Mom went to the her regular doctor on Monday.

She has not seen a doctor at all since she was diagnosed with her second bout of lung cancer last September. As of a month ago, she has been fighting a sinus infection as well as bronchitis. Since then, her lung capacity has gone done dramatically. She has been trying to fight the infection using all natural remedies.

So, Monday came, and she and Dad decided she would go on a regiment of antibiotics and breathing treatments as well as oxygen. This seems to be the only way to find out if the symptoms are truly an infection or if the cancer has, indeed, grown and increased in intensity.
Please pray specifically that the medication she is now on will reduce the symptoms and relieve her infection. Pray that her lungs would increase in capability, and that her
natural protocol will work to treat the cancer.

My dear Mother, has a strong faith. She is a testimony to so many of what God can do in some one's life.

You see, Dad and Mom were not supposed to make it this far. When I was very young they were on the verge of a divorce. Then God got ahold of them and changed their lives into something beautiful. I praise God He did this, for I would not be here otherwise.

Psalm 103:12-18
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, and its place acknowledges it no longer. But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children's children, to those who keep His covenant and remember His precepts to do them.

God bless you and your dear family. We will keep your mom in our daily prayers. God is mighty to save, and He answers prayers. Like you said, look how your parents "weren't supposed to be" together, and yet, WOW, God is amazing.

Amen, amen, and amen! What a good and gracious Savior we serve! And your folks are living testimony of that--as are you, Jen, Chris, and Missy and all of your families. What a legacy. What a God!

I love you ~
