Answered Prayers from God!

Friday, July 17, 2009

Dr. Laman told me I'm cancer FREE! Praise God from whom all blessings flow... He's a great God, still doing miracles today! May He bless you all for your prayers and support! 5 more treatments and we are smooth sailing.

Matthew 17:20 (New International Version)
20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."[a]

This has been by far the hardest and most difficult thing that we have ever been through, separately and together as husband and wife. But for some reason when we found out that Ryan had cancer, after the shock set in, we knew God was in control and was going to turn this trial into something great; because that's what He always does! We put our trust in the Lord, and knew through this time, only a season out of our lives, that we could get through it with His help and strength. God was/is going to use our lives to showcase His power and glory. What better way to live, then to be used by our Creator?! We pray all the time for God to use us, (sometimes we don't really know what we are asking for), and I see that He allowed this to come into our lives, knowing ahead of time He would provide strength for us and we were going to trust Him. Our Lord always answers prayer! Through this time, we have grown closer to each other and to God. He has taught us things we may never have learned without going through cancer.
Praise God for His healing, power, strength and faithfulness!!! He is a great God, who still does miracles!

Thank you all for your kind support and prayers! They have blessed us, and we have not once felt alone in this trial. We knew you were there fighting with us. Please continue to pray as Ryan still has to finish out treatment. He has 5 left. Please pray that the treatments go smoothly, that he does not have many side effects from the chemo, and that he gets his energy back.

I will update again after treatment 8 on July 31st.

Best Blessings and Love from the depths of our hearts,
Ryan and Elanea

Half-way FINISHED!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

This was Ryan's 6th treatment! That means that he is half way finished!!! Praise God!
He was pretty nauseous all during treatment, but possibly because there was a bunch of food in the room. He doesn't handle the smell of food while recieving treatment well. But he got threw it, and came home for a 4 hour nap. He needed it!
Also, the nurses are so wonderful. We are all getting to know each other better, and one is even asking for prayer from us. We are both glad that she trusts us to confide in us and know that we are happy to pray for her.
May God continue to use us during this season in life!

Psalm 45:4
4 In your majesty ride forth victoriously
in behalf of truth, humility and righteousness;
let your right hand display awesome deeds.

Thank you all for your continued prayer and support. You are appreciated and we love you. May God bless you for your diligence in prayer.

PET Scan- July 13th.
Treatment 7- July 17th.

Best Blessings,
Ryan and Elanea
