It’s Back

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

    You rock! “No worries.”

    Your life is a reflection of God and His glory and honor. And yet … I am so sorry you find yourself in the midst of such trials and constant “surprise”. I imagine “bored” would be a welcome change!

    Thankful for your medical team. Thankful that your strength is from the Lord … and continuing to pray that you find yourself with people, in places and moments, of safety and trust that allow you to be weak.

    Praying for the PET scan … and your heart/mind!
    Much love, Christy

    Praying for your PET scan and that you get into the trial. A verse from Isaiah 32:17 this morning – “The fruit of righteousness will be peace, the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.” I pray that you will dwell in His quiet sanctuary far away from the hard press of all that you’re going through. You bring His presence & joy with you everywhere you are which shines and encourages others with His love and your faith strengthens others. To Him be the glory! His compassion NEVER fails.
    Love & fervent prayers,
    Gayle
