Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

8/29/2007

Good News, Good News

Ashely's scans are in and we just received the report. Its all good news! Thank you God! The remaining nodule in her right lung is shrinking. It is smaller than it was a month ago and that means if it isn't growing its not lymphoma! My smile is growing wider and wider by the minute.

The risk of it returning? That risk will always be there as long as she is on immunosuppresant drugs. She will be on those as long as she is living with another person's organs inside of her. So we do have a risk of it coming back, but it is a small risk. We will continue to scan her neck, chest, abdomen and pelvic areas every three months for the next year just to keep an eye on it, but her lymph nodes are all normal today and that is good news.

Today my heart is thankful and I imagine it will always be. God has brought our little Ashley through some very rough times in her life, but to see her today you would never know it. She looks and feels the healthiest she ever has and that is a testimony to the power of prayer and to the Father. Thank you for the part you play in her life. Your prayers for her are so appreciated and precious to this mommy's heart. Thank you for opening your hearts to our daughter and for loving her.

We are off to grab some lunch and then meet up with a friend. Have a great day. Trish

Trish, your mom called me with the news as soon as she heard that Ashley is cancer free. We both praised the Lord and I could tell she was estatic and my eyes filled with tears with overflowing joy for all of you.
God, once again, showed Himself through Ashley's healing of cancer. How Awesome~~~Have lots of fun with your friends~~~
much love~~Janiece

This is a P.S. to my comments~~
I called the church with the good news and they were very excited. I know Pastor Tom had a huge smile on his face and excitement in his voice when he announced it at Prayer Meeting~~~Janiece
