Thank You Heavenly Father and Thank You to all my friends in blog land for all your prayers and well wishes. I saw the doctor today and was told the MRIs did not show any cancer in my bones. I must tell you all I have been terrified the results would not be so good. They are now positive the cancer is only in the one area in my lung, the rest of my body is cancer free. Now I know I will beat this thing. I feel like I’ve been hanging on by my finger tips and holding my breath for well over a week. I think I was more afraid then even I thought I was. The relief is overwhelming.
When the doctor told me the news I squeezed Jim’s hand so hard I am sure it is bruised. I wept like a baby and praised the Lord and thanked Him out loud. Not sure my doctor appreciated the fuss I made but I really don’t care. I have cried tears of joy off and on ever since.
Unfortunately I still have no clue when my treatment will begin. I don’t understand how things work at the cancer center but I have to have faith that they know what they are doing. I am to see my radiologist in a week and my oncologist a week later. After I do he will submit the request for approval for Chemo to my insurance. I truly don’t understand why he needs to wait two weeks to submit the request. I just hope and pray my insurance company will respond quickly.
This is frustrating to say the least. I’ve never in my life wanted something so badly that at the same time I truly wish I could avoid altogether. I can’t help but think this monster is growing inside me and without treatment I can’t stop it. As I said Frustrating. Still I am sincerely grateful for the news I got today and I believe I will sleep well tonight.
Thank you all for the lovely cards I’ve received from around the world. You ladies are absolutely amazing and with your love and support I know I will get to the center of my nasty onion and crush the center until it is no more.
Much Love and Many Blessings
