The Miracle we prayed for!

The past few days have been hectic with our 2nd school term starting and the project I'm working on in the final days before it has to be handed in, but I just want to take the time and tell you the most wonderful news.

My mom had her latest scans on Thursday afternoon, and there is not a sign of cancer anywhere in her body! Isn't that totally out of this world? God is absolutely awesome.

I don't think it has hit me yet, we've been much calmer about the news than I ever expected. It doesn't lessen the feeling of relief though, I just think it's going to take some time for the truth to settle in and shake us up with joy!

Her previous scans, early in February, showed the tumors were much smaller than when they were first noticed, but there were some troubling marks on the bones of her skull. The doctor did extra tests and told her that he suspects it arthritis. That might be what is keeping us back from going on all out of our skins because of the news. I know it sounds skeptical, but I don't trust it all that much. She also has one more chemo on Tuesday, and then regular check-ups during the next few months. Will keep you updated!

Thanks SO much for all your comments on my previous post, I haven't had time to sit still at the pc to visit all your blogs, but this week it should go easier to have some "me" time. :)

UPDATE - 27/10/2010:
So many things has happened since I wrote this post. The short version is that both my mom and dad have passed away since then. My dad died 5 months after his lung cancer was diagnosed - on Easter Sunday morning, 12 April 2009. My mom passed away during the night of Easter Sunday the following year, 51 weeks after my dad. I miss them something terribly, but their legacy lives on.
