I am counting all good progress as victories in this battle! In the last couple of days I have been miraculously able to secure appointments with all of the 3 Dr's that I wanted to get in to. (for this huge surgery and HIPEC chemo) I have researched so much and I am confident that I will be meeting with at least 2 of the top 3 in the nation for this procedure!! These are very niche specialists and getting appointments in their offices is quite the task. Strange things happened and connections were made where I actually got in...and my appointments start this next monday. I am so grateful they cleared room for me so that I can get more questions answered quickly.
I have been guided in my path and recognize so strongly that I am not walking this path alone. I have never before felt so strongly that my Father in Heaven is aware of me..
I have also made contact with a new wonderful friend that has given me great hope. She is my age, has my cancer, and was diagnosed at about the same progression of the cancer. She had the surgery and chemo and has been 4+ years cancer FREE!! I don't even know how to explain how our paths crossed...but I so badly needed to hear her story and experience. I have been lucky enough to talk/email a few different people who have been through this process and they are so willing to share support, information, and encouragement. I am grateful...SO grateful...to all of them.
Monday and Tuesday I have big appointments all over state...and I should get more information. I feel good about this week's progress...and I am gaining strength each day! I WILL beat this!!
