Prayer - From Mrs. Niewenhuis - Nov. 4, 2016

Good morning, dear family and friends,
After a head CT scan last week Thursday, followed by an MRI of my brain on Wednesday night, the doctor phoned yesterday to let me know that there is a small spot of cancer on my brain. Thus, all the places that this type of lung tumour metastasizes to, are involved...lymph, bone, and brain. I trust this is the end of the bad news. On the 23rd (George's birthday), I will have appointments to arrange for one high dose of radiation on the brain spot on the 24th. (This involves another CT scan, a face mask being made, etc.). Because I have had no fevers and no headaches, Dr. Lau was surprised that anything showed up at all. He assured me not to worry about this tiny invasion. But it feels like another punch in the gut.
Praise the Lord that today I have NO appointments and am free to enjoy the incredible weather that God is giving us this late in the fall. Alice-Marie and I plan to drive to Kananaskis with a picnic lunch and be refreshed by a mountain stream. She has been a real gift and a blessing to me this week.
Needless to say, we continue to covet your prayers and support.
Have a blessed Friday.
(PS: If Mrs. Niewenuis does not respond to emails or calls this week it's because her and George are away)
