A Search for Healing
The sound of the heavy wooden door opening
broke Tami from her meditation.
“Ms. Thomas, sorry you had to wait.” Dr. Myers, wearing his customary white jacket entered the room with a team of fellow doctors. Each of them made their way to Tami’s side and offered a hand in greeting.
“It is all right, Dr. Myers. The nurse said you had my results?” Tami clasped her hands together tightly and shoved them between her knees.
“Yes, as you know we were hoping that with the chemo
and radiation therapies we would be able to shrink the tumor on your lungs. At the very least keep it contained.”
“Yes, so how is it now? What did my tests show, Doctor?” She wished he would just get on with it and
“Well . . .,” Dr. Myers began, letting the word hang in the air for a moment, “we were all very astonished at
what we found actually.”
Tami scanned the faces of the other doctors in the room. In each face, she found the same thing . . . shock .
. . disbelief . . . amazement. She turned her gaze back to Dr. Myers. He now had such an exuberant smile on his face, Tami was sure his face would crack from the wideness of it.
“My dear, you had one of the most aggressive kinds of cancers there is and truthfully we did not think this treatment was going to work. By some miracle, however, your tests came back completely clear! You are completely cancer free, Tami!”
Emotion flooded over Tami as she realized God had dealt her a miracle.
