Latest on Anne Marie........

Hey all you wonderful prayer warrior bloggin' friends!

I want to share an update on Anne Marie......When I spoke with her last week she was sooo appreciative of your prayers and just the thought of prayer warriors from all parts of the globe standing with her means so much and encourages and strengthens her faith!  She sent me an email this week thanking you for your continued prayer, but before I share her words with you, I want to bring you up to speed on what's been going on. Last week was a roller coaster week for Anne Marie and Mark.  My sis, Diane, was with them helping out and kept me informed so specific prayers could cover Anne Marie.  Anne Marie was prepared to begin a regimen of various aggressive chemo treatments last week (as I posted in my last update), but out of left field, her pre-chemo heart tests reported that something was wrong with her heart!......This report came as a total surprise and as you can imagine "piled-on" what was already a difficult time for them.   Her chemo treatment plan was halted because the type of treatments ordered for her can be hard on the heart and a heart cath was performed last Friday to determine what was going on there.  BUT, after earlier heart test reports indicated heart problems, her cardiologist was happy to report that the heart cath showed that her heart is perfectly fine!!  PTL!!!  What began as a bad report became a GOOD REPORT!! ........  Rejoicing in the good report of the Lord!!  Hallelujah!!

Anne Marie was cleared to begin her treatments......They've been "here" before (nine years ago) and have seen Him work miracles in the midst of the storm!  We covet your continued prayer support as we stand upon the healing promises of God for her full recovery and total healing and that her treatments have no adverse side effects and do her body good and no harm!!   In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!

I want to take a moment to introduce you to the precious little guy in the photo above with Anne Marie........that's Mark and Anne Marie's precious little miracle - Joshua! Oh, and I must say that he's the light of my sister, Diane's, life....let me tell you!!  Mark and Anne Marie were told nine years ago when she was first diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer that they most likely would never have a child of their own due to early menopause that would be brought on by the extensive chemo she would have to undergo.   Anne Marie and Mark stood upon the promises of God and in the face of tremendous obstacles and mountains of oppositions, believed in the One Who makes the impossible, possible and in faith believing became pregnant and gave birth to  a perfectly healthy baby boy.........little Joshua came screaming into this world two years ago.......he is a TOTAL MIRACLE and a constant reminder of the faithfulness of our God!!  Hallelujah!!

The scriptures tell us that...

And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb 
the word of their testimony.....
Rev 12:11


Here's a few words from Anne Marie's update email I want to share with you.......

"Please tell everyone how much I appreciate their prayer support.  We are praising the Lord for the good report we got last Friday when I had the heart cath and they said my heart is normal!!!  I start back on chemo tonight and will be on it for one week then off a week and will continue to this for at least 12 weeks (I'm not sure what the long term plan is).  This morning I had the first shot of the bone building drug.  I'll have this every 6 weeks as it can be rough on the kidneys.  Thursday I'll have the drug that is very effective in fighting this type of cancer but this is the drug that can affect my heart so they will watch my heart closely with echocardiograms every 9 weeks.  I SHARE THESE DETAILS SO YOU AND THOSE SPECIAL PEOPLE WILL KNOW HOW TO PRAY.  I'm trusting that according to Psalm 91, I'm protected and no drug will do my body harm!...........You all mean so much to me and Mark - thanks for your love and prayers!"

What a cute guy! And Joshua is the Lord's reminder that He is constantly watching over His children. Working mysteriously that this world would never understand. Continuing to pray with you for your niece. God bless all of you and protect you.

It is always a huge blessing and encouragement to hear good news and to see how GOd is working in someone's like like theirs. I don't know her but she becomes more real when I read her story and I will pray!!

Continuing to storm the heavens on behalf of Anne Marie. Please continue to keep us posted.

Thank you so very much for continuing to support, encourage, pray, and love me. You are truly a treasured friend.

Macy continues to cling to this world. She seems peaceful, yet somewhat disoriented. It is so hard when we reach this point with our furry kids.

Blessings, hugs, and prayers,
