Dear Family and Friends,As some of you may already know, Sandi has been undergoing a series of tests over the past few weeks to evaluate some lumps at the base of her neck. The wait and the unknown has been quite challenging for her, but today we finally got the diagnosis. In simple terms, she has lymphoma. For those that want a more detailed diagnosis, she has Diffuse Large B-Cell (non-Hodgkin’s) Lymphoma.
While that is certainly not the outcome that we were hoping for, we have a sense of peace since we know that Sandi is in the hands of a loving God. Plus, we are blessed with an excellent medical facility in our community – in fact, Sandi works as a volunteer at the Emory Johns Creek Hospital.
There are still lots of unanswered questions at this stage. What is the treatment? How long will it last? What is the prognosis? Which oncologist should she select? Will she lose all her hair? (That last question never bothered me much, but rest assured it is a big question for her since she has already started shopping for head gear and wigs.) She has also already started a blog to record her journey – you can find it at https://sewinggal.com/ – you can leave encouraging comments for her on the blog as well.
We believe in the power of prayer and so invite you to join us that God would do a great work in and through Sandi throughout this entire journey. And we rest in the promise of Jeremiah 29:11 which says “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
Thanks for all your love and support,
