From suffocating to yelling in just 10 weeks
It's is difficult to comprehend that just ten weeks ago my daughter Lorelei was struggling to breathe. She had a massive (11 cm) conglomeration of cancerous lymph nodes in her chest that was pressing on her lungs and making it very difficult for her to breathe without coughing. (For comparison, a softball is only 9.75 cm in diameter.)
Today, after only five rounds of chemotherapy, she had a pulmonary function test and it revealed that she is operating at 135% of normal lung capacity! Pretty good evidence that those tumors are shrinking.
Tell me that is not a miracle.
And next week (on April 24) she gets to use those super-sized lungs to coach her Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team to victory over the Sacramento Kings which is what she wished for when Make-A-Wish asked her to wish for anything she wanted. She's likely the Thunder's biggest fan.
I like to think that God knew all along she'd need that extra lung capacity to yell at Perk.
