…and He healed them.

These are the words cut out in ply that rest over a door frame in my sister’s house.  The full verse is Psalm 107:20 – He sent his Word, and he healed them; he rescued them from the grave.

I had a consult today with Dr Brad, to get results from my bloods and urine tests earlier this week.  All my results are perfect for a healthy person, and there is no evidence of active cancer either in my blood or urine.  Something has happened between last checkup and this week.

I went in to the consult with a shop-a-docket list of questions about future treatment.  We discussed none of it, as there was no point.  It seems we don’t need to talk stem-cell transplant or further chemo at this point.  The only thing we did discuss was dropping the chemo I am on now down to nothing over a few weeks.  I asked if I could stop now, but Dr Brad felt more comfortable finishing this cycle off to make extra sure.

Whatever.  I think healing has happened.  I don’t know what to do now.  Still in shock a little bit.

Based on past experiences, the natural tendency is to be skeptical and cautious.  But I think I can go ahead and live with the belief that I am not sick.  See what happens, or doesn’t happen.

Since the last lot of results, I have been praying believing that there is power in God’s word to heal – as it says there is.  Though I don’t think there is a formula to conjure up healing, the absence of cancer markers indicates my body is becoming less dead.  What happens in the future is irrelevant in some respects – these results are significant.  I could not have got a better report.

What happens next I don’t know.  Dr Brad doesn’t need to see me for another month or two.  I feel like I have been rescued from the grave, again.  Will write more later, I have some celebrating to do.
