The call finally came, the one Sierra had been waiting for. She was nervous and excited all at once. She worried the tests wouldn't read the way she had been praying, she worried her blood counts wouldn't be back to normal, but at the same time she had to hold on to that faith, the faith that saw her this far.
Lord get me through this, whatever I am about to hear help me get through this, and Lord if it's you're will let me go into remission again.
"Sierra it's the hospital, they have you're results in."
" I have it Serena." Sierra told her sister, all the while silently praying that everything would be okay.
" Is the doctors going to tell you you are better Aunt Sierra, is they?"
" I hope so Jamee."
" Me too. I don't like it when you're sick Aunt Sierra."
"I don't either."
" I need to talk to you." Sierra said leading her sister to the living room, along with her sisters husband and Jamee. Serena worried about what the results said.
"Are you okay Sierra? If it's bad news we will get through this all together. I won't ever stop fighting with you."
Sierra remained quiet for a couple of moments, but her quietness was driving Serena crazy.
"I'm in remission!" Sierra nearly shouted the words with joy.
Sierra was sitting with her Sister and Jamee, and Jacqueline had come too. They were all celebrating the fact that Sierra was in remission.
"I am proud of you, you have an amazing strength." Jacqueline told me.
" I only wish Kelly could be here to celebrate with us." Kelly had died five years earlier and would be a teenager now, but she had lost her battle with Cancer.
" She's celebrating with us in Heaven." Jacqueline told Sierra wiping tears away from her eyes.
" That she is."
" Aunt Jamee I am glad the doctors said you are better. We can go to the park and play again, right."
"We sure can Jamee."
Sierra sat back looking at her niece, her sister, Jacqueline, and her son, the little boy was looking more and more like Kelly everyday, and he would have a special place in Sierra's heart just as Jamee did, and Kelly had.
Lord thank you for the blessing, thank you for giving me the energy to fight this battle again. I could not have done that without you.
