MRI update: Noah's oncologist looked at the scan and said, "I'm pleased with this one." She said there were less enhancements on the MRI last week than the one he had in December. She did confirm the "spot" and wants to keep an eye on it, but it will not affect his treatment at this point, and she could not say for certain what it is. He will have another MRI after his last scheduled treatment in May. The neuro-surgeon has not been able to see the scan, but as soon as he does his nurse will call me with Dr. Wellons' opinion. We are pretty much still playing the wait-and-see game in this situation. But at least we know we have 2 more treatments planned, and then we can go from there.
While reading today, the story of Lazarus jumped out at me and as I read I was encouraged. Jesus said to His disciples about Lazarus,"this sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God's glory so that God's son may be glorified through it" (John 11:4). Jesus loved Lazarus, and yet He tarried, and essentially allowed Lazarus to die only to raise Him from the dead, "so that you may believe" (John 11:15). I don't doubt His power and ability to heal, but I also know that He may tarry and He is often "slow to act" according to my watch. As I wait on the Lord to completely heal my son, I am encouraged by the letters and comments I receive from so many of you who are praying and believing with my family for a miracle. And I see how even now God's is glorified through the work He is doing in Noah. Thank you for all you are doing and have done to show us the love of Jesus.
