I received a call from my nurse this morning. It's not the greatest news, but I keep telling myself it could be worse. The main mass has grown .9 centimeters. The rest of the areas have remained the same (so while there is no shrinking....they have not grown either). I always try to prepare myself for news like this, but yet I also can't help but think of the possibility of my cancer shrinking or even disappearing. Although I wish the results were different, I can assure you that somehow there is still joy and peace in my heart. I would love to show and tell the world my story after complete healing, but perhaps the bigger impact comes even in the midst of the storm and less than desirable news. God works in mysterious ways, right?
Our appointment with the oncologist is Monday at 1:45 p.m. Please be praying that we would know what direction we are to take next...and just for peace and rest in the meantime. My God is still faithful....He will continue to carry us and make us stronger through this time.
I was blessed to spend the afternoon with one of the sweetest friends in the world. (Thanks Melissa!) She and her son came over for the afternoon so the kids could play and we could talk. Talk about great timing...we had this day planned not knowing what the results would be. The Lord knew just what I needed to lift my spirits and heart!
I will update after Monday with decisions that are made in terms of treatment. I thank you for being a part of my life!
