Not really, but that was pretty cool. I was very anxious about how my story would be shared-would it be mostly about my surgeon? Would it focus on social media entirely? Would they air what I had to share about my Faith? Would they use the interview clips from today or yesterday? (They used today’s-I looked way better yesterday haha). So many unknowns. But they did such a beautiful job and shared the message that I wanted to share! This is not about me, or brain cancer or social media. It’s about glorifying God in whatever way he is wanting to use us. I look at my body like a tux rental. This body isn’t mine. It was loaned to me here on earth to spread the news of Our gracious God but eventually it is turned back in and our souls vanish from it. Isn’t that what your tux does?
I’m very surprised they didn’t use my crying bits. Which is absolutely fine. I just thought that would for sure be what they wanted! Some of the questions were very deep and hard to think about. It’s to the place where I don’t let myself go often, the what if’s? And they were hard to answer, but I did. How does it feel to be 27 and diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor when you are a young mother? It’s very hard. But you stay positive and cling to every ounce of hope in your body and you just don’t let yourself “go there.” It’s just hard to get sad with everything that has happened. It’s hard to see this story end sadly when it’s been so happy (at least mostly happy).
Speaking of tenant, I hadn’t really seen the before and after until today, at least not that I remember. It’s pretty neat! In the world of glioblastoma it doesn’t mean much because “they always grow back.” But it’s not there now and this scan was a month ago so that’s good enough for me right now. God has this! I just know it!
Did you notice they didn’t say anything about it being cancer? Or glioblastoma? I think that’s a good thing. I think it just means my theory of it being past tense is right. Also, it doesn’t matter, but I’m 27. I am not as old as Michael (love you, darling!) 😛
Here is the link to watch the story again if you missed it or if you wanted the link! Please feel free to share it as much as you like. Share awareness and the love of the Lord!
A huge thank you to Dr. Sughrue for reaching out when he did and working a miracle, Travis for sharing our story and to ABC for picking up our story and sharing it in such a beautiful way. I can’t wait to look back on this in the years to come!
