Welcome to my blog dedicated to my Journey with Teal....Ovarian Cancer. This blog is where I will make updates to my treatments and tests....hoping to keep blog friends updated and answer any questions from visitors.

Do you still...

get surprised at the amazing-ness of God?

I do!  Saw my oncologist today.  I prayed that the Lord would give me peace, clear direction, and if possible, another idea for a clinical trial.  My doctor walks in the room and says that one slot of a new trial opened up yesterday and it is mine if I want it!

I was thrilled and amazed.  I still have to pass all the pre-testing but he doesn't feel there will be a problem.

I won't lose my hair, the side effects are seemingly mild....but there are steroids.  That is the only negative, but I am ok with it.

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and thoughts.  My husband and I both appreciate it.  I will keep you posted. 

What a wonderful anniversary present.  God is so Good.

Hi Ceekay, how wonderful to hear your good news! I am so happy for you that you qualify for the new clinical trial. Although I do not have cancer, I deal with other health issues and pain and your example of reliance upon our heavenly Father helps to build my faith. I hope you have a day with many joyous moments in it! Delisa :)

OK...I've been praying for complete healing for you but for today I'm going to consider this a HUGE answer to prayer along with you.

God is able...you know that. He also won't allow what you can't bear...you know that, too. Still~life can sometimes throw us curve balls. When it does I always try and remember to ask "What are you trying to teach me through all this, Lord?"

Prayers going up. Your present is almost ready.

Love to you~
