Knowing that my PET scan was quickly approaching, I have spent a lot of time praying to be filled again with His sweet peace. He brought it to me in the beginning of this journey, and He has sustained me with it ever since. For over two years now I have relied on that peace and His strength to carry me, and my entire family, through this time. So, once again I was begging Him for renewed peace. No matter what the scan results show us, I know that I wanted to continue trusting Him.
I was filled with a special peace today. My appointments went well, and the scan went smoothly without overwhelming butterflies. I knew He was with me...right beside me while I sat, and carrying me as I walked. My sweet friends....you rallied,and He answered! Praise the Lord!!!!! For the first time after having a PET scan, we have received wonderful news! (And we've never received them on the same day!) The results are so hopeful and encouraging. I realize that I am not totally in the clear....but I believe this to be evidence of the miracle the Lord is working. I know much of the terminology will be confusing, but I thought it would be best for me to cut and paste what the actual report stated. I really like point 3. Oh, there is power in prayer....thank you, Lord! My heart is overwhelmed with praise to Him.
My next appointment is Monday...yes, I have been "promoted" from three appointments a week to two, and now down to one! I will let you know any more details that I learn. I know I still have a long road ahead of me, but I will give Him all the glory for this moment...for this wonderful news....and for the continuing work of a miracle.
The report stated:
1. Stable size and relative metabolism of right apical nodule and right , which are mildly metabolic, but not more so than the blood pool. These are favored to represent
postinflammatory changes after treatment.
2. Stable size of left lower lobe nodule measuring 7 mm, without increased metabolic activity. This may also represent treated disease or an unrelated infectious or inflammatory process.
3. No convincing evidence of recurrent or metastatic disease within the neck, chest, abdomen or pelvis.
Thank you Jesus for answering prayer and for your sweet peace!
I love you,
