A Life Changed

Since I added this bit about "A Life Changed" on the blog I created for my sister, I thought I would add it to my blog as well. I created this blog probably a year ago, but never did anything with it. It has new meaning today.

This is a picture of Jan with Aubree. This picture was taken on Halloween, 10/31/07. We had no idea that she would be fighting this fight just a mere 13 days later. As I sit here tonight, she is doing amazingly well. She has finished the first phase of her treatment consisting of radiation/chemo. On February 11 she will return to M.D. Anderson for testing. We continue with "Hope for Each Day!" Nothing is too Big for Our God.

On November 13, 2007 a very special person's life changed drastically. Jan a/k/a Grammy had emergency brain surgery for what we would later come to find out was glioblastoma multiforme. As this is my sister (baby, at that) it has been amazing to watch God at work here, not just in her healing process, but he has given her the FIGHT and the GRACE that she needs to fight this battle. I think I can safely say that this is not a road that any of us would choose for Jan to have to walk (or anyone else for that matter), but God did not give us that choice. But, there is a reason God has allowed this, so we will do whatever is necessary to FIGHT right along with Jan, as well as love and support her the best we know how.

Praise the LORD, I tell myself; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, I tell myself, and never forget the good things he does for me."Psalm 103:1-2
