CT Scan/Bone Scan update

August 30, 2017 at 10:40 am (My ramblings)

Finally some good news! My scans show the majority of my tumors, minus the ones in both lungs, have shrunk and the ones in my bones are gone! This is great news because the more they shrink in the beginning and on one particular chemo, the longer I can be on it and not have to switch to another one. That was a horrible sentence so let me try to explain it better. 😳 I’ve been on Taxol chemo since my cancer came back 6 months ago. Since the tumors are still shrinking, I can stay on this chemo until it stops working. Once the tumors start coming back, I’ll have to switch to another chemo. Hopefully, I can get 9 months to a year out of this one before having to switch. Once I switch, I might only get 6 months before it stops working and the tumors start coming back again then another switch then possibly 3 months until they come back, etc.. each time becoming shorter. So the longer the first one works, the better. Once chemo no longer works, the tumors will all come back then I’ll start having problems related to the organs the tumors are in.

For now, I’m going to rejoice and try my best to not think about the future. It’s hard to continually take my thoughts captive but it is an absolute necessity. I have to repeat Philippians 4:8 constantly:

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Thank you so much for all your prayers as they are truly sustaining me. I have mostly good days and a few bad but I always take comfort in my Heavenly Father and the love He has for me.

    You would think the tumors would learn their lesson by now since you keep kicking their butts!

    Hi Pinkninja! We’ve been through this journey together, and it’s made our faith stronger! We’ve learned what our Lord meant when he said he would never leave or forsake us! For everything we’ve lost, we’ve gained more trust in his provision. We know that when our time draws near we will be sad to leave our loved ones but we will walk into eternity with him.
    In the meantime, we fight on!

    Steve and I continue to pray for you almost every day – I probably pray more because I’m reminded everytime I see your instagrams 🙂 Praying for Ken too, and your whole family. What a testimony you are of the power of prayer, and the power of choosing to keep your thoughts captive to Christ. I admire you and love you so much.
