s so much more!
He’s after our hearts and will never let us down. Amen!
Until next time!
