A peaceful “grab” shot from my favorite place in the entire world —- Santorini, Greece. I photographed this to look pastel and peaceful. My mind loves traveling to the Greek Islands that I love so much.
I am thanking all of you today for all your prayers and support. I also am thanking God for what seems like mostly good news from my oncologist today. I just got the email from him and I sure prayed before I read the news! Thank God for the news.
It seems the CAT Scan was basically stable. No appearances of any cancer metastasizing anywhere else….. and that IS really good news.
I will learn much more from the oncology visit this Monday. While “basically stable” sounds good, I have several major questions to address with him:
—We did 25 consecutive chemo/radiation day treatments aimed directly at the tumor…. it seems that would have REDUCED the tumor somehow rather than just stable? I will need to look at scans carefully with him.
—How can we get this so that I can eat ANYTHING? I have not swallowed one bit of food since March and that is the main reason I have lost so much weight. I get nutrition from a J tube with fluid bypassing my stomach direct into my colon, and that takes 15 hours hooked to a bag in the evening & overnight. I am hoping we can somehow find a way to eat something and have my stomach move it along. That would make my life so much better!
But I am happy with the news… and thankful. Still a long way to go to be cured, but so many people are praying for a miracle that I feel I have a small army behind me. And that feels so powerful and good.
Again, I hope that this blog continues to inspire others as people have problems & troubles in their life. I hope my positive nature can continue to help others — that would make me happy.
