Trust in the LORD with all your HEART. Lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all thy ways and he will direct your path.

After many people asking me to give them more info on my HEALING, I have decided to have an update on my situation. My JOURNEY has taken me down many steps and paths since being told of a CANCEROUS TUMOR on the HEAD of my PANCREAS in MAY 2009. I am here to tell you that GOD has directed my steps all the way on this journey. That is why you see the scripture verse under the HEADING PICTURE on this BLOG. PROVERBS 3:5-6~~I wrote this VERSE on a CHALKBOARD in my kitchen and it stayed there until recently!

THE JOURNEY BEGINS~~~~~I was sent to a SURGEON for a consultation to remove this tumor. I prayed, read the WORD, and asked GOD for guidance for the right decisions to be made: Doctor, surgery, etc. This particular Doctor was very specific with me~~the operation and how serious it was~~If I don't do this now, I won't be here long~~~It will take me 6-12 months to recover, if nothing goes wrong~~~My quality of life won't be the same. I could go on and on.
When I left his office, I knew for the first time in my LIFE what the LOWEST of LOWs were. I could not speak..I felt the "spirit of death" trying to compass me

I felt led to see a different Surgeon. He took another CT SCAN. When I went to him for the consultation about the scan and what can be done, his first words to me were "IT's a good thing you didn't have surgery because you probably would not be here now." He proceeded to tell me that the TUMOR was also wrapped around my main artery running thru my body and also on the HEPATIC artery (which leads to the liver). These probably would have been severed at surgery(there is more detail on this but I won't go into it). Basically, I was INOPERABLE!

Because of being "INOPERABLE", this qualified me for a different type of treatment. You could not have anything else wrong with you!! I previously had bleeding on the stomach lining (the tumor caused this) and I had bled out 2 different times (near death, second time). This could not be a problem with this "chemo pill" they were going to give me. Basically, they held off treatment for a month....then the first healing happened! Doctors scanned me again to see about the bleeding area in stomach lining and there was an unknown barrier between the tumor and my stomach lining. The DR.s couldn't explain but it cleared the way for treatment to begin!
This treatment was given to me in COLUMBUS, OH that specializes in this RARE TUMOR. That was also another blessing..close to home! Doctor said it had only a 30% chance of shrinking it but the BEST CHANCES were in the first 1-3 months. Basically, nothing happened the first 2 months and the Doctor said she would leave me on the treatment for 2 more months. She said, it hasn't done anything so that doesn't look good. GOD HAD ANOTHER PLAN!! OVer the next 2 months, it started shrinking!! I was on this treatment for 8 months (the norm is 6 months)and the tumor shrunk almost HALF THE SIZE! (This is a picture of me at the 7 month of treatment) DO I LOOK SICK???

My last TREATMENT was JUNE 2010! The Doctors said I was doing so well then, they were giving me a break until they would put me on another treatment in the future. (these treatments can be hard on you in other ways). I have had 4 scans since JUNE 2010 and the tumor looked as if it were slightly smaller each time but the DOCTORS would say that had to be a MARGIN OF ERROR! WRONG!!!! MY last scan in AUG. 2012 shown the tumor as now JUST A LITTLE BIGGER THAN AN INCH in diameter! They finally had to DOCUMENT IT THAT IT WAS SMALLER AND NOT MARGIN OF ERROR!! I HAVE HAD NO TREATMENT IN OVER 28 months and I KNOW THAT I KNOW THAT I KNOW GOD HAD HEALED ME AND HE WILL RECEIVE THE GLORY!! My DOCTORS look at me in AMAZEMENT and SHAKE THEIR HEADS! I know I have a HEALING TESTIMONY to GIVE for the LORD.....I was given a DEATH SENTENCE but GOD has given me LIFE! BY HIS STRIPES, I AM HEALED! Thank you LORD for you are THE GREAT PHYSICIAN!

  17. Oh Roxiegirl, thank you for sharing more of your testimony with us! I thank the Lord for healing you and give Him the glory right along with you my friend! I'm so happy our paths crossed and that I get to call you my friend and SISTER! XOXO

  18. Roxie~ Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your tender words to share with me on my blog. I am filled with joy to hear that your healing has taken place by the Mighty Lord God and Jesus our Savior. Your testimony is sweet to my ears as this has lifted my faith too in the Lord for my dear son's Austin's healing as well. Today, we took him to the Children's Hospital in Seattle because we were told he might need surgery, already I feel God's presence as they ordered another x-ray and changed their mind. He does not need surgery. They placed a special cast on his arm to use gravity to pull the humerus back into place. I loved how you put on your chalkboard proverbs 3:5-6 as this too has encouraged me to just TRUST without trying to understand the why. I will pray for you Roxie everyday for your continued health and God Bless You Roxie.

    You look so beautiful!

  27. Thank you for sharing your story and blessings here. God is great! You and your blog are beautiful n inspirational ~ a blessing to me! Praying for your continued health n happiness.

  28. Oh Roxie, We have such a wonderful Lord and Savior who loves us and will direct our steps into divine health and all the blessings of God if we will just come into relationship with him and let him lead. I am so glad you know this and have experienced it for yourself. I had healing of a growth on my body that literally dropped off. A faith stand can be stressful because our flesh wants to look at what we see, but we have to look with spiritual eyes and walk it out till the manifestation comes.....and it will come. Thanks for your testimony. Continued blessings!!!Lisa
