Is it well with my soul?

As I sit here and type this blog...Zack is on the computer listening to a Drum & Bugle Corp Band play "It Is Well"...I can't hold back the tears any longer, the floodgates are open. My Dad's test this morning came back "normal" which you might say, "good!"...but the Doctors all said that if the test on his stomach/intestines came back normal, that the problems he is having most likely are from the spread of the cancer. They confirmed for my mom that the cat scan showed the cancer had spread to the lymphnodes. They also said the cancer is probably causing all the pain in his spine and abdomen. When she asked "what do we do now?" they told her to just take it one day at a time...the focus is going to be getting him to keep food down right now, before he can leave the hospital. Then, they'll discuss treatment for the cancer.

I have such mixed emotions. I cannot imagine being without one of my parents, but then I hate to see my Dad suffering so. Where is that peace like a river---I need it to tend to my soul right now...my sorrow and emotions are waves that overwhelm me. "Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, even so, it is well with my soul".

We will be coming in town mid-afternoon tomorrow. I need to be at the hospital with my Dad and I need to allow my Mom to get some rest. Please continue to pray and I will post updates as I can.

5 sweet friends had to say...:

Man Tracey...I am so sorry about all this. I checked your blog before I went to bed last night to see if you had posted anything, but this wasn't there yet. I hardly know what to say. My prayers are already there, I just wish I was so I could hug you! I'll talk to you soon.

I'm sorry, Tracey. You are so blessed to have such a wonderful family.....I know this must be hard for you. I will continue to pray for the peace that passes all understanding....for the strength that only God can provide....for the comfort from the Great Comforter.

God is with you and your family, Tracey.

Tracey -
We pray that you will sense God's peace around you and your family - you are loved. I asked a friend who works at the hospital to "look in" on your Dad. He looked in on us when my Dad was there and his wife is a dear sweet choir member at FBC/J.

Nothing else to add but to echo everyone else's thoughts and prayers. Love you so much, sister!
