Good News!!!

I promised an update on Becca, and I had no idea what an amazing update it would be! The doctor called yesterday to report that whatever was in Becca's brain..the lesion/tumor/aneurysm/ GONE. In the words of the doctor, it has "taken care of itself." Or, in other words, God answered  our prayers and healed my sister. I know it seems a little crazy, but they went from being almost sure that she had a tumor and would need surgery, to saying that it was some sort of aneurism that would probably need surgery to repair, to saying that her brain is completely normal.Whatever was there is now gone, and she does not need surgery, treatment,or even medication. Wow!
I'm looking back on the past month and a half, and remembering SO many prayers I prayed, asking God to  do just this. Asking him that it not be life threatening, then asking that she not need brain surgery, and even daring to ask that he remove  the lesion completely.  And, although I asked and believed that he could do all of these things, I  am still in a bit of shock that he did. I know that there may be medical explanations for what happened, or there may not be. We will never know exactly what happened. But, medical explanation or not, God healed my sister, and I am thankful. 
Thank you again for your prayers. Please remember to thank and praise God for this amazing answer!!!

That is awesome! Our mom's support group spent time on Tuesday praying for her, so it will be SO fun going this Tuesday and telling them this news. We'll be celebrating God's faithfulness up here too!
