But now, O Jacob{Jessica}, listen to the Lord who created you.
O Israel, the one who formed you says,
“Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
2 When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
3 For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:1-3

Love is louder than cancer

Dear precious blog readers! I am very humbled by the outpouring of your love that is visible in your posts, "likes", calls, cards and phone texts. I want you to know that I have read your posts, seen your shares and your likes. And Jason has filtered phone calls and texts, and shared them with me also. A quote I have saved on my refrigerator door was given to me on an amazing gift and the quote reads, "love is louder than cancer!" And today I have found this to be more true than ever. Your heavenly cries for prayer, your friendly reminders of your presence and helping abilities, your fountains of encouragement and your countless offers to help in anyway: have spoken LOVE LOUDER than Cancer. Thank you. In times when we didn't know what was going on, whether it was 2:00am this morning of 6:30pm this afternoon we knew you all were loving us. We knew you were cheering us on all in the name and will of the Father!

Here then is a medical recap of what is going.
I have had many tests, CAT scan, Chest X-ray, EKG, Urinary Analysis, MRI, and an EEG.  Each of these tests were to seek to answer the questions, and "did I have a seizure?", "and  if so why?" These tests have revealed that there are no cancer metastasis on or in the brain. This is good news! The EEG did reveal seizure activity, but we are still uncertain why.  Further test including a spinal tap will be done this morning in an attempt to give us some answers.  I will receive a second blood transfusion and hope to be discharged this afternoon.  Thank you for the prayers, calls, and text.  I may not be able to respond to each of them but know that I have read each of them and am grateful.  Excited to go home!



  1. Jess, My thoughts are prayers are with you! Hoping you get to come home soon!

  2. "Blessings" to you and your family!

  3. I pray for you every single day... by name... he hears. Amen
