ANSWERED PRAYER! Seriously, there isn't. When you labor in prayer over something and realize it has been answered. It's the best thing in the world. With very very grateful hearts tonight we are sooo thankful to announce that the cyst on Kate's brain is GONE! We are amazed and I'm still trying to soak it in. We knew that our prayers were going to be answered but I honestly didn't think it would be this soon. We have been filled with so much hope since day 1 with this pregnancy and if anything we have been filled with even more hope since we found out about the cyst. Before we went into the ultrasound today I got a call from a really great family friend, Aron. Our sweet friend from Africa (who I will blog about soon!). I told him that we were about to go in for the ultrasound and told him about the cyst. The first words out of his mouth were "Nikki, don't believe it. The enemy is a liar and he is trying to steal your joy! Don't believe it! She is perfect." It was so confirming to me. We walked into the ultrasound suite with confidence and joy. It was just a great experience. It lasted about 25 minutes, the tech measured everything and at the end I asked if she saw the cyst (we talked about everything she was looking for prior to the ultrasound) and she nodded her head no with a smile. She went back over the brain to show us that the cyst is gone! And it is!! Clean slate! It is an absolute miracle. The cyst was there on Friday, just 5 days ago but now it is gone! Her brain looks perfect. They say the earliest these cysts normally go away is 26 weeks and I am on week 20. Once again, a miracle. We don't have the official results from my doctor but this tech was fabulous and was very confident and tried her best to tell us that she looks great, not to worry. We are so relieved and just so thankful. Its overwhelming to think about. The God of the universe cares so much about us, He didn't want us to worry about this and be upset about it for another minute so He healed her. We are undeserving and so thankful. What a testimony it will be to tell Kate, we can't wait! It is so evident that the Lord is holding her in His hands and knitting her together perfectly! So, it is with VERY grateful hearts that we thank you. Thank you for standing firm with us and praying for this cyst to be gone. Prayer is amazing. God is real. Never ever under estimate the Lord and the power of prayer.
