Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
If you know anything about Dixie, you know that she was diagnosed with colon cancer in February.
If you don’t know anything about her, it’s time to catch up:
When I last wrote about my friend, I was cooking like her life depended on it.
And wondering whether she would be incontinent forever.
But then the blessings began to flow on two creatures here below.
On a little beagle and me.
Dixie is now pooping like a normal dog – well, almost like a normal dog. And that is a huge blessing right there.
But there’s more.
Wednesday morning I took her for the 4th of 6 chemo treatments – each 3 weeks apart. As per the protocol, her oncologist did an ultrasound and some chest x-rays prior to the treatment to make sure the treatments have been working. If not, he’d switch to something else.
The ultrasound results?
There is no sign of recurrence in her bowels or lymph nodes – lymph nodes are all of normal size.
The doc said a radiologist would look at her chest x-rays to confirm but he saw nothing obvious on them.
So he proceeded with injection number four.
And then yesterday his assistant called with the radiologist’s findings:
Her lungs are completely clear!
Good food, exercise and chemo are keeping the cancer at bay.
And Love. Lots of Love.
Love is healing her.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow…
She’ll get the final two injections and then she’ll just be monitored from there.
Hopefully for many happy, healthy years to come…
