Being an Enigma

Taken May 29, 2011

Matt continues to be something of an enigma for the doctors. On our last visit, when we were informed that the chemotherapy wasn’t holding the tumors at bay, the doctor gently introduced the idea of hospice. I assured him we weren’t there yet.

On today’s visit the nurse practitioner was grinning as she admitted Matt is looking better now than she has seen him in the past. Stage IV Pancreatic cancer is known for the pain involved, yet Matt remains pain free. He’s even gained 8 pounds back! We don’t know the end of the journey, but we are thankful for these blessings along the way. Sometimes being an enigma can be a good thing!

    I love how our Father can confound the ‘experts’! Sometimes I think he gets great pleasure in showing his work to those who doubt. God Bless your family. I shall continue to pray that the wisdom of man would be defeated by the power of Jehovah Rapha-the God who heals!
