I have some super Sunshine for this week and it all has to do with Lucy. Below is taken directly from Lucy's blog,
Lucy had a weigh in. Drum roll......... 17 kilos!!!!! That's 37.4lbs, baby! 38 lbs is what Lucy weighed the day she was diagnosed. February 23, 2011. She is almost there. With the way she has been eating lately I bet she hits it by next week. I am going to buy stock in Eggo's waffles and syrup.
The best news of the day is that her most recent pathology and cytology reports came back and there was NO sign of cancer or infection in her brain. When the holes were drilled in her skull the fluid that was expelled was a little questionable. I haven't really mentioned it to anyone because honestly, it was just easier to not talk about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the room once Dr. B told us the news. Thank you God! We still don't have an answer as to why she retained the fluid in the first place, which unfortunately means that we don't have a definitive way of preventing it from ever happening again. We will be standing vigil though. Always looking for changes.
This is totally God's hand here. If you recall, Lucy had quite the scare only in June as she was deathly ill and her mom thought she was going to die. Lucy was blind, having seizures and the doctors thought the cancer had returned. They even did a scan that showed the cancer had returned and they had given her no hope. Only later did they look again at the scan and started questioning their judgement. With many, many people praying all over the world, Lucy's eyesight returned and the doctors saw that there was NO cancer in her brain. Since then she and her family have been on quite the ride as they have had to deal with seizures but the most amazing news is this new post from her mom. There is NO sign of cancer!! PRAISE GOD! You can read it all here in The Post That's Needs To Be Read If you are interested in reading the whole story, please visit Lucy's blog and read the posts put up in June and the last post from May.
I'm linking up with Summer for The Sunshine Project.
Exodus 15:1-3 NIV
“I will sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
The horse and its rider
he has hurled into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name.
Praising and praising GOD!
