Thank you all for your prayers and messages. I feel very loved by all.
It was a bit of a nerve-racking day that built up to great anticipation. I was able to get a nap in before my appointment which was a definitely a blessing from the Lord. In a time of angst to be able to step away and rest your mind and body is a big task. I awoke from my nap to find John and my parents visiting. That was a sweet moment. Life is good.
We arrived at the appointment and were taken right in with not wait. As we waited in the exam room, the feeling of angst was on the rise. John sensing our anxious hearts began to pray over us. It was a sweet moment to be reminded that we’re not in control.
The doctor arrived and made the round of introductions. He then proceeded to visit and address the purpose of the day. We talked through a couple of things, but mostly the options of clinical trials or radiation with another chemo drug. There is not a clear-cut clinical trial that would be my best option. We will start radiation tomorrow at 11:30 a. I will go for 14-15 treatments everyday, Monday through Friday. Dr. Kerr has ordered another PET scan to determine if there are any new developments and a spinal scan to determine if the mets have move into the spinal cord. Please pray against both of those. I’m praying for no new developments.
Tonight I rest in knowing that we move forward with treatment and that God is control.
