“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”—-Hebrews 11:6
Thank you for being patient while we took time to understand and process our INCREDIBLE appointment yesterday. I look forward to going into more detail as we get further into this next season but for now here are the “cliff notes”!
1. No chemo
2. Still not sure if area in question is actually tumor
3. UTSW has advanced research imaging to help determine whether or not there are tumor cells having a party or if it really is just “nothing” (Brandon will be the recipient of those tests in the near future like hopefully next week)
4. IF there is a group of abnormal cells trying to cluster they are very slow growing and there is actually a promising treatment that Brandon would qualify as a candidate (an inhibitor drug not a chemotherapy)
Read here for more “science” and info on the new quarterback of our team Dr. Elizabeth Maher:
This appointment was nothing short of miraculous for us at many different levels and I look forward to sharing those insights over time! For now, we REST in faith that the God who has guided us EVERY step of the way has not forsaken us even here. He is in every detail reminding us that when we SEEK Him we FIND Him and when we FIND Him we REST in Him and when we REST in Him….He HEALS us and RESTORES every part of us.
Thank you for praying for us and walking alongside us….somehow I think that may be the point, right? That we are all in “this” together! Our prayers for CLARITY and DIRECTION were answered beyond comprehension.
More updates to come….for now…..share this post if it has brought you HOPE…..and LOVE those around you as fiercely as you can!
