If you haven’t read Chapter 1 of this journey, you can do so here.


As believers, we know that God is alive and active today. God’s promises are for us now and forever, not just for the people who lived during the old testament days. Those promises are found in the scriptures.

We read in 2 Corinthians 12:9:

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

In Jeremiah 30:17 we read:

“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,” declares the LORD.

Philipians 4:19 says:

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.”

I could go on and on and on. These are just a few of the MANY verses we repeated to ourselves over and over again the past few weeks. It was a reminder that no matter how dim things got around us, the hope and promises of God were always an anchor and firm foundation for us.

These promises kept us strong and operating in a state of positivity and faith instead of a state of fear and death.

So when the doctor told us his diagnosis, we knew that it was only the state of the situation in the earth realm. But we serve the one who is the GREAT Physician and we knew that He would be faithful to deliver Holly from this tumor one way or another.


Holly continued to be monitored at the hospital on the Sunday following her MRI. Normally they would release the patient back home until the day of their scheduled surgery.

Due to the swelling and fluid build-up in her brain, they didn’t feel like it would be safe to release her and they kept her hooked up and full of strong pain medication to give her some sort of temporary relief.

Late Sunday night, they transferred her to yet another hospital. This move was to place her where a neurosurgeon worked who specialized in this specific tumor and tumor location.
