Some Good News

Finally!  We had some good news today.  My blood tests were CLEAR! Praise You JESUS!

We met with the oncologist today.  He revealed so many things that have not been explained to us.    First, the lymph node that showed on my ultrasound is in my breast tissue.  Its is not the same lymph nodes (axillary nodes) the doctors look at to see if the cancer is spreading.  Those lymph nodes (axillary nodes) are not thought to be involved.  And, the doctor did not feel anything in those nodes during the manual exam.  He cautioned that we don’t know what is happening microscopically, but he didn’t expect them to come back with cancer.   Praise you Jesus!

Secondly, he explained the time frame and scheduling for chemo and radiation after the surgery. Those treatments are going to be a very long road, but it feels like it is manageable because we now know what  to expect.  However, we are believing that God will intervene and it won’t be needed.

The biggest news was when he looked me in the eyes and said “this is treatable and possibly curable”.  Praise you Jesus! He said he is upfront and honest with patients if he believes their cancer is not curable because people will choose  what they are willing to go through based on their outcome.  He believes this can be cured.  Praise you Jesus!

This journey has been emotional and exhausting.  But, we are believing God is going to continue to do a miracle and the doctors will be so confused all they will be able to do is give Him glory!

Even when I don’t see Him, even when I don’t hear Him, He is HERE working on my cancer and healing my body.

I can’t thank you all enough for your prayers, emails, voicemails and FB posts.  They are so encouraging and keep me uplifted.  I try to respond to every call or written contact, but at times, I just can’t keep up.  If you have contacted me and you haven’t heard back from me, please know that I appreciate your words, prayers and valuable information.   I will eventually get back with you…just have patience. I love you all and appreciate your support!

Believing and being healed!
