He makes all things new...

As some of you know my mom has been battling stage 3 breast cancer since last January.  

The first ways my mom and dad fought was by a change of diet and mom drinking vitamin packed shakes mixed.My parents are both storng people of faith and they sure applied that daily!!!  Mom has "healing verses" that she read every day!  

A number of months in she finally went back to another doctor who referred them to an oncologist.  The oncologist got her on a chemo pill (less side effects then regular chemo) and the herceptin drip (a cancer killing drug.)  

My mom went to the oncologist today and the oncologist told them the news that she is in remission. My mom wondered if she could stop taking her chemo pills (since they did bother her some) and the doctor said she could!  

Thank you Jesus! that my beautiful special mom is in remission!!! Mom just had her 60th birthday on June 2nd on Sunday.  This news of remission is almost another type of birthday!  A new start with no cancer symptoms!  This is day one of remission!!  Today is the first day of the rest of her life!!!
