You saw my blog yesterday about our fears of perhaps another tumor in my groin- stomach area. We were all concerned. So I had the CT Scan yesterday and had them rush the results today.
It was good news! My doctor reports no other growth at all. They think the hard area that they were worried about now must have been stool in the colon (sorry that is so graphic of a description). But no known place the cancer is metastasized from this CT Scan. Boy, cancer is a daily up & down journey for sure.
More good news also to report. The pancreatic tumor that on June 25th (when I found out about the cancer) measured 6.4 cm on the long side. Two months ago it measured 4.8 cm and yesterday now it is 4.0 cm (about 1 1/2 inches). So it still is shrinking and no growth in other places to report.
Golly, I feel blessed today! So many people were praying and I do believe prayer helps more than anything. And I will maintain my positive attitude. I feel like going out to the store and buying green bananas ! 🙂
Thank you to all of you for your warm thoughts & prayers. I need them and appreciate them. I feel that soon I will be back into my life as it was, traveling on assignments and lecturing when I can. I am lecturing for the first time since I heard the cancer news on October 26th at the Sanford Camera Club at 6:30pm. My lecture will be called “Come Visit Our Planet” and will be my all-time best travel images from over 40 years of traveling the globe. No mention of stock photography, no mention of money, just pictures that I hope will say, WOW, WOW, WOW. The address is 201 E. 1st Street in downtown Sanford.
I will have no hair, no mustache, and not as much energy as I usually do, but I still plan on inspiring everyone in the audience to live fully & see our Earth. I hand-picked these images for this new show.
I am off to rest now, but very happy with the good news. Cheers to all of you.
