Results are in….the spot is malignant. No worries, Dr. Laidley has an action plan. PET scan tomorrow morning, surgery on Monday and she’s trying to get me into a clinical trial. They are optimistic that the spot can be removed and radiation is the best fight against it for now. In addition, my case is being presented to get me into clinical trial for Triple Negative Breast Cancer. After research it looks like this could be an effective treatment. It is a trial for metastasized breast cancer and although my doctor ensures me that I do not have that it is proven successful to rebuild DNA to stop the growth of tumors. So it will take some convincing from Dr. Laidley to get me into the study. My prayer is that I would be admitted into the clinical trial.
I continue to depend on the Lord in my time of need. As I was processing thru the possibilities last night, there were many times that I found myself discouraged but immediately prayed that God would renew and restore my body. This morning I was encouraged in His word. My morning devotion reminded me that I can achieve the victorious life through living dependent on Him. As I read, I was encouraged and then I went to the scripture and He brought it all home for me. This scripture is one that He gave me last year during a painful season….
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” — Psalm 34:17-18
That scripture was a reminder of what I had been through; But it was the verses that followed that gave me hope that surpasses all understanding…
“A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.” — Psalm 19-20
“We live by faith, not by sight.” — 2 Corinthians 5:7
