I was so shocked and surprised by my party Saturday night that I forgot to update all of you about my test results on Friday. The good news is I got some more information since then so it’s better news than I originally thought.
First, if you haven’t seen the video from Sunday’s post, talk about shock….that’s me!!! My friends did a great job at keeping a secret for weeks (hmmmm) and no one let it slip even once. The amazing part of that is several of them had breakfast at my place on Saturday morning and no one slipped. Maybe that’s why they were all so quiet over breakfast? Just kidding. On a serious note, I was completely awe struck at the outpouring of love my friends demonstrated. They touched me deeply during a season that has tested me to my core. I will never forget this year and not because of the cancer because of all of you that have poured into my life. I love you all.
Now on to the the forgotten post, my CT results…the cancer in lymph node is not showing up! That means that it is most likely shrinking. Two spots have developed on my lungs, don’t panic, let me explain. Both my oncologist and the radiation doctor believe these spots are from the radiation because they are in the radiation field. After further conversation with Dr. Munoz (radiation) these spots are probably scar tissue from the radiation. Although, we’d prefer them not be there, we will watch them. He says because they did not show “positive activity” during the PET scan (early January) he’s not overly concerned. He also confirmed that the spot in the lymph node not showing up means that it is shrinking. Yay God.
On another happy note, I started a new community group tonight at Watermark. I met 6 amazing women. I’m excited to see where this journey is taking us. I’m not surprised at all at the stories and how God may knit our lives together. I continue to celebrate all that He is doing through this season.
