MRI Scan all done…

Well that was an interesting one…40 mins lying still in the long tube of an MRI scanner, a giant equivalent of a packet of polo mints/lifesavers, listening to BBC Radio 3. The most relaxing thing I’ve done all week. #tracingtherainbow #zonedoutinatube #nowtheresults

We had a big celebration in a large farmhouse in Dorset with all our family 13 for our 50th Wedding Anniversary wonderful.nAdrian is suffering with his hip because of the bone cancer, and is on a medical trial medication which makes him feel very queasy, but is still managing to continue with his framing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you

      Just heard about you from a mutual friend Tony Jackson have likewise been going through similar attacks with Multiple Myeloma, one remission after stem cells for a couple of years returned October further treatment, chemo, but two much after three months back onto a gentler one. our Father has told me back then that despite some pain I was going to get He would restore me by Christmas. So I praised Him again and decided ‘it’s better to trust in the Lord than put confidence in man’ no still having treatment, but feel much better, Started walking again, then mile jog, then two, and on Sat. 3 mile slow jog. Hospital says myeloma has now attacked a bone in the neck and I need five dosses of Radio Therapy. That’s ok like you Jeremy I have learned very early in life to trust in the Lord and have felt these last few months very close and precious. Like you a number have been praying. We cannot lick this by will power but God can do the miracles, yep it’s ok medical treatment is pretty good, but I givfe Him all the glory, faced with the choice do I believe my signs and symptoms or the ‘foolishness of the Gospel’ Well you know the answer to thatl

      I pray that you will continue to stay close to Him who is able to do exeedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think or do….and witness like mad, cos He is real.
      God bless, Terry Lawton
