Hello dear friends,
I write with joyful news. My abdominal cat scans came back negative. I feel as though the dark clouds have been blown away and the new day is beautiful. I was fearful as my second blood tests showed higher liver enzymes. It appears there are only fatty changes in my liver, and I need to loose weight (what a shocker to me...lol) Anyway, I am giving God all the praise, because initially I had desired bone scans and CAT scans, but it wasn't recommended because my tumor was not really indicative of these tests (so said the oncologist) but as you know it's nice to have all the information you can about your body...especially if there's a chance of catching the cancer at early stages. Anyway, due to the arm pain (which is still being investigated) and elevated liver enzymes, all the tests I had wanted, were done. So I think of the phrase, "Be careful what you pray for...." It was a rough couple of months..between waiting and the looks on the doctors faces when they reported higher enzymes than a few weeks earlier...Now I am glad to know something more definitive. And please know that although I have not posted personally, I have been reading and praying for you, as I will continue to do. I know that God is faithful and He will not allow those who know Him to walk alone. I am grateful for all who have kept in touch. You are blessings to me. I will let you know how things progress.
