We would like to thank you so much for the prayers that you’ve been offering to God for our daughter Elizabeta Sara. It has been one week exactly since we found out about Sara’s disease. Other then so much pain because of all that, we experienced an amazing God’s refreshment and the care of all of you who called, wrote, prayed and encourage others to do it too.
Thank you so much!
We would like to share with you what is currently happening.
Yesterday we had a magnetic resonance imaging and I have just found out that there might be one operation before the main operation. The reason is that the MRI is not as clear as the scanner image (which is very unusual and unexpected). According to the scanner image from last week, her condition seems to be much more serious (two surgeries are required), than on the MRI. The doctor who will perform the surgery says that says that the tumor might be benign after all, which, if so, are fantastic news! Tomorrow, there will be consulting with other doctors about the case. If two operations are needed, the first will be performed tomorrow, Thursday, Oct 11, and the other next week. If one operation is needed, it will be performed on Friday morning, Oct 12, 2012.
We believe that God is sovereign and good. He is with us and gives us strength, comfort and peace. He answers our prayers and does everything so that our trust in Him as such would grow. Our God is amazing.
During the last few days, Sara’s condition has been better, she is joyful, eats well, is in a good mood and feels just fine. For the first day or two it was hard for her to understand and accept the situation, but now she has an absolute peace – she knows that God can heal, that He works through the doctors’ hands and that things that ought to happen – will happen. This is exactly what she says now. I am thankful to God that He is the only One who can give such rest and peace in heart. We are sure that this is God’s answer to prayers.
Sara prayed like this today: “God, thank you that I feel better and that I keep getting better every day. Thank you that I will be cured soon. Thank you that you will either help me through the doctors or you will do a miracle. Thank you. Amen.”
What a trust in God!
Please, pray that God would lead the doctors tomorrow, so that they would make the right decision.
Pray for Jaroslava too, who is 8 months pregnant, that she would be strong enough to bear all that and that God would protect us and our child who is about to be born.
Thank you for being so supportive.
Yours, Sladjan and Jaroslava.
