Last Update: I like the sound of that! August 8th the journey ended with Mike's Radiologist saying how happy he was that everything (from his knees to the top of his head) was CLEAR! Thanks be to God the great healer. I want to shout it from the rooftops. God would have been good either way- that's what I believe, but this one was a win I'll take! I am so, so grateful for all of your prayers, for all of you that have reached out to me with comfort and encouragement, to my faithful beyond measure Rescuer. Know that I'm around for anyone needing a prayer partmer, or just a silent friend cheering you on.


Update: Sorry I've been remiss in posting. This caretaker thing is a full time job and I already had one. We, I say we, as this is definitely a family journey, are at the 1/2 way mark in radiation and at the 2/3 mark for chemo treatments. He was told this week from the oncologist, that if this was the first time he had done a physical exam on MIke, that he would not know that there was anything there. It has shrunk that much. Praise be to God! Thus far, since diagnosis, he's only lost 6 lbs. (according to one scale) and that's remarkable. Mike says he doesn't want anything to eat, or doesn't feel like eating, but I cook and he pretty much, every time, eats what I have prepared. There are a myriad of emotions and feelings that run through your mind like a 12K NOT fun run, but other than that, we are doing really well.


I am grateful for the prayers that you have said on our behalf and would ask that you continue as we are brought into your mind. Much love and I'll try to post sooner, but can't promise. It's just one day at a time.








Could I ask my sweet praying friends for special prayers for my guy? It seems he has throat cancer. We have some fabulous physicians here in our town and of course the Great Physician is on the job too. “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16, ESV)




We are standing on faith and the prayer of believers. I am humbled that you would pray for him.

Thank you my dear one. I am sustained with the prayers being said for us. You are right about how difficult it is for caregivers. I’ll have my time soon when I can just lose it and know it’s all going to be alright, it’s not that time yet. Love to you!

I am so happy for your husband's outcome. Firm believer in prayer and I know we lose some loved one even thru prayer but this is exciting and wonderful news and testimony of God's grace. Some of us are going through times such as this. I need that comfort of prayer myself. You both need to celebrate, rest up my Cutie. Your both in my thoughts.

My dear, Jerrilyn. Just urgently need someone to have replaced you for a few days. You should be alone, and have a good rest. I walked this path with my mom and then with my dad. Our forces and capabilities are not unlimited, they need to be replenished ...
I continue to pray for you. Take care of yourself, my friend, I'm worried about your health. The husband is under the supervision of doctors, and you are alone. I hope children and grandchildren are with you.
Love and Hugs.

Hurray!!! Such great news after a long battle. I am delighted to hear he is CLEAR. And I understand what you are saying that with God it would be good either way. Big hugs to you too. Being a caregiver is a full-time job and takes a whole lot of energy. My handsome hubby has already said he will not be giving up the caregiver title. Rob says it is the only way he can boss me around and have a chance that I will do what I should be doing. I laugh every time he says it. Now go out and celebrate!

Thrilled for you both no end! Yes, God is great either way, but the uh-oh, still bad news way is a lot harder to claim a good God. The real blessing I see in all this for you guys is it has made you a stronger couple and stronger believers, just sorry for the adversity. Dancing in my den (sewing room).

I can't say thank you enough. I'm grateful for having you all cheering for us in this journey of a thousand miles. I'm exhausted, Mike's totally wrung out, but we are on the path to a "new" us.

Heavenly Father watch over these two beautiful faithful Christians. Hold them in the palm of your Hand and strengthen and enlighten them for the weeks to come. You are our Great Healer and we put our trust in your infinite grace and mercy. Thinking of you Jerrilyn as you travel alongside your beloved hubby. God hears the prayers of the faithful. Love Chris

There is a light at the end of this tunnel.. For a time, it felt like an oncoming train. He has improvement in his pain this week and that is a great relief. It's the little things....
Love, love, love to you all. I'm so grateful for your support.

Update: Last week, and the runner is crawling. This is so hard, but we DO have faith and know that this is but a short time. We found out yesterday that a PET scan will be run in August, so we just have to trust until then that it will all come back negative! My God is so much bigger than this and I trust Him and give it all to Him.
Thank you for your continued prayers. I do feel them and know that your prayers are being heard. A kiss to each of your hearts! (as our sweet Dilcea would say)

Oh yes, I have a running prayer list. Stay strong and keep cooking for him. I got down to eating instant oatmeal and a baked potato until I got a bite of not fully cooked potato so lived off oatmeal for a time. It slowly increased as time went on. Hopefully even if he isn't hungry or have that appetite your food will be more appealing and he remembers the good cooking taste. Diet is so important. I love praying for my online friends. So much of us need one another.

Love and big Hugs, my dear friend.

Jerrilynn - it is hard to care for one you care so deeply about. And see the struggles that they go through. Sometimes you get snapped at, but it is hard on them to be dependent on one that they love. Prayers continuing with you and your guy, and hoping things continue to improve.

Yes, it's very difficult to see your love be so vulnerable. He's a big fan of being petted by me, so at least he's enjoying that. :)

I know you must be reeling with this news, but I also know you have the best healer on your side. Your faith is strong and He always does what’s best for us, even if we don’t realize it at the time. Give Mike the biggest hug he can stand and then tell him how much I love you both, but we know God loves him more! 🙏❤️Toogie
